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.

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 was excited to see this movie for many reasons, and it didn't disappoint. It was funny, action packed, and I like the fact that they went for an R rating instead of trying to make a "friendlier" PG-13 version. This is a must see!

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 Xena or Hercules type fantasy action this movie should keep you entertained. A solid performance by Famke Janssen as the lead bad witch. The directing was well paced. Kept the story moving.
