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.
Hello, my name is Kristen Stewart and I never disappoint, even in a movie in which I am supposedly more beautiful than Charlize Theron. I only ever choose characters that are determined and defined by the help and actions of the men around them. This why I commonly play parts that have several men trying to save and aid me. I am thankful I, in Twilight, learned how to stay really still during scenes in which I am supposed to be dead since I now get any role I want.
Hello, my name is Chris Hemsworth and I played Thor in that good summer blockbuster.
Hello, my name is what's-his-face and I look a bit like James Blunt.
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 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…
The third Snow White of 2012 is the one that arrived with the biggest fanfare and highest expectations. The trailers promised epic action, lush visuals and an evil Queen with a capital E. In truth the film does deliver on all three promises but sadly these three elements alone are not enough to save the film. As with most modern interpretations of familiar fairy tales we see another revisionist take on the source material. So here we get an extra dwarf, the Huntsman is promoted in importance and Snow White gets to go all Joan or Arc in a frankly silly and unconvincing finale.
The film is not without its qualities though. Director, Rupert Sanders, effortlessly translates his eye for…
Visually great to watch. Almost all the actors were pretty good. Charlize was standout. Could watch Chris Hemsworth all day, especially with a Scottish brogue.
But you know, it's Kristen Stewart as the lead. I think she's progressing on the emotion front, but she's only gone from 0 to like 2. She's a blank character and the plot only makes sense if you don't think about it, at all.
Enjoyed it, but probably wouldn't watch it again.
Generic action. Charlise doesn't really shift from one room in her palace and the two leads are borderline awful.
This movie kinda surprised me. It had a dark tone that caught me off guard and kept me interested. Charlize Theron was amazing and her role as the Queen, or Ravenna, actually scared me. Probably because I'm afraid of unstable women in general. Great cast all around.
I liked the turtle.
I was a little bit surprised when I looked through my BluRay collection today and realized I owned a copy of this. Naturally I tried to remember what I liked about it and the only things that came to mind were "That Troll!", "The Dwarves!" and "Charlize Theron was amazing!". Interestingly enough I couldn't remember the plot or anything else. Of course I immediately had to schedule a rewatch.
How I wish this was a movie about the dwarves instead! The group of actors cast is amazing and the effects by which they make them look small look as good as "The Hobbit". Yet at the same time they get to do absolutely nothing noteworthy here. A great cast of…
Painful embarrassment, even Charlize Theron was hard to watch.
Kristen Stewart is so miscast in this. She looks constantly confused, rather than being the inspiring presence of life and beauty the rest of the characters try to act like she is.
The movie is 40 minutes too long, with long runs of boring LOTR-inspired travel scenes or pointless attempts at character building. In the end it's another movie with the single point of failure villain. Too bad they didn't just siege the castle and wait for the evil queen to wither and die, as she was doing most of the movie.
And this thing is getting a sequel, but not something infinitely better made, like say, Dredd? Yuck.
Anyway, the moss-covered tortoise was kinda cool. So there's that I guess.
Mirror , Mirror on the wall who is the scene chewiest of them all?" Charlize Theron.
Honest to God, man, I SWEAR I saw Kristen Stewart smile in this!
