Snow White and the Huntsman Movie Reviews
User reviews on Snow White and the Huntsman
I had pretty high expectations for this film and even though it was not as wonderful as I thought it will be I thought it was pretty great and I recommend seeing it in the theaters. It is one of those movies that have to be seen in the theaters because it is really stunning visually and I am glad I got to experience it on the big screen. The film is really appealing to the eye and I enjoyed the way the fairy tale was told and the characters as well. I think that Kristen Stewart is not the greatest actress and I usually do not enjoy watching her on the big screen but in this film she was alright. Charlize Theron was amazing and I believe she is one of the greatest actresses today, every role that she takes comes alive and I can not imgine anyone playing an evil queen better than she did. Overall, I had fun watching this film and I think it is worth the price of the movie ticket.
It was, on a whole, a super movie. I loved the special effects and the evil brother although I would have liked to see what happened between them and the troll.. not just to the heroin. Well told story and the Evil Queen did an OUTSTANDING job of acting. Snow White was good too but I think the Director failed in the end and just left her standing there when I was expecting her to say something. Here is the way I see the movie ending and tell me if this ins't a better ending.
Snow White is holding the tree branch in her hand and after being proclaimed the Queen, she should say " Thank you all.. The Evil Queen is dead and my Fathers Kingdom will be restored to it's previous glory please come with me now and lets start to rebuild Our kingdom. She walks between the people from the Thrown thanking people and as she leaves the Chamber she shows love for the Huntsman and takes his hand in hers and leads him with her out the door. The next scene shows them at the entrance to the castle and greeting them is the White Stag who again Bows to the Queen and she to him and behind the Stag you see a trail of regrowth of the land and flowers and trees along the pathway. Then the Stag and all of them go forward towards the ravaged land and you see flowers start to bloom and trees start to grow back and blossom as they fade into the sky and out....with credits... I think this is a much better ending then just leaving her standing there with a branch in her hand. Duh...
On the heels of the throw away "Mirror Mirror" comes "Snow White and the Huntsman". This truly evil step sister of a movie erases that earlier film's goofy blandness and replaces it with something dark and stylish. No goofy humor, no cute dwarfs. This movie is dark, and feels a lot more true to the Brothers Grimm fairy tale it's based on. Snow White (Kristen Stewart) escapes from her evil stepmother Ravenna, played by an absolutely wicked Charlize Theron. Ravenna feeds off others to keep her youthful beauty, and sends the huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) off to dispatch Snow White so she can eat her heart. That's not a euphemism; this movie is pretty violent and gory. But this is a Snow White we haven't seen before. She's not waiting for her prince, she's learning to fight and putting together an army to defeat Ravenna. Stewart does an OK job (she really doesn't have much range), and for once, the male lead has the underwritten part. But the main thing here is the look of the film. First time director Rupert Sanders does wonders visually, less so with the story as the movie goes on. It's still a unique telling of a tale that we've seen way too many times that's worth seeing.
I loved this film and I think it is worth seeing in the movie theaters. I thought the film was very interesting, dangerous, dark, intelligent and absolutely beautiful . Visually the film was fantastic and I was really amazed by it. The film has this beautiful darkness about it and I just absolutely loved that mysterious and daring atmosphere of the film. THe filmmakers actually breathed some new air into an old tale and the cast made it alive with beautiful performances. Even though the film is full of special effects and I usually do not like it but in this film the effects work for the greater good and it enriches the story. Overall, I loved this film and I highly recommend seeing it in the theaters.
I really liked this film and highly recommend seeing it in the theaters. The film was absolutely beautiful visually and it was intelligent and interesting as well. The cast definitely enhanced the whole experience by giving amazing performances and really committing to the characters. I like that the film had some darkness about it and that the director was not afraid to play with a very old story and beloved fairytale. I am not the biggest fan of Kristen Stewart but she was alright in this film, still kind of dull but bearable while Charlize theron totally stole the show with her performance, it was amazing.
