In A Nutshell:
After Revenna (played by Charlize Theron) is made Queen, she kills the King on her wedding night and starts her reign over the kingdom with terror and cruelty. Informed by her magic mirror that Princess Snow White (played by Kristen Stewart) whom had been imprisoned for years will soon take over her as the fairest of them all, Ravenna seeks to eat her step daughter's heart to gain eternal youth. Snow White manages to escape from the castle and runs into the Dark Forrest. A Huntsman (played by Chris Hemsworth) is hired to capture Snow White, but he soon feels a change of heart after learning who she is. Meanwhile the news of Snow White's escape has let her former childhood flame, William (played by Sam Claflin) to search for her too.
+ Impeccable visuals created from magnificent CGI, wonderful cinematography, and great camera work.
+ Charlize Theron creates a sinister villain in the form of Queen Ravenna
- Another needless love triangle for poor old
- The story is at times lethargic and dull with uninspired dialogue
- The climatic scene has nothing special and is pretty understated
Following previous Hollywood traditions such as Deep Impact -Armageddon , A Bug's Life -Antz , The Illusionist -The Prestige , and The Truman Show -EdTV , this movie will be the second Snow White movie to come out in quick succession following the release of Tarsem Singh's Mirror Mirror  a few months back. The trend isn't about to end anytime soon as two movies based on the life of Steve Jobs will be released next year. I don't think its a surprise to anyone that this particular retelling of the classic Brothers Grimm tale is the better one of the two. But better only in comparative terms, because as a standalone feature, it is far from being outstanding.
