Just so so. Cute idea with a big budget for gore. Entirely predictable plot turns (do not expect more than 2). Leads were charismatic but seemed like time travelers from today. Did the F word even exist in those times?

I for one Absolutely Loved This Movie. I Loved Everything About It. I Loved The Way It Looked In IMAX 3D. I dont have one negative thing to say about this movie. I say just go and you will enjoy it.

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.

Love Jason, great action and unique fights. They made a good action/character movie and then Jennifer showed up and said, “Hey, can I be in the movie although it’s already done?” Then they made up a role for her, as long as she’d wear skin tight skirts in every scene with long slow shots of her booty-walk away every, single, idiotic, stupid time. Good grief – she’s no love interest since Parker is happily married to a hot young babe, so why is JLo in it? Maybe they wanted to take if from 3 ½ stars to 2 stars hoping JLo would jump the box office take. Must be the paparazzi syndrome where we just want to watch stars in motion and don’t care about the story. I want story, then performance by pros. Jen, keep singing, dating the high school back-up singers, and being mom to the twins and leave the acting to the professionals. Can’t recommended it since the script is full of nonsensical plot twists to force Jennifer into the fold. Sorry D.E Westlake (author), McLaughlin & JLo killed Parker.
