Snow White And The Huntsman
Now with one extra dwarf…


submit to reddit

Plot
When the king is murdered by his new bride Ravenna (Theron), his daughter Snow White is locked up for seven years. After her escape, the teenage Snow (Stewart) is pursued by Ravenna, who hires a grieving, sozzled Huntsman (Hemsworth) to bring her back. Dwarves, animals, a troll, an apple and a battle follow.


Verdict
A strong visual style tussles with flaccid storytelling in this ambitious retelling of Grimm. It won’t exactly have Walt Disney spinning in his secret ice chamber, but you may wish they spent more time worrying about what exactly the film is than who it’s for.
