Dramatic adult version of Snow White
on February 24, 2013
All told, this is an excellent movie. It is definitely a dramatic and very intense version of Snow White. Definitely not for children.
The acting was intense, as the entire movie is a dark tale. Brad Pitt and Charlize Theron do an exceptional job acting out their roles. The non-romanticized version, showing all the mud, muck and dirt of the times a few centuries back - was well done.
The only real issue with the movie (reason it was not a 5 star), was the scene where Snow White leads a battalion to overtake the castle. An ill-thought out plan, that ultimately overtakes a well fortified castle - seemed extra-ordinarily naive and wishful. This type of wide-eyed optimism just did not seem in place or suitable in this dramatic recount of Snow White.
Otherwise, very enjoyable as a mature, dark version of an old favourite tale. Definitely worthy of a Friday night timeslot!
