Summary

Betrayed by her sister (Theron), Freya (Blunt) retreats to another kingdom to raise an army of huntsmen and tells them never to fall in love. When Eric (Hemsworth) and Sara (Chastain), who are in Freya’s army, defy this rule Freya stops at nothing to end them.

Is The Plot Interesting?

The Huntsman: Winter’s War answered all the questions I had from Snow White And The Huntsman. We also got to see The Huntsman’s wife and how he acts around her which I found fun to watch.

Is The Acting Good?

The cast delivers good performances but none that will stay in your mind for a long time. I was a bit disappointed at how long Charlize Theron was in the movie, appearing only in the beginning and the end, but other than that I was quite happy.

Is The Directing Good?

I feel like the director, Cedric Nicolas-Troyan, influenced every part of the movie from the outfits to the sets. And this goes in Cedric Nicolas-Troyan’s favour and works for the most part.

Is The Cinematography Good?

The cinematography matches with the mood of the movie. I think the movie is sort of dark and mysterious and the cinematography supports this idea and adds to it rather than taking away.

Is It Worth Watching?

If you liked the first one then sure it’s worth a watch but don’t bother if you didn’t like it. It brings the same ideas forward as Snow White And The Huntsman and tells us what happened after that story ended.

3/5

We blind ourselves to the truth because we are weak, because we hope. But there’s no hope for love. Love ends in betrayal. Aye and always.
