Kristen Stewart stars Snow White, a royal princess who loses her mother at a young age. When her father realizes she needs a mother, he's tricked into marrying Raveena (Charlize Theron) who poisons him and rids the kingdom of his ruling. Imprisoned Snow White decides to escape just as the Magic Mirror declares her the source of the Evil Queen's immortality. The queen sends her men, led by a local huntsman to bring Snow White back. Meanwhile, Snow White's childhood friend, William (Sam Claflin) learns she is alive and sets off to save her. Upon her capture, the huntsman winds up becoming her protector and mentor in a quest to vanquish the Evil Queen.
Say what you want about the cast, this movie was pulled off pretty well. I skipped this when it hit the theaters, but it was more than worth my $1.50 Redbox rental, and would honestly say it's worth a $5 purchase later on.
