Boston Globe

By Tom Russo
Wirkola tears through Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters with such giddy abandon, it ends up being splattery fanboy fun. Preposterous, clearly, but fun.

Entertainment Weekly

An intermittently fun, but overexcited and predictable mish-mash.

The Hollywood Reporter

By Stephen Farber
The film is smart enough not to wear out its welcome. But that's the only sign of true intelligence in this juvenile caper.

Even if he's slumming, Renner gets it best: his dry delivery fully acknowledges the movie's ridiculousness. If you're planning on entering this fractured fairy tale, you'll want to follow his lead.

A rarely funny spoof that's heavy on bone-crushing and blood-gushing.

Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters is more Gatling guns and grenades than The Brothers Grimm.

New York Observer

By Rex Reed
In an age of zombies, werewolves and oversexed vampires, teens won't be shaking in their Uggs over ugly women with bad teeth flying around on brooms, and with its graphic depictions of tortures, mutilations, gang rapes and myriad examples of child abuse, it's no longer a fairy tale suitable for children.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

By Liam Lacey
The film can't be accused of taking itself seriously. Shot in 3-D, with lots of choppy action, a rudimentary plot, and plenty of CGI-shape-shifting, it comes in at a brisk, disposable 88 minutes.

USA Today

By Claudia Puig
This genre stew throws in so many ingredients - including sundry body parts that are cut off and go flying, and heads that explode - that the result is a tasteless mash-up that's hard to stomach.

Rolling Stone

By Peter Travers
What to say about this lame-brained, limp dick attempt to update a classic Brothers Grimm tale into an f-bomb throwing vomit-inducing 3D franchise? I say, screw the damn thing and run the other way.
