Critics Love Kristen Stewart's New Movie 'Snow White And The Huntsman'

Wed, May 30, 2012 12:21pm EDT by 7 Comments

Early reviewers are praising Kristen’s new ‘SWATH’ film! They think she’s a ‘delight!’

We love seeing Kristen Stewart dressed up as a butt-kicking princess in all of her Snow White and the Huntsman pictures and some reviewers that have already seen the movie are liking it as well! The critics appreciate the new “feminist” take on Snow White and have a lot to say about the fairy tale that displays a princess taking matters into her own hands.

Here’s a roundup of Snow White reviews, including a lot of praise for Kristen’s costars Charlize Theron and Chris Hemsworth:

NY Mag:
“It’s also strongly influenced by a lot of smart, feminist thinking about why Snow White has so much staying power—and why the story is better when it’s the heroine who slays the monstrous matriarch. [...] Kristen Stewart is not an obvious choice for Snow White, given her habitual expression of discomfort while striking conventional feminine poses—both in movies and on red carpets. That’s why, of course, she’s right for this Snow White, imprisoned in a tower during puberty and with no regard for her looks: She has integrity, inner beauty.”

Time Out NY:

“A too-bustling prologue shows how Queen Ravenna (Charlize Theron, camping it up) usurped power, poisoned the land and imprisoned her stepdaughter rival, Snow White (Kristen Stewart, a delight). But then the film finds surer footing and proceeds with a deliberateness rare in a big-budget franchise starter; you can sense the hand of coscreenwriter Hossein Amini (Drive) in the story’s always involving, slow-build structure.”

WhatCulture:

“Snow White, is of course, innocence at its most pure and literally beautiful, but what really impresses is the transformation of the source text from one which seems anachronistic in light of feminism – waiting for a man to save the day – into one of proactive escape from one’s oppressors. The seemingly delicate fairytale figurehead is repositioned as a gusty leader of men [...] with Stewart’s intensity making up for her waifish, presumably inoffensive frame. Spelled out in less expository terms than a fairytale intended for easy digestion by children, the story takes on a new form, which adults as well as tweens will appreciate. [...] More The Dark Knight than Twilight, this is one fairytale update that packs an impressive punch and a deft, human touch.”

Today Online:
“It is Theron’s crazed performance as the wicked Queen Ravenna with her psychologically fractured past and evil present that spellbinds and scene-steals. She may be playing an over-the-top psycho but no one can say she isn’t committed to the role. The Oscar-winner’s performance is enhanced by the juxtaposition of the inherent darkness and her obvious beauty, along with the wonderful costuming and impressive CGI effects.”

EntertainmentWise:

“This is certainly a grittier take on the legend, but director Rupert Sanders (making his feature debut) makes sure to mix in enough ‘Lord of The Rings’ type fantasy to make this an interesting prospect, including magical stags and enchanted forests. The story is interesting enough to sustain you over a two hour running time, and little touches like the very impressive techniques employed to portray veteran actors such as Ray Winstone and Bob Hoskins as dwarves make it look a lot different to what one expects.”

I personally could care less that it was Kristen Stewart particularly that was cast as Snow White,  but when someone takes on a role I expect it to be done right. I hate to say it but the truth is that she was the only noticeable character that did a horrible job portraying her role. Snow white is pure life and innocence? Oh, let me act all stupified and confused, that will make people believe I’m full of goodness. Oh yeah, I’m so full of life that I’m going to become the new warrior princess. Yup and it’s true because I lightly slashed a total of 3 men in the movie, I totally deserve to be called a warrior. Oh and let me add a couple of weird sounds at the end of my words for the fun of it. Oh wait, that’s my sad attempt at a british accent. The only belivable part was when the troll refused to attack her after he got one look at her. Can you blame it? He probably figured Stewart was a potential mate for him.

What are you talking about. Kristen was awful!!!!! She had a wooden face, no good dialogue, and poor acting ability. It would have been better if they picked a no name actor than Kristen Stewart. This movie belongs to Charlize Theron for her great acting and beauty.
