Freya (Emily Blunt) is heartbroken betrayed by her evil sister Queen Ravenna (Charlize Theron). She retreats to a northern kingdom to raise an army of huntsman as her protector. With Freya’s ability to freeze her enemies in ice, she spends and takes decades and years to raising a throng of deadly huntsman including Eric (Chris Hemsworth) and Sara (Jessica Chastain). Freya teaches her sliders to never fall in love. An angry Queen (Charlize Theron) does whatever she can, to stop them. Since the war between the siblings rises, Eric and Sara unite with Freya to stop Ravenna’s sinful plans.
It was a fun ride with many actions, a pack of humor, and yes a great cast, Chris Hemsworth is the best part of the film. He has brought his usual joyful action hero to the mix, Jessica Chastain is a good addition in the movie as The Huntsman’s wife, and Emily Blunt plays the mesmerizing Ice Queen amazingly well. Charlize Theron is back as the evil Queen Ravenna, and as always, she looks stunning and gorgeous. She is giving a show, a great comic relief, more value to women in fairy tales as heroines. The Dwarfs are a humorous help as always, but mixing some female characters work well. New casting especially the huntsman in the film gained huge attention. Jessica Chastain playing Sara put in an awesome performance as a trained fighter & well in the romantic moments.
The production and the visual are excellent, with a predictable plot and story. Because of its action scenes, this movie deserves 3 stars. The visual effects, the special effects, the costumes, the production, the music, everything in the movie is perfect but the Snow White’s presence was missed.
There are little moments in the film that feel off in the editing part, for example at the start it feels something was going to happen but the scene change in a different direction and some scenes are kind of flat. This movie takes a lot of critic review but it’s a fantasy based on children’s stories so what the hell you guys expect from it. !!
