SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN
Directed by RUPERT SANDERS
Starring CHARLIZE THERON, KRISTEN STEWART, and CHRIS HEMSWORTH
Once upon a time there was a classic tale with good actors, stunning visuals, a terrible script, and an inexperienced director. Out of this mythical mixture came Snow White and the Huntsman. The latter two ingredients spoil the batch. Similar to most bad movies, the writer and the director should bear the brunt of the blame, but this film may also be a victim of its own marketing. The promoters of Snow White and the Huntsman pumped excessively high expectations and millions of dollars into television spots, trailers, snippets, and images. Perhaps the marketers promised more than first-time director Rupert Sanders could deliver.
