The biggest disappointment is its mediocrity, as it could have been the ultimate dark retelling of the classic fairy tale.
June 8, 2019
Sanders recaptures the story's dark roots and delivers a compelling and epic adventure that is a definite bright spot in a surprisingly dull summer movie season.
April 12, 2019
A film that succeeds somewhat by not trying to be anything it's not.

What you take away from this dark film, filled with several twisted characters and twisty turns, is a great deal of nicely-crafted atmosphere, and a terrific performance from Charlize Theron as the evil stepmother.
January 26, 2019
The superb cinematography and art direction deserve praise, but they could shorten the middle part of the story.

Is this tale a commentary on how women often feel used for nothing more than their beauty and therefore chose to think of it as power? Good try.
January 8, 2019
At times resembles a multi-million dollar perfume ad set in a fantastical, medieval-inflected world. Yet the central performances shine through and there is just enough humour.
January 3, 2019
The writing of this psychological morality tale is superb.

This is what happens when faerie tales are taken for the explorations of the human game that they truly are.
September 8, 2018
Snow White and the Huntsman takes the ageless fable, and makes it dark and exhausting.
August 30, 2018
Rupert Sanders' vision of enchantment is a Thomas Kinkade painting brought to life.
May 23, 2018
For all its flaws - and there are more of them than in Charlize "Evil Queen" Theron's magically aged face - Snow White delivers exactly what you expect from a fairy tale. And more.
October 23, 2017
Overall, I enjoyed Huntsman thought it was a good first effort from [director Rupert] Sanders, though pacing and some lazy narrative devices dragged it down a bit.
September 18, 2017
One had hoped for better.

Not a perfect movie by any stretch of the imagination, Snow White and the Huntsman can boast truly magnificent performances--minus Stewart, of course--an interesting take on a beloved tale, and gorgeous scenes. Too bad about some of that plot though.
July 19, 2016
Overly long and slow-moving, it's serious and ponderous from the get go, and doesn't really change gear until its underwhelming climax.
October 6, 2015
Theron gives the picture some spine. As Snow White, Kristen Stewart supplies the heart.
October 6, 2015
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.
October 6, 2015
Strong effects, good design, and an exciting use of nature help to empower Stewart and Theron, who inject a rich, double dose of feminism.
March 11, 2014
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.
