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…
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.
Tone , tone , tone ! Several minutes of exposition voice man then Lord of the Rings and polished off with epic Joan of Arc. The performances were disjointed as was changing accents of both Stewart and Hemsworth. If you want give a fresh approach to old story then don't just rip off all the recent fantasy films . Tick list of is was when they made it : Vampires :check , LOTR: check, famous actors as dwarves: check, Rousing battles speaks: check. Sadly, nothing it fits together, the CGI is a bit ropey.
Dark gothic Snow White with a twist. Although following the basic story, everything is new which is great compared to the same old boring stuff like Mirror Mirror. Good casting, even Kristen Stewart wasn't annoying in this. The queen was fantasically wicked and it oozed gothic and evil. A must see.
Seems to me that's when fairy tales meets Twilight Saga. This movie makes those two fit together. Maybe it's because Kirsten Stewart, maybe not.
3/10: Innovative reinvention of the fairy tale and great visuals but the female lead, Kirsten Stewart, really ruined the whole film for me. She acts the same as in Twilight and was depressingly emotionless throughout. Would definitely be better movie if it was a different actress.
It's an okay film, but something's definitely wrong with it. I'll spoil it for you: what's wrong is the casting.
While each actor/actress has got enormous potential, they simply don't quite match the character's they portray. I personally feel like a black-haired Charlize Theron would've done a nice job of being Snow White. Kristen Stewart looks like she's ready to kick some serious ass, which doesn't make sense given she's been locked up saying the Lord's Prayer for some sixteen years. Chris Hemsworth is attractive but looks like he should be Snow White's dad. (Hey, potential remake: make the huntsman Snow's dad and maybe that's why he doesn't want to kill her wow) And uh the boy who played Finnick…
the problem with this movie is that you think it's going to end like five times before it actually does and then the actual ending is worse than the other five potential endings they could have set up.
this movie felt like an an exercise in trying to get funding for a sequel that it didn't succeed in being a good standalone movie and because of that there isn't gonna be a sequel since it's kind of a piece of shit.
chris hemsworth really can't act sorry. charlize theron and sam claflin are the only good people in this entire ensemble really.
Always here for Charlize Theron
I only got half thorough and was bored. For the bit I saw, 3 stars
My review -- this film is now showing at Hollywood cinema Norwich, it is outstanding and a very different interpretation of Snow White. Now yes this film is long [127 minutes,] but it is very well constructed, which in that construction is great time management there is always something happening on the screen, which creates fluency and a well detailed storyline. One of the biggest assets of this film and it didn't go unnoticed in my opinion, the artistic temperament and atmosphere is impeccable, from the outset the atmosphere is dark with some great camera angles which bring the viewer down to the level of the actor or actress, which is a very difficult scene to set because if you…
