Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters was about what I expected. Fun. Entertaining. Total Mind-dump. It's one of those movies you go to when you don't want to think about anything. It's pure entertainment nothing more. The plot was shallow and predictable, the characters two-dimensional, the witches slightly comical looking but, it worked for the story.
If you plan on seeing it, leave your inner critic at home. I said this movie was shallow for a reason. Don't try looking deep into it and picking it apart. Don't look for it to be realistic either. It wasn't meant for all that. It was only supposed to be a fun ride.
Like Resident Evil Afterlife and Retribution, Hansel & Gretel has some good 3D moments. It wasn't artistic like Avatar- more like stuff blowing up in your face. Speaking of which, the fight scenes are extra violent and graphic. But, again, no more or less than what I expected. Hansel & Gretel is a great example of a trailer that did the movie justice.
