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.

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.

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!

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.

Don't look for the cure to Cancer in this movie! It was fun, and a great take on Hansel and Gretel! Loved the action and the unique take on all new action fighters. I love the fact that they actually cussed in the movie and didn't try to weigh it down with old style speech. They actually say F**K!!! It's awesoime! It kept things fresh and fun. Definitely a good flick! Very entertaining!
