    If your film is beautiful to look at, but bores the viewer to sleep, then there was nothing here to see in the first place. 4/10

    Beautiful and horrible at the same time. Thinl of the cell. You alrrady know the story and its grim but this adds to it.

    Cinematography wise. This movie is gorgeous. But there's still plenty of issues with that. Most shots use natural lighting which makes it impossible to see anything in the darker scenes. This movie is essentially 80 minutes of nature shots that look like they were filmed on an iPhone. This movie is an extended iPhone commercial. The acting is flat and emotionless. The dialogue is so forced and dumb sounding it comes off as almost hilarious at times. There's no emotion, no charm, no expression... this movie's acting and dialogue are absolutely awful. The music is so off tone. They could've opted for creepy violins and ambient noise like THE VVITCH (2015). Even if that movie was ALSO a misfire just like this one. But instead they chose to go with random noises at random points in the score, and an unfitting electronica sounding score throughout the latter half of the film. I can tell the entire Hansel and Gretel story in 4 minutes. This movie is extends a one paragraph story over 80 drab minutes. Who is this movie for? It's not entertaining, interesting or even remotely creepy. It has no reason to exist. I got so bored before we even got to the final act. Just. Do yourself a favour and skip this movie entirely. Just use one of the 100+ iPhone quality nature shots as your laptop background or something...

    It is beautiful and thoughtful. Is it perfect? No. Is it worth the 90 minutes? Yes.

    Very pretty to look at - delicious eye-candy really with the forest and interiors quite well presented. The story was good and the movie as a whole quite entertaining. There is a feminist vibe going on but its tolerable. All told a fun ride.

    I liked the dark, dreamy, witchy movie with trippy visuals. A girl finds she has the powers of a witch with a mentor who eats kids. The little brother is helpless in this movie, but the threat of him getting eaten is there. They were eating a great spread that was made possible via the previous children. It has a dark and creepy vibe with great visuals throughout. The acting was done well as well. My 8 and 9 year old watched it, and we all enjoyed it.

    Gretel and Hansel: 4/10 Pros: Amazing imagery Cool concept Awesome acting from Alice Krige Cons: Felt way too long Didn't have a coherent vision Tonal conflictions ruin several moments Samuel Leaky as Hansel Nothing actually happens Overused dream sequences

    I enjoyed the movie and cast very much. Would love to see a sequel continuing the story where it left off. Lots of potential!
