You probably know the classic tale of the brother and sister who are taken into the woods where they find a witch's house made of candy; What you haven't seen is what happened to them once they escaped.
The new movie "Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters" shows the siblings in their new profession of choice: bounty hunters dedicated to exterminating witches. Since their first incident with a witch, they have become immune to spells and curses that witches throw at them, making their job incredibly easy for them. Also, as a result of their childhood incident, Hansel (Jeremy Renner) is a diabetic and must take insulin shots everyday.
As with any update of a classic tale, opinions have been scattered. Many are praising the new film saying that its adaptation is funny and very creative while also enjoying watching Renner and Gemma Arterton, who plays Gretel, kicking witch butt. Others have claimed it to be over-the-top with blood and gore and some even complained about watching the two (Hansel in particular) killing the witches, who are female.
Many have compared the new movie to the television show Supernatural since it is also about siblings working together to fight monsters that they were introduced to in their childhood.
"Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters" is rated R for language, violence, scary moments, and sexual content.
