Universal’s Snow White and the Huntsman hits theaters this weekend. The film stars Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron and Chris Hemsworth. Still, before potential movie goers waste their hard earned cash on movie tickets, salty popcorn, and flat soda – they may want to read what the top movie critics are saying about the film.
The Wrap’s Alonso Duralde said Stewart’s Snow White, “is too reminiscent of her twitchy Twilight character Bella Swann and would have a hard time convincing people to follow her to Forever 21, let alone storm a castle.”
“The screenwriters should have taken a page from the 1997’s film Ever After, in which Drew Barrymore’s Snow actually had a thought in her head and some plausible skill with a sword,” said Jeff Meyers of Metrotimes
Bob Bloom from Jconline coldly says “‘Snow White’s’ biggest drawback is Stewart. She is beautiful in an ethereal manner suggesting that she is the epitome of purity. She looks the part, but the illusion is shattered whenever she opens her mouth.”
Elizabeth Weitzman from the NY Daily News said, “Hemsworth is especially well cast as the would-be prince, a charismatic hero with some intriguingly rough edges. But it’s Theron who owns this film, imbuing her deliciously depraved Queen with furious pain and deep-seated fear.”
The film received 46% on the Rotten Tomato meter from critics, and a 74% score from the audience. Consider yourself informed.
