The latest fairy tale movie-on-the-block is Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters; a gory, mindless re-telling and continuation of the Grimm brothers’ original folk tale. Strangely, it can never quite work out if it’s written for adults or children, incorporating a dull and simplistic script with a random splattering of heavy cursing and limbs being ripped apart from bodies. It’s an odd one, Hansel and Gretel may be at its best during the action but it’s still all thoughtless and long-winded.
We dread to think what Rapunzel and Cinderella might be up to.
Finally a fairytale that brings the blood back.
She’ll play the girl one, probably.
