I LOVED this movie. It has incredibly entertaining, great music, characters, plot, tons of weapons, lots of action, a kick butt heroine, and a new original take on a great story. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
However, this movie is definitely intense, and far too much for most little kids to handle.
Pervasive language, terrifying images, one sex scene involving nudity (easy to predict and skip over though if desired), and graphic violence, including brief scenes of torture are involved.
On the other hand, the good guys, Hansel and Gretel, are very loving and protective of the innocent, especially Hansel, which I really thought was a great touch. And the love for each other was beautifully acted. I loved how the director perfectly combined the action with great relationships that reflected tenderness between siblings, lovers, and hero/victims.
