Every time a generation takes a stab and reimagining a classic tale like “Snow White and the Huntsman” there is a secret, underlying plea from those who have gone before: “Please don’t f*** this up.”  With a cast including the multi-faceted Charlize Theron, and a writing bullpen including the likes of Hossein Amini (Drive, Wings of the Dove), you’d think it impossible for director Rupert Sanders to mess this up.

Despite its stunning, but at times mostly heavy-handed visual imagery, what “Snow White and the Huntsman” gets wrong is it’s failure to take any truly big risks – unless you include the casting of Kristen Stewart as an armor-clad Snow White a risk.  Stewart, who learned how to ride a horse and swing a sword for the role is frustratingly not exactly right or wrong, leaving room for some edgy character growth in character for a potential sequel.

I can’t begin to say enough about Theron’s performance, who is so completely in control of her role, I wish she would have factored predominantly more into the film … okay, like all of it, let’s just forget Snow White and make a film about Ravenna.
