Thought they did a good job with the story. Granted there are some gaping holes & it will not win any awards but it's great fun. Hopefully when it comes out on DVD or Blueray the extended scenes will take care of it.

I rate this a B+. I liked that they re-imagined the story and brought humor to it. Good action sequences. However I must caution there are a moe than a few F-bombs if you are planning on taking pre-teens. Overall quite enjoyable.

This looked really good in the previews but I was very unimpressed. The story line was awful! Nice 3D makes it a so so if you have nothing else worth watching.

Even with low expectations, Hansel & Gretel is corny, simple, predictable, and poorly acted.
A few good one liners and action scenes are overridden by bad one liners, repetitive fight scenes, and really, really bad CGI. I also don't think thigh thick branches of wood are supposed to flop as if they are made of rubber.
The only redeeming quality of this movie is the R rating that keeps it from being a total snore fest. Pass on this one.
If you like my reviews, add me as a fan. I'll add you back!

While this movie was an interesting take on the fairy tale (which I like) and full of action (which I love), it kind of fell flat. I don't expect a fairy tale movie to be anything even remotely resembling historically accurate, but this one took anachronism to the extreme. The liberal sprinkling of the F-bomb only made it worse. I love the actors in this and the story was decent, but the overall impression was awful. I had to go watch another movie just to get this one out of my head.
