Film: Snow White & The Huntsman


A young princess is imprisoned as her evil stepmother takes control of the throne that’s rightfully hers.

Charlize Theron’s performance as the wicked Queen dominates this otherwise lacklustre version of the classic fairy tale while man-of-the-moment Chris Hemsworth (quickly becoming typecast) displays little of the charisma shown in Thor as he attempts to protect Snow White.

All the essential elements of the story are here, the poisoned apple, the seven dwarves and the handsome prince all appear in some shape or form but as amusing as it was to see Bob Hoskins and Ray Winstone as dwarfs this packs little emotional punch.

Ric’s Rating: Dodgy.

  1. Dodgy! Perfect word for the movie. I called it uneven.

  2. I thought it was watchable, yet muddled.
