Trivia

Chris Hemsworth, who plays the Huntsman, is also famous for playing the Norse god Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Emily Blunt's character is named Freya, which is also the name of a Norse goddess. Freya is associated with love, magic and death. According to legend, she was married to the god Od, who vanished one day. Freya searched the entire world to find him, gaining a new name in every land she passed through, but unable to find him again. The brokenhearted goddess cried tears, which became gold, and her experience made her particularly sympathetic to lovers. See more »

Young Sara has a face full of freckles. Older Sara does not (as Jessica Chastain has a clean face). Freckles can fade with time, especially in a land with little sun. See more »

Wasn't sure I would enjoy this but pleasantly surprised!
5 April 2016 | by See all my reviews

I loved this film. I had to go to accompany my child and didn't think I would enjoy it but I was very pleasantly surprised. I actually hadn't seen the first film, so was able to go in without preconceived ideas, which probably helped. I was wary as the cinema was empty so I assumed it had had bad reviews, which was keeping people away. I actually really enjoyed the whole thing from start to finish. A good story, not too long or short, great visual impact and what is not to like about Chris Hemsworth - (never heard of him until now). Robust acting from Emily Blunt and Charlize Theron, held this film together nicely. I also loved the dwarf characters, who added some welcome humour to the film too. I would recommend this film if you want to spend a couple of enjoyable hours at the movies with your child.
