Summary: Hansel and Gretel are grown and make a living hunting witches.  And their latest case is a big one, as the witches are capturing children to use them in a new formula that promises to make them immortal.

Thoughts: A fun popcorn movie.  The story was pretty weak and predictable, the humor was yawn-inducing, but this is a film that’s all about the action.  The violence was a bit over-the-top, with blood spurting and splashing and gushing all over, but it was all very cartoony, not horror-film-grisly.  I enjoyed the look and feel of the film, a sort of old German fairy tale look with a modern American attitude.
