Finally! I got to see Snow White and The Huntsman… I mean today I took the older girls to see the movie Snow White and The Huntsman. They made me go, I am way to old to want to watch grown up fairy tales. Who wants to watch Snow White be transformed from a delicate flower to a kick-butt woman? Okay I do.
I love it when princesses kick some bottom…and are brunettes!
So how did this movie do on a scale of 1-5? I give it a solid 3. It was fun, had great special effects and the twists to the old tale were a lot of fun.
Meg and Mita are twelve and don’t get grossed out easily or scared silly with things, so the movie was great for them. Not in a million years would Enu be ready for it though, and I really would caution against taking younger kids. The other Snow White movie was great for Elle and Enu and we all enjoyed that one as well.
Here’s something I loved…no love scenes! There started to be one, but it was pretty tame and ended quickly…very refreashing that a PG-13 Movie doesn’t get all sexed up. It was pretty violent though, and had quite a bit of blood to it as well but like I said if your kiddos are okay with fantasy and sci-fi they should be good.
Of course the timeless tale is about beauty both skin deep and within. Purity and innocence wins out in the end as it should and it was nice to see Snow White be such a fighter. Snow White is played by
bella I mean Kristen Stewart. She did a good job, as her character was to be stoic, serious and reflective. This Snow White was rough and tough, but had that magical quality that we know Snow White to have and Stewart did pretty good with it. I did have a hard time not seeing her as Bella from Twilight fame though. At one point Snow if injured and laying on the ground writhing and all I could think of was that’s what Bella looked like when James bit her! I guess my imagination isn’t that great!
Charlize Theron nailed the evil queen! She was very enjoyable and very evil. The evil queen played by Julia Roberts earlier in the year was also good at being bad, but there was an air of comedy with her as that movie was lighter. Theron was spooky evil.
If you are looking for an action movie, meets fairy tale, meets a bit of a love story Snow White and The Huntsman is a good one to see! No one asked me to review this movie. I’m just participating in NoBloPoMo and saw a movie today ;)
