Snow White and the Huntsman (2012)

Director: Rupert Sanders

Stars: Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron, Bob Hoskins

Snow White is the imprisoned daughter of the late king, but she escapes just as the Magic Mirror declares her the source of the Evil Queen's immortality. The Queen sends her men, led by a local huntsman, to bring her back. But upon her capture, the huntsman finds he's being played and turns against the Queen's men, saving Snow White in the process. Snow's childhood friend, William, learns that she is alive and sets off to save her.

When you think of anything to do with Snow White, you think of the Disney cartoon. It is mostly sweet with a little scare for the kids. There is not any fighting or anything like that. This movie shows a rougher and a more battle part of the fairy tale. This is a dirty and gritty telling of a beautiful story. They even included the dwarves in the movie, but it did not show their little house. I thought she became the dwarves housekeeper. That is how it was in the cartoon.

The movie looked great. The special effects were incredible for this movie. The Queen's army were made out of a pile of broken black shards that build themselves up or fall apart. It look really cool. The fantasy animals and creatures in the forest were brilliantly made. They matched the background, so well that it looked normal. They made this movie look amazing. It was the acting that was not wonderful. It was not bad, but it was nothing to write home about.

This is a good movie. It was made for an older audience, not small children. I think it would be too much for them to handle. If you have not seen this movie yet, then you should give it a chance. It is not bad at all. Enjoy.
