Snow White and the Huntsman (Sanders, 2012)

Snow White and the Huntsman (Rupert Sanders, 2012)

A soft song of folklore and tragic loss echoes in the background as the fellowship of the princess travel across vast land of beautiful greens, rocky passageways, and peaceful streams. The photography is often times stunning, and even the overly CGI scenes in a magical forest are so over-the-top in their fantasy appearance that I couldn’t help but find myself enjoying the atmosphere. Really, the entire middle portion of the film had what I love about road movies or traveling westerns – the solitude of a small group mixed with the meeting of different sects of people, all different and mostly interesting. The bookends of the film, overall, are much less intriguing and fall victim to shameful plot holes and trite plotlines, keeping this from being some sort of surprise masterpiece. But the middle portion left too strong an impression on me to deny.  7.5/10
