That it is so hilariously awful and staggeringly terrible across so many levels makes it a Hall of Famer.

Treat yourself: buy the pick'n'mix but skip the film.

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

Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters ends with the suggestion that there is more to come. That seems overly optimistic.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
April 12, 2016
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.
June 21, 2013
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.

Imagine the elaborate plan: 'We use the sets left over from Red Riding Hood, add a candy house, throw in some aerial forest shots out of Twilight, keep it cheap. Steampunk it up, and have 'em wear leather, 'specially her. Lotsa cleavage.'

Nothing more than Dario Argento dialed down for fourteen-year-olds.
March 14, 2013
It's an amusingly cheeky notion: the siblings from the Brothers Grimm fairy tale as witch-slaying bounty hunters. A defter hand than Wirkola's might have succeeded ... but the film's anachronisms are clumsy and most of the jokes fall flat.
March 13, 2013
Dangerously ignorant and inaccurate on the subject of diabetes, Hansel and Gretel should be disregarded at all costs, and the filmmakers really ashamed they put something so irresponsible on the big screen.

...feels like a coven of people in offices visited the set, were shown the mocked-up candy house and then decided to gut the whole thing and make it safe for theatrical and television sales to other countries where there's lots of censorship.

Let's not mince words: Hansel and Gretel is not a good movie.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

The gore is a bore and the sweary script just isn't funny.
