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.
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.
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…
las estrellas solo se las ganaron los efectos especiales
Looking at my extremely low score for Snow White and the Huntsman, you'd think that I am a absolute hater of all-things fairy tales and believe they're a waste of time, but that's not true. Most of the fairy tales told on screen have been a great teaching tool to children of each generation, with adaptations made by Disney being some of the strongest in the genre, including Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, Sleeping Beauty, Beauty and the Beast, and most recently Frozen. But many studios (including Disney) has the kick in wanting to create darker, gritty adaptations of these classic tales, and so far, there's been mixed results (good, Oz the Great and Powerful, Alice in Wonderland; bad,…
Comfy theater seats plus a bad movie = happy nap time. Needless to say it didn't grab me. Even with Kristen Stewart's Oscar worthy performance (sarcasm). I watched it later, made sure to have some coffee and confirmed my distaste for it.
Instead of beating around the bush, I’ll go ahead and throw this out there, since we’ve all known it from the very beginning: Kristin Stewart is an awful actress. It might as well be mentioned, since it’s also a good springboard into the justified criticism that her performance has received. From the Twilight movies up until now, she’s somehow managed to capture the hearts and minds of tweens all across the world. Perhaps its her wooden, unresponsive glazed-over look of someone who either doesn’t care, or has no clue as to what’s going on; or more likely than not it’s that she’s just in the right series. I gave her more than adequate praise for her work in Adventureland and…
Really dug the darker edge to the film, unfortunately it suffers from trying to be too epic at times. Love Charlize Theron as the evil queen and Chris Hemsworth is great as the Huntsman, heck even Kristen Stewart wasn't even terrible (despite the terrible speech she's suppose to make).
last film i actually went to the movies to see... So funny, simply because it was so bad and actually had a great time watching it.
Película irregular, pero visualmente poderosa y con buen ritmo, aunque tiene algunas partes que me han parecido particularmente penosas:
El caballo que esta sentado ahí y que aparece de la nada, el "discurso motivador" de Blancanieves es de vergüenza ajena, ademas, podemos añadir a esto los "homenajes" (mas bien plagio) a "La Historia sin fin" y "La Princesa Mononoke", ademas el tiempo esta manejado de forma caótica.
En general no esta mal para pasar el rato y gracias a su buena factura pero no me parece buen cine ni de lejos.
Here's a film that looks so incredibly artificial that at some point during the post-production, particularly the color correction process, someone must have made the conscious decision to create a film that looks exactly like a 20 year old's image of the perfect Photoshop image edit. The contrast between black and white has that quaint gradient map+overlay thing going for it. Now this could easily be a bad thing, but the movie just goes with it, constructing shots in a manner that uses this dumb color scheme to it's advantage to the point where if you let it, it'll totally suck you in over the two hours it takes to tell this gritty-as-balls version of Snow White. The amount of…
Mirror mirror on the wall is this going to be better then mirror mirror. This movie is a lot better then mirror mirror but was this film amazing well I can say yes.this movie was okay but this movie was like lord of the rings and Narnia.
