Mirror Mirror (2012)



Critic 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.

'Mirror Mirror' is as gaudily spectacular as you expect if you've seen director Tarsem Singh's films, 'The Fall' and 'Immortals'.

'Mirror, Mirror' is a trippy version of the Snow White story.

Mirror Mirror is a film that's all picture and no propulsion, each scene static in a basic set-decoration color scheme of teabag and banana.

Here, the familiar tale is retold with concessions to feminist self-determination and camp humor, bending the Grimm Brothers' tale without infringing on its basic beauty.

Singh is much more skilled as a visual artist than a storyteller, and his artistic fortunes seem to rise and fall with the inspiration of his screenwriters. In this case he's lucked out.

Audience Reviews for Mirror Mirror

Julia Roberts seems to be having a lot of fun in this amusing satire that plays with fairy tale clichés - a feminist take on the classic story full of witty dialogue and with a solid script much more inspired than Snow White and the Huntsman, even if not remarkable either.

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.

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.
