1.0 out of 5 stars Review by someone who has never seen Twilight., September 15, 2012
By 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Snow White & the Huntsman (Extended Edition) (Amazon Video)
I was hesitant because of all the Kristen Stewart bashing going around these days. I am a big fan of Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron. I mean, on paper this should have been a good movie.

It's not.

The script is disjointed and forced. The plot has so many holes it would give a Humvee problems. Kristen Stewart is actually pretty bad. Very odd expressions and her emotional range is as bad as the internet memes indicate. She delivered a few of her lines fine, but I get the feeling the director gave up about half way through the movie.

Even Charlize and Chris aren't at their best here. Some sparks of brilliance showing through.

The best part of this movie is the 7 dwarves. I wish they had spent more time on these guys and less time on a senseless love triangle that never resolves anyway.

Also, the fantasy elements seem very slapdash. Even a good fantasy system has some rules and some definition. You never really get that here. I mean, I still am not really sure what gives Snow White any ability here to charm a troll? Maybe there was something I missed with the fairies... i fell asleep for about 10 min in the middle.

What is with Kristen Stewart, I mean, every time she seems to be summoning some kind of emotion, she usually just looks like she is passing some really bad gas.

Anyway, if you want to watch Snow White, stick with the animated version, its still the best. If you want to see Charlize, watch 7 Days in the Valley and if you want to see Chris at his best, watch the first 10 min of Star Trek (2009). If you want to see Kristen Stewart, I can't help you, maybe go see an eye doctor or a shrink.

I agree the movie was horribly flawed in the writing, and the seven dwarves were the best part out side of the first little interactins with Theron's character. Good post, nice points made.

How would you know? This review isn't about such a movie.

I agree with you about Stewart but I think its the Twilight series that has stunted her as an actress. I watched a film with her and James Gandolfini and Melissa Leo called Welcome to the Rileys where Stewart is cast as a lost prostitute and she was really quite good. The way she's been cast in Twilight is the way people want to see her I guess but its really harming her image and skills since it asks her to remain very 'contained'. I'll check out 7 Days in the Valley. Thanks for your thoughts.

2 Days in the Valley is kinda esoteric. I just mentioned it because I believe its Therons first US appearance, at least, its the first thing I remember seeing her in.

(yeah, I looked it up, its 2 Days in the Valley, sorry about that, been years since I had even thought about the movie.)

LOL. That's why I couldn't find it. Thanks for the correction. Oh and by the way in the original fairy tale Snow White is enchanted but she doesn't know it, this is why she can charm a troll and nature works in her interest.
