I don't understand why some movies get such low ratings from critics. Its almost as if its not a "life-affirming" movie or if its not the new types of movies that make you wonder what the hell the movie was even about-the critics don't like it.
This movie isn't an award-winning movie by any means but that doesn't mean it isn't entertaining. Its a very neat twist on an old fairy tale. The cast is great & the story is fun. It's what its meant to be....just 90 minutes of entertainment. It has action, suspense, love, witchcraft & a** kicking. I enjoyed it. It isn't for little kids b/c of nudity but it is worth a watch if you like these types of movies! Enjoy!!

Don't look for the cure to Cancer in this movie! It was fun, and a great take on Hansel and Gretel! Loved the action and the unique take on all new action fighters. I love the fact that they actually cussed in the movie and didn't try to weigh it down with old style speech. They actually say F**K!!! It's awesoime! It kept things fresh and fun. Definitely a good flick! Very entertaining!

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.

I tend to like sci-fi, fantasy, action, historical and the like. This film butchers all the genres except horror, perhaps...except everyone knows what's coming next, it's just gore. Not funny enough to be campy, not self-indulgent enough to be clearly showing they get how bad it is. Not funny. No plot line. Almost everyone in the theatre (not many) were grumbling on the way out. My date said it was the worst movie they'd ever seen about midway through...and it didn't improve.

I give this movie a C+ rating. Overall. this movie isn't for children, and is rather violent. I especially loved the opening credit graphics. The overall sound, visuals, and soundtrack were above average, as well as the amusing story plot. Go and see this!
