Did you people see the same film I saw?
The storyline feels a little thin and moth-eaten in parts but this sequel is plenty of fun.
The joyful confection is coated in a sparkly gloss, bright enough to gleam from the darkest, most cynical corners.
Tons of fine ideas. nice visuals, superb and fun having and loving actors. This little movie is a hell of a joyride for everyone who likes to be entertained without using too much of his brain capacities ;) I really dunno too many movies in which the kindling and blowing up of witches looked more funnier. I guess this is the funniest of them all. I can only remember Polanski's The Fearless Vampire Killers to be more fun, but well, no witches but only vampires there...One word to describe Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters!? FUN.
Fun movie, lots of excitement, energy, and well cast...
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.
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.
