If Gemma Arterton has a substantial part, you can bet the movie is worth the price of admission.

Hansel & Gretel was a great movie. Best onscreen siblings ever. Who knew they were that bad***. lol. Loved it. Critics tore the movie apart but if you go on tumblr everyone who saw it on there enjoyed it. They also ship those two like nothing else. & I have to admit …. I am one of those lol

@Verity I saw it too on Saturday and loved every bit of it. Saw it in 3D and that was probably the best 3D movie I have ever seen. I admit I jumped back a few times because it really felt like things were coming at me. Not to mention I ship Hansel and Gretel like nothing else. Is that wrong? lol

I saw parker and it was great!!!

Saw it this weekend in IMAX 3D and it was awesome!! Ridiculous weapons, exploding witches, F-bombs and great action. Hope they make this a franchise, I’ll see every one

looking forward to a sequel too, was disgustingly good!

I saw Hansel and Gretel, I loved it and want to see it again.

I hope that there is part 2 of the movie, ‘Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters because as what I have seen, it’s really nice and I want to see them both again in a fairy tale movie doing action.
