Four years after the dark upgrade tale about Snow White premiered in 2012, comes this unexpected film that expands a bit more the universe that had built its predecessor, away from history classic brothers Grimm and inventing beyond what had already dared esta.El first-French director Cedric Nicolas-Troyan, who had been supervisor of special effects of Snow White and the Huntsman , as in at least four films Gore Verbinski, has replaced Rupert Sanders in front of the new story, and it seems that Universal has proposed giving his first shot in the film novice with this possible saga, since for Sanders was also the original release in the same.
But first what is necessary to clarify the Huntsman: Winter’s War is is not a prequel adventure Snow White rejuvenated as we had been led to believe voluntarily or involuntarily, but a full-fledged sequel . What happens is that the plot of this sequel comes from the past of both the hunter and the evil Queen Ravenna, plot anyway had already pointed in the founding film by insisting on the lived years before the first to justify their behavior about Snow White at various times of footage preceding something he was there, a somber waiting to be unearthed facts, and for them we should have expected this sequel, but it is a strange idea to think about a universe expanded to a classic tale ; though perhaps not so much in a href=”http://hipertextual.com/tag/hollywood” Hollywood quite devoid of ideas, in which the remakes abound, and continuations in general, the reheated dishes, squeezing and exhausts the premises everything you can.
the script has passed from the hands of Evan Daugherty, John Lee Hancock and Hossein Amini , of which highlighted the second only by the libretto of a Perfect World ( Clint Eastwood , 1993) and the last by the Drive (Nicolas Winding Refn, 2011), the Craig Mazin and Evan Spiliotopoulos , the first author of scripts for comedies trash, and the second, which specializes in sequels of animated films Disney , which means less quality, but a logical choice at least in the case of Spiliotopoulos.Pero becomes part of the original cast: Chris Hemsworth as the Huntsman, in a performance much less taciturn and intense; Sam Claflin as indifferent William; comedian Nick Frost as Nion, one of the dwarfs with less charisma; Charlize Theron as Ravenna, in his perverse and href=”http://hipertextual.com/analisis/mad-max-fury-road” magnetic line, but with much less screen time for the role of the competent Emily Blunt as Freya, who joins the cast along with Jessica Chastain as Sara, fulfilling but without raising passions, Rob Brydon as vapid Gryff, Sheridan Smith as sympathetic Mrs. Bromwyn and Alexandra Roach, whom many know for his work on the Utopia (Dennis Kelly, 2013-2014), as the troupe is Doreena. Do not miss Kristen Stewart as Snow White, but, much to the outstanding dwarf, played by the great Bob Hoskins, Ray Winstone and, above all, Ian McShane.
the Huntsman: Winter’s War is entertaining and has a considerably lighter than its predecessor , but it lacks the light touches of little academic virtuosity in the realization that Sanders had given tone to it: is functional in every way , ie, merely to tell the story that an audiovisual want to make it enjoyable and understandable and dispenses entirely with the inventive film. Yes, have three-time Oscar winner Colleen Atwood as costume designer is always a plus for any production, and in this, as in the other, there is no doubt it is.
what they tell us, on the other hand, are more interested in the story of Snow White and sobadísimo , freely adapted in Snow White and the Huntsman ; more calls the whole plot of the two sorceresses and circumstances of the romance of Sarah and the Hunter sisters, but development is woefully shallow and thus the most limited: there are not many cards to play in these realms that run through the characters. And if in the first film, the scene where Snow White sees the Spirit of the Forest as a white deer brings to mind the time when Princess Lilly touches one of the unicorns in Legend ( href=”http://hipertextual.com/2015/08/series-con-mejor-fotografia” Ridley Scott, 1985), the influence of the infamous magic mirror, the only element that holds some surprise, even disturbs us because it reminds us greatly to something as well known as the ring of power in the trilogy of the Lord of the rings (Peter Jackson, 2001-2003), and only really exploit it once, at most unsatisfactory.
There continuity errors in explaining the origin of the magical powers of the sisters , as the Huntsman: Winter’s War differs from the Snow White and the Huntsman ; and also, one wonders, not just where it was Freya in a family flashback of the latter, or Finn’s brother, both in the initial section of the sequel, which corresponds to the past, but how about him as the aforementioned explanation of magical powers in the new film
Nevertheless, be seen because it is constantly aware of its limitations.; not aim too high, it not even pretends to be epic as the original and therefore is not a failed work. It is simply a cartoon to hang out deep into the medieval world of an expanded story, moving between fairies, dwarfs, monsters, skilled warriors and evil hechicería.7En short, with a somewhat more interesting story, a smaller cast, some continuity errors and no pretense truly artistic regardless of the technique, the Huntsman: Winter’s War can perfectly serve as a pastime for a couple of hours, but nothing mejor.- the story a little more interesting. – Again, the magnetic presence of Charlize Theron as Ravenna. – The costume designer Colleen Atwood.- Its strictly functional realization. – Development reduced its plot premise. – Their continuity errors
