4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad at all!, 14 Oct 2012
This review is from: Snow White and the Huntsman - Limited Edition Steelbook (Blu-ray + Digital Copy + UV Copy) (Blu-ray)
A lot of hate for this film in the lower end of the stars spectrum seems to be based entirely on the fact Kristen Stewart is in the film. And as it is super important that nobody is seen to like anything even closely linked to twilight.

I dislike twilight as much as the next adult who doesn't really get the appeal of a hundred+ year old vampire seducing a teenage school girl! But I think it is important to realise that this is not Kristen Stewarts fault and shouldn't be the sole point on which all her future work is judged.
(note, this is not to dismiss every review down in the 1 and 2 stars, some have some really valid points- just the ones that clearly went into the film decided that she is Bella and thus must be slammed)

So the film, I really enjoyed it. The acting is solid for the most, although not sure why Chris Hemworth went with the Scottish accent? He does a fairly good job with it, but it does slip every now and then.
Kristen Stewart is a good snow white, she has a great look for that pure and innocent feel the film needed. She also did a pretty good job with her accent and saved what could have been a fairly forgettable part with a great delivery of a rousing speech towards the back end of the movie.
The stand out performances for me were Charlize Theron and Sam Spruell, who put in excellent turns as the Wicked Queen and her brother.

I do think it was a little long and drawn out in places, with appearances by characters from the tale that felt shoehorned in. But A very enjoyable film, and one that maybe is taking a little more flack than it deserves in my opinion.
