Aside from success at the box office, there was nothing about 2012's rather uneven fantasy Snow White and the Huntsman that screamed out for a sequel. And indeed, this prequel/sequel hybrid doesn't quite make sense, muddling its premise by straining to keep Snow White herself out of the story (she's always just off screen) while spinning a tale that feels so derivative that we feel like we've seen it all before. The powerhouse cast does what it can, aided by some fabulous costumes, but it's impossible to escape the feeling that there's nothing to it.
Decades before her encounter with Snow White, Queen Ravenna (Charlize Theron) was just beginning her violent march toward power when her sister Freya (Emily Blunt) suffered a terrible tragedy. Believing that love itself betrayed her, Freya moves to another kingdom and inflicts a frozen winter on her subjects, raiding the surrounding lands for children she will raise to fight, with love between them forbidden. When her two top fighters, Eric and Sara (Chris Hemsworth and Jessica Chastain), can't help but fall for each other, they are severely punished. Years later, after Eric's adventure with Ravenna and Snow White, he sets out to get rid of Ravenna's pesky magic mirror, accompanied by four frisky dwarfs (Nick Frost, Rob Brydon, Sheridan Smith and Alexandra Roach). And this puts them all on a collision course with the icy Freya.
The script feels like it was written by a committee desperate to get something, anything on-screen. The first half of the film is essentially the backstory, and the second half is a Hobbit-style quest with moments of random Game of Thrones-style action thrown in simply to give the special effects team a workout. This isn't too surprising considering that the movie is the directing debut of effects expert Cedric Nicolas-Troyan. So if it makes little logical sense, at least it looks achingly cool, especially when the duelling divas are clad in spectacular frocks by Colleen Atwood.

Mirror Mirror on the wall, who's the fairest of them all?' is a line from a fairy-tale echoed down the ages but not many know the story behind the famous fairy-tale and how one mothers love for her child unleashed a wrath which drastically changed the land.
Freya, the Ice Queen flees her homeland and takes to a cold winter land where she raises a group of hardened soldiers, the huntsmen remain by her side for many years and they are her protectors; the only command issued to the fighters is that they must not love.
As Freya learns of her demise, she decides that she will resurrect her sister with the help of the magic mirror, usually found at the side of her sister, evil Queen Ravenna. As Freya dispatches her army to capture the mirror two of her former huntsman decide that they must destroy the mirror as its power is too great for any person to harness. The fate of the Kingdom relies on the true huntsman.
