I rate this a B+. I liked that they re-imagined the story and brought humor to it. Good action sequences. However I must caution there are a moe than a few F-bombs if you are planning on taking pre-teens. Overall quite enjoyable.

This looked really good in the previews but I was very unimpressed. The story line was awful! Nice 3D makes it a so so if you have nothing else worth watching.

This movie was terrible!

While this movie was an interesting take on the fairy tale (which I like) and full of action (which I love), it kind of fell flat. I don't expect a fairy tale movie to be anything even remotely resembling historically accurate, but this one took anachronism to the extreme. The liberal sprinkling of the F-bomb only made it worse. I love the actors in this and the story was decent, but the overall impression was awful. I had to go watch another movie just to get this one out of my head.

Classic Tale!

This was a fun movie and added a nice twist to the "Hansel and Gretel" story we have all heard and read. We have a brother and a sister who are on a mission to take down every witch there is in the area who are taking the children from the local town. They have seen it all, they have witnessed it, and now they must band together with the locals to stop the evil from spreading. You have blood, guts, action, and romance!! It is set in a town in the 1700's and has beautiful scenery. If you want a fun story, go check out this new flick. The acting isn't the best, but that shouldn't stop you from buying a ticket. I enjoyed it and will buy it once it comes out in DVD. Go see it in 3-D! Everybody loves guts and bullets coming at you on screen. Keep the kiddies at home, there is nudity and way too much violence. Fun movie!

Should have been left in the woods

Even with low expectations, Hansel & Gretel is corny, simple, predictable, and poorly acted. A few good one liners and action scenes are overridden by bad one liners, repetitive fight scenes, and really, really bad CGI. I also don't think thigh thick branches of wood are supposed to flop as if they are made of rubber. The only redeeming quality of this movie is the R rating that keeps it from being a total snore fest. Pass on this one. If you like my reviews, add me as a fan. I'll add you back!
