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…
Not the worst of the Hemsworth movies but definitely not the best. Charlize Theron steals the show in the movie. K-Stew was a miss and Chris was ruggedly handsome in this movie so I loved watching him.
Charlize Theron is fabulous. Kristen Stewart is not. Chris Hemsworth is beautiful and the plot is interesting. I love love love Snow White stories though. Different and better than expected.
Everyone in this movie is so hot but it's pretty fucking awful :/
You've got to admire Kristen Stewart's shrewdness; the quality of her acting will almost always be directly proportional to the quality of the movie it's serving. Incidentally, her performance in Snow White and the Huntsman may be the worst of her career.
(Charlize Theron, on the other hand, is dependably great in everything and single-handedly makes this POS watchable whenever she's on screen.)
Snow White and the Huntsman stumbles a bit with its inconsistent script, but the effects are neat and Charlize Theron's deliciously wicked Evil Queen is a treat.
Ja Sniegbaltītes lomā būtu aktrise, kurai ir harisma un kura tiešām prot tēlot, vērtējums būtu augstāks.
Man nebija iebildumu pret ideju. Bija pat it kā interesanti.
Taču, kaut kas nav kārtībā, ja karaliene ir harismātiskāka un interesantāka nekā galvenā varone, kuras vārds ir filmas nosaukumā un par kuru vispār it kā ir stāsts.
Nu nemāk Stjuarte tēlot. Nemāk. Man liekas, pasaules garlaicīgākā un bezemocionālākā filma būtu tā, kurā galvenajās lomās būtu viņa un Tatums. Kā teica agrāk kādā reklāmā - ir cilvēki, kuriem vienkārši...nesanāk.Un varbūt arī nevajag...
Mežs arī bija iespaidīgs un kostīmu veidotājiem(jau atkal - īpaši karalienes kostīmu radītājiem) cepums.
Taču, jā - ļaunā karaliene ir wow, kamēr Sniegbaltīte ir plakans, bezemocionāls tēls, kurš...i'm sorry, bet tur kaut kādas…
Special effects are well done; whoever chose the hairdo of the Queen's bro should be fired right away, though - it's one thing to ruin a perfectly fine story with poor production, editing and directing, but taking over the entire visuals with a single wig - that's unheard of .
Uma produção visualmente rica, mas de conteúdo oco. Os produtores Joe Roth e Palak Patel só se preocuparam com a técnica e esqueceram de criar um argumentação que sustentasse tudo isso, o enredo e mexido e levado para baixo, eles tinha a oportunidade de alcançar todos os públicos mas vão ficar nas mãos dos seguidores de The Twilight saga.
First time director Rupert Sanders serves up a dark version of the classic tale, quite different from the colorful and faintly humorous "Mirror Mirror" released the same year (2012). Not as visually striking as Tarsem Singh's film, it's still nicely shot (though its impact is diminished by over-grading).
I was hoping for a fresh take on a familiar story, and failing that, perhaps at least some good performances from Charlize Theron, Chris Hemsworth and Kristen Stewart (of whom I'm not much of a fan, but I don't hate her either). Unfortunately, once we soak up the general flavor of things (the traditional fairy tale blended with Lord of the Rings and a little Robin Hood) it settles into a fairly…
Movies about/starring women. I originally started this list just as a reference for myself, but hopefully others will find it…
I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
