Great except for the silly anachronisms....
Good acting, story, effects, and very good 3D. Only annoying thing was the use of 20th century slang in a 19th century story taking place, for the most part, in the area of Augsburg, Germany. Other anachronisms, such as an apparent use of insulin injections (seriously!) had nothing much to do with the story until the---well, you'll see why they contrived that whole thing without really needing to...
You'll see some Van Helsing-influenced gadgetry and, as you would expect, some Brothers Grimm imagery, but it's great. Well worth the money and the 85 minutes watching. Beware that the shortness of the film means that you're going to suffer twenty minutes worth of previews, etc., before the movie starts...
