Here's Tommy Wirkola's take on a classic fairy tale starring Jeremy Renner, Gemma Alterton, and Famke Janssen. While fun, silly, and a big budgeted B-movie, this film could have used more sugar when it came to the screenwriting department. Pretty much a rental. Just dumb popcorn entertainment and nothing more.


  1. Great review, man! At least you've convinced me to see it, just not in the theatres! lol! I do love Gemma Artsen and Famke Jasen as well. My major reasons for wanting to see it in the first place. lol!

    1. Gemma Arterton looks hot in this film. And Famke Janssen is very good as the villain. Other than that, total rental. lol

    Gemma Arterton might be British rubbish but i`d still love to bugger her senseless.

  3. Yeah, this sounds like something better left off for dvd watching, though its #1 at the box office, which just shows how the kiddies truly do like to watch crap and back it up. Still, the 3D element is enticing...I am a sucker for 3D fun.

    1. The 3D isn't all that, but it's not terrible either. And I'm surprised it did as well as it did. My theater showing was pretty much empty. Hmmm.

  4. I went to see it last night, Fred, and liked it much better than I thought I would. The plethora of 3D helped, I think. It was well worth the ticket price, especially considering the unnecessary 3D versions of CONAN and TEXAS CHAINSAW of recent.
