“Snow White and the Huntsman” Movie Review
Independent Films, Talk Shows, Movie Reviews
One of the most anticipated movies of the summer is finally here, Rupert Sanders’ retelling of the “Snow White” tale. Kristen Stewart stars in the titular role and she’s going head-to-head with Queen Ravenna, the always gorgeous Charlize Theron.
Chris Hemsworth, fresh from the success of “The Avengers,” stars as the Huntsman of the title. This version is dark, dangerous, and ominous. Sure, there are dwarves, a poisoned apple, even a Prince Charming (Prince William played by Sam Claflin), but this “Snow White” is closer to the Brothers Grimm than the Walt Disney version.
And for those Kristen Stewart haters, stop! She’s actually good in this movie and please quit pigeonholing her as Bella Swan from “Twilight.” Her acting skills far supersede being a willing vampire. And by the way, “Drive’s” Hossein Amini co-wrote the script and that explains the tone, the mood, the atmosphere! Take a look at my review:
Transcripts / Production notes / Scripts
Snow White is the only person in the land fairer than the evil queen, who is out to destroy her. But what the wicked ruler never imagined is that the young woman threatening her reign has been training in the art of war with the huntsman who was dispatched to kill her.
