PLOT from Wikipedia

“Snow White is the princess of Tabor, daughter of King Magnus and Queen Eleanor. After his wife’s death, King Magnus marries the beautiful Ravenna after rescuing her from the Dark Army, an invading force of glass soldiers. Ravenna — who is in fact a powerful sorceress and the Dark Army’s master — kills Magnus on their wedding night after noting that men like him exploit the beauty of women and discard them. As Ravenna seizes control of the kingdom, Duke Hammond escapes the Castle with his son William, but is unable to rescue Snow White who is captured by Ravenna’s brother Finn. Snow White is then locked away in a tower of the Castle.”

Review

Nice movie especially because the plot is different from the original. Good idea to change the point of view of the story, move Snow White from the main character and add others like the Huntsman beside her.

The dark setting help the movie to change the fairy tail in a good movie from all the people (maybe it’s not a movie for childs now 😀 ). Good special effects especially in the dark forest.

Just a few things could be better. Sometimes they accelerate too much the things (sometimes is not a bad thing but..) and some parts are too absurd (ok, the word absurd in this movies sounds strange), for example during the last battle where people turn into the best warrior in few days or something like that.

Anyway, good movie for who is looking for a easy movie.

SPECIAL MENTION fot the girls: Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron are really nice. Charlize is awesome 🙂
