The Huntsman: Winter’s War (2016) 3.5 out of 5 Chris Hemsworth and Jessica Chastain actually look really good together. I’ve yet to see Jessica Chastain act in any fantasy films before so that was pretty refreshing. Emily Blunt played Freya. I am not entirely sure how Freya was written, how Emily Blunt was supposed to play the character, but she really did bring some heart and at times, vulnerability to the ice queen. I’m very sure that is really hard to pull off for an actor. Charlize Theron can do no wrong in my eyes and did a stellar performance in the brief scenes she had in the film. The effects, character wardrobe, set locations and film soundtrack definitely deserve a strong mention too. Chris Hemsworth? He plays hero roles very well, so no surprise he played the charming, strong and delightfully witty Eric effortlessly. I am still waiting however for him to play a much different sort of role in future. That would definitely be a movie I’d make a point to watch. A movie that wouldn’t need green screens or cgi or any weapons. Yes, a weaponless Chris Hemsworth movie. The Huntsman: Winter’s War is a feel good, very sweet adventure themed family movie. All the strong basics of a good movie. With emphasis on good. Not great.
