Yet another retelling of a classic fairy tale with modern flourishes, this time with Hansel (Jeremy Renner) and Gretel (Gemma Arterton) as sibling bounty hunters who travel the land dispatching witches with style and flair until they discover that the biggest and baddest witch (Famke Janssen) has been setting a trap for them.
Director Tommy Wirkola (who co-wrote the screenplay with Dante Harper) hopes to scare up a bit more box office than the similar approach taken with Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. Now in theaters. (R) Not screened in time for review
