Theron's Ravenna is a revelation
- Snow White and the Huntsman review by PT
The wicked queen Ravenna sucks the youth out of young women to maintain her youth. One day though, after asking the mirror who is the fairest of them all (bet nobody guessed she would ask the mirror that) the usual reply of herself is replaced by Snow White. The mirror also informs her that if she gets the heart of Miss White her youth will be permanent.
She sends her brother to bring her Snow White, who she has imprisoned because of her earlier murderous machinations. Snow White escapes to the dark forest, where Ravenna has no power, thus enter the huntsmen, promised a reward by Ravenna to bring her back.
Of course Snow White has an agenda too, to wrestle back the kingdom that is hers by birthright.
Good special effects and enjoyable fairy tale for kids and adults alike. It is Charlie Theron who steals the show though, really turning it on as the wicked Ravenna.
