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…
Derivative. Nice to see Thor kicking some butt again, tho.
Beautiful to watch for the visuals, but the characters were paper thin and the plot too compex to make any sense.
Good: Visuals are quite stunning, perfectly supporting the dark moody world that the story takes place in.
Bad: Convoluted backstory that is nearly impossible to follow for an adult, much less a kid. Why do we care?
Rating: 5.5 / 10 (Fair)
Oddly happy making and not as offensive as I thought it would be
For a film with this much action and darkness within it, I honestly couldn't find any reason as to why it would be boring. However, that exactly what I got. It's action is actually pretty well done and the performances are decent (Stewart is better in this but still isn't that very good). It's visuals and dark atmosphere really pulls you in close to watch but I couldn't actually care about the characters or the plot. It's script is okay, still remaining loyal to the original story but for now it's a forgettable and slow-paced film. At least it was better than Mirror Mirror.
Don't know how I feel about this one. Some shots were really nice to look at (in parts of the film), but I didn't enjoy the acting by Charlize Theron or Kristen Stewart.
Kristen Stewart has no camera charisma (in my opinion) so watching her becomes frustrating because I'll always picture her as annoying Bella from the Twilight saga lol
l'ho rivisto in onore dell'anniversario dello scandalo ma comunque non me lo ricordavo così sveglio quindi che bello
"Snow Dull and the Dullman"
Actually I don't think that accurately conveys how dull this movie is.
"Dull Dull dull dull Dulldull" is more like it.
As Snow White and the Huntsman unfolded I was pleasantly surprised at how not horrible it was. Sadly though, those feelings waned. I found myself counting down the run time clock well before the end. Between start and finish multiple flaws hindered my enjoyment.
Foremost in my mind is the identity. This was not a kids movie, nor an adult movie. It wanted to be both, but it didn't work. As a result Snow White had an awkward adolescent tone.
The second glaring issue was the amount of Snow White lore they tried to stuff into this package. It almost felt like a collection of scenes or micro-plots. This was exacerbated by the addition of some original content to the…
I am not sure what I should think of this ultimate Crossover flick.
It seems to take place in a world long before the events of The Avengers. We see Midgard in medival times, where magic was still common (probably due to a race from outer space we don't know yet). Thor was sent from Asgard to save our world from the dark powers. Sadly he lost Mjölnir like he will do a few hundred years later. He is able to replace the hammer with an axe, but you see clearly that it is weird for him reacting with such a weapon.
On the other side we have Bella. We see her growing up and realize that she has some…
