I was expecting this to a movie that I could not take my eyes off the sceen, but it was a movie that I coluld have waited to come out on DVD. It was another movie that the previews sucked you in but thats was just it the shouwed all the best parts in the preview and with its run time of 1hr and 40m its was not worth it.

Made Well but very perdictable

Although the movie was made well, great special affects and the actors did a good job, the movie was very predictible and after the first or second witch hunt ...extremely boring. Not for little kids as the blood and guts was ongoing.

Fun Movie

This movie was a lot of fun. It was definitely in the Van Helsing style. Modern action and language set in the past. It's something I personally like, but it's not for everyone. Gretel is definitely hott and sassy.

Definitely a new twist on the fairy tale, but ... didn't love it. Don't know what I was expecting, but just didn't do it for me. Slightly entertaining but mostly boring. Kinda spoofy. A little corny. Somewhat predictable. A pinch of gory. Glad I had a free ticket.

Save Room for Dessert

My prediction: Hansel & Gretel will not be nominated for Best Picture. That said, it is and over-the-top, entertaining and action packed good time. This is by far the most interesting and inspiring portrayal of witches since the Wizard of Oz. The fight scenes are fast-paced and incredibly well done. My only complaints are that 1) towards the end it seems a bit rushed, and 2) there could have been more relationship and chemistry established between Hansel (Renner) and Gretel (Arterton). Arterton totally steals the show with by alternating her foul mouth and blunt wit with lilting girliness and vulnerability.
