The Huntsman: Winter’s War spins out the 2012 dark twist on the fairy tale classic Snow White and the Huntsman with a thin prequel. Mixing in elements of Hans Christian Andersen’s The Snow Queen, Winter’s War pads out the origin of Snow White’s evil queen and her magic mirror with a frozen-hearted Ice Queen sister. Enraged when Eric (Chris Hemsworth reprising his role) and Sara, two of the Ice Queen’s warriors, break the cardinal rule and fall in love she threatens the whole land with the help of her sister. It’s hardly surprising this prequel comes from the producer of Maleficent but it seems to lack the same magic and originality it offered.
