Charlize Theron, Chris Hemsworth, Bob Hoskins and several others make this a film worth going to see, but don’t spend extra money or stand in line for hours, unless you are a die-hard Kristen Stewart (from Twilight) fan. If you’re just crazy over “Bella” in Twilight, then you’ll like this movie too. It seems to me that Ms. Stewart must be addicted to using BOTOX on her face, because she only has one expression which is on her face at all times…. that tragic look that made her so popular in Twilight. That look that says, “You hurt me, and I’m not sure I’ll recover before our next scene, but I’ll try.”
When she has out-screamed a troll, and is staring this ugly, hideous, gigantic monster directly in his toothy mouth, you’d swear she’s looking into the eyes of Jacob or Edward. When she is privileged to see this great white creature that looks like a cow-goat-sheep-horse creature with huge tree branches growing out of its head instead of antlers, she has the same tragic “Oh, I want you to fuck me!” look she has in Twilight all the time.
Charlize as the wicked witch is masterfully played with excellent makeup effects taking her back and forth from being breathtakingly beautiful to old and haggard and then back to beauty again as soon as she consumes some sweet young girl’s life-force. Bob Hoskins is one of the 8 dwarves in the story, until Gus is killed, sadly leaving only 7… Imagine that!
I felt like the back story of the evil queen could have been better developed. The only thing you find out about her is that her mother gave her unending beauty and powers but not why she is such a bitch. There are other things that aren’t explained, such as how Snow White can be an expert equestrian, riding the albino white horse that just happened to be waiting for her as she was escaping, after spending her entire life locked in the tower of the castle. Or why the kiss of the Duke’s son failed to wake her after biting the apple, but the kiss of the Huntsman did even though he had no nobility. And why are the dwarfs not named Sleepy, Grumpy, Sneezy, etc. I think the 8th dwarf should’ve been named HORNY instead of GUS.
Only the performances of Chris Hemsworth (Thor) and Charlize Theron gives the movie any redemption and makes it worth seeing. Oh and be on the lookout for the HAIRY SNAKE and the mossy tortoise, and the pixie fairies! They are the best fairies I think I’ve ever seen in a movie. If you watch this 5 minutes extended preview, you can decide if you want to go see it or not. This is pretty much all of the highlights of the movie, in 5 minutes.
