Excellent

Not sure why some folks are panning this, we all went today at lunch and simply loved it. It has a great balance of realistically layered with obvious fantasy. It is simply STUNNING to look at and the storyline keeps a good pace. In fact I worried at one point and thought "okay this has been so good are we about to unravel", nope, it transitioned from each scene and idea with smoothness. For us, we will see this again. I guess to each his own. And trust me this movie is a H**** of allot better than Men In Black or the simply Horrible "What to do when your expecting", now those are bad movies. Cheers

I wish they'd picked a different Snow White, but it was good..

This was a great movie. The cinematography was beautiful, and the battle scenes were awesome. The cast did a great job, especially Charlize Theron as Ravena. I only have one complaint, Kristen Stewart. She has a great voice and stage presence, but I wish she could make more than one expression. Her stone drama face makes it hard to get emotionally invested in the character, and breaks the illusion of reality. If Kristen Stewart had more than 4 muscles in her face it would have been epic. Still, it was definitely worth seeing. Plus, Florence and the Machine at the end, totally worth rocking out to in the theatre.

EPIC DISASTER

I'll admit--I was really excited for this movie. The trailer looked great, the story sounded cool and I was ready to give Kristen Stewart a pass, but man did SWATH disappoint. It's seriously terrible. At the end of our advance screening there was literally NO ONE clapping, just awful silence. What's wrong with the movie, you ask? For starters, the acting is terrible. The first 15 minutes is surprisingly decent but as soon as Chris Hemsworth shows up, the movie goes south REAL FAST. Stewart and Hemsworth are awkward in nearly every scene (Hemsworth's accent is borderline laughable) and the two display very little to no chemistry whatsoever throughout the film. Charlize Theron is pretty good, I'll admit, but even she can't uphold the crappy storyline and cliche'd dialogue. Plus Theron's over the top delivery is a little annoying (you'll get sick of the screaming, trust me). As for the visuals, it really is impressive, but much like the story, you can't rely on beauty in this world. D+

Beautifully Shot, but the Direction was a Bit Off

Snow White and the Huntsman was stunningly filmed. The story/script was good, acting decent and direction was off. Yet very enjoyable and almost a must go just for the scenery, costumes and cinematography. The fighting scenes sucked. Snow white (Kristen Stewart) is her usual self, not a great actress yet, but interesting enough. Ditto for the Huntsman (the actor who played Thor). Charlize was gorgeous, acted very well for most scenes. I think the director slighted the actors a bit in their monologue scenes by keeping the actors a bit flat or uninteresting. Preteens and above should be able to enjoy this movie.

Wait for DVD

Have to say I was very excited to see it, have been for months even got to the theatre early for the midnight showing. The visuals are great...but the storyline is not well thought out. There is no real connection between any of the characters. I would have loved to see more passion, excitement, love, better acting? Overall it left me very disappointed and sleep deprived.
