Continuity mistake: Snow White steals the huntsman's knife and threatens him with it. She is either holding it with the blade towards her or away from her depending on the shot. (00:42:25)


Continuity mistake: This is during the troll encounter. Snow White's hair moves back and forth in front/behind her left shoulder when she faces the troll. (00:53:10)


Revealing mistake: When Snow White rides the white horse bareback to the dark wood. In the last few frames as the horse gets trapped in the mud you can see a very thin set of reins attached to the horse's head.

Continuity mistake: When the dwarves are opening the castle gates for Snow White and her army, the rope holding the counterweight is cut. We see the gate dropping a few metres before hitting the ground. The dwarves then decided to hang on the rope and be the counterweight. However, when the gate dropped a few metres, the rope would have been pulled up a corresponding distance, but it was still hanging in the original place where it was cut.

Continuity mistake: When Snow White, in armour, and her followers are in the Queen's chamber and they fight "nail-men", one man is seen wearing a harness on his back, so when one "nail-man" throws him over, doing a 360, he is able to complete the feat. Then, in a second, as the "nail-man" propels the man up the wall, the harness is gone.


Continuity mistake: In the scene where the Queen dies, her eyes remain open after her last breath and through the whole aging transformation, but in the next shot where Snow White is seen standing in front of her, the Queen's eyes are closed.


Continuity mistake: When Snow White is escaping from the West Tower she goes through the underground sewer and ends up at the opening 3/4 of the way up the cliff, panicking at the height. Yet when she jumps off, she only falls two feet before before hitting water.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Snow White and her army are riding towards the castle, Snow's position changes from riding in front of the column with two soldiers carrying the King's flag flanking her, to riding between William and the Count and no flags around them, and back to riding in front of everyone.


Continuity mistake: When Snow White's army is attacking the castle, fireballs are coming towards them and crashing onto the beach. At one point, a fireball lands at an angle that could only occur if it had been launched from behind the advancing army.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Snow's army is riding towards the castle, there are shots from inside the castle where the dark soldiers are releasing the fireballs, and when the camera follows their trajectory, the riders can be seen straight ahead. However, there is a shot from the riders' side where they are riding alongside the castle (the castle walls and the soldiers are seen in the background) and heading to the gates in a circular path, not at all the straight one it shows when they arrive at the gates.


Continuity mistake: During the scene where Queen Ravenna's men bring the huntsman to her throne room, after the shot where the Huntsman says, "and if I refuse?" Ravenna lifts her head, which is tilted slightly to the right. In the next shot, where Ravenna's men put the weapons to the huntsman, Ravenna's head is suddenly tilted to the left.

Continuity mistake: When the Queen is having her beauty treatment done, when she ends up covered in white goo the slices of fruit on her eyes disappear in the wide angle.

The Huntsman: The forest gains its strength from your weakness.

Trivia: When Snow White's mother pricks her finger at the start of the movie, her blood falls on the snow. The blood you see is actually director Rupert Sanders' real blood. He used his own because he felt that fake blood looked too unrealistic.
