I couldn't take this movie seriously after Jeremy Renner saying, perfectly seriously (spoiler alert) "When I was a kid, a witch made me eat so much candy I got sick." HANSEL HAS DIABETES GUYS. A pointless addition handled so poorly I laughed out loud. There were in fact a multitude of lines during this movie that made me laugh out loud when I clearly was supposed to feel tension or...well, honestly by the end I wasn't sure. Anything set in this era that follows a horror/fairytale story is usually an automatic yes for me. Hell, I sat through Van Helsing and enjoyed it - but the moment the two dimensional main characters stepped on screen, sporting incongruous outfits and uttering lines that sound as if they were written for a poor fanfiction, I clocked out faster than they could shoot up a witch's den - which I might add is an achievement. I mean, every five minutes, the screen was exploding with a shower of terrible CGI or corn-syrup sludge. I love Gemma Arterton, and Jeremy Renner - but they were wasted here. Their cheeseball characters didn't fit in the world set up to surround them. The script was "ye olde" one second and then completely ruined the developing atmosphere with an "OMG Hansel, I hate these witch assholes" line the next. I get the steam-punk vibes must have been what they were going for in costuming, but Hansel and Gretel must have stopped by the local budget store for their guns, because man, were they tacky. In short, don't do this to yourselves. It's not worth the frustration.
