This was a fun movie and added a nice twist to the "Hansel and Gretel" story we have all heard and read. We have a brother and a sister who are on a mission to take down every witch there is in the area who are taking the children from the local town. They have seen it all, they have witnessed it, and now they must band together with the locals to stop the evil from spreading. You have blood, guts, action, and romance!! It is set in a town in the 1700's and has beautiful scenery. If you want a fun story, go check out this new flick. The acting isn't the best, but that shouldn't stop you from buying a ticket. I enjoyed it and will buy it once it comes out in DVD. Go see it in 3-D! Everybody loves guts and bullets coming at you on screen. Keep the kiddies at home, there is nudity and way too much violence. Fun movie!

My husband and I went to see this for a belated Valentines date movie and both enjoyed it. Unlike some of the other reviewers, we weren't looking for a serious period piece--heck, it's Hansel and Gretel, for goodness sake. The humor was campy and the violence was certainly not appropriate for the younger set (my seven year old will NOT be seeing this movie). That being said, it had a steampunk vibe similar to Van Helsing, lush landscape, and gorgeous actresses that certainly served as eye candy. All in all, a fun romp that made for a great night out.

Not great, by any means, but Gemma and Jeremy have good chemistry and it's a fun concept. The *!! critics will hate it but I definitely enjoyed it.

I enjoyed it a lot. You have to leave old "Aunt Martha" outside and let you inner kid enjoy it. Lots of Witch-Fu action scenes. Beautiful special effects and great characters. I'd love to see a sequel. I'll go back to see it in 3D if I get a chance. I'm just not paying $16+. They got to bring down those ticket prices. Very sparce attendence in the whole theater. Cut the ticket-prices and fill the theaters. But go see this one if you like fantasy adventures.

I thought this was an entertaining viewpoint on what happened to Hansel and Gretel when they grew up. Movie uses lots of modern language..no "thees and thous" and some pretty cool weapons. Still is a good vs evil..might be a little intense for younger kids, as the R rating is deserved. The humor also makes it enjoyable, and good does conquer evil.
