Product Description

In the epic action-adventure Snow White and the Huntsman, Kristen Stewart (Twilight) plays the only person in the land fairer than the evil queen (Oscar® winner Charlize Theron) who is out to destroy her. But what the wicked ruler never imagined is that the young woman threatening her reign has been training in the art of war with a huntsman (Chris Hemsworth, Thor) who was dispatched to kill her. Sam Claflin (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) joins the cast as the prince long enchanted by Snow White’s beauty and power.

The breathtaking new vision of the legendary tale is from Joe Roth, the producer of Alice in Wonderland, producer Sam Mercer (The Sixth Sense) and acclaimed commercial director and state-of-the-art visualist Rupert Sanders.

From Amazon.co.uk

Definitely not your average retelling of the classic Snow White fairy tale, Snow White and the Huntsman is a dark, action-fantasy film that's based more on the Brothers Grimm fairy tale than the well-known Disney version of the story. It features intriguing concepts, impressive special effects, and some disappointingly lackluster acting.

The essence of the "Snow White" story is preserved in this recounting: the queen's beautiful daughter Snow White, who is heir to the throne, is displaced and persecuted by an evil stepmother after her mother dies. Here, the evil stepmother Ravenna possesses a disturbing power to maintain her own perpetual youth by stealing youthfulness from the hearts of the young and beautiful, but her magic mirror warns that Snow White's innocence and purity as she comes of age will destroy Ravenna's chance at immortality. When Snow White escapes from the castle prison, Ravenna hires a downtrodden Huntsman to bring her back so that Ravenna can steal her youth and achieve personal immortality. But Snow White runs into a dark and sinister forest where mushrooms disperse hallucinogenic spores, trees come to life, flocks of bats spring from inanimate objects, and dwarves lurk in the shadows. The roles of the seven dwarves and the Huntsman in this version of the story prove to be quite different from the original, but what remain steadfast are Snow White's inner strength and absolute goodness, and her stepmother's innate evilness.

This film is full of fascinating imagery that's brought to life through powerful special effects, great costuming, and captivating cinematography--the scenes in the dark forest and the fairy-filled wilderness beyond are reason enough to see it. Unfortunately, the story moves a bit slowly and the acting by Kristen Stewart (Snow White) and Chris Hemsworth (Huntsman) is rather stoical and passionless and lacks chemistry, though Charlize Theron does stand out as a particularly disturbing Ravenna. --Tami Horiuchi

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.

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.

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.

I bought this DVD on January 2013 for my girlfriend as a gift. She had seen the trailer and really wanted to see the film. I was happy to watch it alongside her.

The product is presented in a 1 disc version and is just over 2 hours long. It comes under the genre of "Fantasy Action Film" and is about the retelling of the Snow White story, which most viewers will be more aware of from either books or DVDs. It has a decent cast line up with Charlie Theron (The evil Queen), Kristen Stewart (The kind hearted wannabe Queen) and the Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth).

The film has impressive graphics / special effects with an equally impressive scenery. The reedited story line is quite good and the acting from Hemsworth and Stewart is reasonably good whilst the acting of Theron is excellent. Her performance is worthy of at least a nomination in both the oscars and golden globes as she plays the role of the evil queen very convincingly and naturally. The downside of the film however is that Theron's performance outbalances all other areas of the film and it makes everything else look less impressive.

My girlfriend enjoyed the film to some degree (7/10) whilst I found that it was reasonably entertaining in parts and although I did not sit on the edge of my seat at any point or asked my girlfriend to pause it when I went to the toilet, I did find it quite good and would award it a 6/10.

Snow White and The Huntsman had the potential to be a fantasy masterpiece; there was a star-studded cast, the action scenes were gripping and the visual effects were simply fantastic. While many of the vital ingredients were there it felt like something was missing. We see the beautiful but twisted Queen (Theron) obsessed with vanity and power as she seeks to destroy the innocent Snow White (Stewart) with the help of the Huntsman (Hemsworth) and rule her kingdom. However the storyline felt disjointed and slightly comedic (albeit unintentionally at times) when the dwarves and magical creatures arrived. Scenes such as the Dark Forest were atmospheric but consequently ruined by awkward acting when the tension should be palpable. Perhaps my expectations were too high from the action-packed trailer but Snow White didn't hit the mark for me. Many of the shots were aesthetically beautiful, such as the Queen rising naked dripping in liquid, but these images rarely added substance to the plot despite being memorable. Unfortunately I felt that the lead roles fell a little flat and lacked the necessary chemistry for this wonderful story. Yes, this film injects some new ideas and good effects into this classic fairytale but it definitely had the potential to be something more.
