Weak script but dazzling special effects and Evil Queen save the show
on December 9, 2014
The special effects are dazzling. The Evil Queen changing form, the troll, fairies, a white ram, and the black forest are all enchanting. But, in my opinion the reason why this movie is a 4, not a 5, is not because Kristen Stewart spoiled the show, as she is a beauty who could fit the Snow White role, but the problem is with the script. It is inconsistent throughout the movie, and there are scenes that appear for a few seconds without any discernable purpose. The script has Snow White channeling Margret of Anjou, which is odd for young princess maiden who has been locked away most of her life and is known for her kindness. The Evil Queen, Charlize Theron, gives an over-the-top performance that is truly enjoyable to watch - you almost want her to continue her reign. The Huntsman, is perfectly played as an adorable, take-me-home bad boy that women continually fall for in spite of obvious flaws. And, yes, the seven dwarves were naughty, funny, show stealers.
