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…
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.
True beauty is on the inside, but the eye wants something too. That’s a lesson that Rupert Sanders wants to teach us. Because whatever you’re going to say about “Snow White and the Huntsman”, is visually stunning. The décor and costumes are beautiful and it has great special effects.
Director Rupert Sanders aims at an older audience than the original fairy tale is meant for. This results in a dark and grim movie, with lots of action and a little bit of horror. In “Snow White and the Huntsman” we see how King Magnus loses his heart to Ravenna. As soon as they are married, Ravenna kills him and takes over his kingdom. Beauty is magic and magic is power,…
Aventura legal. Pena a atriz Kristen Stewart não fazer jus ao papel, parece sempre a mesma atriz de "Crepusculo" mesmo olhar, jeito, sei lá, ainda não convenceu.
My gripes with this film started less than five minutes in. If you're gonna make a huge fuckin' deal about how this character is supposed to have jet black hair and snow white skin, THEN DON'T GIVE HER BROWN HAIR, A TAN AND FRECKLES!
Ahem, back to the movie as a whole... Look, it's just plain not that good. I've seen worse sure, and it was pretty, but really I couldn't get into it, and I'll probably never watch the thing again.
I still love Chris Hemsworth (Thor, The Avengers, Cabin in the Woods, Ca$h) so at least it wasn't quite bad enough to ruin him for me. Nah, it wasn't all that bad, my biggest issue with the film…
This is an averageish action/adventure with some cool visuals and a fun villain. For a lead Kristen Stewart sure didn't have too much to do. I know she is not considered a strong actress but who could tell with these hollow roles she gets? I was anticipating the final face off but it was pretty anticlimactic.
I absolutely enjoyed Charlize Theron in this movie.Amazing acting and her character was interesting,especially after that flashback.
While seeing Kristen Steward being kinda badass and fighting is nice too,the plot was totally weird,that romance(?) thingy made me cringe and the brother of the queen was
a) a unnecessary character
c)what the heck is it with that haircut,that´s the most gruesome thing about this movie
While it isn´t a shitty movie,a rewatch will probably never happen for me.
Hollywood loves new ideas or even better, old ideas without back end deals made shiny new again. So in 2012 we have two "Snow White" movies, the light hearted "Mirror Mirror" and the grittier, down and dirty subject of this review.
Ravenna (Theron) is the oh so beautiful wicked witch who has tricked her way to the throne, by dispatching the king and all hope throughout the land. Requiring regular top up's of youthful energy to maintain her looks and youth for all eternity.
All is well, for Ravenna and her incestuous brother Finn (Spruell), although conversely life is not so good for everyone else, as the land dies and the populace starve and darkness falls "across the land".
Solidly entertaining. Nothing novel in terms of plot, really, no super exciting dialogue.
A perfectly decent blockbuster that manages to counteract it's top-noch casting with the presence of Kristen Stewart.
Out of all the fair tales I have seen this year, this got the over-all dark aura in it.
