One Sentence: Don’t worry, she hardly speaks at all.
Release Date: 01-Jun-2012
The first time I saw the preview for this movie, I was excited, there were these glass monsters fighting, Charlize Theron looked amazing and the style was beautiful. Then it cut to Kristen Stewart, and I was saddened. I felt like this movie had gone from something amazing to something horrible in the blink of an eye. I have heard that a lot. How can this movie be good with her as Snow White. Wouldn’t this or that person been a better choice. After seeing the movie, I agree there were better choices, but she does not ruin the movie.
In this very cool twist on the story, Kristen Stewart gets out of the way of Charlize, the awesome dwarfs and the visually wonderful CG. This movie is actually pretty good. A wonderful blend of the original story, dark twists, and characters that work very well. It is a convincing retelling and I actually had a very good time with it. The Snow White true love part wasn’t very fleshed out, or felt awkward. I also don’t think this was Kristen Stewart’s fault, and more the fault of the script for handling it poorly, but for something I thought was going to be awful, it is only a minor complaint.
This isn’t an amazing summer blockbuster, but it is a pretty cool movie. It is totally worth seeing in the theater this weekend. I might not go to the Friday midnight showing for it, but seeing it on Sunday afternoon would be good. If only for Charlize Theron looking amazing and the awesome CG work. Check it out, I don’t think you will be disappointed.
