QUICK TAKE:
Action/Drama: An orphaned princess must contend not only with her evil stepmother who wants her youth and beauty, but also the huntsman the latter has sent to capture her.
PLOT:
When Snow White (KRISTEN STEWART) was just a girl, her widowed father, the King, rescued Ravenna (CHARLIZE THERON) from a dark army and quickly married her. He was unaware, however, that was her intent all along, and on their wedding night she murdered him and imprisoned Snow White in one of the castle's towers. Now Queen and with her brother, Finn (SAM SPRUELL), as her loyal servant, her rule has turned the kingdom into a desolate place ruled with absolute tyranny.

Vain about her looks and youth, Ravenna often queries her magic mirror about who's the fairest of them all, and thus isn't happy to learn that Snow White has taken her place. But she also learns that if she takes her stepdaughter's heart, she'll have eternal youth and beauty, and thus sends Finn off to retrieve the young woman.

The ever resourceful Snow White, however, manages to escape and rushes off into the Black Forest where Ravenna's witch powers are useless. Accordingly, she orders widowed drunkard The Huntsman (CHRIS HEMSWORTH) to head into the forest, find Snow White, and return her to the castle. He easily captures her, but upon realizing that his deal with the Queen was fake, he fights off Finn and his soldiers and escapes deeper into the woods with Snow White.

With the aid of Snow White's now grown-up childhood friend, William (SAM CLAFLIN), and a number of resourceful dwarves -- Beith (IAN McSHANE), Muir (BOB HOSKINS), Gort (RAY WINSTONE), Nion (NICK FROST), Duir (EDDIE MARSAN), Coll (TOBY JONES), Quert (JOHNNY HARRIS) and Gus (BRIAN GLEESON) -- the two set out to overthrow the Queen and return the Kingdom to its rightful heir.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.
