Oh, the IMAX 3-D was better done than most non-blockbuster type action films.
Edit (7/6/13): I had to knock it up a star after watching the Unrated Cut. Still a very fun movie upon second viewing.
Thing is, I don't EXPECT much when starting to watch a film called HANSEL & GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS; no eloquent writing, no intense plot, and certainly not a whole lot of character development. Nope. I would expect action, CGI (perhaps some cheesy CGI), larger-than-life characters, and a plot that might occasionally make me laugh with what it expects its audience to believe. When I go to Burger King, I don't expect a steak.
And THAT is what I got! Much like 'Van Helsing' (which I also sort of liked, sorry), this film is a lot of craziness, dramatic acting, overblown violence/gore ... and I thoroughly enjoyed the ride. Hansel & Gretel, since successfully burning the witch who was going to eat them as children, have in the years since become professional witch hunters who routinely eradicate villages of their local hags ... for a price. They meet their match, however, when paid to help a village - most of the residents of which hate them for, they feel, drawing witches and death to their village in the first place - and instead come across one powerful grand-witch (Famke Janssen) with plans of her own for the brother/sister pair. Lots of blood, cool weaponry, dismemberment, sarcastic remarks, and both awesome and lame CGI makes for a goulash of insanity that - yeah - I still liked a lot.
The film in NO WAY takes itself seriously; do yourself a favor and approach it the same way. It's popcorn for the mind, and pretends to be nothing more.

|Blu ray 3d or Blu ray copy||
NO.TV's cannot convert movies into a 3D version that matches the depth and quality of a true natively shot 3d version.It'll end up looking more like the horrible post-converted 3d of "Clash Of the Titans"...if you're lucky.
