Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Every resonant theme or intriguing story possibility is stripped away and replaced with a ready-made franchise-movie conceit.
Rotten: The script lifts so much plot from Disney's animated Frozen that it could qualify as a remake. No one sings "Let It Go," but my advice to audiences is to do just that.
Rotten: Nearly every major character dies and comes back to life at least once and a convoluted narrative yields not a single, palpable moment of drama.
Rotten: There would be use for a properly dark Frozen retelling, more in line with the original tale, where the afflicted actually uses her power for malfeasance. But Freya is a snow day late and a dollar short.
DON'T LISTEN TO THE REVIEWS
When I looked up "The Huntsman: Winter's War Reviews" online, immediately I got the idea that this movie would be horrible. 90% of the reviews gave the movie 1 or 2 stars and claimed it was terrible, or "everything wrong with Hollywood packed into a little less than two hours." But I'm a stubborn person, and decided I would see for myself if the movie was as drastically horrible as the reviews made it out to be. I'm glad I walked into that movie theater. Sure, it is far from the best movie ever, but it was interesting and held my attention. I laughed a few times throughout, and there are quite a few, "F*ck yeah!" moments as well. Blunt, Theron and Chastain were perfect for their roles. This movie was a wonderful blend of comedy, romance, action and fantasy. I would definitely recommend it.
Nothing like the previews!
Boring! The two queens played a tiny (boring) part in the movie. This seems to be a common thread nowadays with movies amping us up by way of previews only to show us loooong scenes with a lot of nothing to fill-in the time.
Better without K-Stew
She brought the entire first movie down because they made her the main character and she didn't deliver her performance. Now this, the spotlight is on more talented actresses and they really shines. Charlize Theron is true QUEEN!
