After the Evil Queen marries the King, she performs a violent coup in which the King is murdered and his daughter, Snow White, is taken captive. Almost a decade later, a grown Snow White is still in the clutches of the Queen. In order to obtain immortality, The Evil Queen needs the heart of Snow White. After Snow escapes the castle, the Queen sends the Huntsman to find her in the Dark Forest.
My word, she really does have only one facial expression, doesn’t she?
If fairytales really existed, this film would never have been made.
Yet here we are.....
It should have been called: 'Emo chick without talent and the overacting Evil Queen surrounded by discount CGI'
Makes me want to eat a poisoned apple and die.
Boredom is pretty abundant in this flat and uneven Robin Hood / Kingdom of Heaven / Once Upon a Time / The Lord of the Rings / Narnia amalgamation that takes place in a Universe so f#cked up that Kristen Stewart is supposedly more beautiful than Charlize Theron. These are officially the longest two hours of my life.
Why is it nowadays that every big budget film has to be turned into an action flick? Snow White is a perfectly nice fairy tale, and one can incorporate enough twists into it without turning the film adaptation into a constant battle zone.
Unfortunately, an action movie with fairytale characters is what we get in Snow White and the Huntsman. The film has only two redeeming aspects: its lovely cinematography, and Chris Hemsworth, who continues doing what he does best: being convincing at beating the shit out of people while also looking broodingly handsome.
Everything else is boring beyond belief. Charlize Theron looks beautiful, but her performance is regrettably flat, since all she does is either shout in rage or…
Why is she of such value?
Apparently someone thought Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs by way of Lord of the Rings was a fantastic idea. It's quite easy to figure out, as with most blockbusters, it's existence is influenced by a past hit. The success of Tim Burton's take on Alice in Wonderland, which featured a lot more swords then most people remembered from the original story, is the reason this version of Snow White exists. It's also the reason that I'm sure there's probably a plethora of more fairytale-turned-action-movies on the way. I would check IMDB, but I'm scared of what I'd find out.
The film's story is basically a whole lot of action sequences loosely…
Review In A Nutshell:
A film that is unapologetically self-indulgent in its narrative, with unbalanced pacing and unnecessary and dragging story elements. Thankfully it manages to dazzle in its imagery, with visual effects that rivals its blockbuster peers; and the performances by its cast were better than expected.
unbearably tedious and un-involving
Ho-hum standard fare:
At this point I lost count of how many fantasy medieval-themed movies I have seen, featuring beautiful people in corseted leather using martial acrobatics and physics-defying feats of archery and swordsmanship agains magical evil forces with CGI-fueled destructive forces amidst grey landscapes of Photoshopped doom.
Add this one to that pile.
I watched exactly 30 minutes of this movie (the last 30 minutes, coincidentally) while doing cardio in the treadmill theater at National Fitness Center (see my list for more info) and it is SO BROWN. It's as if FW Murnau tinted all of his celluloid exclusively by smearing doo-doo across it. Peak poop cinema. Stay tuned for more adventures in exercise cinema.
Beautiful dark take on a classic.
Well casted, interesting, and dark themed.
Charlize is the bomb as Queen Ravenna.
Kristen Stewart is a veritable role model for younger girls as Snow White.
Chris Hemsworth is serviceable as the Huntsman.
Will watch every now and again for Charlize Theron.
Pretty costumes and I love Charlize
Among the uneveness there are some great to look at scenes. As per usual the make up people have done a good job. Charlize doesn't appear too often which doesn't help.
Despite an excellent supporting cast it fails to hold attention. Another violent fairy tale.
Not as bad as I expected, and with enough stupidity to keep me entertained. It's nice to see strategy being employed in a big battle, even if the strategy is terrible, and nobody feels like using their shields. Highly derivative of other films, noticeably Lord of the Rings and Gladiator, Snow White is a decent fantasy action to fill the void of a post-lotr world.
The film opens surprisingly strong, but once we get to the dwarfs over halfway through the film, the plot halts to a stop, and the final act feels rushed. Chris Hemsworth is doing Thor again, which isn't really a bad thing, and I also liked Charlize Theron and her scenes. Kristin Steward needs to stay away from franchise films, because she only shines outside of them.
This one's actually getting a sequel. That's nice for a change.
enjoyable adaption of the snow white story. wanted more huntsman and dwarves than snow white, mainly because of who is playing whom, as well as how said characters are written.
oh and don't think i didn't notice your fucking blatant rip off of princess mononoke and the forest spirit. it takes me right out, but to their credit i was able to get back into it.
The Mako Mori test is passed if the movie has a) at least one female character b) who gets her…
Movies about/starring women. I originally started this list just as a reference for myself, but hopefully others will find it…
