THE HUNTSMAN: WINTER’S WAR (Theatrical Release USA 2016)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì 

The Huntsman: Winter’s War—good, not great—has nice special effects reminiscent of Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings in creative and fresh imagery. The movie recasts Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron, Nick Frost, and Sam Claflin from Snow White and the Huntsman while adding new cast members Rob Brydon, Jessica Chastain, and Emily Blunt. This movie plays along darker lines than Snow White and the Huntsman but it is a good prequel/sequel film to Snow White and the Huntsman with a shocking link between the Snow White story and the Snow Queen story. The film, overall, is a good watch.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Yes. Know that this movie’s story heavily ties with Snow White and the Huntsman (2012 USA/UK Live Action). Many references in this movie, The Huntsman: Winter’s War, to Ravenna, Snow White, the Huntsman, and the Snow Queen will make this film more understandable if one watches Snow White and the Huntsman before tackling this film.
