Movie Review: Huntsman: Winter’s War


The Huntsman Winter's War (2)_movie ticket by HitokirihoshiI didn’t plan to watch The Huntsman: Winter’s War, but I did because of Emily Blunt, her character Queen Freya and Charlize Theron.  I used to see warrior ladies in cinemas like Elektra (Jennifer Garner), Tomb Raider (Angelina Jolie), Kate Beckinsale (Underworld), and Jennifer Lawrence (Hunger Games)- but not evil magical queens.  In fact, I watched Snow White and the Huntsman because Kristen Stewart became rebellious princess.

Frozen Blunt’s Freya

Hindi ko napanood ang Let it Go este Frozen, but medyo familiar ako sa story dahil sa pamangkin ko. Kaya naman isa sa ideya na naisip ko ay parang halaw sa Frozen. Pero siempre, ang ano naman kung talagang ganun nga.  May na-miss akong part sa movie dahil na-late ako ng pasok pe generally ang cold nga ni Freya.  Motherly ang approach n’ya sa mga tauhan niya pero parang walang empathy sa kanilang damdamin.  Siguro nandoon yung sagot sa 10 minutong na-miss ko pero sa mga minutong napanood ko hindi ko mahagilap yung lalim. Kasama na roon yung sense of loyalty ni Eric (Chris Hemsworth) na bumuwelta na lang sa  mga last part ng movie.

Medyo nagugustuhan ko lately si Blunt siguro out of watching talk shows like programs of Graham Norton and Jimmy Kimmel. I like her accent, wittiness, and beauty. Nakilala ko siya sa Devil Wears Prada pero nito ko na lang siya napansin nang bongga. As for her portrayal, she did it right (if not so well) and believable ang pagiging ice queen n’ya. She’s perfect for the role, perhaps yung character lang ay hind ganun ka-establish unlike kay Ravenna (Theron).  Unti lang ang exposure ni Charlize dito pero lakas pa rin ng dating.

Thor as the Huntsman

Buti hindi nagsasawa si Hemsworth sa paghawak ng hammer, charr!  Sa angle niya feeling ko natawid yung pagbabalik-tanaw at yung karugtong na natulungan niya na si Snow White.  But I think Hemsworth and Stewart has chemistry kaysa kay Jessica Chastain. Pero   nagampanan naman nila ang kanilang mga roles especially yung mga stunts or action scenes.  Wala akong mapiling sobrang stunning maliban sa iyong nakita nila yung Mirror for the first time at tumawid sila sa hanging bridge.

The Winter’s War

As woman  who like watching warrior princess, kay Chastain lang ako naka-rely. Tapos bitin pa, pero  ang talagang ini-expect ko ay matinding showdown nina Freya at Ravenna. Hindi naman bitin yung part na yun pero mas gusto ko sana mas mahaba pa. Ang masaya sa part sa showdown ay yung colors (gold and black versus white and blue) and saka yung wardrobe. Queen na queen ang dalawa sa paningin ko.

Hindi rin makuha masyado bakit Winter War maliban sa mala Winter ang weather yung panahon dahil kay Freya.  Oh iyon na talaga iyonn at nag-set lang ako mataas na expectation sa Winter War. Yung sina Eric versus Freya ganung effect or Eric and Freya against Ravenna from the mid part.

Anyway, The Huntsman: Winter’s War is entertaining naman. My lesson is don’t be late.
