I really enjoyed this movie. Gemma A. what a beauty. Very good actress. Jeremy R. career, very versatile. The two had good chemistry. Action moved along at a good pace. Love the twist and sensuality of the movie fairy tale. Go see and enjoy. I wouldn't take the youngsters.

I'm not a fan of horror movies and this one isn't your traditional horror movie, but I was concerned that I wouldn't like it. I did like it. It kept my attention to the very end. Very good movie.

It is an interesting twist on an old tale. Some of the action was a little unbelievable but it did not detract too much from the film. It was great fun to see Gemma Atherton as a strong character. Renner was his usual self, comfortable being a tough guy. Might have wanted to see more of the good witch side in this movie. It was just too easy for the bad witch to take out the good witch. And the original good witch was a little silly, giving up without a fight. If you are going to get torched might as well bake a few cookies yourself. My favorite character though was Edward, not sure why, but Edward added a lot to the story.

I knew this movie would not be good and didnt want to go- but my friend insisted. we both were going to go to another one however, then I began reading some faulty and stupid reviews which changed my mind- bad move. I saw it in imax 3d, and though the imax was good, it wasn't for this movie. First off..it was almost like a horror movie in 3d. the grotesque visuals of the witches was just awful- it was too disgusting and hard to sit through. This is more a movie for those who aren't sensitive. the movie isn't predictable, or anything- the entire story is just really really STUPID and pointless. really? witch hunters? it was pathetic and weird and even the concocted story for entertainment value was horrible. it was barely entertaining because of the goriness of the movie and the witches. I found it to be a pointless movie which even lacked entertainment value. I didn't want to go in the first place and never would again...that's 1.5 hours of my life i can't get back...

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.
