Only the second time since 1937 that his fairytale has been brought to the big screen, SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN (2012) starring Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth, and Charlize Theron is told in epic-like proportions. Unfortunately the breathtaking sets, the richly layered costumes, and a cast of experienced cinematic actors was still not enough to carry this movie to the
top of the ratings.

First time director Rupert Sanders seemed so concerned with setting up the storyline for a sequel, I found myself a little confused with the unresolved subplots and Snow White's dual love interests.  The name of this movie could have easily been 'Snow White Part 1' with all the deliberate cliff-hangers. Only Charlize Theron's wicked portrayal of Queen Ravenna is worth the price of admission.

I must mention the fairy forest, a CG wonderland of moss covered turtles and bunny riding fairies...a treat for anyone who enjoys a brief glimpse into an ethereal world. No doubt one of the reasons SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN was nominated for two Oscars in minor categories in 2013. PG-13, 127 mins, Action/Adventure/ Drama, 2 stars out of 5.
