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!

Exactly as advertised

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, decent special effects and witches are dispatched with extreme prejudice. It was an entertaining movie and I'm looking forward to the sequel.

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 and lots of cursing.

Seriously Waste of Popcorn

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 the leaps of faith you have to make. The witches are all about their face makeup... they must have all worked in a plaster of paris plant prior to coming on set for their camera calls. The overall story line had a great deal of potential, but this execution kills more than witches - it kills any audience appeal it might have had. Don’t waste your time or money. Even the theatre's popcorn can't save your evening.

Loved it

The special effects and 3D very well done. The good witches were adorable, the bad witches horrible. If you're looking for a realistic fairy tale, you're in the wrong universe. This flic requires suspending a lot of disbelief, but once you do, it's enormously enjoyable. The end leaves ample room for sequels which I hope are forthcoming in the not too distant future.
