Boring, Unnecessary Sequel Throws Away All Potential

In short, this film was messy, boring and didn’t even have a reason to be made (except of course money). The actors seemed disinterested and the film as a whole is an underwhelming snoozefest.

Good Snow White spinoff is ok for teens!

This movie is really good and even though it's not the best movie it's still enjoyable if you try to have fun with it. Pretty much constant violence. Intense scenes including weapons like axes and bows are used one character dies but ends up being alive but there temporary death scene is pretty bloody. Not much blood but some scenes can get bloody and theres a really high body count. Some passionate kissing one scene involves shirtless kissing between Eric and Sara but nothing too bad. Mild profanity includes ass piss and one bitch (I think). One scene takes place in a bar. So overall The Huntsman: Winter's War is a very good movie with lots of violence but good messages about true love and I recommend this movie for mature tweens and teens!

Universal Pictures, Universal Pictures, in Hollywood, What have you done?

Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who has been guilty of this defeat? This "The Huntsman: Winter's War" Review contains some spoilers. If you have not seen "The Huntsman: Winter's War" film, please, do not read, this could destroy it. Four years ago, "Snow White and the Huntsman" generated reviews positive and hopes in probable projects with the tint and tone of this, by modifying the Disney classic by a story filled with darkness, blood and fantasy. "The Huntsman: Winter's War" was released on April 22 as a prequel partial, partial sequel or spin-off of the film 2012. "Before Snow White story" is the label given to begin the story. Keeping in mind references to Harry Potter, the film has forgotten a requirement essential for this type of tales, its length. Understandable is that the audience would not accept a duration three hours or a sequel more, then they had to resort to form the foundations of the story and the origin of their characters in a way short, synthetic and truthful, trick failed since the film feels loose. Well evidenced by the "Harry Potter" or "Lord of the Rings", to do quality things you need time. Around 114 minutes the movie feels dull and incomplete, only lit by the few memorable action scenes, the emergence of Charlize Theron, Jessica Chastain and Emily Blunt and its extravagant and unique costumes and scenery. Just like a grotesque dwarf, there is something cute and good inside. Many necessary elements are present but are not sufficiently enlightened enough to be seen with the greatness that should be. Well-established scenes and subtle choreographies are not projected so majestic and cautious because of the consequences of the lack of time, hurry and anxiety of capturing everything regarding to story does not achieve to be exciting and much less interesting. I think one of the major problems of the sequel was, not add in cameo manner or a secondary role to the soul of the story "Kristen Stewart" (Snow White in "Snow White and the Huntsman"), omitting the small flashback in the film. The first part is to propose and introduce the origins of the ancient (or new, in this context) characters and introduce the new faces of the acclaimed fairy tale. Opening scenes focus in the Queen Revenna (Charlize Theron) narrating how she killed her husband to steal his throne, and then, for reasons revealed in the end, Revenna decides to break heart of her younger sister, Freya (Emily Blunt) the Ice Queen of the North. Also, they give us answers of how the hunter became in hunter and reveal to Sarah (Jessica Chastain) his love. The evil queen, Revenna takes the throne of the kingdom and attacks her sister, the story begins. Due to disorders and traumas, Freya decides to recruit children to train them and convert them in her warriors. Would give them food, lodging and training free with a single condition: in her kingdom, words love and family are gone. As pass the years, Sara and Eric create a relationship which finish in fatalism. Seven years later, Eric run into with Sara and decide to focus on a perilous adventure in order to find the legendary mirror and take revenge against Freya, discovering important secrets... Closing with the phrase "but not all fairy tales are perfect ",referring to the story of snow white. In addition to the imposing costumes, the most cool is its cast. Charlize Theron, Emily Blunt, and Jessica Chastain have accumulated 20 nominations (all together) at various prestigious film awards. Despite the memorable work done on this movie, I think that the list won't increase. Charlize Theron manages to provide an incredible interpretation, transmiting dread, loathing, and a bit of fear. In spite of she's the Queen of the ice, Emily Blunt shows much warmth and strength in her character, Jessica Chastain gives us entertainment. On the contrary, Hemsworth seems that it has stopped all his potential in "Thor". Maybe, it was the script, pressure, or something else, but when Chris outlined a line of dialogue I felt that was watching a Mexican soap opera with dictions taken from Shakespeare, likewise I valued the effort with his role, in addition he was the main actor!. As if it were an adaptation of a romantic novel, "Winter's War" wait to catch to the public youth, mostly women, who want to see a bad romantic movie. Unlike other films, this manages to convey some interest to see it, because it shows in its TV spots or trailers the most exciting of the film, good strategy. I think that a sequel was necessary but with a totally different way. "The Huntsman: Winter's War" is not a bad idea, bad is the way in which they decided to infuse it through a horrible script and an intermittent development. Clear example: not all the fairy tales end with a "perfect ending".
