As a war for domination escalates between the two queens, the hero standing between good and evil is Freya’s most elite Huntsman, Eric (Chris Hemsworth: Thor, Star Trek Into Darkness). Alongside fellow warrior Sara (Jessica Chastain: The Martian, The Help) — the only woman who has ever captured his heart — Eric must help Freya vanquish her sister or Ravenna’s wickedness will rule for eternity.

Box Office Democracy: “The Huntsman: Winter’s War”

26 April 2016 4:00 PM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

In my first year of reviewing movies I ranked Snow White and the Huntsman as the ninth worst movie of 2012 and by that time news had come out that neither star Kristen Stewart nor director Rupert Shane would be returning for the sequel, and I predicted that it would probably be a better movie. I was right, The Huntsman: Winter’s War is a better movie, and it still isn’t a very good movie.   Freed from trying to retell a more famous story, there are some interesting choices made in the script— but it’s all overwhelmed by the crushing clichés of high fantasy. At its lowest points Huntsman is the slickest Lord of the Rings fan-film you’ve ever seen; at its highest it’s a kind of cute romantic comedy starring Nick Frost.

Movie Review – The Huntsman: Winter’s War (2016)

22 April 2016 8:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Huntsman: Winter’s War, 2016.

Directed by Cedric Nicolas-Troyan.

Starring Chris Hemsworth, Jessica Chastain, Emily Blunt, Nick Frost, Rob Brydon, Sheridan Smith, Alexandra Roach, Sam Claflin, Charlize Theron, and Liam Neeson.

Synopsis:

As two evil sisters prepare to conquer the land, two renegades Eric the Huntsman, who previously aided Snow White in defeating Ravenna, and his forbidden lover Sara set out to stop them.

How do you make a Snow White movie without Snow White? The answer is you probably shouldn’t, but The Huntsman: Winter’s War exists anyway. It’s a franchise that shouldn’t even be a franchise considering Kristen Stewart opted not to return for what would become a narrative disaster of a prequel/sequel. Universal simply should have put their time, effort, and money into something else once she declined, because there was likely no way this movie was ever going to work. Don’t »

Film Review: 'The Huntsman: Winter's War'

20 April 2016 9:00 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The Bottom Line (1 minute review)

Let’s get this prequel/sequel stuff out of the way. “The Huntsman: Winter’s War” is both a prequel and a sequel to the 2012 “Snow White and the Huntsman.” It gets confusing if you try to figure it out, so you are better off not thinking about it and just enjoy the movie. And there’s a lot to enjoy.

The acting is uniformly strong, the production value is excellent from the visual effects to the costumes to the cinematography. Despite the somewhat confusing timeline, the story is mostly creative with a few surprises that actually move the story forward while also justifying characters’ choices that may seem unusual.

The “prequel” part of the movie begins with Huntsman Eric (Chris Hemsworth) and fellow Huntsperson Sara (Jessica Chastain) as children who are abducted by the recently evil Queen Freya (Emily Blunt) and endure a “Hunger Games” like training montage. »

The Huntsman: Winter’s War review – an insipid confection

10 April 2016 12:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Despite a fine performance from Emily Blunt, the follow-up to Snow White and the Huntsman offers cold comfort

Here’s the follow-up to 2012’s SFX whimsy-cake Snow White and the Huntsman, bookending that film’s narrative with both a backstory and a continuation – which makes it, I suppose, a “sprequel”. Emily Blunt emerges with honour, offering more nuance than the film deserves, as Freya, tragic sister to Charlize Theron’s wicked witch queen. Turning her back on love, Freya repairs to the northern wastes to rule a land of snow and ice, and presumably to lie low in case Disney’s lawyers question the resemblance to Frozen. Playing squeeze to Chris Hemsworth’s Huntsman, Jessica Chastain dons a leather jerkin and wields a bow and arrow – solemnly channelling a touch of Red Sonja, for you older sword-and-sorcery fans. There are many offensive things about this insipid confection, foremost among them the fact that Nick Frost, »

The Huntsman: Winter’s War movie review: snow what?

7 April 2016 2:46 PM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

It’s a prequel and a sequel! It’s got girl powerrr and lady-hating! It’s a mashup of Lord of the Rings and Frozen! It’s all these things, and less. I’m “biast” (pro): love the cast

I’m “biast” (con): wasn’t crazy about the first film

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

It’s a prequel and a sequel! It’s full of girl powerrr and reflexive lady-hating! It’s a parody mashup of Lord of the Rings with Frozen and it’s a longform conceptual fashion shoot! The Huntsman: Winter’s War is all these things, and more, and sometimes less. It’s a story about the horror of child soldiers without the horror. It’s a love-conquers-all story with almost no genuine emotional content at all. It’s a comedy without any actual humor. It’s a movie in which, »

Movie Review – The Huntsman: Winter’s War (2016)

The Huntsman: Winter’s War, 2016.

Directed by Cedric Nicolas-Troyan

Starring Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron, Emily Blunt, Nick Frost, Rob Brydon, Sheridan Smith, Alexandra Roach, Sam Claflin and Jessica Chastain.

Synopsis:

When is a sequel not a sequel? Well, when it’s a prequel of course. And when is a prequel not a prequel? A sequel. Right? Such confusing things are not uncommon in Hollywood these days where the words mentioned above, as well as the unrelenting desire to create universes, are as commonplace as they ever have been. In the case of The Huntsman: Winter’s War, it has the supreme distinction (and in equal measure confusion) of being both a prequel, a sequel and lest we forgot potential universe builder. »
