Snow White & the Huntsman - Movie Review
Let's say I'm a fairytale lover. I saw Mirror Mirror and it didn't put the Snow White damper on me to stop me from seeing Snow White and The Huntsman.
In a twist to the fairy tale, the Huntsman ordered to take Snow White into the woods to be killed winds up becoming her protector and mentor in a quest to vanquish the Evil Queen.
Cast: Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron, Sam Claflin, Sam Spruell, Ian McShane - Director: Rupert Sanders
Hummmm. The good, Charlize Theron - stole-the-show! Dang she scared me. Beauty, evil, cunning all wrapped up into a queenly package. Then there was Snow White - eh, I just had a few beefs with her. Like, how did she learn all those fighting skills in such a short time? And Kristen Stewart's rally speech - *hand in face*. But with all the little ticks of her role as Snow White ... I still enjoyed it but maybe not as much as I personally hoped to. If you love the Snow White tale like I do, then you'll be able to sit through this pleasantly because of the special effects, the evil queen's presence and well hope that Snow White will win the day. You know what? All of that happened, just a bit differently than the original fairytale. I give this 3 out of 5 swords.
