Cheesy effects, Unnecessary gore (and I love gore), boring. Save your money....for what it's worth I did laugh at it in a B movie sort of way

I rate this a B+. I liked that they re-imagined the story and brought humor to it. Good action sequences. However I must caution there are a moe than a few F-bombs if you are planning on taking pre-teens. Overall quite enjoyable.

This looked really good in the previews but I was very unimpressed. The story line was awful! Nice 3D makes it a so so if you have nothing else worth watching.

Even with low expectations, Hansel & Gretel is corny, simple, predictable, and poorly acted.
A few good one liners and action scenes are overridden by bad one liners, repetitive fight scenes, and really, really bad CGI. I also don't think thigh thick branches of wood are supposed to flop as if they are made of rubber.
The only redeeming quality of this movie is the R rating that keeps it from being a total snore fest. Pass on this one.
If you like my reviews, add me as a fan. I'll add you back!

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.
