Snow White and The Huntsman (2012)

Directed byRupert Sanders

Starring: Kristen Stewart (Snow White), Chris Hemsworth (the huntsman), Charlize Theron (Ravenna)


"The Fairytale is Over"


While the movie has its visual merits, the acting, the plot, casting, and the movie itself is somewhat contrived and shaky. Kristen Stewart cast as the fairest of them all (ousting Charlize Theron’s RIGHTFUL place) is ridiculous and absolutely laughable. Sure, beauty may be subjective and it may be possible that some might think Stewart’s Snow White is prettier than the Evil Queen, but… uhmm, cmon!!!!!

Oh and her acting.... That “uplifting speech” scene wherein she was supposed to stoke the fire within her people’s hearts so they’ll fight with her? terrible.. and is that a british accent im hearing? puh-lease.

Theron is not entirely impeccable. Acting is campy/overdone, but i think the director is entirely to blame.

Characters are underdeveloped. Dialogues fall flat every now and then.

Rupert Sanders probably thought that since it is his first feature film (and a big-budgeted one) he can grab all the flavors of fantasy films and cast some budding stars in this movie and make it work. Well it didn’t. I dont understand why they are planning a sequel to this project.

SWATH has its good elements. but unfortunately, the bad ones overshadowed the few good stuff in it.

CHARLIZE: “Mirror mirror, on the wall, who’s fairest of them all?”
MIRROR (Which actually looks like a gong or a huge cymbal): “Kristen Stewart is fairer than you Charlize, get over it.”


MY RATINGS:  2.5/5 (for the visuals...  It could have been a really good film except for the hot mess that is the entire story. I'll still be  waiting for Rupert Sanders next project, maybe he'll polish his techniques then..)
