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!

Thoroughly enjoyed this movie. Good cast, good writing, the set lighting was bad at times making it difficult to tell what ws happening on screen, but still a very entertaining distraction for an afternoon. I will be recommending this to my friends.

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.

The movie was a bit corny and the witches were a little over the top, but it was entertaining.
The movie does not seem to take itself too seriously. The witch fights were fast paced. I thought the witches were too exaggerated for my liking, but all in all it was entertaining.
A short review, but thats really all there is - fighting witches.

Last night, I agreed to go see Hansel & Gretel, reluctantly. Before going, I looked up the rottentomatoes page and saw it only got a 15 percent fresh rating. That's pretty bad. Even Van Helsing got a 22%. So, the bar was set pretty low.
I didn't hate the movie. It was entertaining and I don't consider it a total waste of money and time. The soundtrack was cheesy at times and the rest of the time it was techno/rock. The acting was alright. There's was nothing hugely moving about any of the performances. I really like the art direction. The look of the witches were pretty awesome. The troll reminder me of Bluto from Labryinth in his mannerisms and speech. The amount of gore and nudity was fine with me. As far as the plot is concerned, it wasn't terrible, but it wasn't anything groundbreaking.
I liked the movie more than I liked Van Helsing, definitely. I think it's something that can wait to rent on video.
