Snow White and the Huntsman

Retelling of the Brothers Grimm Snow White fairy tale starring Kristen Stewart (Twilight), Charlize Theron (Prometheus) and Chris Hemsworth (Thor).

Stewart is Snow White, the only person in the land fairer than the Evil Queen (Theron). A threat to her reign, the Queen dispatches a huntsman (Hemsworth) to kill her. Instead of carrying out the job, the Huntsman sides with White and mentors her in the art of war. The pair then embark on a quest to vanquish the Queen.

The great cast also includes Ian McShane, Ray Winstone, Toby Jones, Bob Hopskins, Eddie Marsan and Nick Frost as the dwarves.

Handsome but hollow, Snow White & the Huntsman is easily among the stranger additions to a roster of rebooted fairy tales.

A visually inventive, deliciously dark fairytale reheat. The story's far from the stuff of legend, but Theron makes for a ferocious meanie, helping to flush away "Mirror Mirror's" sugary aftertaste.

The rousing speeches and booming battle scenes are all well done as far as blockbuster spectacle goes, but you can't help but feel the filmmakers' resistance to the story's grimmer undercurrents.

Rare among the recent fairy tale adaptions (from 'Mirror Mirror' to the dreadful 'Red Riding Hood') the invigorating Snow White and the Huntsman actually breathes new life into an old story.

Though it is an ambitious - at times mesmerizing - application of the latest cinematic technology, the movie tries to recapture some of the menace of the stories that used to be told to scare children rather than console them.

Snow White and the Huntsman reinvents the legendary story in a film of astonishing beauty and imagination.

A bold rethinking of a familiar old story and striking design elements are undercut by a draggy midsection and undeveloped characters in Snow White and the Huntsman.

A tastefully overbearing franchise fairy tale with a handful of ravishing touches.

A strong visual style tussles with flaccid storytelling in this ambitious retelling of Grimm. It won't exactly have Walt Disney spinning in his secret ice chamber, but you may wish they spent more time worrying about what exactly the film is than who it's for.

There was alot of action, Theron was outstanding in her role as the wicked stepmother and I loved that whole make believe fairy tale story of good verses evil.

Stunning visuals and great storyline ! . The acting is mediocre, but when you're wrapped up in the movie because of the action and fast pace then this is of minor consequence. A great movie for adults and teens alike - if you don't like this genre and know you wont like it - simply don'y go see it !

This is a great movie to see, there is heaps of action and a love story with a twist. A Must see movie, and for the ladies there are some hot guys in this movie. The costume department outdid themselves with the dresses Charlize Theron wore.

It's a fairytale. Don't expect more and you won't be disappointed. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed Snow White and the Huntsman. Loved the 'wow' affects but 'woe is me' over Kirsten Stewart;s performance She seemed so awkward most of the time that her pretty little face was merely contorted into a very plain, if not ugly look of puzzlement rather...

Yes,it is a fairytale for adults!It is a shame that the script is poorly written and struggles at times to flow.Kristen Stewart who acts in the Twilight movies is Snow White.She does her best with the script and what she has to work with but she just did not create the right image for the part. The real plus for this movie is the evil queen.Her strong...

In a time where the market seems to be booming with a second coming of the fairytale, another retelling of the story of "Snow White" graces the box office with a darker tone and "Thor", "Bella Swan" and Charlize Theron leading an ensemble cast to it's end. This is the tale of "Snow White And The Huntsman". While the story follows it's typical path, the...

I enjoyed this movie more than I thought I would. Kristen Stewart was great as Snow White as was Charlize Theron as the queen. I'm not so sure about Chris Hemsworth though, I still just see him as Kim from 'Home and Away'. I thought the visual effects were great although wasn't too keen on those weird fairies. If you're a 'Twilight' fan it is a great watch,...

If you didn't notice the horses, you may add a star. For those who don't know. Horses that know they are going to fall raise their heads. Well trained stunt horses can fall spectacularly on cue, even landing on mark and holding still as required. Twice I saw horses being forcibly yanked to the ground in the battle charge. As for the white steed carried...

as movies go it was OK but it would be made better if they cut the scenes where the dwarfs make repeated reference to their own faeces ( " sending a log down the river" and "that looks like one of mine" being the two most forgettable). The only stars for this movie are the ones I saw after I rammed my own head against the wall in a vain attempt to...

If you want to see a good movie in this current movie season, you'd be better off going to see Brave. Expectations fell short. Charlize Theron does not suit her evil and melodramatic role as the queen (though in the trailers she is stunning) and some moments in the movie are like "Why?" Why so tense, over the smallest things? And, why is Snow the only one...
