Mirror Mirror features over-indulgent story moments and, at times, hammy performances but still delivers a mostly fun riff on the Snow White story.

While it may not be as memorable as his other good projects, Singh has delivered a film that should delight audiences of all ages because of the timelessness of the story and the spin the writers have put on it.

The tone is campy and fun, although Roberts is better with the lighthearted dark comedy side of her role. Still, the script is light and witty, poking a lot of fun at itself and the visual artistry is absolutely gorgeous to look at.

Mirror Mirror is not a travesty. It's missing something though. The whole film plays like a Muppet movie with the actual Muppets cut out.

A sweet and endearing take on the Snow White story buoyed by solid performances with one exception: Julia Roberts.

a lush and ravishing rethinking of the Snow White story with both an old-fashioned feel and a modern sensibility

This film was a relief to watch after Singh's bungled action spectacle last year, and while it isn't as good as The Fall, it does at least get him back on track.

An odd, but beautiful, interpretation of "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs," "Mirror Mirror" will leave some viewers enchanted and others scratching their heads.

For the extraordinarily gifted Tarsem, Mirror Mirror is a mere lark, but it's still everything Shrek wanted to be, and more.

Charming, funny and beautifully designed, this is a hugely enjoyable fairy tale comedy with a witty script and terrific performances from all three leads.

It's entirely fair to say that a huge part of the "point" lies in creating a physically plausible version of an illustrated storybook. A+ all around on that count.

What's surprising is just how clearly Singh has left his fingerprints all over the film.

Such light comedy is right in the Julia Roberts wheelhouse, and she clearly relishes the chance to flex her proven timing while inhabiting a villainous character.

The tweens should enjoy it, and it looks beautiful for sure, but Mirror Mirror doesn't quite have the depth or humour to fill its 106-minute duration.

Singh's visuals are - as always - impressive and thanks to a better script this is a far more enjoyable experience than his recent Immortals.

Mirror Mirror is an effervescent and occasionally uproarious romp, which references the familiar elements including an enchanted looking glass and a poisoned apple.

No surprises here, just a fun and funny piece of PG eye candy.

It's inconsequential, campy fun but a sharper and funnier script would have made it more memorable and entertaining.
