Movie Review: Snow White and the Huntsman

With a known producer Joe Roth (Alice in Wonderland) and Sam Mercer (Sixth Sense) plus a great cast and marketing, I'm sure a lot of audience have put Snow White and the Huntsman in their must watch list.  Is it?  We were so glad to watch it in an advance screening courtesy of Star World Philippines, Surf, STIOishi and Goldilocks.  
The story sets in medieval times where witches, trolls, fairies and kings existed.  The plot is basically the infamous fairy tale of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves with an added twist such as a handsome and hunk huntsman casted by Chris Hemsworth, mixture of familiar sound effects (see if you can recognize some) and more.  Yet I find the mix bag insufficient to sustain my full attention.  I found some of the scenes too dragging and boring.  The movie begins in a narration and in the end becomes an action film similar to Joan of Arc but in short length.

Ravenna starred by Charlize Theron and Finn casted by Sam Spruell were great!  The roles were played well as the duo drew the attention and emotions of the audience.  The huntsman played a weird role in the movie.  Up until the end, I'm still wondering what he was there for.  But, Chris Hemsworth played well especially in the action scenes.  Kristen Stewart as Snow White failed to prove herself as the fairest of the all throughout the movie.

Overall, the movie is watchable but my expectation were clearly not met.  This is just another movie.
Watch Snow White and the Huntsman!
