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.
A lot better the second time I watched it. Loads of famous cast such as Finnick from The Hunger Games and famous Dwarfs.
On my 12 hour flight, my options were limited to this or Airbud 5 or whatever. And a half a dozen romantic comedies. I should have watched the dog basketball movie instead. I feel like they purposely subject you to crap like this to make your flight even more miserable.
Probably one of the more notable gritty reboots, Snow White and the Huntsman isn't really much to write home about. One of many Snow White stories of the decade (Once Upon a Time, Mirror Mirror), this takes a much darker tone, bordering on gothicism. Kristen Stewart may now be easily associated with darker films like Twilight, because she gets dark roles. The abused Snow White goes through a world of fantasy and war in an attempt to reclaim her throne, and is helped by the huntsman who tried to kill her. Although the story has potential, it lacks spectacle in most areas and follows a generic and predictable set of major story elements that fail to seriously appease.
The film is based on the classic German fairy-tale as written down by the Brothers Grimm and is a reasonably faithful retelling, albeit it with added fantasy, adventure and special effects. After the death of his wife King Magnus (Noah Huntley) of Tabor marries the beautiful Ravenna (Charlize Theron) who he rescues from an invading Dark Army. Ravenna, however, is a powerful witch and leader of the Dark Army and she murders Magnus on their wedding night and subsequently takes control of the kingdom. Most of the royal family escapes apart from the beautiful princess Snow White (Kristen Stewart) who is imprisoned in a tower. Ravenna decimates Tabor and its young women whose youth she drains in order to keep…
It's super easy for me to dig the intentions the movie has, and to a certain extent, Sanders and company deliver on the epic feel promised in its marketing. Unfortunately, the performances (excluding Hemsworth) are just atrocious and the movie has so many holes that it's almost impossible to see the structural formation.
The mirror is lying when it said Kristen Stewart looked fairer than Charlize Theron.
This is the most produced shitty hollywoodmovie ive seen in a long time. There is no reason for this movie to exist other than to capitalize on trends.
I just dont understand why they had to make this, at least with maleficent, the story was kinda interesting, but this was just boring bullshit. The prologue was the only thing remotely interesting. This is a waste of big talented actors. This movie is even beneath Kristen Stewart.
The only reason im giving this 1,5 stars, is out of respect for what hemsworth did in the first 30 minutes.
I guess this is what the kids would call a problematic fave. My kind of shitty summer blockbuster. All about this Joan of Arc shit. Did I love it? No, but was it a decently enjoyable good time? Yeah, for sure.
I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
Movies about/starring women. I originally started this list just as a reference for myself, but hopefully others will find it…
