My Penny of View: Young Hansel and Gretel were abandoned by their father in forest. They entered a gingerbread house and caught by a witch. Hansel was forced to continue eating candy while Gretel was forced to set up the oven. With great chemistry between Hansel and Gretel, the witch trapped inside the oven and cooked until die. Ever since, Hansel and Gretel became witch hunters due to both of them immune to spells and curses naturally. However, Hansel gotten diabetic due to the candy incident and he needed to inject insulin everyday. They worked for money and one day they arrived at a town called Augsburg and many kids abducted by witches. What is the motive behind the abduction? Will Hansel and Gretel able to save the kids and take down the evil witches?

I like to watch this kind of fairy tale movie with attack of dark forces and some action scenes. But as the result the movie is below my expectations. I guess maybe because of the main actors or probably the action was not exciting enough. It was quite entertaining with black comedy. Another reason why this is a so-so movie is the story line is predictable, no surprise. I guess to have better view on a movie next time, maybe we should not watch the trailer before the movie to lower down our expectations.

Rating : ★★★☆☆
