Product Description

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.

When the best acting is done by the voiceless CGI characters (and Kristen Stewart) then you know that something has gone terribly wrong. There was also too much explaining (implying the director did not trust his own abilities to tell a story visually but worse that he actually thinks the audience are stupid). This may well have been because there were too many characters and most without a backstory so there was no real understanding of why people were as they were. Simple really is better. Why can't todays directors believe that the audience can workout a lot all by themselves if they are just shown a well structured scene. Why do they have someone tell you what they have to do and why and usually to someone who already knows that anyway (e.g. as happened in almost every scene between the evil queen and her brother)..Honestly, I can work out intention from a glance, a simple action etc. I don't have to be told.

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.

This one's not great, despite all the 5* nonsense spouted about any film the public thinks was okay gets elevated to "awesome", "great" and all the other silly overused tired worthless words. And five star ratings too.

While it's not great, it's not really dreadful either, and works some new plot-points (distortions?) into what originally was a very simple little fairy-tale, not taking much more than a few pages - just checked, the original translation takes up 5 pages of 12-point text in Word 2003 - who'd have thought it possible to drag that out to a movie over two hours long?

But there's a massive fault in this - it's the casting of Snow White. Kirsten Stewart isn't actually an ugly girl as such - but whoever saw her as the ultimate beauty capable of out-beautying Charlize Theron was clearly out of his head in some way or other. In every way possible?? Did nobody think to have a quick word with him? Nobody at all? Did all the crew think that Stewart was a convincing Snow White? Amazing. She's skinny, and has poor bone structure, and she's lanky. And she wears god-amighty levis under her princess-skirts! Where did that come from! And boots like Doc Martins! More amazement! Walt disney's Snow White, she ain't.

She's not actually a bad actress, but she's not a great one either. We're asked to believe that a lassie who said to the unnamed huntsman that she didn't think she could stick anyone with a dagger when in danger of her life - inside a reel or two changes into Joan of Bleedin' Arc! And in that salted-blade slid... I mean to say, get real, come on!!!

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.
