Goofs

In the previous film, Queen Ravenna had a very close, somewhat mystical bond with her brother Finn, who was her head enforcer. He is also seen during a flashback to when Ravenna received her magic powers. This film, however, makes absolutely no mention of him in either the scenes set prior to the first film or the ones set afterward. In addition, there is no indication in the first film of Ravenna having any other siblings besides her brother. See more »

Quotes

Sara: Dead? Is that what you told everyone? You poor heartbroken widower. That story must have wet the eyes of many young lasses. Maybe more than their eyes.

An improvement on the original with an outstanding cast
9 April 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The Huntsman: Winter's War may have its flaws, but is an undeniable improvement over the first which appears even more average due to the new life found in the second. Some dodgy and questionable accents aside, the main four and the supporting four all compliment each other and offer strong and more complex performances (especially those returning), if only the underrated Sam Clafflin got more of a look in. Beautiful scenery, landscapes and effects all help in building this fantasy world and the before-and-after structure helps with the flow of the story once you overcome the inceptive confusion. I went into this film expecting to come out disappointed but instead did so feeling pleasantly surprised at the increased quality and final product.

Summary: The Huntsman: Winter's War, whilst with its flaws, is an undeniable improvement over the first instalment, with rich scenery and landscapes bolstered further by solid performances all round.
