I Love This Movie

It seems critics nowadays just want serious movies that last hours on end, they don't want action or 3D, they just want to listen to dialogue driven movies that frankly don't go anywhere heart pumping or exciting. It's a real shame when critics can't enjoy watching two of the coolest, freshest actors totally ripping the guts out of evil witches in spectacularly gory style. We need more movies like this, films that don't take themselves seriously and just aim for all out entertainment. Fast paced, sharp and ferociously violent, Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters is hands down the most fun and wildly over the top adventure of 2013, it will be hard to beat. The story is played out fast and loose, just like the 3D and special effects which are insanely brilliant, the action is explosive but the best feature is the acting. Jeremy Renner is very entertaining, his humour is very blunt and deadpan and it's a change from his roles in Avengers, Bourne & Mission Impossible. Gemma Arterton is very cool, she takes a whole lot of punches and she fights back with brute force, and most of the bad-ass one liners come from her, "Let the girl go, or I'm gonna blow you sheriff brains all over these hillbillies". It has to be said though, that Famke Janssen is the best, you can tell she is having a blast playing the evil witch Muriel, whenever she comes on screen you can't help but smile, and there's a sense of unpredictability with her character, who knows what she will do next?! It's repeat viewing material and a heck of a blast and there is never a dull moment, just all out action, fun twists and a whole lot of laughter.

A Guilty Pleasure, but a Good One

Gemma and Jeremy are the coolest cats in town or respective in all the fairylands hunting witches not only in the witching hours. I really enjoyed this movie, that provides us with a ton of fresh ideas, spicing and shaking up the good old Grimm tale, mocking with mindless fun all fairy tales and vampire stories and the like ever written or put into motion pictures.

Hansel & Gretel, a guilty pleasure for sure, but also popcorn cinema in the best sense, of course, no new Inception and no aspirant for an Oscar but fun enough to watch this movie more than just once, and still giggling and laughing in certain scenes and admiring the makeup-art of the witches, the cinematography, and the full action mode.

A movie the Wizard of Oz would be proud of. And last but not least, Gemma is the most beautiful witch hunter ever.

An interesting idea with a good implementation

When they were kids, Hansel and Gretel were abandoned by their father in the nearby forest, ending up defeating the witch from the candy cottage. After that event, thanks to their powers, they become witch hunters, swearing to bring every evil witch to justice, no matter where she was hiding. Thus, they are recruited by a town's mayor to investigate a kidnapping spree which seemed without ending. Armed with courage, weapons and a bit of help from some locals, they begin their quest of eliminating the source of evil which lurked without any hitch.

It's an enjoyable and funny parody of the famous Hansel & Gretel story which seems determined to do anything to entertain. It manages to do so, mostly, due to its humor, intense action, combat and story. It combines sophisticated guns with a world in which people live in cottages and read printed newspapers...what a mix! As a parody, it doesn't pay attention to details, the characters are very simplistic and it's story is linear, but despite its problems, it is a good movie which provides a good dose of adrenaline and entertainment whenever needed.
