We saw HANSEL & GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS (2013) at 3D Digital Cinema, SM MOA. The film is inventive, slick, fast-paced and most of all fun. The classic fairy tale gone bad-ass, butt-kickin action tale thanks to the appealing stars Jeremy Renner and Gemma Atherton (familiar actress from Quantum of Solace, Prince of Persia, Clash of the Titans). It is still a flawed film, Jeremy Renner never changed his American accent which was supposed to be a German character and the hi-tech weaponry getting anachronistically introduced in a 19th century tale. Well, what the heck, I thoroughly enjoyed the movie so I'm giving it a 4.5 out 5 Biscuits ratings ! BTW, highly recommended to see this film in 3D, bits and pieces and blood spurts literally fly out the screen ! Funny how the Philippine MTRCB rated this film as PG-13 when in fact there are nudity, head decapitation, extremities pulling, head smashings in it, the US rated this as Restricted FYI.
