My Review: Oh my.. This movie proves how one actor(ess) can ruin a good movie. Kristen Stewart was just not right for this role maybe because she still has her brain wired to the Twilight saga. Even when she ate the poisoned apple, it was a reenactment of when she got her first vampire bite in the first Twilight… Her constipated facial expressions are getting quite tiresome and should only be used in drama-infused, modern day films. How hard is it to put on a British accent, apparently it’s really difficult, ask Kristen (or Chris.. maybe they should have had an all-British cast?).

The movie’s advantages are the technical features, the costumes, the picture, it was all beautifully and creatively done.  Rupert Sanders might have made a mistake on Snow White, but he sure picked the right queen. Best evil queen, hands down, goes to Charlize Theron. After the movie, you pretty much don’t remember anything except for Charlize’s performance, and also wonder why it wasn’t called Queen Ravenna and the Huntsman.

Like Kristen, Chris Hemsworth has a typical style of acting: rough, tough, and funny which we see in a lot of his films. But his style is charming, and that’s why you tend to see past his acting weaknesses.

For a darkened twist on the classic tale by the Brothers Grimm, it was enjoyably sufficient  7/10
