Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters

I expected great things from this flick with the named cast, but it looked like it tried to borrow (badly) from the original Evil Dead but with a script laced with modern vernacular and casual swearing, ninja witches, overly blasé witch hunters who couldn’t hit a barn door at times, blood packs, gore, cliches and tight leather. The premise had so much to give yet so little was delivered that I gave up after 15 minutes.

After getting a taste for blood as children, Hansel and Gretel 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.
