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.

There were a few funny moments. The movie looked beautiful and the acting was good. There were a few key plot moments that I knew before they unfolded but it was still good.

What could have been a fun, interesting twist on the fairy tale became a graphic gore-fest a la Freddie Kruger. There is no point in talking about acting, plots or anything else. I am not particularly squeamish and I found it hard to watch. If movie making has come to this people will stay home and rent something, anything, better.

I love this movie & I'm usually the first to nit pick at movie based on fairy tales or books. It was a continuous pace, no boring lag time & it had a lot of action sequences. I seriously love the little stuff like "sugar sickness" & the way they both got there assess kicked. Even tho a lot of the story line is predictable, it doesn't take away from it. It was so well done you barely had time to register your victory at being right. The actors were very likable as their characters but I must admit that at times the chemistry between the 2 main actors bordered on awkward. During a couple of scenes I didn't feel the brotherly sisterly love, instead I was left sitting there feeling a tad uncomfortable & thinking they might have been better suited for a different storyline or different characters. Not to say Jeremy Renner wasn't a great Hansel or that Gemma Arterton was the best damn Gretel yet but I noticed my friend and I awkwardly glancing at each other thru certain scenes between the 2.
