Snow White And The Huntsman – Movie Review

by MARIA on September 18, 2012

First, let’s take a moment and just stare at this glorious picture above.

I know it’s not the official movie poster, but again…who cares. Now let’s stare at that pic some more.

Alrighty then.

Some official plot from iTunes: “From the Producer of Alice in Wonderland comes a special Extended Edition of the visionary movie that turned a legendary tale into an action-adventure epic. The evil Queen Ravenna (Academy Award® winner Charlize Theron) will rule forever if she can take the life of Snow White (Kristen Stewart), so she dispatches the Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) to track her down. But the wicked ruler never imagined that the Huntsman would train the girl to become a brave warrior, skilled in the art of war. Filled with intense battles and spectacular visual effects that “shouldn’t be missed” – Shawn Edwards, Fox-TV, Snow White & the Huntsman – Extended Edition includes more thrilling action not seen in theaters.”

I had high hopes for this one, despite Kristen Stewart being cast as Snow White. I didn’t even have to watch to know that was one big mistake on casting’s part. She is awful – monotone, and the same facial expressions throughout the entire movie. Ugh. Can you tell I’m not a fan?

First off, I thought the movie was beautiful to watch. It had some cool special effects and truly gorgeous visuals, however it seemed to drag on and I found it boring in parts. Boo.

I thought Charlize Theron was fabulous as the Evil Queen – very evil and screamy (yes that’s a word). I really liked her and enjoyed watching her – probably because it’s like looking in the mirror. Ahem.

Chris Hemsworth as the Huntsman was delightful – never has there been a hotter man running through a forest, all sweaty and dirty and hawt. If anything, just rent it to watch him run through the forest – and then watch it again in slow motion.

You’re welcome.

And yes, that dwarf that looks incredibly like Bob Hoskins, was Bob Hoskins.

Watch it or Not? I say WATCH IT, but don’t throw things at the television when Snow White is on screen although you may want to. It’s a good date night rental, but not for the little ones – there are a few frightening scenes.

Have you seen it? What did you think?

Thanks for the review. I have looked at the trailer many times but never decided to watch it! I read iTunes reviews and see how many gold stars are given. Keep posting your reviews. I enjoy reading them since another opinion is good!

I’ll watch for the Huntsman. Can I fast forward the other parts?

We just watched it this weekend. My husband found it drawnout as well.
Kristen was not the right fit for the part, although I do like her in other movies.
Charlize was awesome as was Chris. They made the whole movie worth watching.

I take it from this review that Kristen Stewart is using her same acting skills (or lack of them) from Twilight. She should have been cast as the female terminator in T3, I don’t think anybody could play being emotionless as well as her.
