This movie is jam pack interest. I love that they tackle those responsible for evil sorcery. Acknowledging the difference between white magic: healing and protection and black magic: injury,confusion and death. I love the witch hunters. <3

Well, this movie is awful! However, it actually moves very quickly. I'd watch it again for Jeremy Renner's very funny performance. He's got the best lines in the movie. But he and Gemma Arterton (who was great in the BBC's adaptation of _Tess of the D'Urbervilles_) clearly needed paychecks.

Entertaining fantasy effects,.. but not much else. An O.K. evening, if expectations are low, and the popcorn is good.

not good at all, the story will get your attention, then let you down. Low budget film.

A modern retelling of a Grimm fairy tale. If you like loud noises and leather. Plus modern American English speaking (which makes no sense to me when everyone else has either an accented English accent) then this is the movie for you. I give up with these types of movies. Making Hansel a diabetic was the only thing that was interesting.
