Enjoyable Far-Fetched Action Adventure

Hansel and Gretel didn't try too hard to be something it wasn't. A lot of fighting, action and gore with a not-too-surprising plot. The anachronistic weapons bothered my husband (a knowledgeable gun guy) but to me, it just fit the feel of the movie. Not for younger kids who will be terrified by the amazing CGI and make-up effects. The witches are visually terrifying and stunning.

Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters

Visually, the movie was pretty entertaining. I wouldn't go out my way to see it again as there are other movies coming out in the approaching weeks. It reminded me of the movie "Van Helsing" from a few years back but not as cheesy. Two things the film makers could've worked on a little more to make the movie a little less lightweight: first, the fight scenes. The fight choreographers could've at least come up with a fighting style that although is based on martial arts, should make the fighters (especially the lead characters) look more like experienced brawlers than martial arts masters. Some fight scenes looked like something out of a chop-sockey, period kung-fu movie. Next, is dialog. The movie would've greatly benefited using dialog/speech appropriate to the time period and location, even if only sparsely used. As for the target audience, I say 17 yrs. and up. Gretel drops the "F" bomb in a early scene and there was one scene with some nudity. Oherwise a rocking good time!

Not a kids movie...

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.

The movie is good when it came to special effects. But as a story line it was like growing up in the fast lane. Not enough there to justify the story.
