Snow White and The Huntsman Review.

Something to remember if you are thinking about taking kids to see this movie, IT ISN'T WALT DISNEY'S SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARFS!!!! I am not saying don't take kids, but I would sit and talk to them before going, it could be a little scary for younger kids.

Once upon a time, there was a man who played Thor and a girl who played the one who loved a vampire. Many of the movie goers online were worried how this would work, but the great Director Rupert Sanders brought joy to the little film villiage.

Now with Kristen Stewart as Snow White, she brought the film to life. She played the brave Snow White well. She was strong and scared at the same time and she really made us believe. (Many may think she is just that girl from "Twilight" but that isn't the case. She is one of the best actresses I have seen. She will be in this business for years to come.)

Now the Queen wanted Snow White dead, for this is a fact. She needed someone to get her, she needed the Huntsman. Chris Hemsworth was the choice. He is always on the royal Box Office board. Last month he was Thor, who carried a hammer. This time he was the Huntsman, who carried an Axe. The one thing we learned other then he is a great actor, is that he must always swing something like a hammer. (I am huge fan of Chris in Thor and The Avengers. I think he did a fantastic job in this movie as well)

Now who to play the Queen? Charlize Theron is the perfect person. She played the Evil Queen and gave us a great take on the story. I watched this actress before when she co-star with the Prince of Bel-Air Will Smith, in the movie Hancock. She brought all the moods of the Queen to life, making us wonder what her next move would be every time. She could switch from normal talking voice to yelling without the viewers being ready for it, so it adding a jumping shock to the film. She really brought great power to the role of the Evil Queen.

Now in every Snow White story, there is a group of people who are helpful to Snow White. They are the Dwarfs, this cast of actors had a lot of great names in movie history. First playing the wise Dwarf Muir, the great Bob Hoskins. I have been a fan of Mr. Hoskins for a long time, I have seen him play Eddie many times in the movie "Who Framed Rodger Rabbit".  This isn't his first time in a story book themed movie, as he played Smee in the Peter Pan movie "Hook". He played Smee for a second time in the TV Mini-Series "Neverland". I think what made his role in this movie good was the fact you could see his role as Smee in his role as Muir.

The second Dwarf was Beith played by Ian McShane, the last time I saw him was in The Pirates of The Carribean: On Stranger Tides (Fun fact: Sam Claflin who plays William, was also in Pirates). McShane really plays the rough but at the same time nice Beith well. I think his look is a main reason he makes a good choice for this. I think his voice is another main reason, it really has that tone that fits Beith in the story.

Next there was Toby Jones, who plays Coll. Now Toby Jones was once in another fairy tale based movie, "Ever After: A Cinderella Story" with Drew Barymore. Now he was also in a movie with a man in red, white and blue. Jones played Dr. Arnim Zola in "Captain America: The First Avenger". Jones was another who I think brought his past roles into this movie. He also plays more of a shy person in some roles, which I think is another reason he is good in this film.

The whole cast was great and I would like to talk about each. But at last we must speak of the special effects. The effects were great, but there was one little issue. The birds that were with Snow White, seem to not be 100% done. They didn't seem like the full detail of their body was there, such as the detail of their wings. It didn't mess up the movie, it just could have used a little more detail.

Over all the movie was grand and I would say to all you online town people, make your way to your local Theater and see this film.
