The Hollywood Reporter’s review of Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters describes the film as “tacky pastiche” that’s missing “a genuine sense of wit,” with an “awfully thin” script. “There isn’t much here to entice anyone with a bit of maturity,” it says – but the sub-heading for the review suggests that the “campy, violent version of Grimm’s fairy tale should entice fanboys.” Isn’t it time that everyone gave fan boyishness a break, already?
