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.

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.

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.

This 2012 fantasy has been given a new spin on the traditional fairy tale "Snow White" compiled by the Brothers Grimm. In this version the evil witch Ravenna [Charlize Theron] tricks the King into marriage and immediately murders him imprisoning Snow White in a tower. Years later, Snow White [Kristen Stewart] escapes into the `Dark Forest, pursued by Eric, the Huntsman [Chris Hemsworth] as she sets about to regain her fathers kingdom.
All the usual suspects are included in the mix, the mirror, the dwarves, poisoned apple, fairies, love, unrequited love, friendship and betrayal but not how you'd expect it. The special effects are phenomenal, especially the `Forest' which is really intimidating and Ravenna is sinisterly played to perfection.
Traditionalists may frown but youngsters and adults alike will soon be sucked in by the eerie atmosphere and desperate plight of Snow White. There are some humorous lines, impressive battles, monsters and cute bunny rabbits, but will the Evil Queen be stopped? The 12 rating is appropriate [so take care with younger viewers] for whilst it's a `family' movie, the atmosphere is dark -very dark, and so well done it could upset the more sensitive viewer. A definite ***** despite a few easily overlooked shoddy lines and some script errors.

Great movie very dark in places just how I like it a modern take on a classic tale, Ray Winstone as one of the dwarfs priceless, certainly worth a watch though maybe not for the younger ones so pack them off to bed get comfy and enjoy this story.

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.
