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

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.

Format:DVD
Snow White and the Huntsman is a film that is resigned to a three star rating because it is an opportunity missed. The story of a princess destined to defeat an evil queen is nothing revolutionary or unique but this film doesn't even attempt to make that tried and tested formula original. Instead the story is very straightforward and as such the film suffers somewhat because of this. There seems to be no life in the plot or the screenplay for that matter, which at times can feel stilted and cliched. This film could have been far more epic and engaging if so much time hadn't been spent on plodding through landscapes which, however stunning they may be, doesn't make for a gripping film.
However, this film does have many good things going for it, perhaps most impressive being the talented Rupert Sanders who directs with a keen eye for action and the more subtle scenes. His skills are also evident in the beauty of this film, there are some visually stunning set pieces in particular the evil Queen's soldiers made from shards of black rock, a strange Tim Burton esuque dark forest and a meeting with what looks like the forest god from Princess Mononoke. Yet this stream of visually brilliant set pieces could also be considered as the films downfall as at times it feels like Sanders is simply including snipits from all his favourite fantasy films. There is a defenite Lord of the Rings type ambition in his direction but it never even begins to reach the epic scope of Jackson's masterpiece and neither does its story resemble anything tolkein's plots, though it doesn't fail in trying to. Though the special effects are flawless, never overused.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wasn't expecting much... 13 Oct 2012
By anna
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars They could have done so much more... 16 April 2013
By N. Lang
Format:DVD
As an avid fan of all things fantasy I was very open minded, hopeful even, with this incarnation of Snow White. Let alone when you throw in Thor alongside Ms Theron.

After a promising start, it never quite seemed to get the "oompf" you are waiting for... Theron is very menacing in her moments of anguish, as is Chris, but the script ends up lacking, and you feel you could have added better parts yourself given half the chance.

Some action sequences are not up to the usual CGI standard we have come to expect, and unfortunately Snow White really does seem to be another stammering and confused Bella Swan. Don't get me wrong, I am not a hater of Stewart, but definitely feel her best role is yet to come.

There also seemed to be a few scenes taken from other fantasy movies. This may have been a deliberate heads-up to sequences from The Neverending Story [DVD] [1985] and the like perhaps, but did seem a little unsubtle.

That said, all the dwarves were fab :)the scenes were set well and as aTV fantasy movie is was ok... just could have been so much better!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dark not Disney 5 Nov 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Throw out your ideas of disney. Come to this with a blank mind.
Brilliant special effects. Kirsten is excellent in the part. This was a role not
Intended for someone who pouts beautifully on camera. It's dirty and gritty
As the character was intended to be someone who had spent about 8 years
In solitary confinement - you would no expect the character to be bubbly and
Gushing. I would say throw away the story book, and see this with fresh eyes.

3.0 out of 5 stars Visually Stunning But Missed Potential 20 July 2012
By Quinn
Format:DVD
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.
