OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 36 moviegoers:
This movie certainly didn't bring in much of a crowd but it did receive reviews that are much better than the "poor" and "terrible" critic reviews we found.
TEENS:The one male wasn't impressed but the four females all loved "Hansel and Gretel."
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:Two of the three males loved it and the other one rated it above average, which indicates a movie he enjoyed very much, but didn't quite love. All four of the females loved it.
ADULTS: About a third of the males loved it. Approximately half rated it above average. The remaining reviews came in as only average, which is a bit disappointing, but not bad. It seems the females, across all age groups, really enjoyed "Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters."Half loved it with most of the remaining half indicating they enjoyed it very much. Only a few rated it as low as good/average.
A legendary fairy tale transforms -- taking a dark, twisting turn down a new path into fun, fast-paced action and sly, sinister modern thrills -- in the rollicking action-horror adventure HANSEL & GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS. The story picks up 15 years after siblings Hansel (Jeremy Renner) and Gretel (Gemma Arterton) hatched their escape from a child-snatching witch, who changed their lives forever ... and gave them a taste for blood. Now they have come of age as fierce, formidably skilled bounty hunters 100% dedicated to tracking and terminating witches in every dark forest -- hell-bent on retribution. But as the notorious Blood Moon approaches and a familiar wooded town faces a nightmare for its innocent children, Hansel & Gretel encounter an evil beyond any witch they've ever hunted -- an evil that could hold the secret to their frightening past.
