The film exceeded expectations when released in the U.S. becoming a huge
box-office success.
Have to say, no surprise to me.
It is a visually stunning production.
'Same Story'.....yet, with a different spin for the 'Grimm's' fairy-tale.
Other than the 'Snow White' story starring 'Sigourney Weaver' this is perhaps
the darkest version yet.
Of course with 'Twilight' star 'Kirsten Stewart' in the lead role the film was
always going to attract a large audience.
Quite simply and enjoyable watch......awesome entertainment.

But the movie is great. The effects - both visual and special - were amazing. Plain and simple. The scenery is fantastic and very well incorporated into the movie. Theron makes a convincing Queen, worthy of our fear. Hemsworth makes a believable drunken huntsman, lost in his own grief and Stewart delivers one of the best portrayals of one of the most recognisable fairytale characters. I was - along with a lot of other people, I'm sure - surprised and almost "shocked" at the uncharacteristic casting choices but after viewing the finished product I understood and agreed.
Some people write these reviews based solely on trying to tarnish the acting of an actor or actress. It's both rude and tacky.
The truth is, the movie is good. It's not Oscar worthy but I don't think I've ever read anything about it being in the running for a statuette. It's not as ground breaking as some apparently thought it would be, but it is fun and entertaining and I will gladly place it into my collection.

Making a more serious, not really children oriented version of "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs", was a great idea - but it was not very well made and the result is an only half-successful film, saved from total failure by incredible performance of Charlize Theron. This review contains some limited SPOILERS.

The story is of course very well known and in its main lines this film sticks to it, so there is no real need to tell it again here. However the story was changed very much as far as the character and the background of the Evil Queen (Charlize Theron) are concerned. In this film she has a name (Ravenna) and a past, of which I will say only that it is radically feminist...))) She is also much, much more powerful than in the 1937 film and even than in the original Grimm's tale. In this film she is a REALLY powerful sorceress, well versed in the darkest magic and using it massively, both to extend her already unnaturaly long life and to maintain her power over the land. But, and that was a really excellent idea, in the same time she is a poison to the land - the dark magic she uses makes the whole once flourishing country sick...

Charlize Theron is THE reason for which this thing is even watchable. Her Ravenna is a really terrifying creature, feeding on life force of young maidens and rotten insides of dead birds, flying with carrion birds, maintaining an incestuous relation with her own brother ("Game of Thrones" anybody?) when in the same time clearly hating men, using dagger, poison, hexes and legions of henchmen with same deadly skill, etc. She is a real delight to watch!

Snow White was changed deeply too, from a damsel in distress awaiting her prince to a shield-maiden leading her army to war.

Simply the best Epic Movie since "Gladiator". A perfect blend of the hauntingly beautiful, fight scenes, top notch acting, special effects etcetera. This is also Kristen Stewarts best performance up to date. Although her performance, playing a disabled girl in "The Cake Eaters", is also great. Tons of more Girl Power here than in the rather lame role she had to play i "Twilight". Superb... Everything! (Comes from a guy who collects Criterion and film history in general).

I remember seeing the trailer for this and thinking the visuals looked quite impressive and it had a good cast so thought I'd take a look.
It turned out to be an entertaining retelling of the story. I was never really involved with the characters but it was good value as simple entertainment.
There are some fantastic looking visuals and everything from the production design to the costumes and effects are impressive. The cast is also great and it was a nice surprise to see how many well known and impressive actors there were amongst the dwarves.
Kristen Stewart and Chris Hemsworth are solid and it's fun watching Charlize Theron get her crazy on.
Not really one for the young kids and not really clever enough to keep adults hooked, this is kind of in the middle and might find an audience with teens and adults wanting to watch a bit of simple escapism.

I was intrigued by this film, and wondered what kind of take on Snow White this would be. It is very dark, darker than I thought it would be, and cleverly incorporates the recognisable elements of the original fairlytale into it without seeming to overdo it. Kristen Stewart, who I have only seen in Panic Room before this, gives an excellent performance. I don't know why she has been slated by others on here, as for me, she gave a believable and gritty performance.I liked the fact that she is a tough woman, battling another tough woman, and has an army of men in league with her-very refreshing when so many woman in Hollywood are shoved into the tiresome role of 'girlfriend' or 'sex kitten'. The rest of the cast are excellent too-Charlize Theron is really rather scary as the evil Queen! The visuals are beautiful and bleak and the music by John Newton Howard is lovely. I found this moving, well acted and highly enjoyable. Try it without having any preconceptions and you'll love it.
