Surprisingly good. It's a fantastic movie that perfectly combines elements of fantasy and fairy tale-esque influences. Visually, it's completely stunning. Charlize Theron and Chris Hemsworth rock their role. The only let down was Kristen Stewart. She just did not embody Snow White as she's often aloof and doesn't come across believable. I don't quite understand the casting of Snow White but there's plenty of actresses who would've done a better job. Mind you, I never did think she was talented as an actress. I expected the worst, but got surprised. It has flaws but I do love a fairy tale. Unfortunately Stewart is a bit of a thorn in my eye concerning this role. Snow White is my fave fairy tale and she didn't do it justice. What I loved is the fact that we see a princess fighting in armor, as opposed to the stereotypical damsell in distress.
Liked it: Visually very beautiful, nice effects, Charlize Theron is way more beautiful than Snow White :) love her!
Hemsworth is good as well. Thankfully I watched the movie at a time when I liked Kristen Stewart a lot, but now I would probably be on the evil queen's side if I watched it again ;)
I actually enjoyed this movie a lot more than I was expecting, but I felt let down by the ending. There was a lot of build-up and growth between characters that the film failed to deliver on in the end. I'd say it's definitely worth renting.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
