Please skip this one. Gemma's simply showing a cute face in most of the scenes. Renner is not acting either. Action sequences not very well coordinated. The grand witch is the only one who seems to be acting. It's a fantasy film which tries to project itself as an action flick but miserably fails at both.

I usually like both lead actors, but this was such a waste of time. It didn't need the language and it didn't need the nudity. And then, of course, was the muppet-like ogre. Seriously? This movie is just one more bit of proof that it is impossible for MTV to make anything that's not garbage. What a complete waste of time & money.

Has everything you want in a horror film! Fast pace, atmospheric, interesting characters plus the added bonus of a troll, who was pretty realistic. Nice end credit song as well.

This film gets points for holding an audience's attention. The premise is hardly believable to one older than 10. Based upon the violence alone, no one that young should be seeing this film anyway. It wouldn't be fair to comment on the screenplay or talent's performances here because the producers couldn't possibly have been serious about either one, based upon the resultant product. Visually, this film is entertaining but that's basically where the E factor ends. Is it worth the price of a ticket? Not in my opinion. I'd wait for the disk, cable or stream. You'll be glad you did.

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.
