I loved this movie so much i don't care if critics hated it. This movie was so much fun i mean it was fast paced it was funny and it had tons of action!. I guess back in the day when Hansel and Gretel were kids they didn't have therapy because they are very mad about their childhood. I think jeremy renner and gemma arterton were excellent in this movie i mean they won't win any awards but for what it was they were good. I really limed the music and i did not know hans zimmer was a music supervisor on this movie usually amything he does is good. This is how abraham lincoln vampire hunter should have been. I know this is kind of random and not that big of a deal but i thought Gretels crossbow was awesome and in the movie she does some really cool things with it. There is little things in this movie that refer back to the original fairy tale but they put a mature twist on it like for example hansel has diabetes from eating to much candy and little things like that really help. 8.0/10

This movie is defimitely a must see. Wouldn't recommend brining kids; the killing/fighting scenes are quiet graphic...blood and guts galore.

We saw it at an IMAX 3d theater in Wilmington DE. It was very good, a lot of action and gore but not over the top from our perspective. It is definitely worth seeing.

If you like cheesy action filled blood-fests, this is a movie for you. The 3D was great and the gore was spectacular. OK, not Ninja Assassin spectacular, but quite good nonetheless. And in 3D! It think it was way overpriced, however, so go see it at an early matinee time.
The acting was fine and the story line was pretty nonsensical, but it was a lot of good clean, er bloody, fun. I think Jeremy and Gemma work quite well together. In this movie, they're not romantically involved, which is comforting inasmuch as they play brother and sister! :D Hansel does have a love interest, although that part isn't a terribly important part of the movie. She does manage to get naked, however -- albeit briefly.
So if you need an hour and a half of mindless entertainment based on a grim (Grimm?) version of Hansel and Gretel, by all means go see this film. It's rated R, primarily for violence I suppose, so I wouldn't plan on taking young children.

Saw this movie in IMAX 3D and I really enjoyed it. Good effects, some humor and lots of action. Realizing beforehand that this wasn't ever going to be an Oscar nominated movie, I wasn't expecting all that much. It did provide a mindless, fun filled afternoon that was very appreciated by both me and my 17 year old son. Go see it!
