Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters Reviews
This film is definitely over the top with ok CGI and about a mile away from its source material but by itself as a movie, there is many things in here to find enjoyable.
Weaknesses: The writing is rough. The plot is severely lacking and the dialogue is cringe worthy at times. They should've realized how cheesy some of the lines were, and chose to deliver them in a more comedic fashion. Take the cheesy and run with it. Famke Janssen (Muriel) gives an unremarkable performance as the villain. While the action sequences are strong, there aren't enough to stand out. Instead, a lot of time is spent trying to develop a story that just falls flat. It would've been better served to not take itself too seriously and go all in on the wacky premise.
Overall: It's not a bad way to spend an hour and a half. The visuals are good, there are wacky moments and some good old fashioned gore. If you're coming here for a story or strong character development, don't. Instead, enjoy some mindless, harmless fun, which this film does a solid job of delivering.
