      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

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

      Larushka Ivan-Zadeh metro.co.uk Treat yourself: buy the pick'n'mix but skip the film. Rated: 2/5 Sep 5, 2017 Full Review Tara Brady Irish Times There's no reason in the world for Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters not to be good, clean, trashy fun. But it isn't. Rated: 2/5 Mar 1, 2013 Full Review Derek Malcolm London Evening Standard It's an appalling, insulting and cynical mess from start to finish. Rated: 1/5 Mar 1, 2013 Full Review Emiliano Basile EscribiendoCine ... A story that -- fortunately -- lasts less than an hour and a half. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 6/10 Jan 22, 2024 Full Review Keith Garlington Keith & the Movies Is it the worst movie you’ll see? Hardly. Does it have a few moments that work? Well, yes. But are there a number of better ways you could spend your time? Most definitely. Rated: 2/5 Dec 26, 2022 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review Be it the fault of the filmmakers or the concept itself, something about leather-clad badasses who trek through antiquated Eastern-European countries to fight monsters with an elaborate, modernish arsenal just never seems to work.

      Audience Member A steampunk violent version of the Grimm fairytale starring Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton The opening stays close to the old story of two siblings being captured by a witch then they escape having to burn her in the oven From then on Hansel & Gretel become witch exterminators and there's a plot where dozens of children are kidnapped from which they have to stop They also get help from a giant troll of all things I didn't hate this but it is very highly forgettable Clearly made for 3D especially when it comes to the gory kills The costumes are cool don't get me wrong and you got some cool supporting players like Famke Jansen, Peter Stormare, and Thomas Mann This is pure fantasy, over-the-top goofy, don't-take-me-seriously in action and dialogue both This just goes by so quick it leaves little of an impression The filmmakers I think attempted to do another 'Van Helsing' but came up short in a few spots Yet it's still technically well made and offers serviceable, albeit mindlessly serviceable, entertainment Disposable but not the worst thing out there Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/26/24 Full Review Jelisije J A decent little action packed take on Hansel and Gretel being Witch Hunters. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/17/24 Full Review dave e I loved this film! It was fun, beautifully shot, and the makeup was amazing. Now, we're not talking oscar here, but just a great witchy film with great actors. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/15/24 Full Review Matthew K Gemma A. That's all. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/06/24 Full Review Hilário critics always hating my favorite movies. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/07/23 Full Review Diana M Siblings Hansel & Gretel are just children when their father takes them out into the woods at night and leaves them there all alone. The children come upon a house in the woods... a Gingerbread house! As they enter the house, a witch captures them and chains them, forcing Hansel to eat candy. But Hansel and Gretel manages to get free and they throw the witch into her own oven, burning her alive Now many years later, having killed hundreds of witches, Hansel and Gretel have become famous mercenary witch hunters for hire. "Me and my sister... we have a past. We almost died at the hands of a witch. But that past made us stronger. We'd gotten a taste of blood. Witch blood. And we haven't stopped since." - Hansel So when the children in the town of Augsburg start to disappear, stolen away by witches, the Mayor hires Hansel and Gretel to find them and bring them back. But these are no typical witch kidnappings. This is a gathering. The gathering of all the witches all over the world to the Blood Moon, and to the most powerful grand dark witch herself, Muriel. Now Hansel & Gretel have only three days before the Blood Moon to save the children from a horrific death. Wow! I have never seen witches like this. This is not the children's fairy tale I grew up with. This is some serious child eating, butt kicking, broom riding, killer witches. The fights between the hunters and the witches are so Awesome! I really like this edgy Hansel & Gretel revenge flick. Just a totally Bloody entertaining movie. Cast - Jeremy Renner, Gemma Arterton, Famke Janssen, Peter Stormare Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 10/27/23 Full Review Read all reviews
