THE HUNTS­MAN: WIN­TER’S WAR

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS | FILM - TB

Di­rected by Cedric Ni­co­las-Troyan. Star­ring Chris Hemsworth, Jes­sica Chas­tain, Char­l­ize Theron, Emily Blunt, Nick Frost, Rob Bry­don Snow White re­turns. Oh no she doesn’t. Kris­ten Ste­wart has van­ished from the dire se­quel to rather off-topic pre­quel to Snow White and the Hunts­man. Even if the film worked – and it re­ally doesn’t – its ex­is­tence surely rep­re­sents one of the daftest stu­dio mis­cal­cu­la­tions of all time: with­out Snow White and with­out Ste­wart’s fan­base, they have ap­prox­i­mately noth­ing to work with. The bizarrely strong cast sol­diers on, but they can’t make sense of the hay­wire plot. 12A cert, gen re­lease, 113 min
