Snow White And The Huntsman (2012)

Directed by: Rupert Sanders
Country: USA

Plot: In a twist to the fairy tale, the Huntsman ordered to take Snow White into the woods to be killed winds up becoming her protector and mentor in a quest to vanquish the Evil Queen.
Review: This was a difficult movie to rate. It showed positive things, despite of some evident fragilities. Regardless of the “Hollywoodesc” approach and its obvious commercial concerns to impress through fantastic imagery, it still putted some emotion in it. Charlize Theron was simply amazing in Queen Ravenna’s role and her mirror was a very original creation. This completely loose version of the German tale, made popular by the Grimm brothers, was not so bad after all and even without making wonders, was able to provide some amusement.
