Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters (3D)

Classic Tale New Twist


Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters (3D)
A modern version of the Hansel and Gretel fairy tale, with little relevance to the original. After getting a taste for blood as children, Hansel and Gretel have become the ultimate vigilantes, hell bent on retribution. Now, unbeknownst to them, Hansel and Gretel have become the hunted, and must face an evil far greater than witches... their past. The critics were not impressed, although initial box office receipts were good. This film is releasing in both 2D and 3D, this is the 3D version.

Cape Times
Stephen Farber quote iconJuvenile fairy tale farce is just too fanciful to be truly revolting.

Justin Hess quote iconThe classic fairytale gets an assk-kicking action hero makeover, but has all the nutritional value of a Happy Meal.

Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconWhat 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.

Tomatometer quote iconAlternately bloody and silly, Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters fails as both a fantasy adventure and as a parody of same.
