QUICK TAKE:
Fantasy Action/Drama: A huntsman tries to find Snow White's missing magic mirror before an evil ice queen gets her hands on it.
PLOT:
Once upon a time, an evil queen, Ravenna (CHARLIZE THERON) ruled the lands, helped and guided by a magic mirror. Her sister, Freya (EMILY BLUNT), had no special powers like her sibling. But that all changed when the father of her child killed their baby, causing Freya to transform into the Ice Queen, kill that man, and then begin her reign of terror.

Beyond killing others to control her part of the world, that also included taking in the orphaned children of those she had killed, and training them to become future warriors for her army. The only rule was that love was forbidden, something that two of her now young adult soldiers, Eric (CHRIS HEMSWORTH), and Sara (JESSICA CHASTAIN), eventually broke. Confronted by Freya's soldiers, Eric watched Sara be killed, only to be knocked out and thrown into a river.

Seven years later, Eric is a Huntsman who previously helped Snow White defeat Ravenna. But the evil mirror has been adversely affecting Snow White, so she had it sent away, although both it and those transporting it have since disappeared. When he realizes Freya has been spying on him from afar and now knows the mirror could be hers for the taking, Eric sets out to find it, accompanied by dwarf siblings Nion (NICK FROST) and Gryff (ROB BRYDON).

They're eventually joined by two other dwarves, Mrs. Bromwyn (SHERIDAN SMITH) and Doreena (ALEXANDRA ROACH), and face various perils and surprises as they attempt to find the mirror before Freya does.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
If they liked the first film, "Snow White and the Huntsman," they probably will.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For fantasy action violence and some sensuality.

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.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
