With the death of the queen, the whole kingdom is in ruins, though none are as mournful as the king and daughter, Snow White.

With the death of the queen, the whole kingdom is in ruins, though none are as mournful as the king and daughter, Snow White. Weeks go by, and the king’s army goes into battle and the king rescues a beautiful prisoner whom he quickly marries, and she becomes Snow White’s stepmother. In “Snow White and the Huntsman”, the evil queen (Charlize Theron) murders the king and plans to rule the entire kingdom forever. Snow White (Kristen Stewart) is forced to live in the castle for eternity. Told that she will be immortal, the evil queen plans to rip out Snow White’s heart. On this day, Snow White escaped from the castle. The evil queen is furious; with no other options left, the evil queen hires a huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) to do the work for her. As he searches for her, Huntsman begins to question his loyalties to the queen. Instead, he saves the king’s daughter rather than turning her in. As they go on a journey throughout the land, both of them have one goal: Kill the queen, for she will stop at nothing to rip out the heart of Snow White… even if it means killing every living creature along the way.

 

Similar to “The Chronicles of Narnia,” the filming in this movie is beautiful and the special effects are top-notch. Charlize Theron’s acting is superb and you can’t help it but to hate her character. The movie got a bit lengthy, and the director could have cut a couple scenes. However, this modern-take on Snow White kept you on the edge of your seat all 127 minutes. It was truly original, yet it stuck to the basic story of the classic fairy tale as well. “Snow White and the Huntsman” is rated PG- 13 for violence and should not be seen by little children. Some scenes are truly disturbing and will make you gag. I would recommend it to anyone who loves action, fairy-tales, and or dark stories. As a lover of Snow White, I can truly say that “Snow White and the Huntsman” will leave you breathless.
