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.

I tend to like sci-fi, fantasy, action, historical and the like. This film butchers all the genres except horror, perhaps...except everyone knows what's coming next, it's just gore. Not funny enough to be campy, not self-indulgent enough to be clearly showing they get how bad it is. Not funny. No plot line. Almost everyone in the theatre (not many) were grumbling on the way out. My date said it was the worst movie they'd ever seen about midway through...and it didn't improve.

I give this movie a C+ rating. Overall. this movie isn't for children, and is rather violent. I especially loved the opening credit graphics. The overall sound, visuals, and soundtrack were above average, as well as the amusing story plot. Go and see this!

I ENJOYED THE MOVIEN VERY MUCH. IT WAS GREAT AND FILLED WITH ACTION. I DO NOT RECOMMEND IT FOR SMALL CHILDREN OR CHILDREN UNDER 13, THE VIOLENCE IS VERY GRAPHIC.

Definitely a new twist on the fairy tale, but ... didn't love it. Don't know what I was expecting, but just didn't do it for me. Slightly entertaining but mostly boring. Kinda spoofy. A little corny. Somewhat predictable. A pinch of gory. Glad I had a free ticket.
