A Fierce Take On a Classic Fairytale

Rupert Sanders’s “Snow White and the Huntsman” came out this past Friday, June 1, and had already proved to be a hit. The movie is based on a German fairy tale by the Grimm Brothers, but also mirrors Disney’s animated classic- “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” (1937). It features three main characters: Snow White, played by Kristen Stewart, queen Ravenna played by Charlize Theron, and the Huntsman portrayed by Chris Hemsworth.
In regards to the plot, the movie is in many ways similar and follows the events that happen in the Disney version. What really makes the movie worth seeing are the action-packed scenes and thrilling imagery. The cinematography and special effects caused that the film was pleasurable to watch. The actors also were well chosen for their roles- especially Theron who was extremely captivating in the role of the evil queen.
If you like action, great effects, breathtaking imagery this is a movie for you. It is interesting to see Disney’s tale being portrayed in such a different, bold way. “Snow White and the Huntsman” is definitely a violent yet delightful film that will suit anyone who admires the combination of fantasy and action.
