Is the movie for kids?

Featuring gorgeous visual effects, an all-star cast and a new take on a classic we all know, Snow White and the Hunter premiered in 2012 and was, unsurprisingly, a box office success. Directed by Rupert Sanders, the film follows Snow White (Kristen Stewart) as she escapes her evil stepmother and is being chased in the woods by Eric the Hunter (Chris Hemsworth). For those looking to stream the movie, it was recently added to Netflix US

Joining Kristen Stewart and Chris Hemsworth is the cast of Snow White and the Hunter Also starring is Charlize Theron as the evil stepmother Queen Ravenna, Sam Claflin as William, Sam Spruell as Finn and more. We also get to know the dwarves, with familiar faces like Ian McShane, Toby Jones and the late Bob Hoskins portraying the characters. Although the movie did not delight critics or audiences alikeit still raised enough money to justify a second installment, The Hunter: Winter Warwhich came out in 2016.

Snow White and the Hunter is by no means a perfect film, but it’s still an entertaining take on a well-known story that might appeal to younger audiences as well. But just because it’s based on a children’s fairy tale doesn’t mean it’s exactly right for little kids. We would recommend this for pre-teens and teenagers. Let’s get to the why.

Age Rating for Snow White and the Huntsman and Parents Guide

The 2012 action-adventure film has an official MPAA rating of PG-13, meaning some of the scenes shown may be unsuitable for children under 13. Parents and/or legal guardians are advised to either view the film with their children or to view the film beforehand without making any prior judgment. The rating is based on “intense violence and action sequences and short sensuality”.

Accordingly IMDb’s Guide for Parents, Parents have reported scenes of light sex and nudity, as well as slightly obscene expressions. The violence and gore in the film are rated as mediocre with scenes of stabbing, ax throwing, arrow shooting, blood and death. It was also reported that the film might be too scary for young audiences.

Snow White and the Hunter There are adult elements involved, but not enough to warrant an R rating, meaning this is probably a perfect teenage movie. Of course, it is at the discretion of the parent or guardian, but that is our recommendation. Need to watch the trailer to get a better feel? Watch it here:
