Movie Review: Snow White and the Huntsman (2012)

snow white


This movie is based off the classic fairy tale Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, and stars Kristen Stewart as Snow White, Chris Hemsworth as the huntsman, and Charlize Theron as the evil queen. However, in this version the huntsman who is ordered to kill Snow White ends up becoming her protector.

What I liked

I liked the creativity that went into this film, and enjoyed that it was more of an adult version of the fairly tale. Charlize Theron did an excellent job acting as the evil queen, and it was interesting to see how the unique twist with the huntsman played out throughout the movie.

What I didn’t like

I think this movie was longer than it needed to be. There were times where it was slow and kind of boring. I also thought the dwarves were creepy and weird. I am also not a huge fan of Kristen Stewart in the Snow White role.


This movie received a 6.2/10 on IMDB, a 48% rating from the critics on Rotten Tomatoes, and a 54% rating from the audience.

Overall I think this was a pretty good movie. There were times where it was slow and boring, but I think the plot was creative and put a unique spin on a familiar fairy tale. I will give this movie a 3.5/5.
