Snow White & The Huntsman is the new film based on the Brothers Grimm fairy tale. In this adaptation, Kristen Stewart plays, Snow White, the only person in the land fairer than the evil queen,played by Charlize Theron, who is out to destroy her. But the Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth; Avengers, Thor, Cabin In The Woods) the queen orders to bring Snow White in from the woods to be killed winds up becoming her protector in a quest to vanquish the Evil Queen.
I said before that I was looking forward to this movie mostly because of Charlize and because Kristen Stewart didn’t speak at all. Well I saw the movie this past week and it was pretty ok. On a ratings scale, it would be a B-. Charlize is good as usual. She did her thing with this part and is clearly the best part of this movie. She is also like crazy beautiful. I just kept looking at her was just mesmerized. Chris Hemsworth is also nice to look at. I thought with what he was given, he did a good job. I also liked that they didn’t go into a full-blown love story with the huntsman and Snow White but just provided you with teases of one.
As for Kristen Stewart, I was loving that the trailer was actually pretty true to the movie in that Kristen Stewart didn’t have many lines in the movie. There so many long stretches of dialogue that didn’t include her that I was just trilled. She also was able to emote more at a couple of points something other than the bitch face that she has permanently stuck on.
I would recommend this movie because it has everything a good gothic fantasy movie should: good action, a superb villain and just a hint of a love story. Snow White & The Huntsman is in theaters now.
