A pretty exciting adaptation of Snow White.
9 March 2015 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

This is the German-made movie adaptation of the famous fairytale, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. In addition to following the familiar story-line of the fairytale, it gives more emphasis on the setting, particular the elegant exterior scenes of Germany's Hohenschwangau Castle, where the film's palace is based out of, and the cast of characters. It shows a more chilling chemistry between Snow White and the Evil Queen, especially during the part where the Queen confiscates a necklace from Snow White, given to her by the Prince.

The movie places more emphasis on the huntsman, as you get to see more interaction between him and Snow White before the forest scene and the consequences he endured after letting Snow White go. There are also servant characters in the story and we see them react with fear during scenes of the Queen's wicked deeds.

The acting was particular well-done, but the movie's pacing does go quite slow at times. The plot could have used a little more action, but the added suspense to the fairytale makes this a pretty entertaining film.

Grade B-
