Snow White and the Huntsman is a fantasy film that was released in 2012. The movie is based on the fairy tale Snow White. However the movie is an altered version of the fairy tale and is actually a bit of an action adventure film as well. The movie was directed by Rupert Sanders and written by Even Daugherty, John Lee Hancock and Hossein Amini. Another thing to note is that this is Bob Hoskins’ last movie as he is now retiring from acting. As far as the plot and storyline goes, the movie begins as Snow White is born and immediately appointed as the heiress to the throne currently held by King Magnus and Queen Eleanor. Snow White is their daughter as a result. One day the Dark Army invades the kingdom and threatens it. However, King Magnus’ forces defeat them and he rescues a very beautiful woman known as Ravenna. Since Magnus’ wife is dead he decides to marry Ravenna. However on their wedding night she kills him and takes over the throne. Shortly after she takes over the throne, Ravenna decides to capture Snow White and lock her up in the north tower of the castle since she is a threat to Ravenna. During her reign, Ravenna she rules with absolute authority and regularly sucks the life out of people to maintain her youthful appearance. After consulting with the mirror on the wall, she learns that in order to preserve her youth and maintain her rule she must kill Snow White. Ravenna then orders her to be brought to her but the plan fails as Snow White escapes into the wilderness. The Huntsman is ordered by the Queen to capture her. However he believes that Ravenna will betray him so he helps Snow White learn how to fight and eventually eliminate Ravenna. Eventually Snow White returns to the castle and defeats Ravenna. In the end she takes over the kingdom and peace is restored. The movie Snow White and the Huntsman got average reviews among some critics. They believed that some key aspects of the movie were mediocre and could have been better such as the acting and the script. However some of the more renowned critics believed that the movie was very good and brought a whole new exciting theme to the movie. With its pacing, action sequences and dark tone, the movie was regarded as a very solid one. It was also quite popular among the audience and viewers believed that it was a fine movie in its own right.
