Oh, noes, Jeremy Renner. We’d pinned so much of our hopes on you as the next great action hero, but I hate to think that his role as the sidekick in Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol will be the best thing to come out of his venture into action-movie heroism. He was good in the otherwise lackluster The Bourne Legacy, but he appears to be just as much the problem with Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters as the tone, the direction, and the story.
Admittedly, it’s an international trailer, and perhaps Hollywood is trying to dumb down this trailer edit under the false belief that International audiences aren’t very bright and need to be talked to REALLY LOUDLY.
But: Wow. It looks like a lot of fun, but in all the wrong ways.
