Snow White and the Huntsman (2012)

dir. Rupert Sanders

This movie was just a mistake. The attempt to turn something as basic as the Snow White fairy tale into a dark and gritty epic was never going to work. Some of the cinematography and framing make a decent start, with the world visually portrayed as pretty complex and intriguing – but it’s let down by script that renders each character just as simple and straightforward as their fairy tale counterpart. Charlize Theron and Chris Hemsworth do their absolute best to work with it, but at the end of the day, Kristen Stewart frowning and sulking for two hours does not the fairest of them all make. Altogether, this film thinks of itself as much more than it truly is.
