A classic fairytale takes a turn for the dark side in the most recent rendition Snow White. This film is of a war between two beauties, yet resembles the children’s classic.
After Snow White’s parents die, the evil Ravena reigns as queen. To maintain her beauty, the queen sucks youthfulness from the young women of the land. The Mirror on the Wall informs her that killing Snow will prevent the queen’s aging and lead her to eternal life.Related Movie
In the Dark Forest, Snow joins forces with the Huntsman, who becomes her right-hand man in war against the queen.
Leading actress Kristen Stewart pleasantly surprises as she proves that she has outgrown her awkward stage from the Twilight series. Stewart, however, delivers an uninspiring pep talk and goes into battle helmet-less, which seemed like a bit of a death wish.
Chris Hemsworth was a bit disappointing, as his role as the Huntsman resembled his most recent character, Thor. On the plus side, Hemsworth is very easy on the eyes.
Charlize Theron embraced her role as Ravena and didn’t leave any disappointment. Her death was a bit of tearjerker as she was the perfect wicked and chilling villain.
The behind the scenes departments did a wonderful job of creating this land of almost-happily ever after. Makeup and costumes brought the characters to life and kept the story believable. Between the trolls and hallucinogenic effects of the Dark Forest, the special effects department turned a usually happy fantasy into a dark, twisted tale.
Although there were a few scenes that left audiences disappointed, the overall cinematography provided for a trip to a dark, mystical.
