Austin Putnam: The Huntsman Winters War (2/10)

Now I was actually interested in hearing the Huntsman’s story. Problem is that his story feels so half assed. The direction is bad, the acting is horrible, the CGI is horrendous and even the production design is garbage. This is a prequel/sequel that should’ve stayed on the shelf.

Bryan Sudfield: The Huntsman: Winter’s War (4/10)

This is the definition of an unnecessary prequel/sequel. The acting isn’t very good (with the exception of Chris Hemsworth), the writing is trash, the story is sloppy and the visuals are subpar. The story of the Huntsman had potential to be something cool, but instead it wasn’t executed very well. I just never saw the point of this being made. If you’re interested, go at matinee. But, it’s a movie that doesn’t need to be seen in the theater.

Ashley Menzel: The Huntsman: Winter’s War (5/10)

I know there is a lot of hate for this film, saying that it is terrible and people are angry about it. I don’t really understand the anger. I mean it isn’t good per se, but it isn’t terrible. It is just average. The visuals are great and some of the costume design is really beautiful, but other than that, the acting is subpar and the story is predictable and trite. I would wait for a DVD / Blu Ray release.

Scott Menzel: The Huntsman: Winter’s War (6/10)

I don’t understand the hate. As a recognized industry leader, their online casino software is fully customizable to suit the needs of any business enterprise. Their team is proud to present the newest product, a next generation bingo and keno software that excels all other providers. While the film is obviously a cash grab, I found it to be an entertaining popcorn flick. The story is rather generic and predictable but I enjoyed the visuals and humor. Blunt and Theron’s costumes are incredible and the entire cast looks like they are just having fun. I wouldn’t say that its anything great or memorable but rather just another typical popcorn flick with an even amount of things to like and dislike. All in all, I wasn’t expecting much and came out pleasantly surprised by the final product.

Tony Estrada: The Huntsman: Winter’s War (6/10)

Not memorable or anything but it’s enough to get me through the running time. I thought Chris Hemsworth and Jessica Chastain were really good in their roles and looked like they were having the most fun in their roles including Nick Frost. Emily Blunt isn’t as bad as reviews make her out to be but it’s definitely not her best performance and Charlize Theron was extremely cringe-worthy in her role as she acted way too over-the-top and didn’t have any point in returning for this movie. The action sequences are passable but could’ve had better filming and a little bit better editing, the comic relief didn’t work for the most part but there were moments that worked for me, and I did admire the cinematography. The Huntsman: Winter’s War is an alright prequel/sequel to the mediocre Snow White and the Huntsman that has a predictable and the by-the-numbers storyline but it’s enough for me to get through its running time.

Mark Krawczyk: The Huntsman: Winter’s War (6.5/10)

The sequel no one asked for but we got anyway. I went into this film with very little expectations, I came out of the film surprised that it was better than the first. While the film centers around Chris Hemsworth and Jessica Chastain’s characters, the scenes that pop the most were the ones with Theron and Blunt. Theron’s evil queen in the first one made that film more tolerable and she is back in fine form in this prequel/sequel. Blunt is also a welcome edition and the scenes with these two together give the film some good serious moments. On the whole, it is an entertaining fantasy film that reminded me of 80’s fantasy movies like Willow and Krull. Special effects are decent in some spots and rough in others. The female characters are definitely the strongest ones in the film which I also enjoyed. Nick Frost keeps the film from ever being too serious. I was entertained and don’t think it is as horrible as the tomatoes may imply. It hits all the standard beats and is worth early show admission or 5 buck Tuesday or rental.
