* OneSceneWonder: Early on, one of the resistance fighters and his son are captured and brought before the Queen. The father stays silent and ignores the Queen's taunting, but the son [[spoiler:grabs a dagger and ''stabs her in the stomach.'' Granted, it doesn't kill her but you have to admire his spirit.]]

* BrokenBase: Kristen Stewart's performance. Some find her to be just as dull and wooden as she's accused of in the ''{{Literature/Twilight}}'' films. Others find the [[SheReallyCanAct the exact opposite]].



* EvilIsCool[=/=]EvilIsSexy: Queen Ravenna.

to:

* EvilIsCool[=/=]EvilIsSexy: Queen Ravenna.EvilIsCool: Ravenna is also a huge badass, who's nearly invincible and doesn't seem to even need the massive army she commands. One of Ravenna's coolest moments is when she stands in the middle of a fire just to deliver a BadassBoast.
* EvilIsSexy: Ravenna is played by Hollywood beauty Charlize Theron. In the early parts of the film, before Ravenna's appearance deteriorates as her powers weaken, her beauty is showcased to its full extent.



* GirlShowGhetto: Zigzagged. Snow White is the lead but she's barely featured on some of the posters, the marketing choosing to focus on Chris Hemsworth as the Huntsman. However given the title has 'Snow White' in it, that was a pretty clear indicator that she was the lead. The film did make plenty of money at the box office, and combined with the success of ''Film/TheHungerGames'', it was made clear that Hollywood was strongly considering greenlighting female-driven action movies.
* HarsherInHindsight:
** Now that it's public knowledge that Kristen Stewart (playing the ''title role'') and Rupert Sanders (director) had an affair, it makes the movie either more watchable or cringeworthy depending on your tastes. Let's just say lines about Snow White having the "fairest blood" or being "pure" are full of retroactive irony. One wonders what the DVD commentary - [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qhXb_aTtH0w not this one]][[note]]unlike producer Joe Roth, Rupert Sanders is on the real commentary track[[/note]] - would have in store...
** Not to mention the fact that one of the fairytale's themes is that of an older woman being supplanted by a younger beauty. Now consider the fact that Snow White's mother was played by the director's real-life wife...

* [[SugarWiki/HeReallyCanAct She Really Can Act]]: Some who haven't seen KristenStewart outside of Film/{{Twilight}} are getting this reaction. Others feel the [[DullSurprise complete opposite]].



* {{Squick}}: Good Lord, Ravenna is doing this almost the entire movie. Ravenna's implied incestuous relationship with her brother, the Queen's creepy relationship with Snow White, her used milk bath being piped to peasants outside to collect and drink, the scene where she eats the raw hearts of dead birds, the scene after she [[spoiler: poisons Snow White and all her disgusting dead crows slowly ooze together to form her body.]] By far, the creepiest moment has to be [[spoiler: when she tricks Snow White into eating a poisoned apple by pretending to be William and ''allowing Snow White to kiss her.'' Even if you claim FoeYay, it's downright gross.]]

* WTHCastingAgency: Many had trouble getting past the conceit that Kristen Stewart is "fairer" than Charlize Theron. The movie does stress that it's Snow White's inner beauty rather than outer however.

* ProphecyTwist: Some have interpreted the "If you hold her heart in your hand, she will be your salvation." to be this, that if Ravenna [[HeelFaceTurn changes]] and befriends Snow White, that she would be freed and forever young as well as good.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Ravenna spares Snow White and simply locks her in a tower for years. When we see the girl grown up, she appears to have at least been regularly fed and treated decently. So that begs the question of whether Ravenna genuinely felt affection for the girl. She only moves to kill the princess when she learns that it'll grant her eternal youth and beauty. Is this twisted affection on Ravenna's part, or is it an effect of Snow's fairest blood?

* MoralEventHorizon: The wicked queen crosses it when she [[spoiler:poisons Snow White with the poison apple]].
** She could've easily crossed that in the beginning by murdering Snow White's father.
** Her brother Finn is even worse. He seems to cross the line with his AttemptedRape of Snow White, but later we discover he crossed it a long time ago.
