Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters

Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters Official Site | IMDb

The classic tale retooled and told in a bounty hunter / mercenary style.

It worked perfectly! I found it to be a really fun film, more than I probably should; but, it was just that: fun!

Not shying away from an R rating also helped, a lot. They could have gone even darker with the story, but, oh well, not doing so didn't detract from anything.

I don't think the choice of Famke Janssen was a good call; or, she could have "vamped" it up a bit more (think  Theron in Snow White and the Huntsman).

3.5 outta 4 whatevers
