Everything about Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters should have been a failure – a January release, over-stylized hyper-violence, making a fairy tale more “adult” – but oddly enough, it turned out to be a lot of fun to watch.
The movie isn’t without its flaws – which explains its average review scores – and it barely managed to clear its production budget domestically. But if it weren’t for the saving grace of the foreign box office, there most likely wouldn’t be a sequel in the works.
