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.
I got almost nothing out of this watch as the story is so shallow.
The music was so generic! There is one Celtic song and it was the best part of the score.
Also I compared Stewart's performance here to Twilight and her range of expressions seems to have narrowed and I'm not sure why. She'll always be subtle as an actress because she doesn't know how to smise (like Tyra Banks teaches)!
I'm also pretty sick of people telling me how rad Charlize Theron is here when her acting was totally un-nuanced in this part. You can love an actress and realize for whatever reason they weren't making it work. And her corny ringing of a cat's neck was…
Captivating in a shadowed palette of stunning effects. There's no competition. In a superior retelling of Snow White, she's turned warrior and paired with the Huntsman to vanquish the queen. Theron evokes pure evil while Stewart falters.
What people don’t seem to realize about film is that it’s a very young craft. It’s barely teetering on 100 years, and already we have been able to accomplish so much. Such as telling every story there is to tell. Time and time again. This is something we have to get used to. The thing about stories is that they can be interpreted in different ways. But there is no way to tell a story (or retell it) without pissing somebody off. I bring this up because a very large case in point is Snow White And The Huntsman.
Upon my viewing of the film, I noticed many significant changes from the original story. By original story, I don’t mean…
Plot holes abound, basic characters just barely developed enough to make the movie watchable.
Loved the dwarfs, they looked so real! I loved their costumes, hair and makeup. I wish they had been used better in the story.
BOTTOM LINE: No reason to keep Snow White alive.
Amigos míos, nos encontramos con una de las películas que reúnen a los actores que mejor actúan del mundo cinematográfico. En ella se ve como Kristen Stewart va más allá de su interpretación cautivándonos con su escena de 'muerta'. Y qué decir de Charlize Theron que en vez de ser la mejor villana de la película solo susurra mientras envejece. Pelicumierdón.
what can I say...Kristen actually showed two, that's TWO different facial expressions in this film! And for all that, this movie left me feeling.. meh. I feel the writers got bored and forgot to finish the movie.
I loved Charlize and if she weren't in this, I probably wouldn't have spent the cash to see it in the theater even if it did have Thor in it.
O filme é legal, um pouco superficial, algumas coisas não tem sentido e deixa a desejar, é legal mas não espere mais do que isso.
Such a disappointment! While I'm a Charlize Theron fan, I thought the acting was poor - and it was badly written. Effects were terrific though.
I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
