Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters

By stevendbeard

This is an action/adventure/fairy tale that is an entertaining movie , although not too historically accurate [I'm betting that the writers might have missed a few of their History classes in high school] . It sort of reminded me of the 2011 remake of 'The Three Musketeers' [with Milla Jovovich] where they have gadgets and weapons that were not in those time periods , but they are kind of neat [and let's face it , this is not a documentary] . Anyway , the story covers what happens after the original fairy tale of Hansel & Gretel , when the kids are all grown up . Jeremy & Gemma play the adult witch killers that have made a business out of killing witches and travel from town to town , selling their witch killing skills [kind of like bounty hunters] . Peter plays the sheriff in a witch-infested town . The leader of the witches is played by Famke , the biggest and the baddest witch around . This is not for the little kiddies [language, nudity, violence] .

Cool Movie

Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunters is a funny and exciting movie. Who would've thought that a classic fairy tale would be twisted and given more suspense and action? Jermey Renner as Hansel was very good and I like his sense of humor, I look forward to see him in future movies. Aslo actress Gemma Arterton was impressive as Gretel.

Very exciting Movie

I'm not a fan of horror movies and this one isn't your traditional horror movie, but I was concerned that I wouldn't like it. I did like it. It kept my attention to the very end. Very good movie.

It is an interesting twist on an old tale. Some of the action was a little unbelievable but it did not detract too much from the film. It was great fun to see Gemma Atherton as a strong character. Renner was his usual self, comfortable being a tough guy. Might have wanted to see more of the good witch side in this movie. It was just too easy for the bad witch to take out the good witch. And the original good witch was a little silly, giving up without a fight. If you are going to get torched might as well bake a few cookies yourself. My favorite character though was Edward, not sure why, but Edward added a lot to the story.

too gory, stupid, pointless, grotesque

I knew this movie would not be good and didnt want to go- but my friend insisted. we both were going to go to another one however, then I began reading some faulty and stupid reviews which changed my mind- bad move. I saw it in imax 3d, and though the imax was good, it wasn't for this movie. First was almost like a horror movie in 3d. the grotesque visuals of the witches was just awful- it was too disgusting and hard to sit through. This is more a movie for those who aren't sensitive. the movie isn't predictable, or anything- the entire story is just really really STUPID and pointless. really? witch hunters? it was pathetic and weird and even the concocted story for entertainment value was horrible. it was barely entertaining because of the goriness of the movie and the witches. I found it to be a pointless movie which even lacked entertainment value. I didn't want to go in the first place and never would again...that's 1.5 hours of my life i can't get back...
