This review is from: Snow White and the Huntsman (Extended Edition) (DVD)
From my wife Sarah: I see many negative reviews here, but we really liked this movie. Here's why:
- It was simply very entertaining. It had several subtle changes to the Snow White story so that the movie kept us wondering what would happen next. The characters were much more complex than the fairy story, so much more interesting to watch. There was some action mixed with fantasy that made it exciting.
- Actress Charlize Theron was absolutely amazing and her character was well scripted. She brought this movie up to a whole other level. She gave amazing depth to the character of the evil witch, and made her much more than a fairy tale figure.
- It had a positive message ultimately.
This is definitely worth seeing for adults, and I'd probably watch it again. However this is NOT for kids. The story is rather dark, and although not bloody, there's some intense violence and some nudity.
