This drama documents the events surrounding the downfall of President Pinochet, dictator of Chile from 1973 to 1988. As a drama, it fails, but the events the filmmakers depict are so powerful that the images create a story all of their own. Truths are encompassed by themes of stolen civil liberties and, abomination by abomination, this tragic era of Chile’s history is faithfully drawn.

Despite a big budget, a star cast, an A-list director and an established writer, this thriller is more like a so-so B movie than a vehicle to launch Jason Statham’s solo career. An action-centric trailer might initially pull audiences in but, with nothing more to offer than a gun-crazed killer, interest will wane, and this crime flick will be on its way to the DVD graveyard.

We all know the classic story of the brother and sister named "Hansel and Gretel" and how their evil stepmother tries to be rid of them by leaving them in the forest alone only to find themselves in the hands of a witch that plans to eat them by fatting them up, but the 2013 film titled, "Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters" follows a little of the same plot, but with a whole new twist.
