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.

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!

Although the movie was made well, great special affects and the actors did a good job, the movie was very predictible and after the first or second witch hunt ...extremely boring. Not for little kids as the blood and guts was ongoing.

This movie was a lot of fun. It was definitely in the Van Helsing style. Modern action and language set in the past. It's something I personally like, but it's not for everyone. Gretel is definitely hott and sassy.

Fun movie. Lots of action. Nice twist at the end. In my town, it's already a big hit with high school and college kids. My two college-aged daughters loved it. Definitely not a movie for young children. Witches are pretty scary even for adults.
