Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters (2013) - Movie Rating - Trailer, Cast, Story - Desimartini.com

Verdict: Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters is a mildly enjoyable fare with good action. The substandard writing and average humor makes this a one time watch at best.

Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters Review - Watchable but nothing to hoot about!Jan 31, 2013NewsWhen I heard that this film is a completely unique twist on Hansel & Gretel, where the siblings have become witch-hunters & started taking them down, I was impressed with the idea. Its new, fun & can be an exciting take on an age old tale. How does it translate on screen?Its got doses of fun but hugely lacks the gore, essential to a witch-hunting film. Hansel & Gretel have a childhood story that leads them to hacking & burning witches. They travel from land to land in search of the evil and do it for a sum. The story revolves around a deadly witch who has a haunting connection to their past. At around 90 minutes, the film is breezy & doesnt drag too much. Jeremy Renner is strictly ok while Gemma Arterton is at her fiesty best.The action is good but nothing extraordinary. I expected the fun I had while watching Zombieland, where a lot more brutality was on display. Some brilliant touches are added, like Hansel having to take an injection for a diabetes like disease which he contracted as a child eating treats, a great way to draw an analogy to present day.The finale is action packed but still doesnt quite match up to the many films in the same genre. The 3D is medicore & the visuals not that grand.All in all, the film doesnt have enough meat in the screenplay department & is avoidable. Best watched on DVD if you must.Inspector VIjay Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters Review - Watchable but nothing to hoot about! Jan 31, 2013
