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.
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.
A dark re-telling of a classic fairy tale, it was an enjoyable watch. Although, Kristen Stewart's constantly open mouth annoys me.
Charlize Theron gets five stars. The rest of the movie gets about 2 1/2 I would recommend this just for those outstanding scenes with the wicked witch. Awe inspiring!
Pues animada por lo que me prestó "Cenicienta", me puse con esta. Menuda patata frita!. Un cuento de hadas, sin hadas, sin cuento y hasta sin de. Se pasan toda la película con guerras a espadas sin parar, un ejército contra otro, lo malos contras los buenos y otra guerra a espadas medievales videojuegueras, y otra, y otra y otra. La malvada madrastra era la bellísima Charlize Theron, que aquí está impresionante de cara, cuerpo y yo creo que hasta sus ácaros son más guapos que los de los demás. Qué cosa más impresionante!. Y entonces va el espejo que ya no es un espejo sino una especie de figura del ajedrez dorada y le dice a una Charlize Theron…
I already watched this and I didn't find it anything special that's why this second time I fell asleep while watching it.
( B- ) Wasn't expecting to like "SWATH" due to the idea that I'm supposed to believe that boring vampire girl is fairer than Charlize Theron but I enjoyed this movie. A more dramatic take on the old Snow White story but still w/ much magic and gorgeous visuals to keep you happy. Had a more grand feel to it sort of like a fairy tale "Braveheart." Making the 7 dwarves into bad ass warriors instead of little dopes w/ names like, well Dopey & Sneezy was a good improvement but the pacing should've moved a little quicker. Thor was good but would still trade Bella for Biel in the sequel.
Snow White as a Christ-figure, huh?
Honestly, Charlize was the best thing about this terrible, terrible movie. In fact, I now aspire to be as fierce and fabulous as her character in this movie. Suckin' souls, gettin' shanked, going crazy with power... All in a day's work!
I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
Stories about women. I originally started this list just as a reference for myself, but hopefully others will find it…
