Snow White (Kristen Stewart) is the daughter of King Magnus (Noah Huntley) whose kingdom is thriving until he is enchanted by the beauty of a woman named Ravenna (Charlize Theron) not knowing that she is the one who creates a fleet of phantom army as a bait to lure him and his army. Once back at the castle, King Magnus marries Ravenna and makes her his queen at once. Queen Ravenna uses her witch power to immobilize Magnus before stabbing him to death and brings her own army to conquer the castle. In the process, she locks up Snow White for many years until one day she learns from her Magic Mirror that she will be overthrown by Snow White, who will not only surpass her as the “fairest of them all”, but will also be her only salvation by consuming her heart to achieve immportality.

However, Snow White manages to escape into the Dark Forest, a place where the evil Queen’s power renders useless. Therefore, a Huntsman named Eric (Chris Hemsworth) is summoned to kill the Princess. However, when Eric learns that Snow White is a helpless damsel in distress, he decides to stand up and fight against the Queen and her army. Snow White, joined by her childhood friend Prince William, several dwarves and Duke Hammond’s (Vincent Regan) army marches towards the castle in an attempt to kill her stepmother Queen Ravenna and takes back the kingdom.

Despite being a strong adaption, the film has already failed at casting level by casting a pale Snow White in Kristen Stewart. The film is not only a pale drama with minimal action but it started on the wrong foot when even the magic mirror could not tell between fair and pale, thinking Kristen Stewart’s Snow White is the “fairest of them all”. Charlize Theron’s beauty is certainly of no comparison with Kristen Stewart’s anesthetized look. She does not have the glowing beauty of Snow White and certainly does not look like she could give life back to the dead land.

Overall, Snow White and the Huntsman is rather a disappointing representation of the highly popular fairy tale. With an unnecessarily length of storytelling and minimal actions, the film fairs miserably. In the end, the film is certainly not the fairest of them all compares to other films this summer.

  • 5 out of 10
  • A mediocre film which has little thrills but tons of excessive drama

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 (2011) – Movie Review

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 is the first part of the final installment of The Twilight Saga film series with Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner all reprising their roles.

SPOILER WARNING: Plot and/or ending details follow.

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn also known as Breaking Dawn focuses mainly on Bella Swan’s (Kristen Stewart) marriage to Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson). While the wedding is grand and lavish, it is easily overdone. Ensuing the wedding, the couple then spends their honeymoon on Isle Esme in Brazil. Bella and Edward have sex and before long, Bella finds out she is pregnant.

When Sam Uley (Chaske Spencer), the Alpha of the werewolf pack learns of Bella’s pregnancy, he plans to kill Bella along with the unborn baby. Despite that, Sam and the other werewolves have no balls to launch an attack.

Eventually, Bella becomes too weak as the unborn baby overpowers her, taking all the nutrition from her body and becomes the main cause of Bella’s death.

To summarize it, first part of Breaking Dawn is all about the wedding, honeymoon, pregnancy and birth of a vampire baby and is literally boring.

In the end of part one, as expected, Bella heals, wakes up with red eyes depicting she has turned into a vampire.

Overall, Breaking Dawn Part 1 has weak storyline, full of drama and corniness and completely toothless. Certainly one of the worst, if not the worst Twilight film to date.

  • 5 out of 10
  • Breaking Dawn Part 1 is melodramatic and toothless with little to no action. Watch it if you love soap opera.
  • Yes. The Volturi clan learns of Bella’s newborn baby and when Aro (Michael Sheen) says the Cullens still have something he wants, he could possibly mean Renesmee.
