Fun movie. Nothing else, think Van Helsing with more gore and cursing. Weak plot, Jeremy Renner was the only actor that I saw on the screen who was acting, and a very short film. Remember when seeing it, silly humor and close up action, hard to see whats going on, its an MTV movie after all.

Thoroughly enjoyed this movie. Good cast, good writing, the set lighting was bad at times making it difficult to tell what ws happening on screen, but still a very entertaining distraction for an afternoon. I will be recommending this to my friends.

I will tell you, this is a great action packed novelty movie. They did a great job developing the plot and characters. Don't wait around for Redbox, this one is worth the 12 bucks at the theater.

Last night, I agreed to go see Hansel & Gretel, reluctantly. Before going, I looked up the rottentomatoes page and saw it only got a 15 percent fresh rating. That's pretty bad. Even Van Helsing got a 22%. So, the bar was set pretty low.
I didn't hate the movie. It was entertaining and I don't consider it a total waste of money and time. The soundtrack was cheesy at times and the rest of the time it was techno/rock. The acting was alright. There's was nothing hugely moving about any of the performances. I really like the art direction. The look of the witches were pretty awesome. The troll reminder me of Bluto from Labryinth in his mannerisms and speech. The amount of gore and nudity was fine with me. As far as the plot is concerned, it wasn't terrible, but it wasn't anything groundbreaking.
I liked the movie more than I liked Van Helsing, definitely. I think it's something that can wait to rent on video.

I was really apprehensive about seeing this because I didn't think that it would be that great. I was very pleasantly surprised when I found that I was wrong. The writers did a great job of taking this child's tale which was creepy as a kid and turning it into an awesome adult movie. I know that the parents who took their kids felt pretty bad about a quarter way into the movie for having them their. It was funny, action packed and well acted. Definitely worth seeing in theaters.
