Film Review - Hansel & Gretel Witch Hunters

This is a very silly film, there's nothing wrong with that. It's also quite fun. The story continues from the end of the fairy tale with Hansel & Gretel pushing the witch into the oven. They then go on to a life of hunting witches.

As I say this is a silly film. The witches are spell throwing ninjas making for some over the top fights. The bad guy's plan is suitably diabolical and leads to a big showdown.

I liked it. It's not a classic in the rough by any means, but it's a entertaining popcorn movie.

Get ready for a twisted take on the classic tale as Hansel (Jeremy Renner) and Gretel (Gemma Arterton) have turned pro, coping with the trauma of their childhood captivity by slaying witches for hire. But when the seemingly unstoppable bounty hunters meet their match in an enemy so evil, it'll take all their training, weapons and courage to survive.

Buy Hansel & Gretel Witch Hunters from Amazon (it's fun)


  1. Just watched this last week. Totally crazy silly flick but I am glad I didn't pay to see it in the theater

    1. Agreed, I rented it, silly but reasonably entertaining.
