Not a kids movie...

I was really apprehensive about seeing this because I didn't think that it would be that great. I was very pleasantly surprised when I found that I was wrong. The writers did a great job of taking this child's tale which was creepy as a kid and turning it into an awesome adult movie. I know that the parents who took their kids felt pretty bad about a quarter way into the movie for having them their. It was funny, action packed and well acted. Definitely worth seeing in theaters.

Fairy tale or Nightmare?

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.

Unbelievably Bad

This movie proves, once and for all, that you can make a special-effects-heavy action movie out of anything. The children's tale of Hansel and Gretel seems like a likely candidate for story massacring, but it just doesn't work here. The witches are turned into magic-wielding villans who fly around and kill children for ritual sport. I sat back in my seat in amazement at how bad this movie was and yet no one in the theater was leaving, including myself. I supposed we were all glued to the seat with shock. There's no other explanation.

Hansel and Gretel

Good action, has comical parts to it, actors did a good job but the backside nudity and some un-needed language...let's face it, back in that time period I don't think that the 'f' bomb would have been part of the language of the day...keeps me from suggesting an automatic go or must go. I was entertained and dismayed at the same time. The movie would have been just as good, if not better, without the nudity and language.
