REEL DEAL: Snow White and the Huntsman REVIEW

Skin white as snow, lips red as blood, hair black as night, bring me you heart... my dear... dear... Snow White.

Mirror mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all...

These are the lines that people recognize and know belongs to the well loved fairy tale now brought to a different light with Snow White and the Huntsman. Kristen Stewart (Twilight), Chis Hemsworth (Thor, Avengers) and Charlize Theron leads the cast as Snow White, Huntsman, and Queen Ravena respectively.

And even with new take of the story, the key elements are still there like the magic mirror, dwarves, and the poison apple. This is similar to the latest Alice in Wonderland who is also the producer for this film. It is also not all evil with the queen but also shows the journey on how she became the queen with the mirror. 

Kristen Stewart makes a break away from her twilight image and also impressive with her action scenes, also Chris Hemsworth weilding axes and knives instead of a hammer. 

Snow White and the Huntsman may be the darker narration of the beloved fairy tale that has been interpreted countless times and so far this has been the best one that explains the story with a twist in the plot.

Snow White and the Huntsman is distributed by Solar Entertainment Corporation and United International Pictures. Showing in Theaters June 1 .

Deliberation time kids! 

Show summary in 3 lines: Ravens versus Life

Technical Effects: 4 out of 5 stars (great eye candy effects and also great cinematography that makes you feel the action without showing gore)

Plot: 4 out of 5 stars (There is still that million dollar question that left me hangging and it felt good!)
Acting and Actors: 4 out of 5 stars  (Charlize Theron and Kristen Stewart were really good here) 

DVD worthiness: 4 out of 5 stars (hope it includes the magic mirror)
Music and Soundtracks:  3 out for 5 stars (no major artists here but just ample to set the mood)
Sequel Worthiness: Yay!
Overall: Rating 4 out of 5 stars (It may be compared to the other snow white  films but this one has given a deeper twist and more justified plot)
