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!

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.

this may not have been an academy award winner, but it was action packed easy to watch. had some gore, and wouldn't take younger children to see it, but it was fun.

Campy with a side of eye candy

I'm not sure what to say about this movie, exactly. I didn't dislike it. However, I think it could have done more. The re were some seriously over the top moments and Famke Janssen's character was at the center of a lot of them. I do like the way it ended. I also feel there could have maybe been more witty banter and less cheese.
