If seeing Gemma Arterton in a corset isn't enough to get you going, then you'd better stray clear from this poor excuse for an action fantasy/comedy movie. Once that MTV logo appeared at the beginning I knew I was in for a world of hurt. I do admit that the IMAX experience increased the entertainment value considerably but this movie fails to even be a spirited spoof or parody of such films. It just doesn't seem to really work. I found the "kid" annoying as hell and I thought that Renner couldn't wait to get to his trailer. Peter Stormare is just as you'd expect him to be (though he overplays it--even for overplay). Famke Janssen is the only actor in the film who seems to be having any fun and taking the correct tone with the piece. Though she was considerably 'terrible' in the movie I thought she did a good job with what she had to work with. However, the thing that bothered me most about this movie was how poorly it was shot and edited. They actually looked like they had some great sets, good special effects and action ideas/props but the director had to screw it all up. Thanks. Where's Robert Rodriguez when you need him?
'Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters' is exactly what you'd expect from it: a mindless-action-blockbuster-popcorn-
movie. And it does have the mindless, cool blockbuster type action scenes. It doesn't have popcorn, but it has
candy and stuff.. wait, what am I saying..? But does it do it good enough that it's gonna entertain us and makes
us wish for more? I don't know about you, but for me hell yeah it did! It includes all you'd wish from it: the before-
mentioned cool action sequences, stunning visuals and... Gemma Arterton? And it does have some good gore
moments aswell (due to the studio making the smart decision of listening to the fans and making it R-Rated). Sit
back and enjoy 'Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters'. Maybe you'll enjoy it as much as I did.
