Movies: Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters (2013)


What's it about:-
In a story where witches are feared for harming citizens and kidnapping innocent childrens, a heroic duo emerges from the dark times to vanquish these evils. With a tragic past and the ability to not die because of witch's direct spell they sought to earn money and save people along the way/ 

What are my thoughts on the movie:-
An over-hyped trailer often leads to the usual main stream acton fantasy films that many have come to enjoy and film makers acquire for to earn a living. 

Re-working the story of old fairy tales is starting to bore me and nothing fresh ever comes our of it, a poorly established environment deems the movie forgettable after every 20 mins. Most of the time you were wondering if you are still at the introductory stage in the film with no solid involvement of any character even the protagonist, origins of certain characters are left unexplained and died as well. 

Jeremy Renner gives no love for his character, the emo and somewhat angry Hansel that does not want to mention their dead parents. Gretel (Gemma Arterton) gives her best yet unconvincing role besides her very talented cleavage that deems a great distraction to many.

Plenty of uncut gore that could make some winch but serves nothing more than just mere visual excitement. The characters and the story both were un inspiring and unengaging and it feels like watching a 3 part Justice League series. A pitiful ride that gives cheap thrills in the form of melee fighting and big guns plus a lot of running and chasing around. 

The music score was not that much of an influence either despite the opening and ending themes. 

Standard action, a few troll  (not sure intended or otherwise) scenes and it will rake some serious box office before deemed unworthy.

Rating:- 1.5/5 (Gemma's distracting in your face (probably) built for 3D cleavages adds a 0.5) XD
" Gretel: This is Hansel & Gretel, and this is WItch Hunt! (follows with lots of punishment by the witches punching kicking and slashing about. Kinda like Jackass the movie. An action movie that might be best to watch at home. "
