Snow White & the Huntsman (2012)

Written by: Evan Daugherty, John Lee Hancock, Hossein Amini
Directed by: Rupert Sanders
Starring: Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth

This movie is a home run before you see it. We all remember the first animated feature film ever (Snow White & The Seven Dwarfs) and no one in their right mind would poop poop that film. So the remake in with live action can only be a masterpiece.

The Cinematography alone is spotless. It has a transporting way of pushing you into a wonderland of magic and mystery. The camera moves are transcendent. It has an impressive quality. 

Kristen Stewart, star of the twilight saga, is almost perfect in this roll as Snow White. She has very few lines and is simply a victim of her circumstances. She plays the innocent card to perfection and is completely believable except for her moments of confrontation with her counter star Chris Hemsworth, Star of Thor & The Avengers. Hemsworth is, in every way, this roll. He is the drunken rough neck huntsman who has lost his wife and true love and is forced into helping Snow White who he soon falls in love with.

But this is all just fluff compared to the star of this film Charlize Theron! Theron is immaculate as the wicked queen / witch who seduces the audience with her stoic regal nature. Theron has been in many wonderful films and she is a veteran at giving herself to a character. The queen, hungry for youth and beauty, has powers that are mystical, heavy on the special effects and unexplained, keeping us guessing and glued to the screen. This film she brings her best qualities and she is beautiful.

Top 5 rating. This film isn’t amazing as a story but it has everything going for it. It’s a the kind of film grandkids will watch a adore. This film is going to be around for a while and you might as well just go with it.
