The Huntsman: Winter's War

Fantasy Adventure


 

The Huntsman goes in search of the Magic Mirror to prevent it from getting in the hands of ice queen Freya, who seven years prior sabotaged the soldier's romance while under her service.

"The Huntsman: Winter's War" is thoroughly unoriginal, with a story that is easy to foretell. The plot and adventure mirrors many significantly better films that have come before it. While no expense has been spared on the production design, what's really disappointing is that the beauty of the visuals markedly exceed the appeal of the story's cold and uninspiring characters. Fall in love with this fairytale, and you will be heartbroken. This is generic Hollywood "playin'-it-safe, big-cast CGI fodder".
