Review: Snow white and the huntsman

Borrowed from trailers.apple.com

In the epic action-adventure Snow White and the Huntsman, Kristen Stewart (Twilight) plays the only person in the land fairer than the evil queen (Oscar(r) winner Charlize Theron) out to destroy 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 (Chris Hemsworth, Thor) dispatched to kill her. Sam Claflin (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) joins the cast as the prince long enchanted by Snow White's beauty and power. The breathtaking new vision of the legendary tale is from Joe Roth, the producer of Alice in Wonderland, producer Sam Mercer (The Sixth Sense) and acclaimed commercial director and state-of-the-art visualist Rupert Sanders.

My Opinion:

I've been looking forward to this movie for almost a year cause it sounded different that what the Disney version is, however the joy of seeing this movie quickly disappeared as the movie progressed. 
The first thing I noticed is the way they filmed the movie, it was shakey and out of focus... I know the out of focus thing can be used as an effect, but it just didn't work.
The acting was... well not that good. I did not believe Kristen Steward in the role as snow white. Charlize Theron was okay but throughout the movie I kept thinking wow her throat must have been hurting from all that screaming haha :D. 
Chris Hemsworth actually did his performance really well, plus he is easy on the eyes so that doesen't hurt from a girls point of view.
Throughout the movie I had a hard time keeping my concentration, and just generally disappointed - maybe my hopes was too high.
Keep in mind that this is just my opinion, and that we are all different :)
I would not recommend spending the money on this movie unless it comes on sale when it comes out on dvd  

What are your thoughts on the movie?

I hope you guys are having a great weekend

  4. I liked this movie, but not as much as I thought I would. I agree with you about the acting....but visually I thought it was quite nice!

  5. I can't believe they casted Kristen Stewart in that movie. She's like... one of the worst actors in my opinion O_o. Yet... I'm intrigued to watch it anyway.
