Fun movie. Lots of action. Nice twist at the end. In my town, it's already a big hit with high school and college kids. My two college-aged daughters loved it. Definitely not a movie for young children. Witches are pretty scary even for adults.

Thoroughly enjoyed this movie. Good cast, good writing, the set lighting was bad at times making it difficult to tell what ws happening on screen, but still a very entertaining distraction for an afternoon. I will be recommending this to my friends.

We liked it! But we like those cheesy movies, like Twlight(THIS IS WAY BETTER), Van Helsen,.
Will watch part 2 , if they make it.
R for the "F word" about 5 times.

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.

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.
