Synopsis


Snow White and the Huntsman
The enchanting Snow White (Kristen Stewart) joins forces with the fierce Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth), who was recruited by the diabolical Queen (Charlize Theron) to kill the fair beauty, and together they fight to rid their kingdom of evil in this bold new take on the fairy-tale classic from commercial director Rupert Sanders. Obsessed with being the fairest woman in the land, the Queen learns that Snow White will soon surpass her in beauty, and seeks to achieve immortality by consuming the young girl's heart. But the Huntsman is the only one capable of braving the dark forest to seek out Snow White. Threatened with death should he refuse to follow his order, the Huntsman finds Snow White, and begins training her for the arduous battle ahead. Meanwhile, a handsome prince (Sam Claflin) falls hopelessly under Snow White's spell. Ray Winstone, Ian McShane, Eddie Izzard, Bob Hoskins, Toby Jones, Eddie Marsan, and Stephen Graham co-star as the seven dwarfs. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Easily better than "Mirror Mirror"

    Snow White is one of the oldest fairy tales ever written. Also the one most recently turned into a feature film. Less than three months ago, in fact. Is this Universal Pictures offering better or just some carbon copy? Snow White (played as a young woman by Raffey Cassidy) is the child of a benevolent king and a woman who died as a result of complications arising from childbirth. Despite her tragedy, however, she has a happy childhood. Then her father takes up arms against a dark army. The soldiers in that army, while capable of striking blows as fierce as any and fiercer than some, breaks like glass when struck by the enemy. With the dark army vanquished, the king inspects a carriage that survived the battle and finds a woman inside. The woman, Ravenna (played by Charlize Theron), soon marries the king who fell in love with her at first sight. She appears to have genuine affection for the king and Snow in the short period leading up to the wedding, but that is, of course, a ruse. On their wedding night, she murders her husband while her brother Finn (played by Sam Spruell) overruns the kingdom with the help of that same dark army that the king believed had kidnapped Ravenna. Snow attempts to flee, but is captured and imprisoned in the palace tower. Years pass and Ravenna maintains her beauty and youth by draining the life from young women whose beauty might one day surpass her own. Those women are identified by the queen’s mirror and chief advisor (voiced by Christopher Obi Ogugwa). When she reaches adulthood, the mirror tells Ravenna that she may maintain her youth indefinitely if she kills Snow White and takes out her heart. Snow (now played by Kristen Stewart) escapes the kingdom when the queen sends her brother to escort her. Obviously, there’s a great deal more to the story. For example, the Huntsman has yet to be introduced. Neither, for that matter, have the dwarves. And in this film, the men portraying the dwarves are of average or above average stature made to look like dwarves through the use of special effects as opposed to men who are actually shorter than 4’10”. There are comparisons being made between this film and Mirror Mirror, but they have very little in common, outside of the main characters. If more time had passed between the release dates, they’d stand separately and they should. It’s like comparing Ridley Scott’s Robin Hood to Robin Hood: Men in Tights. I won’t say this film lived up to the hype but, given the degree, I doubt any film could’ve. I will say it’s a quality film and you should see it.

    Finall a version that holds truer to the Grimm borthers original tales of old. Not some Disney version in which they all lived happily ever after. This is a visual feast for the eyes. Which required the use more acting ability and talent than "special effects". As the original Grimm's Fairytales were based in legend and folklore and not for the faint of heart it makes one wonder. If there really was a magic mirror, what ever became of it? Is it hanging in some castle in a german forrest or perhaps it was gathered up and is now stored in a warehouse. Perhaps it only exists in legend and folklore. Movies should trigger the imagination of the viewer. Make the audience ask themselves "What if?" or "What happened to" or "Where is it now". This movie does just that.

    I have always liked the Grimm Brother's version better than Disney's. While this movie goes way overboard on the dark side, it is definitely worth the ride. I was kind of bummed when I heard the huntsman would play such a main figure in this tale, but Hemsworth was brilliant. My 2nd favorite character right after Charlize Theron who was simply dreadful, terrifying and utterly beautiful as the wicked queen. We still have not finished all the special features on the blu-ray definitely glad we purchased it.

    I had high hopes for this film and generally think Kristen Stewart does a great job as an actor, which is why I found it disappointing that she was given such a poor script to work with here. It's an alright film if there's nothing else to watch, and the 4K presentation is stunning in it's clarity, but the movie could have been so much more with a proper story that better serves the legend.

    This adaptation of Snow White was just ok. There are impressive special effects & Charlize Theron is a great actress as always. However, the storyline lacked the luster to keep the viewer interested at all times and the waking of Snow White from her eternal slumber was what really caused this "what could have been a great movie" to implode. Overall, Snow White & The Huntsman is a decent movie. But with the movie money thrown in, this makes for a great deal!

Cant wait to add more to my collection!

    Ii a one word SUMMARY -THIS MOVIE IS ODD. The Queen and her brother desperately needs a back story -it makes no sense- Snow White was somewhat interesting but still tends to the odd -the Huntsman -all I can say is an equally odd tragic character. Some good special effects with the Queen -but made no sense as they just happen Should be a 1 rating but 2 because was an interesting twist on Snow White.
