Snow White And The Huntsman: Is It All For Show?

'Snow White and the Huntsman' has received gushing praise ahead of its release on Friday (May 31, 2012), though mainly for its impressive visuals. The actual narrative has taken somewhat of a bashing, leaving critics undecided as to how to actually rate the movie, which stars Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron.

Scott Bowles of USA Today suggested RUPERT SANDERS and his team have done enough to keep viewers interested - despite the patchy story - saying, "Stunningly shot and inconsistently acted and written, Snow White has enough visual fireworks to keep the film afloat, even if star Kristen Stewart can't get out of Twilight mode". Betsy Sharkey's criticism focused on similar themes, writing in the Los Angeles Times, "It is an absolute wonder to watch and creates a warrior princess for the ages. But what this revisionist fairy tale does not give us is a passionate love - its kisses are as chaste as the snow is white". Peter Bradshaw of the UK's Guardian newspaper was a little more direct, noting, "Tangled and overblown".

Nevertheless, box office estimates suggest 'Snow White and the Huntsman' will take control of theaters this weekend, and is likely to take around $45 million. Should that happen, 'Men in Black 3' will be relegated to second position, while the huge grossing 'Avengers' movie will have to settle for third.
