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…
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…
Audio/Visually this is a great movie. Especially the scenes in the forest look amazing. The designs, creatures, the mirror, the dwarves. Everthing in terms of designs and the sound and the music is great. Theron's acting is pretty good. She makes the best of the flawed script. Also it's quite rewatchable. But that doesn't make it a good movie. There is little to none chemistry between Stewart and Hemsworth so there scenes are not that believeable. Also Stewart isn't doing that great of a job and repeats a lot of her Bella character. She can do better than this. Other than that Snow White and the Huntsman is just boring in it's telling. It takes so long for something to…
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
With a new sequel literally around the corner, featuring Jessica Chastain in a rather wonderful outfit, it feels the right time to check out Snow White and the Huntsman, with my review based on the extended cut chucked onto this Bluray. The sound mix is awful, by the way.
Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters did the whole “grim and gritty” reimagining of a kids fairytale too, but that film appreciated the inherent goofiness of such an idea and just had some fun with it. I wish I could say the same for Snow White and the Huntsman but it’s really just a bit like a sort of rubbish version of the Lord of The Rings and Hobbit trilogies.
Now it’d be…
Whose idea was to let Kristen Stewart play snow white......
O filme vale muito a pena pela fotografia e, principalmente, pela prestação de Charlize Theron que está irrepreensível enquanto Rainha Má. A sua crueldade assusta deveras, o que é normal tendo em conta que a actriz foi buscar inspiração a Jack Nicholson em The Shining.
Wow I want Charlize Theron to suck me dry
I thoroughly enjoyed this movie, although I felt like the queen and the huntsman's acting carried it. The ending was phenomenal as well.
Charlize is a goddess, even (or especially) when evil
Be warned, this is not your familiar cute and cuddly, sugar coated Disney version of the well-known fairy tale, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937). If you have ever read an original classic fairy tale, you know they are not so heartwarming and loveable. Fairy tales were intended as serious morality fables meant to warn and instruct us, especially children, about the darker side of human nature. This dire and more sinister action adventure version of Snow White reminds us of the power that the original Brothers Grimm tales still have over us.
