| Exciting fast moving feature
The cast is nice , Chris Hemsworth , Charlize Theron , Jessica Chastain and Emily Blunt are all accomplished actors and they did their roles well. The story had an obvious ending and an obvious twist but then that's not what the movie was all about. If you want to watch an action packed fantasy drama with some decent CGI effects and decent acting , well you cant discount this film . I personally found this better than the first one as the first one was tad slower and seemed to drag on a bit perhaps more so because of snow white and her frozen acting . Here the frost queen acted more fluidly . I did enjoy the CGI as well because it was not over used and the colouring of the gold with black in contrast with the ice queens blue and white went really well. In my opinion its definitely worth a watch.

The film was released a month before another film with "war" in the title, "Captain America: Civil War," based on the Marvel comic. Chris Hemsworth plays the Marvel comic hero Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Emily Blunt was the original choice for another Marvel comic hero, Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow, but turned it down and Scarlett Johansson was cast. Chris Hemsworth does not appear as Thor in Captain America: Civil War (2016).


Narrator: What does the mirror show you? What do you see? An oft told tale. That of Snow White, how she vanquished the evil Queen Ravenna and took her rightful place on the throne. But there is another story, one you have not yet seen. One that comes long ...


In the previous film, Queen Ravenna had a very close, somewhat mystical bond with her brother Finn, who was her head enforcer. He is also seen during a flashback to when Ravenna received her magic powers. This film, however, makes absolutely no mention of him in either the scenes set prior to the first film or the ones set afterward. In addition, there is no indication in the first film of Ravenna having any other siblings besides her brother.

Alternate Versions

The Indian release was cut, in order to obtain a UA rating the distributor made reductions to the sex scene between Sara and the Huntsman as well as muting all uses of the term 'bitch' from the film's soundtrack.
