Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters is a problematic movie. For starters it really can't make up it's mind on what kind of movie it wants to be. Horror, action, comedy, camp. It has it all, but unlike say Army of Darkness the mix here isn't quite right.
The film mixes a historical setting (never quite sure when it is supposed to be taking place) and modern sensibilities. The guns seem bigger for the time for example.
The story though itself is kind of neat. A gathering of witches of various types is cool. Two former victims immune to witch magic has a TON of potential. Even mixing a couple of good witches and troll for good measure is nice. So all the elements are there, but they never quite jell for me. Though I won't lie, I had a lot of fun with this one.
Tally: Watched 25, New 21
