The witches are bad ass and fly on large tree branches, which I thought was pretty cool, but Gemma Arterton as Gretel was a little hard for me to believe. She is just too pretty compared to the rest of the cast and looked much younger than Jeremy’s Hansel, but I was able to overlook that once the action started. There were many predictable one liners, but they were still funny as hell and lots of visual jokes as well, such as old fashion milk bottles that have hand drawn missing children posters tied to them.
The theater where we saw it only had it in 3-D. I am not impressed with 3-D and don’t think it is worth the extra money, but if you enjoy that experience there are some pretty cool effects. Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters is a rocking action movie as long as you don’t take it to serious and is worth a matinee price for sure.
