Movie Review: Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters

Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters is a spin off on the original Hansel & Gretel fairy tale. As expected, the plot deviated from the original one. The movie stars Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton, which are both known for starring in action-filled movies. While they maybe great at what they do, it's the story/plot itself that bored me to death. 

hansel & gretel: witch hunters

In this spin on the fairy tale, Hansel & Gretel are now bounty hunters who track and kill witches all over the world. As the fabled Blood Moon approaches, the siblings encounter a new form of evil that might hold a secret to their past.

This is not your typical fairy tale. It actually is kinda far from that wholesome Hansel & Gretel story. There were a lot of action, suspense, and thriller scenes. There were kissing scenes as well. And did I mention hardcore action already? The genre is action, horror, and fantasy as expected. The visual effects were good. The makeup and costumes used were great as well. But I think it's the plot that was lacking. It was just action all the time. I would've wanted them to develop the story more to make it more engaging and interesting. Well, maybe, it's just me.

RATING: 3 out of 5 STARS

Til then...
