    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.

    Sadly most of this film is forgettable, it took me a few minutes to remember what film I had actually watched. The dwarf cast is the only real highlight and even they fail to offer anything that great.

    Kristen Stewart is the fairest? Jesus Christ! I don't think there's an actress in Hollywood today that looks more trailer-trashy. She's like Taylor Swift's sista from another mista.

    I also don't think I can watch this simply for that fact. What the fuck has happened to casting directors these days. Not to mention there's Charlize screaming--she's not a screamer, this is totally not a role for her. Maybe she chose it, other than being desperate for a paycheck, because she fancies herself a temperamental bitch queen.

    Didn't finish watching this. Not engaging or exciting at all.

    Angefangen den Film zu gucken... aber abgebrochen, weil es echt nicht mein Fall war. Die Charaktere waren seltsam - da schaue ich lieber Game of Thrones.

    I get the feeling I was supposed to hate this, everyone else seems to - I didn't find it nearly as tedious or overblown as I find The Lord of the Rings or the various Robin Hood remakes. If anything lets this film down it would be the less than charismatic male cast; Charlize Theron is very good and I feel like Kristen Stewart was made for the role of being 'the fairest of them all' whilst throwing a few punches.

    "Hot on the heels of the sickly sweet, faithful adaptation Mirror Mirror, Snow White & The Huntsman grumbles into cinemas, offering the dark ‘n’ gritty take on the classic fairytale. However, does having two adaptations of the same source material within months of each other make for overkill?

    Well, yes and no; Mirror Mirror and Huntsman are polar opposites, light and shade, if you will, but the everyone in the Western world for the past two centuries has been regaled with…

    Over the past several years cinemas have been flooded with modern adaptations of older stories and this summer is no different. Film after film, weekend after weekend, these contemporary remakes are seeking to find their own unique take on a classic story and hoping that audiences find something new in the material. It’s a hard thing to reinvent a fairytale as iconic as Snow White, particularly because it has been retold so many times over and over. With Snow White…

    Charlize Theron was amazing as Queen Ravena, the evil stepmother and witch. She was was gorgeous and wonderful, bringing a haunted, unhinged depth to the movie. As such, she is the only reason to watch this movie. It also helped that the design of her gowns was stunning — the one with bird skulls around the neckline was my favorite.

    Other than her, the movie was just so-so.

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    The movie could have been better with a more expressive female lead and a more climatic conclusion. The only scene in which Kristen Stewart really shone was when she was rallying the troops. Chris Hemsworth was great as the huntsman. I also felt that the other characters were under-utilised in influencing the story line.

    Regarding the character of Snow White in this film, I found that her actions seemed to contradict each other.

    Case in point:
    1. Snow White escapes…
