Pretty much everyone knows the childhood fairy tale commonly known as "Snow White & the 7 dwarves." You would expect "Snow White and Huntsman" to be an exact copy of the previous versions of the fairy tale, but this is far from that. I found "Snowman and the Huntsman" to be more of a mature revamp, than a carbon copy, that is more suited adults than younger audiences. The Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) is hired by the evil witch, Revenna (Charlize Theron) to kill Snow White (Kristen Stewart), who is the fairest of them all. The plan doesn't go according to plan and Revenna is out to finish the job. I thought it was an interesting movie, but it did have some flaws. 

I thought the music was epic, sounded great, and it was very fitting to the feel of the movie. The picture quality was very sharp and the visual were unique, elaborate, and very impressive. I thought the casting was perfect for each of the characters, except for Kristen Stewart as Snow White. She was too depressing to look at and too emo for what I expect from Snow White. However, Chris Hemworth was perfect as the Huntsman and Charlize Thereon played the ruthless and mean queen flawlessly. Lastly, I loved the plot and the whole concept they went with, but there some parts of the movie that moved too slowly and some scenes that could have been left out. 

This movie was good, but could have been a lot better. I still enjoyed a majority of the movie and liked the scenes without Snow White a lot more. Hopefully they recast Snow White with someone a bit more lively or does not look like they havent slept for two weeks. The action was good, but some scenes that were drawn out could have been shortened or left altogether. The other elements of the movie were good and I do recommending checking this movie out regardless. For those reasons, I am giving this movie a "B-."
