Snow White & The Huntsman

Dear Diary,

When I was a little girl, I read both local and foreign fairy tales. I am familiar with stories of Bawang Putih Bawang Merah, Badang, Sinbad, Aladdin, Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, etc. One of the princess fairy tales is Snow White. I bet most of us know the story very well.

Many months back, I got the chance to catch an adult and more serious version of our childhood Snow White tale. The movie entitled Snow White & The Huntsman, is directed by Rupert Sanders and starred by Kristen Stewart (Snow White), Chris Hemsworth (The Huntsman) and Charlize Theron (Queen Ravenna).

The film possesses the same storyline but with some modern twists. There’s The Queen who hates Snow White and there’s also The Huntsman who was hired by The Queen to kill Snow White. To spice up the story, there’re dwarves, poisoned apple and prince charming too.

As we all already know, The Huntsman didn’t kill Snow White. She lives. BUT she doesn’t just accept whatever life has for her. Snow White fought back instead. The Huntsman who is supposed to be her killer, becomes her mentor. Together, they wage a war against Ravenna.

In my humble opinion, there’re certain parts of the movie that I felt a bit boring and dragging too long. Maybe it’s just me. Well, I don’t really like Kristen Stewart’s way of acting. On the contrary, Charlize Theron plays her role superbly.

I strongly feel that Queen Ravenna (Charlize Theron) is far more beautiful than Snow White (Kristen Stewart).  I fall in love with Chris Hemsworth when he was Thor for the first time, now I fall in love again with him as The Huntsman.

RedRose - Akak bias sikit kot sebab akak tak suka sgt cara Kristen Stewart berlakon. Kalau blh nak cepat je ending tu yg sampai ada rasa boring kot. Overall, filem ni not bad la.
