“Snow White and the Huntsman” is an edgy and stylish take on the Brothers Grimm fairy tale.

Synopsis: In the epic action-adventure Snow White and the Huntsman, Kristen Stewart plays the only person in the land fairer than the evil queen (Charlize Theron) 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 (Chris Hemsworth) dispatched to kill her. Sam Claflin joins the cast as the prince long enchanted by Snow White’s beauty and power. –Universal Pictures
The Positive: “Snow White and the Huntsman” trumped the previously shown Snow White movie “Mirror Mirror” with regards to costumes, makeup, production design, musical score and special effects. Charlize Theron’s performance lingers.
The Negative: Kristen Stewart’s “monotone” acting will remind you of the “Twilight” movies. The film’s dark take on the Grimm’s fairy tale, on the other hand, will remind you of “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy. What I did not like is that the screenplay set aside the tale’s romantic angle.
STARMOMETER SCORE: 7.5/10
