Too much of the film is mired in the bleak, gritty world of Hollywood Medieval Grunge...Have filmmakers never looked at medieval art? They had pretty colors back then, I'm almost certain.

long on blood and thunder and relatively short on emotional engagement

While it's a heavily flawed film, there's more good than bad to be found in this adaptation of the Grimm tale.

Snow White boasts some clever visuals and engaging action, but the story feels forced and better fit for a SyFy movie of the week.

Poorly conceived, shabbily plotted, devoid of character development and at least arguably sexist.

At best, Snow White and the Huntsman is pretty but forgettable. At worst, as with its occasionally anachronistic dialogue ('passed away,' 'OK') and its heroine's sadly undeveloped character, there's something rather hollow about these dark woods.

"Snow White and the Huntsman" has style dripping from every frame and features incredible imagery. The performances are very entertaining, the score is fairly satisfying, and its special effects are just extremely well done and pure bliss for your eyes.

The main reason to see it (on the big screen, especially) are the delicious, evocative production elements.

That it doesn't really nail a flavour all its own is ok; it mimics the best bits of other movies so well, there's plenty of enjoyment to be had even if none of it substantially resonates.

The stylistic influence of Lord of the Rings permeates the film and effectively sells the fairy tale as a drama-driven showdown between the Evil Queen's unquenchable vanity and Snow White's uncrushable sense of honour.

Visually dazzling but the rest is poisoned by mediocrity

I liked 'Mirror Mirror' because of its tongue-in-cheek humor. I like 'Snow White and the Huntsman' because it's, well - forgive me - so grim.

Restores some of the fable's pre-Disney grit and gristle and strips decades of candy coating off its grown-up edge.

You could literally cast Harold Pinter's The Homecoming AND The Caretaker with these eight men and run them side by side on the West End to packed houses for years.

Feels confused, directionless and overstuffed, with an uneven pace and a tone that lurches from dark gothic horror to candy-coloured fairy garden to epic fantasy battle.

If you can suspend your disbelief that Kristen Stewart is "the fairest of all them all" in a beauty contest with Charlize Theron...

This gorgeous yet fractured fairytale has its flaws but is interesting enough and enjoyable enough to maintain your interest.

Star of the show is Theron's wicked stepmother, who seethes with barely contained sexual jealousy.
