The Huntsman: Winter's War Reviews

  • Jan 02, 2021

    Although the humour seems a bit forced at times, the dialogue occasionally stilted, there are a couple of redeeming qualities in this tale. There is of course, the amazing caste. The spectacular tapestry of special effects and artistry when combined with the indelible motif of the paramount joy of having the ability of love. Really, what else is there?

    I wouldn’t say that winters war is it unwatchable piece of trash. The reviews on this are pretty harsh thinking I’m getting into something unwatchable. Winters war is watchable but it’s nothing very memorable. The plot kind of staggers around and gets lost in the middle of the film and Focuses little bit too much on special effects. The cast is great and it starts off pretty good but it kind of goes downhill from there. If you’re a fan of the cast or a bunch of special effect type movies you’ll enjoy it but the script really could’ve been better.

    I liked this movie. It hasn't any amazing depth to it and Theron isn't in it for very long but it's a bit of escapism fun. I think a better casting idea would have been to give Chastain the role of Ice Queen and Blunt the role of Sara, just personally. Chastain looks like she's regretting ever signing the contract to play the role she's in and would've found more meat to sink her teeth into as the Queen. And Blunt does the doe-eyed lover so well. They should have left out all mention of Snow White, as that sub-plot without Stewart was quite ridiculous. Beautiful costumes, amazing cast, plenty of Hemsworth eye-candy, lots of fun. But just a bit too much sillyness and not enough plot substance to make it a knock out.

    Nowhere near as bad as its reputation. The cast is a lot of fun and the script is at least mixed.

    I thought that it wasn't as good as it's predecessor but it's still worth watching as it is very entertaining.

    A sequel and sorta prequel to Snow White & The Huntsman (2012) this movie goes over in the beginning the story of Eric (Chris Hemsworth) and his beginnings. We also learn about Queen Freya the sister the Ravenna (Charlize Theron). Ravenna learned early on that her sister Freya's future child would be the fairest of them all, so Ravenna being a hater plotted against her which eventually led Freya becoming the Ice Queen (she's basically unearths some hidden powers, so she becomes the chick from Frozen). Freya leaves the kingdom and establishes her own dominance in the north taking kids and training them to become her Hunstmen (and women). This is where Eric comes into play who is brought to the North along with a young lady named Sara (Jessica Chastain). The two train together for years and eventually break their oath to Freya by falling in love and getting married. Well Freya doesn't take it too well (since Eric and Freya decide to leave and start their own life) and ambushes them. Eric escaped and believes Sara to be killed. Eric meanwhile leads into the events of the first movie at this point. 7 years go by and Eric is approached by Snow White's (oddly played by no one in this iteration hmm) husband William (Sam Claflin) tell's Eric that Snow White was being beckoned by the magic mirror, so she had her knights take it and bring it to Sanctuary (the location where she was sheltered in during the first film) to be cast away. Unfortunately, the knights went missing, so William tasks Eric along with Nion (Nick Frost) one of the dwarves from the first movie along with his half brother Gryff (Rob Brydon) to accompany Eric and retrieve the mirror and bring it to Sanctuary. Along the way the little trio uncovers that Sara is indeed alive and that the Ice Queen herself Freya has a nefarious plot that she wishes to unleash on the magical kingdom. Truthfully, the plots kinda all over the place here, but it is cool to get a back story on the Hunstman. Chris Hemsworth plays him well again here and he's definitely the highlight of the film (like he was in the first movie). It's weird that they kinda had to add his back story to this to make you understand the plot, but it makes sense. The film definitely works best if you've seen the previous (like most sequels), but this one literally can be watched, paused to watch the first one and then you can start it back up to probably get the full experience. It features some really great visuals and an all star cast, but it's just the pacing here falls short. It slows down substantially during the middle half and then finally picks up at the end. It almost damn near features too many characters. There are a lot of moments where we kinda just forget about the other characters (aka the dwarves), but hey I would still recommend at least a rent if you enjoyed the first film. Don't come into this one with too much of a hope, but for the most part it was a decent popcorn flick.
