Critics Consensus

Like most of Tarsem Singh's films, Mirror Mirror is undeniably beautiful -- but its treatment of the age-old Snow White fable lacks enough depth or originality to set it apart from the countless other adaptations of the tale.

When a charming prince (Armie Hammer) spurns the queen in favor of Snow White, she has the princess thrown into the woods to be devoured by a fearsome beast. Rescued by a band of diminutive highway robbers, Snow White vows to take back her realm from the treacherous queen and, with the help of her small rescuers, roars into action.

    The best version of this familiar tale floating around in cinematic circles, helmed by Julia Roberts with a light touch and ably seconded by Nathan Lane's best performance ever. All the familiar ingredients are presented in a fresh way and generally speaking it's a fun time at the fairy castle of ye olden days.

    shave the monobrow before it takes over your whole face lily collins! the whole thing is relying on julia roberts to carry it!! one decent actor can only do so much though!!! positives being some funny moments and visually interesting but nowhere close to tarsems the fall! as far as the story goes the book was totally thrown away!

    A charming, creative (and uneven) re-imagining of the Snow White tale. Entertaining performances by Armie Hammer and Nathan Lane. Julia Roberts was a disappointment, seeming to have dialed it in with the passion and skill of a high school drama teacher.

    Snow White's story gets a pseudo-feminist re-boot, but much of the story remains intact. I was ready to give this film three stars, a stretch for me because films like this are not my cup of tea, but the closing credits were scored by an auto-tuned, dance-club number that is, in the words of Super Reviewer Alice Shen, "half-Bollywood." I didn't even watch the full number. It was revolting. I watched the film for its costume design, the category for which it's nominated, and the costumes and production design are indeed nomination-worthy. Lush, colorful schemes abound, and the film is a visual delight. We all know the story. I have always contended that <i>Snow White</i> is coded racism and sexism; after all, the "fairest of the land" can be a synonym for "whitest," and Snow White is confined to domestic duties when she joins the dwarves. But when Snow eschews the Prince's help, she essentially deploys a feminist message, saying that she doesn't need a man to rescue her. I wish they had stuck with this, but the plot eventually proves that she does need rescuing. The film was so close to something unique. All the performances are fine. Nathan Lane is Nathan Lane, and Julia Roberts is charmingly caddy. Lily Collins was there too. Overall, this film had promise once upon a time.
