Movie was okay Kristen Stewart as snow white fell flat. I kept.waiting on real emotions from her and got none. The final fight and ending were lame. It looked as if the story was building up to this big speech were snow white claimed her throne and thanked her subjects. Then nothing.

People who say that Kristen Stewart isn't a good actress, clearly don't know a teeny tiny bit about talent! Her talent is so very unique, not like all these others mainstream wannabe actresses!

@PG: "Kristen Stewart was amazing."

Seriously?!

It's not a "Potter vs Twilight" thing. It's a talent thing. But people like you who care more about silly fads than meaningful art are exactly why an embarrassingly awful actress like Stewart was cast opposite an Academy Award winner. The movie makers knew the Stewart fan club would pay to see their film. End of story.

This movie could have been much better if Kristen Stewart was a better actress. Simple as that. Charleze Theron was absolutely amazing, along with everyone else. The whole film was filled with sparadic sentimental scenes ment to develop the characters but mostly consisted of Stewart's blank stares. All of this led up to a sub-par battle and false hopes of an epic speech from Stewart in the end.

One of the worst movies in recent memory much thanks to Stewart. Her blank stare wooden acting drags this movie and what brilliant performances are here down. Blank stare with tilt of head=concern; blank stare with mouth slightly opened=shock; blankstare with slight squint=sadness...

You get the point. A strong work ethic means nothing if you dont have the talent to back it. Watching kristen try to rally a kingdom is one of te more embarassing things to see on film.

Only redeeming factor here is Theron who could have easily made this a one note character but gives depth and subtext to a tragic queen. Chris does a great job as huntsman with lots of depth and motivation.

The dwarves and all other characters are one note. We know nothing of the dwarves indicidually. Forced comic relief. Bob hopkins delivery is unintentionally laughable. Story is so cliched and bland in grand scheme of things. Snow white runs from queen, get help. Comes back to dethrone queen.

Emma Watson as Snow White is laughable. She has NEVER carried a major film or any film on her own. Sounds like a bit of a Potter v Twilight hating going on. Kristen Stewart was amazing and the film is an A-!

Firstly, the critics concern was her accent, why? It was beyond me considering her leading man for the past 4 years was British and her boyfriend but I digress. She nailed it.

Secondly, every distinguished British actor in the film i.e. the dwarves from Bob Hoskins, to Ray Winstone to Johnny Harris all of them have been IMPRESSED with Kristen. They have done nothing but praised her work in every interview they have given. You need only go to YouTube. If these men are so impressed with her and her work ethic, who is anyone else to judge? They know.

Thirdly, the film was beautifully made. The cinematography rivals any Oscar winning film. The costumes were outstanding. Definite Oscar nod for the special effects as well.

Fourthly, the cast was incredible. The relationship between Charlize Theron's & Sam Spruell's characters set the tone for the film from the start. Spruell was amazing henchman. Chris Hemsworth showed a range of different levels to his character which made the ending even more sweeter. Kristen showed a range as well being compassionate, strong, beautiful, sensitive, loving, and more. Snow White did not need to speak because her actions showed everything. She was the one and Kristen conveyed it in every frame.

Lastly, the director hit every note. The scale and beauty of the film was amazing!

This was first class all the way. The cast, the crew the filmmakers...everyone. This will become a cult classic...wait and see.

Loved it. I've seen it 7 times and every time I've gone, the audience was filled with as many guys as there were females. It crosses audiences nicely. Cannot wait for the sequel!!

I'm surprised there's only one comment. I thought the movie was pretty decent, I personally would of given it a B- for the reason that it really drags at parts and I felt they should of recasted Snow White. Kristen Stewart just didn't stand out I felt Emma Watson would of been more fit but Charlize Theron dominated. It's still an very fun movie.

Not being a professional movie critic, I really enjoyed the movie Snow White/Huntsman. The cinematography and scenery were fantastic; the costumes fabulous - especially Snow White's and the Queen's. The fairy tale forrest with its' cute bunnies, birds, white deer,and scary monster fascinating and surreal(reminiscent of Avatar). The characters: Snow White (Kristen Stewart's appearance,voice and accent lovely (when she spoke). The writers should have given her more dialogue; a chance to champion the theme of good overcomes evil. The Huntsman's (Chris Hemsworth)fighting abilities were admirable - and understated romance with Snow White believable.
The Evil Queen (Charlize Theron) with her CGI wizardry was quite a spectacle. The Prince's archery skills were on target.
