Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters was about what I expected. Fun. Entertaining. Total Mind-dump. It’s one of those movies you go to when you don’t want to think about anything. It’s pure entertainment nothing more. The plot was shallow and predictable, the characters two-dimensional, the witches slightly comical looking but, it worked for the story.

If you plan on seeing it, leave your inner critic at home. I said this movie was shallow for a reason. Don’t try looking deep into it and picking it apart. Don’t look for it to be realistic either. It wasn’t meant for all that. It was only supposed to be a fun ride.

Like Resident Evil Afterlife and Retribution, Hansel & Gretel has some good 3D moments. It wasn’t artistic like Avatar– more like stuff blowing up in your face. Speaking of which, the fight scenes are extra violent and graphic. But, again, no more or less than what I expected. Hansel & Gretel is a great example of a trailer that did the movie justice.

I am a huge fan of "The Three Stooges". What I like about it is that it is just for entertainment purpose. There is no logic. Once in a while you just want some fantasy action and entertainment, and I hope this does it. I haven't seen the movie, but I plan to see it.

I like your review. Now my curiosity is piqued. I just might see this one but cover my eyes at the gory parts!

Sounds like my kind of movie! I hate going to the movie theater and wondering what the hell they were thinking when they wrote/filmed it. I want a fun movie I can just experience. This sounds like that movie!

Thanks for sharing. 😀

Excellent review. I do like the leads, of course, but I think I'll pass on this, catch it when it's on video…
