It is bombastically ridiculous, over the top, and innocuous enough to be vaguely entertaining, and possibly various designers' inspiration to hire them for their next ad campaign. That's all.

A streamlined and steam-cleaned studio product that can't decide if it's an adult horror or a children's fantasy.

Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters winds up being one of those movies that sounds better in a description of its better component parts than it plays onscreen.

Which doesn't mean it's bad... well, yes it is. It is really bad. But there are odd bits of redemption lingering in its depths that are truly baffling to behold.

If you went into this movie expecting anything more than the title suggests, you deserve to be disappointed.

Hansel & Gretel, a bizarrely updated twist on the fairy tale, is the perfect example of a movie that is both intentionally and unintentionally funny at the same time.

Viewing the film in IMAX 3D was less an experience than an endurance test.

A cinematic Rube Goldberg machine, stocked with attention-grabbing but incongruous moving parts, working in concert to achieve nothing.

a disposable fairy tale ride

The best "Evil Dead" sequel we never got.

Very lean and speedy... Its primary goal seems to be to entertain as quickly as possible and get the audience back out the door before the story gets old.

Another similarity it shares with Van Helsing is that it's not very good.

a loud, obnoxious mess

I laughed quite often, at its brazen and unapologetic stupidity more than its intentional stabs at comedy.

[Director Tommy] Wirkola attempts to balance his over-the-top gore with gags, but the jokes often fall flat. The characters aren't very compelling either, and that's a problem in a film built around action.

There may be some wit afoot, particularly with director-writer Tommy Wirkola's good-for-a-chuckle rethinking of the missing child notices adorning milk bottles, but the film is still just a one-note, hired guns story-with groupies.
