The Huntsman: Winter’s War

For all the star power involved, The Huntsman never really comes to life

Here we have a muddled, financially mandated, committee-designed prequel/sequel (to the only marginally better Snow White and the Huntsman), kind of an adult, angrier version of Frozen.

Featured are three talented, committed actresses (Charlize Theron, Jessica Chastain & Emily Blunt), none of whom going unwasted, doing campy things and reciting bad dialogue (but looking great in Colleen Atwood’s meticulously detailed costumes)

.A superfluous and frequently incomprehensible Chris Hemsworth stands around looking handsome. For all the star power involved, this one never really comes to life. Japanese title: Snow White: Koori no Oukoku(114 min)
