The original stories of these "childrens" stories were more adult oriented than we think here in America. We are very isolated. On a different note, for those that brought their kids to the showing, what part of "R" rating or the hardware in the actors hands didn't you notice? I observed in the credits a large amount of people with Germanic or surrounding countries surnames. Finally, a movie that is fun to watch and has the base it needs! And the acting was on target as well! This is not the "Wicked Witch" from Oz!

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

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.

Wow the 3D is amazing with shrapnel and logs and arrows and such making you duck in your seat! No shortage of gore but I guess the humor balanced it out. I think any age would love this one but especially under 25. Acting, cinematography and graphics were incredible. Really excellent movie.

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!
