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.

The result is tangled and overblown.

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.
