I like what they did to the story. Snow White's story is overused so a different twist would be perfect! Thing is, this isn't perfect. It's just great. No mushy scenes. The first hour of the show kept me going. However, Kirsten didn't give justice to the character. Charlize Theron portrayed the queen malevolently! Chris did good. And I needed to see more of Sam Claflin. Overall, this movie isn't a waste of time at all.
