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

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...

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.

Should have been left in the woods

By MedRed
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...

Good movie

By swaymbsc
Very entertaining. This movie was exactly what I thought it would be, nothing more, nothing less. Its fast pace kept me interested from beginning to end. Also, I absolutely love everything in 3D IMAX....

Exactly as advertised

By hugh_who
The title says it all, there should be no doubt about what this movie is about. I enjoyed the characters including the troll. The plot is predictable but that's to be expected. Lots of action,...

Seriously Waste of Popcorn

By MonkeyWatcher
Hansel and Gretel stalls somewhere in the land between comic farce and lack luster story telling. Character development of the two "heroes" is so spotty that your legs will be tired from all of...

Campy, action packed adventure. It is being criticized for not being "factual". Rriiigghhttt...enjoy it for the fun adventure that it is supposed to be. It is not for little children; some nudity...

Not exactly Jason Bourne!!!

By LA Dave
Downs: Bad acting from start to finish and predictable. Jeremy Renner did not live up to his "Legacy" from the "Bourne" performance! Up's: Spoecial effects were good and the ladies were delicious!...
