The evil queen is out to destroy the only person in the land fairer than her. But what the wicked ruler never imagined is that the young woman threatening her reign has been training in the art of war with a huntsman dispatched to kill her.
Action Adventure - While based on the familiar fairy tale, this is not a kids' movie or
something nice and sweet like the famous Disney animated version.
This is a darker and more serious take on the film with a couple of
big battle scenes. Violence isn't extreme but it is intense and some
scary images will be too strong for young kids. Charlize Theron
doesn't have nearly as much screen time as the two other stars,
Kristen Stewart and Chris Hemsworth, and the familiar British actors
who play the dwarves have very small roles..
PROFANITY: 3 miscellaneous profanities. SEX/NUDITY: None. VIOLENCE: Fights and battles with stabbings and hits with minimal blood. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Some drinks at leisure. ACTION: Battles, fights, fires. COMEDY: Some comic banter.
Roger EbertFull Review Very Good 'Snow White and the Huntsman' reinvents the legendary story in a film of astonishing beauty and imagination.
USA TodayFull Review Above Average Stunningly shot and inconsistently acted and written, Snow White has enough visual fireworks to keep the film afloat, even if star Kristen Stewart can't get out of Twilight mode.
Entertainment WeeklyFull Review Poor Overlong, overcrowded, overstimulating and with an over-the-top performance by Charlize Theron as the evil queen Ravenna, the movie is a virtual orchard of toxic excess...
