Movie Review: Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters

We went to the Reel Cinemas at the Dubai Mall today to watch Hansel & Gretel, Witch Hunters. I found this movie great. I went in not expecting a great plot but a simple one. I went in expecting the lines to be kind of cheesy and they were. I thought it was great for many reasons.

Did they accomplish what they set out to do? Yes Did they do it well? Yes Did it have the best dialogue? No. But was the dialogue saved by the delivery of the lines? Yes. Was the ending great? Yes. Does it call for a sequel? No. But that is a good thing. It set out exactly what it was meant to. There is no need for a sequel. It would be extensively repetitious. The movie is 88 min long. That is great. It doesn’t drag on and its not too short. It accomplishes what it set out to do. No less no more.

The 3D was not really the big burner, but if you like things flying towards you it is OK. But i am sure the normal version will do it as well. I was a bit surprised how often the f word was used and not even censored here.
