review

I had seen Snow White And The Huntsman and loved it for the awesome scenery and costume design. Once again, The Huntsman does not disappoint in this area. Even the idea of using character development to create a new story is so original and enjoyable entertainment.

I’ll admit the story was a little confusing for me, as I kept forgetting this was pre-Snow White. Still in the end I think the story has a glitch in it which precludes the foregone conclusion of Snow White…maybe not…can’t think about it too much.

Love this movie!
