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 traditional 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 byĀ Rupert Sanders. Screenplay: Evan Daugherty, John Lee Hancock, Hossein Amini. 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 McShaneā€¦ Bob Hoskins, Eddie Marsan, 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 byĀ The Huntsman: Winter’s War (2016).Ā 

Razzie: Worst Actress (Stewart).
