This movie is more stupid then Abraham Lincoln vampire hunter. This movie is just lame, I mean some of the deaths in the movie are good but the rest of the movie is just crap.

Things I learned from this film: Witches are awesome at parkour, Hansel and Gretel have really foul mouths and trolls make excellent friends (and even have names!). This is a fun diversion - and it definitely earns the R rating - if you want an action film with a fantasy twist, you'll have a good night.

a enjoyable fun movie. about hunting witches. there could of been some better dialogue though between the characters as you expected them to say much more than they actually did. the communication between them all just wasn't right or natural. but over all it was good entertainment.

No longer a children's tale is this gory splash !

Gone are the days where children used to be in touch with H and G who fight witches and become heroes of the day. Now this era poses novelty. They are grown up and they use gigantic guns to take down the deadly witches. Frank Wirkola (TV series director) has taken up the Hansel and Gretel in a different way. He uses the premise of the original story for first few minutes and helps them grow big and take down the deadly witches one by one. Hansel (Jeremy Renner) and Gretel (Gemma Arterton) are siblings in the plot, (does sounds awkward). They use the map, take down the deadly witches. But the stronger witch defeats them and decides to trap 12 children to work on a curse that might stop them from trouble. Now both Renner and Arterton are lost. One finds the white lady he saves at first a...

A Fun Action Flick

I give up. For years now I’ve tried to really think about each and every movie I see and really analyze what is good and/or bad about them, but half the time my conclusions seem to be different from everyone else’s. I though The Master was the best flick of 2012; It wasn’t nominated for best picture, I Thought Argo was overrated; It won best picture and I though The Last Stand was the best action movie I’d seen in a while; it flopped. Now here I am giving Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, a movie that currently has 15% on Rotten Tomatoes, a good review; all attempts to conform have pretty much been dropped.

I just don’t understand what everyone hates about this movie. I think the action scenes were fun, I thought the dark-age steam punk world they created was unique and fun and w...

Blood, guts, and brains!

This movie is an interesting take on the Hansel and Gretel fairy tale with the two adorable little kids whose father brought them to the dark forest and left them. They wander into the forest until they come upon a cottage made of candy in the woods. There's an evil witch there who tries to fatten up Hansel and makes Gretel a slave but they get the better of her and push the witch into an oven, establishing that fire is the greatest weakness of witches. Hansel (Jeremy Renner) and Gretel (Gemma Arterton) grow up to become witch hunters with an arsenal of exotic weapons. (pretty nifty weapons given that it's the middle ages)

Eventually they are hired by the mayor of the town who recruits them to investigate recent high witch activities in the area whereupon they save a young woman from b...

I will avoid seeing this out of protest for stupid premises overtaking the TV commercials. This looks really stupid Not looking forward to any movies coming out soon. 2013 movies I look forward to; World War Z; Ender's Game, Man of Steel, and the Croods

True, 2012 closed out really strong with Django, Silver Linings, Zero Dark Thirty and all and nothing has really came out yet in 2013 opening my eyes but actually, I just watched Gangster Squad last night and it was a surprise, i thought the Gosling/Gangster Flick combo was going to be a flop but he was great it reminds me of Public Enemies, depending on personal preferences which i don't know it could be a really good movie i thought it was. However it has only been 3 4 weeks into the year i think 2013 will bring some promising films i have heard of a few i know Dicaprio will be doing a Great Gatsby which should be great

It's been a rough start for movies in 2013. Really the only one I had interest in was Gangster Squad, but after the reviews and audience reaction came in, I decided it would be better as a rental. That's kind of how I feel about Hansel & Gretel - something that looks like it will be fun to watch, just not necessarily in theaters.

Its not a very high priority for me to watch this movie except Jeremy Renner along with Tom Hardy is becoming one of my favorite Actors he will never take over Leo Dicaprio as the best but im loving all his movies, it isnt my type of genre but i will probably just check this movie out just because of Renner and see how he does

This is the kind of movie that I think you never admit you really want to watch, but secretly, you're looking forward to seeing where they go with such a ludicrous premise.

Considering how random the box office has been this year, I have no idea what's going to happen this weekend, but I will totally stream this once it's available.
