Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters

Just a waste of space of a movie. Sorry was that opening line too much? Everything about this movie was just so dumb. The overall concept, the action, the acting. What I never understand is why is the acting bad? I mean I’ve seen both the main stars in other movies before. Did they just forget how to act? Did the director just say “Hey do whatever” and printed it.

The movie follows a pretty basic storyline. Take the original story and add guns and automatic crossbows to it. The two siblings hunt witches with their kung fu and weapons. There’s a lot more to the story, but it’s not worth getting into.

Don’t see the movie is what I’m pretty much trying to convey. I mean I only wrote about it because Netflix put it on. I stopped watching after the first few minutes and then turned it back on again later. This movie was almost set up to be bad. Why would Jeremy Renner do this movie? He just came off of the Avengers and the new Bourne series. Doesn’t need the money.

I give this movie a well-deserved 0.5/5 because I liked the outfits and design of the weapons. I know it’s my site and all, but don’t think I could be that bad and give it a 0 rating.

  1. My husband and I attempted to watch this because it was on Netflix, and we couldn’t make it. It was just so ridiculous. It had so much potential, too. It could have been a really kick ass flick but sadly was far from it.

      I felt the same way. The cast was good, the effects and costumes were as well, so how do you make a movie that bad? I’m not saying it had to be an Oscar script, just make it good. But thanks for the comment and for viewing. Might I suggest the movies, Tears of the Sun. really good Bruce Willis movie. or if you’re looking for something with a deeper story The Iceman was great. I compare it to Good fellas but without all the comedy. Will be writing about both in the near future.
