    What to say about this lame-brained, limp dick attempt to update a classic Brothers Grimm tale into an f-bomb throwing vomit-inducing 3D franchise? I say, screw the damn thing and run the other way. show more

    This genre stew throws in so many ingredients - including sundry body parts that are cut off and go flying, and heads that explode - that the result is a tasteless mash-up that's hard to stomach. show more

    Even if he's slumming, Renner gets it best: his dry delivery fully acknowledges the movie's ridiculousness. If you're planning on entering this fractured fairy tale, you'll want to follow his lead. show more

    Stephen Farber The Hollywood Reporter

    The film is smart enough not to wear out its welcome. But that's the only sign of true intelligence in this juvenile caper. show more

    Wirkola tears through Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters with such giddy abandon, it ends up being splattery fanboy fun. Preposterous, clearly, but fun. show more

    A rarely funny spoof that's heavy on bone-crushing and blood-gushing. show more

    Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters is more Gatling guns and grenades than The Brothers Grimm. show more

    Liam Lacey The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    The film can't be accused of taking itself seriously. Shot in 3-D, with lots of choppy action, a rudimentary plot, and plenty of CGI-shape-shifting, it comes in at a brisk, disposable 88 minutes. show more

    Rex Reed New York Observer

    In an age of zombies, werewolves and oversexed vampires, teens won't be shaking in their Uggs over ugly women with bad teeth flying around on brooms, and with its graphic depictions of tortures, mutilations, gang rapes and myriad examples of child abuse, it's no longer a fairy tale suitable for children. show more

    An exceedingly dull and stillborn attempt to update the Brothers Grimm. show more

    So maybe if you\'re a god fearing Christian, you don\'t want to see this movie. I quite enjoyed it though! Don\'t take the critic\'s seriously after the reviews they gave Gravity. This is a perfectly good movie with decent acting and plot progression. And it\'s got Hawkeye in it!

    Extremely entertaining. I hope a follow up to this movie is made. I can\'t understand why the critics rate this so low? This movie is entertaining and fun to watch. You won\'t be disappointed.

    This movie is the worst movie since C.H.U.D. in the 80\'s. There was more graffic violence in the first five minutes... I wanted to leave almost immediately. I took my son because he wanted to see it, but even he did not enjoy it and he is into these sorts of movies. Too much violence just for the sake of violence, way too graffic and not much imagination. I hated it, it was a complete waste of time and money. I give this movie ZERO stars.

    I saw this with my husband. We were in dbox seats with 3D and Imax sound. This is a great movie to see in dbox. I found it entertaining,but it was nothing special. Go to a matinee and save yourself some money or wait until it comes out on dvd or instant video.

    I like this move. This is not for kids to see. There is only one scene that have nudity in it but have alot of blood gore in it.

    I thought this movie was going to be ok, but I must say that the storyline kept a fast pace and didnt stray too much and it was awesome in 3d. this is a must-see for all those who like action films.
