September 27, 2012
With a harder commitment to the macabre, a recast lead and the abolishment of the love triangle, this could have been a minor classic.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
September 15, 2012
Not quite the fairest in the land, but certainly fair enough to keep you enchanted by the sets, costumes and a delightful Chris Hemsworth.
Full Review | Original Score: 6.5/10

A film like this should have easily been able to work, but it needed much better execution than these filmmakers gave it.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
September 13, 2012
Too much of the film is mired in the bleak, gritty world of Hollywood Medieval Grunge...Have filmmakers never looked at medieval art? They had pretty colors back then, I'm almost certain.

long on blood and thunder and relatively short on emotional engagement
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
September 10, 2012
While it's a heavily flawed film, there's more good than bad to be found in this adaptation of the Grimm tale.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

Snow White boasts some clever visuals and engaging action, but the story feels forced and better fit for a SyFy movie of the week.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
August 22, 2012
Poorly conceived, shabbily plotted, devoid of character development and at least arguably sexist.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/10

At best, Snow White and the Huntsman is pretty but forgettable. At worst, as with its occasionally anachronistic dialogue ('passed away,' 'OK') and its heroine's sadly undeveloped character, there's something rather hollow about these dark woods.

"Snow White and the Huntsman" has style dripping from every frame and features incredible imagery. The performances are very entertaining, the score is fairly satisfying, and its special effects are just extremely well done and pure bliss for your eyes.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10

The main reason to see it (on the big screen, especially) are the delicious, evocative production elements.
Full Review | Original Score: B-
June 28, 2012
That it doesn't really nail a flavour all its own is ok; it mimics the best bits of other movies so well, there's plenty of enjoyment to be had even if none of it substantially resonates.
June 26, 2012
The stylistic influence of Lord of the Rings permeates the film and effectively sells the fairy tale as a drama-driven showdown between the Evil Queen's unquenchable vanity and Snow White's uncrushable sense of honour.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

Visually dazzling but the rest is poisoned by mediocrity
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
June 23, 2012
I liked 'Mirror Mirror' because of its tongue-in-cheek humor. I like 'Snow White and the Huntsman' because it's, well - forgive me - so grim.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
June 23, 2012
Restores some of the fable's pre-Disney grit and gristle and strips decades of candy coating off its grown-up edge.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

You could literally cast Harold Pinter's The Homecoming AND The Caretaker with these eight men and run them side by side on the West End to packed houses for years.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
June 22, 2012
Feels confused, directionless and overstuffed, with an uneven pace and a tone that lurches from dark gothic horror to candy-coloured fairy garden to epic fantasy battle.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
June 22, 2012
If you can suspend your disbelief that Kristen Stewart is "the fairest of all them all" in a beauty contest with Charlize Theron...
Full Review | Original Score: C

A surprisingly compelling action/fantasy film, with a consistent pace, effective atmosphere and commanding visuals galore.
