The Huntsman: Winter’s War|Review

So I’ve been away for a little bit due to having a mountain of uni work! But I thought I’d comeback with something fun; a film review.


I recently went to watch this film as I really enjoyed Snow White and the Huntsman. This film also had the same producer as Maleficent, which I LOVE.

Even though I already had pretty high expectations for this film, it still managed to surprise me! I was really impressed with the narrative as it wasn’t too predictive yet it wasn’t hard to follow at all. I kind of expected it to be a straightforward Disney film – but I was wrong! It was actually really funny, and I didn’t expect the comedy side that it had. There were so many witty one liners and innuendos – so much enjoyment for older viewers!

I was also pretty impressed by the cast members. Of course we knew Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron would be a part of this with it being the prequel to Snow White and the Huntsman. And if they weren’t already fabulous enough (and so easy on the eye), Emily Blunt and Jessica Chastain were cast as the other leading roles. Emily Blunt is in my top 5 favourite actresses because not only is she an amazing actress, but she is such a funny person and seems so genuine. I love her. I was excited to see Jessica Chastain in this film because of her role in Lawless. She was really good in that, and even better in Winter’s War. Better, because she played a kick-ass, strong, independent woman who didn’t need no man! Then came the dwarves; Nick Frost, Rob Brydon and Sheridan Smith – need I say more about the comedy aspect? So hilarious, me and my best friend, Leus, were in stitches.


I also have to mention the wardrobe! Charlize and Emily were obviously dressed in elegant, regal gowns throughout the film as they were the Queens. Charlize rocked her character, Ravenna’s, gold gowns once more and looked flawless. Emily’s character, Freya, was the ice queen who was always dressed in blue and silver gowns and had white hair. She looked beyond beautiful, a real life Elsa. Although the Huntsmen’s outfits were more suitable for battle, they were still made to perfection. I genuinely believe Chris would look gorgeous in anything, so I may be slightly biased.. Jessica looked like the warrior her character, Sara, turned out to be. I kind of wish I’d been in this film.. Even as production cast.. Because everything was done so well – in my opinion anyway.

This film was probably an 8.5/10 for me, because I laughed so much. I will be buying this as soon as it comes out on DVD! Obviously I loved it, and I would recommend anyone to go and see it!
