Snow White and the Huntsman
The Fairytale is Over
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.
Game Of Thrones for bed-wetters.
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…
From the moment Chris Hemsworth's horrendous Gerard Butler impression was heard (ie the very first scene), the tone was set for me here. It was going to be one of *those* blockbusters.
Look this is visually arresting in places, capturing cinematically the spirit of Snow White's world, but it's lacking any kind of charm or whimsy, and the writing stinks. Hemsworth tried but is hampered by that accent, Kristen Stewart has all the charisma of a toilet brush and the usually strong Charlize Theron is ice cold but spends TOO MUCH time randomly SHOUTING IN THE MIDDLE of speeches for no apparent reason than she's 'evil'.
It was, however, the dwarves that made me switch off. I mean... Rupert Sanders you were crazy for having it away with Stewart but the dwarves? What *were* you thinking?
No. Not for me, this one, I'm afraid.
Forgettable adaption is nothing new, not worth watching.
A bit too Lord of the Rings, but not terrible. How does Kristen "I just smelled a fart" Stewart continue to get work?
This movie very much felt like the ‘Game of Thrones’ version of ‘Snow White’. It was bloody, violent and dark but that worked well with the source material and also made this children’s story feel like it was geared more towards adults. There were some great visuals here too and the CGI looked impressive on screen. The highlight of the film though was Charlize Theron's evil queen. She was so great that despite her being the villain I found myself rooting for her just because of how awesome she was. Unfortunately Kristen Stewart in the title role didn’t do much for me and mostly seemed bland and uncharismatic. As a whole this action packed take on a classic was entertaining and fun while still sticking close enough to the original story as to not be disrespectful.
Some cool ideas and a lot of potential are ruined in Snow White and the Huntsman, as they are thrown into a boiling hot magma pool of cliché.
Well, that was pretty fucking tedious.
This darker, very adult version of Snow White, starts out promisingly, with a sweeping fantasy setting and a genuinely chilling, scenery chewing performance by Charlize Theron as the evil queen. Cut 30 minutes into this film, however, and it has already sunk into the doldrums, with a dull snail's pace, and a very drab visual treatment to reflect the queen's evil reign. Sadly, Stewart's Snow White is mostly uncharismatic, and Hemsworth's worth as the leading man never becomes apparent - specially since the script decides that there shall be no actual romance for Snow White in this picture. Boring.
Parem de fazer essas adaptações de contos, por favor. Tão fazendo errado.
It was slightly better than I expected, but that's not really saying much. It was an OK fantasy film that copied many others while not being as good as any of them (LOTR and Willow being 2).
There was absolutely no subtlety in the acting, especially by the villains who yelled so many lines it was silly. A menacing whisper here and there would have gone farther.
The efforts to "layer" the villains where also lame IMO. I'm watching an Anime right now that does a much better job at this.
K-stew was passable, but frankly I didn't see her being "the fairest of them all" or even all that pure, seeing as she was as prone to violence as anyone else.
Anyway... I've seen worse... I didn't hate it, but it just wasn't that good.
