Snow White and the Huntsman

When Princess Snow White (Kristen Stewart) escapes from the prison cell where her now dead father’s wicked wife (Charlize Theron) put her, the new queen sends a troubled huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) out to catch her. The old fairy tale gets a makeover (released the same year as another version, Mirror Mirror) that should send audiences away with a yearning for Disney. This preposterous take has its visually attractive moments, but they drown in relentless darkness, militaristic nonsense and Theron’s (admittedly amusing) overacting.

2012-U.S. 127 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed by Rupert Sanders. Song: “Breath of Life” (performed by Florence + The Machine). Cast: Kristen Stewart (Snow White), Charlize Theron (Ravenna), Chris Hemsworth (The Huntsman), Sam Claflin, Sam Spruell, Ian McShane… Bob Hoskins, Ray Winstone, Toby Jones.

Trivia: Angelina Jolie and Winona Ryder were allegedly considered for the role of Ravenna; Viggo Mortensen as the Huntsman. Hoskins’s last film. Followed by The Huntsman: Winter’s War (2016). 

Razzie: Worst Actress (Stewart).
