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.

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
September 14, 2012
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
August 22, 2012
Poorly conceived, shabbily plotted, devoid of character development and at least arguably sexist.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/10

We're supposed to believe that Snow White commands the adoration of everyone she meets, but when poor Hemsworth lunges in for his emotional reveal, it's as plausible as a man professing undying love for a tablespoon.

Visually dazzling but the rest is poisoned by mediocrity

If Snow White's tale is a shiny red apple, then modern tropes of fantasy are the poison.

It's porn for pagans; the kind of movie that will play well at The Corn Exchange.
May 30, 2012
The narrative lacks drive and there's something just a bit, well, dull about the whole thing, with too many characters in a plot that, ultimately, it's difficult to relate to or care about.

Perhaps when it comes to fairy tales movie studios should just leave well enough alone unless they can come up with something that won't leave the audience feeling grumpy, sleepy or dopey.

After starting out strong and introducing a well-thought out group of pieces, the filmmakers suddenly seem to realize they have no idea what to do with them.
Full Review | Original Score: 6.5/10
June 20, 2012
Takes its cues from ... Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings trilogy and HBO's hit series Game of Thrones. If only it ever felt as grand as the former, or were as incest and decapitation laden as the latter.

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.

The movie has a lot of good ideas, [but] they're assembled in such a disjointed fashion that the sum is never equal to its parts.

Sanders creates some wonderfully evocative visuals, but they're just fleeting moments of beauty that can't compensate for the slow, tedious story.

The movie offers few thrills but will provide some great screen-savers.

There's lots of talent on display in the film (and I think the film will make a good display movie for your home theater one day), but none of it matters when the script is so saggy and the lead so wrong.

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.
