huntsman-winters-war

Starring: Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron, Emily Blunt, Jessica Chastain, Colin Morgan, Sam Claflin, Nick Frost

OUR RATING: ★★☆☆☆

Story: Dark fantasy action-adventure directed by Cedric Nicolas-Troyan which is a prequel and sequel from Snow White and the Huntsman based on the characters from the German fairy tale “Snow White” compiled by the Brothers Grimm.

Long before the evil Queen Ravenna (Charlize Theron) was thought vanquished by Snow White’s blade, she watched silently as her sister, Freya (Emily Blunt), suffered a heartbreaking betrayal and fled their kingdom. With Freya’s ability to freeze any enemy, the young ice queen has spent decades in a remote wintry palace raising a legion of deadly huntsmen, including Eric (Chris Hemsworth) and warrior Sara (Jessica Chastain), only to find that her prized two defied her one demand: Forever harden your hearts to love.

When Freya learns of her sister’s demise, she summons her remaining soldiers to bring the Magic Mirror home to the only sorceress left who can harness its power. But once she discovers Ravenna can be resurrected from its golden depths, the wicked sisters threaten this enchanted land with twice the darkest force it’s ever seen. Now, their amassing army shall prove undefeatable, unless the banished huntsmen who broke their queen’s cardinal rule can fight their way back to one another.

Verdict: This is a movie that just wastes it’s talented cast and feels like a completely unecessary sequel/prequel. The story feels forced and sloppy with no real substance, the positive are that there are some great visuals.
