Overly long and slow-moving, it's serious and ponderous from the get go, and doesn't really change gear until its underwhelming climax.

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.

Stewart's Snow White, meanwhile, pouts her lips, bats her bedroom eyes, and scarcely seems to have more on her mind than who might take her to the senior prom

Movie, movie on the wall, who's the lamest of them all? In 'Snow White and the Huntsman' that distinction is pretty much up for grabs.

Visually impressive but a little hollow overall, not unlike its lead.

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.

Thank God for Charlize Theron, who dials the crazy up to 'Warning: Panto!' As a result, she's the only one who looks like she's having any fun.

For all the money that was spent on "Snow White and the Huntsman," apparently there wasn't any allotment in the budget for enjoyment.
Jason Gorber

More puzzling than it is unwatchable, squandering some really quite exceptional moments under the weight of a dreary and dull tale.

Dear god, is this thing setting us up for a sequel in which Kristen Stewart has to negotiate yet another love triangle?

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.

Not much of anything makes sense, either as fairy tale or human drama.

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.
