You can read my review for Huntsman: Winter’s War to see what I liked and didn’t like. Suffice it to say, I liked it enough to say all the rest of this…
The fantastic thing about this movie is that it features a lot of interesting, powerful women. That the story is driven by these women – kingdoms rise and fall in their hands. They aren’t outnumbered by the men. They aren’t dismissed or reduced to objects of desire, sidelined just enough to cheer for the hero as he gets things done. Each one moves this story in her own way.
It’s what makes this an interesting movie despite it’s flaws (and most movies have some flaw or other). It’s what makes it exciting and inspirational.
There should be more movies like this. Winter’s War should make so much money that people keep making Huntsman movies; keep making interesting movies about dimensional women. And if they happen to be fairy tale action movies, all the better.
