What do we think?
Following the massive success of Snow White and the Huntsman, the second movie in the franchise continues to reinvent a familiar fairy tale with an imaginative twist.
This film boasts a very impressive cast with more Hollywood A-listers than you can shake an enchanted stick at. Emily Blunt and Charlize Theron spark off each other making a formidable pair, while Chris Hemsworth is perfect as the dashing hero and Jessica Chastain is fierce and feisty. Light relief comes in the form of funny Brits Nick Frost, Rob Brydon and Sheridan Smith.
Visually The Huntsman: Winter’s War is stunning, conjuring a world of enchanted forests and icy wintry wonderlands. But this is no fluffy fairy tale, there’s plenty of action and furious fight sequences.
Buckle up for an action-packed fantasy adventure with bags of energy, terrific villains and sword-wielding heroics.
