In Theaters: January 25th, 2013
After getting a taste for blood as children, Hansel (Jeremy Renner) and Gretel (Gemma Arterton) have become the ultimate vigilantes, hell-bent on retribution. Now, unbeknownst to them, Hansel and Gretel have become the hunted, and must face an evil far greater than witches... their past.
The movie settles for showers of gore with intermittent moments of spoofiness.

At least it puts forth a sound message: Kids, avoid overdoing it on sweets -- especially candy that doubles as drywall.

Rex Reed, New York Observer - January 30, 2013
Wirkola tears through "Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters" with such giddy abandon, it ends up being splattery fanboy fun. Preposterous, clearly, but fun.
