Freya the Ice Queen (Emily Blunt) brings her sister Ravenna (Charlize Theron) back to life, and the powerful evil siblings plan to conquer the Enchanted Forest. Only the Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) and his secret lover Sara (Jessica Chastain) can stop them in this sequel continuing the inventive twist on the Snow White fable.

Went to see Thor Chris Hemsworth The Huntsman with my husband and 15 year old daughter. It was an entertaining movie with things that were done right and things that were not done right, and that is going to hurt my heart to say but I'll get to that later.

What I loved. Anytime Freya (Emily Blunt) and Ravenna (Charlize Theron) were on the screen I was captivated. I loved the way they played their characters and their story. The costumes and hair styles were beautiful. I have a girl crush on Charlize...
What I didn't like was *sob* Chris Hemsworth's character. I know, right?! He looked great, don't get me wrong, but his character was kind of a derp. The whole tone of the movie should have been much darker and The Huntsman along with his merry band of dwarves were used for some comic relief, but it fell flat for me. And watching The Huntsman climb up an enormous shear cliff, in the snow, up to the ICE castle, bare handed, and he didn't break a're gonna have to give him the red cape and hammer to get me to believe that!

My husband and daughter gave it a hesitant 4, but I'm gonna go with a 3.5 and that half is because...girl crush! This is one you can wait for the DVD. But if you can catch it at a discount at the theater, it's always nice to see special effects on a big screen.

3.5 "True love" Sheep



  1. I went to see this in theaters too but kind of wish I waited for the DVD. It was okay, the plot wasn't great. Definitely not what I was expecting. Who would've thought that this was going to be a prequel and sequel lol. That was different.
