By Jaskee Hickman, Remakes are a very common and ordinary aspect of filmmaking in modern-day Hollywood. With that being the case, I can't say that I was surprised at the fact that there was a remake of Snow White coming to the big screen called Snow White and The Huntsman. This one is different from some of the other films based on this story. This one is darker and has more action than the others, but it's also more mature.

With a familiar story, Snow White and The Huntsman has an evil queen (Charlize Theron) who will do anything to keep her power. When it is learned that Snow White (Kristen Stewart) is destined to replace her, she learns of her whereabouts and orders a hunter (Chris Hemsworth) to track her down and prevent it from happening. The huntsman however has plans of his own once he comes to understand who she is and why she is so important.

Snow White and The Huntsman got off to a solid start and stayed that way for a decent amount of time. They took their time building up the story and much of the early stages of the movie keeps the spotlight on the Queen, her rise to power and her continuous fight to stay there. After keeping allowing her to be the center of attention a while, the focus then shifts onto the other characters and their roles in the story.
