Entertainingly bad and cheesy
26 February 2015 | by rprince-832-6294See all my reviews

-Hansel Vs. Gretel (2015) movie review:

-Hansel Vs. Gretel is exactly how it sounds, down to the sci-fi original cheese. In a modern update, Hansel, who hunt witches, to track down and stop his sister Gretel after she is controlled by a witch. That is all.

-Take Frankenstein Vs. The Mummy and make it more enjoyable, dumber, and better handled with the modern update.

-So the story is pretty simple and does not try to make too much sense. At all. I feel like I already did this review about two classic storybook characters going at it for the last few minutes of the film. Goodness.

-The pace is pretty slow in the middle. Because not much happens.

-The acting is bad, but entertaining.

-The characters are cheesy, one-dimensional, and inconsistently entertaining!

-The music is not fitting and not terrible, but forgettable.

-The effects and everything that happens for them to occur are laughable.

-I'm going to just get to the point. The film, unlike Frankenstein Vs. The Mummy, does not take itself seriously and was pretty entertaining. The ending dragged on and did not make sense, but the acting, effects, and everything plot related was fun in a cult-classic cheesy kinda way. So without any more hating, I am very happy to say that after watching tons of lame films, I have finally found the first one if the year, because Hansel Vs. Gretel is…. (pause for dramatic effect)…. So bad, it's good!

-I should point out it does have some violence and a few F-words, but not a lot.
