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.

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.

Lots of action

If you're seeing this movie purely for entertainment then you are already on the right track. Its definitely a different take on the Grimm's tale but its a good one. I love Jeremy Renner and he doesn't disappoint in this film. But I think Gemma's Gretal overshadows him. She was really good in this movie and fun to watch. One dim spot is that its predictable but you sort of forget that with all the action scenes. At least until you get to the end and then you're like, "Oh yeah....I knew that would happen". But, they leave it open for a sequel that I will definitely watch. I just might wait for it on DVD instead of the theater experience.

It's exactly what you think!

This movie is so fun!! Yes, the premiss is ridiculous, but it is well executed and doesn't take itself to seriously. Honestly, I don't understand why Jeremy Renner is being shoved down our throats in every other movie and role but he does all right in this one! And Gemma Arterton is great!!! And everything is better with Famke Janssen!!! Just wish she was in more of the movie! The story is interesting and fun and the cinematography is very well done!! Yes, the language is extreme for the time period and most of the weapons could not possibly have existed, but are you really looking at this movie as a true period piece?? Get over yourselves, and go see it!! You'll have a good time and we could all use a little more fun right now!!

Corny but entertaining

The movie was a bit corny and the witches were a little over the top, but it was entertaining. The movie does not seem to take itself too seriously. The witch fights were fast paced. I thought the witches were too exaggerated for my liking, but all in all it was entertaining. A short review, but thats really all there is - fighting witches.
