is the plot of hansel and gretel important or unimportant **Weegy:** The meager plot is strung together by cheesy one–liners that add charm but not substance. [ Although it’s clear early on that the plot is unimportant, it certainly would have given the audience more to think about between action sequences than “when do they start killing witches again?” It appears the majority of the budget was spent on impressive CGI and the star power of the two leads, who understandably phone in their performances.
“Hansel and Gretel” is fun and action–packed with cool guns, pools of blood and a barrage of one–liners but ultimately unsatisfying. Although it’s fitting for an entertaining movie night with friends, if you’re looking for something that requires a brain, hunt elsewhere. ] (More)
