Theron gives the picture some spine. As Snow White, Kristen Stewart supplies the heart.

This Snow White may not be the fairest of them all, but sometimes, especially during the heat of summer, fair-to-middling does just fine.

Strong effects, good design, and an exciting use of nature help to empower Stewart and Theron, who inject a rich, double dose of feminism.

Like its vain Queen, it's so enamored of its own mirror image that it's hard to see past the style and get lost in the story. But as sheer spectacle, it delivers the goods.

Ostracized teacher fights to clear his name after false child molestation accusation.

Director Rupert Sanders and actress Charlize help elevate this otherwise forgettable fairy tale.

If you're going to mess with a fairy tale, then you'd better mess with it well. "Snow White and the Huntsman" toes the line - very closely - but eventually falls on the right side of it, once you get past the first half hour or so.

Avoids becoming yet another Twilight clone. If a sequel happens, it will be interesting to see what direction it takes.

An impressive debut for Sanders - an entertaining, visually stimulating (but ultimately hollow) summer movie experience.

With a harder commitment to the macabre, a recast lead and the abolishment of the love triangle, this could have been a minor classic.

Not quite the fairest in the land, but certainly fair enough to keep you enchanted by the sets, costumes and a delightful Chris Hemsworth.

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 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.

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.
June 26, 2012
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.

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.

A surprisingly compelling action/fantasy film, with a consistent pace, effective atmosphere and commanding visuals galore.

Snow White & The Huntsman is a satisfying start to what may become a long-running series.
