Chris Hemsworth is smooth as ever in this
Snow White and the Huntsman
spin-off, but that means taking away some of the edge that Kristen Stewart brought to that film. It's left to Jessica Chastain and Emily Blunt to deliver it as a fellow warrior and Ice Queen, respectively. Charlize Theron also returns as the fabulously evil Ravenna, this time in a smaller role alongside Blunt, the sister who loses a child, becomes an ice queen and raises an army. Hemsworth and Chastain are its leaders until they fall in love, incurring her chilly wrath in events that lead up to the previous film. Director Cedric Nicolas-Troyan leads us on a slightly uneven ramble through enchanted woods before cutting to seven years after Snow White has dethroned Ravenna and everyone is looking for that magic mirror. Stewart's absence (following the scandal of her affair with previous director Rupert Sanders) leaves a gaping hole in the plot and Nicolas-Troyan needs to paper over the cracks. Fortunately, he's a master of visual effects (Oscar-nominated for the first film) and again produces a cool, glittering spectacle. He lightens the gloom further with comic turns by Rob Brydon, Nick Frost and Sheridan Smith as dwarfs and inserts slickly edited fight scenes whenever the pace flags. This is no classic, but an amusing twist on the original fairy tale.
Eric and fellow warrior Sara, raised as members of ice Queen Freya's army, try to conceal their forbidden love as they fight to survive the wicked intentions of both Freya and her sister Ravenna. However, as war between the siblings escalates, Eric and Sara unite with Freya in an attempt to end Ravenna's wicked reign once and for all. Fantasy adventure, starring Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron, Emily Blunt and Jessica Chastain.
