Snow White is the only person in the land fairer than the evil queen who is out to destroy her. But what the wicked ruler never imagined is that the young woman threatening her reign has been training in the art of war with a huntsman who was dispatched to kill her.

This action packed film is a good movie. I am into movies with fighting and action and this movie had it. I actually hate Snow White as a Disney princess, like what's with the stupid cone? But in this movie they showed Snow White as a fighter and liked that a lot. So if you're looking for a movie filled with action, violence scary moments and dark magic watch Snow White & the Huntsman.
This movie dragged like almost no movie I've ever seen before. I can't stand Kristen Stewart, but I like Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron, and the effects/cinematography looked like they might be good from the previews. But I wound up pretty disappointed. It seemed like they were just trying to cram in every CGI stereotype from every similar movie that had come before. The attempts at providing back story to the characters (complete with random Christian reference for Snow White??) were sort of ridiculous. Kristen Stewart was her usual boring, helpless self. Best thing about this was Chris Hemsworth's Scottish accent. That's it.
With all of the many adaptations of this story around, I was glad to see that this one put a different spin on the familiar tale. I liked how Snow White was portrayed as more of a fighter than an innocent damsel in a red and blue dress. I thought this movie was really good.
