Rupert Sanders' vision of enchantment is a Thomas Kinkade painting brought to life.

Theron gives the picture some spine. As Snow White, Kristen Stewart supplies the heart.
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.

If you don't walk out of the movie (as I was sorely tempted to do) you'll eventually get to meet the seven dwarfs... This touch of whimsy is welcome but comes too late to rescue the dark-hearted movie.

As far as live-action reimaginings of fairy tales are concerned, this is one of the more inventive ones and is unquestionably better than 2011's Red Riding Hood misfire.
June 1, 2012
Vastly superior to Mirror, Mirror in every way. Great work from Charlize Theron.
June 1, 2012
Sanders does not (yet) share Guillermo del Toro's gifts, but he, too, has an eye for the beautiful and the grotesque, and for that entrancing borderline where the two meet.
June 1, 2012
Only Bob Hoskins as the blind seer Muir comes close to making us care. We can almost glean Snow White's heroic possibilities through his clouded eyes. As much as we'd like to, we certainly can't from Stewart's efforts.
June 1, 2012
Some of the fairy tale effects are marvelous; but the odyssey from darkness to light is unduly long and sloggy, and Stewart, with her contemporary edge, seems to be acting in the wrong era.
June 1, 2012
"Snow White and the Huntsman," a solemn but mostly savvy rewrite, is a welcome upgrade.
June 1, 2012
A virtual orchard of toxic excess, starting with the unnecessarily sprawling cast of characters.
June 1, 2012
There are many splendid reasons to see Snow White and the Huntsman - enough, maybe, not to care that neither Snow White nor the Huntsman rank high among them.
June 1, 2012
Fails to realize the full potential of its ambitiously dark vision.
June 1, 2012
Is this movie trying to be "Excalibur" or "My Little Pony"?
June 1, 2012
Perhaps the best thing about "Snow White and the Huntsman" is it doesn't smirk at itself. It plays out as a story about mortality and greed and oppression in a fantastical world, but it doesn't act as if anything is silly.

There will be lots of versions of Theron's evil queen running around West Hollywood this Halloween; it's a performance that's one part Tilda Swinton to 30 parts Faye Dunaway, the sort of over-the-top craziness that spawns midnight screenings.
May 31, 2012
A slow, boring film that has no charm and is highlighted only by a handful of special effects and Charlize Theron's truly evil queen.
May 31, 2012
Stunningly shot and inconsistently acted and written, Snow White has enough visual fireworks to keep the film afloat, even if star Kristen Stewart can't get out of Twilight mode.
May 31, 2012
It is an absolute wonder to watch and creates a warrior princess for the ages. But what this revisionist fairy tale does not give us is a passionate love - its kisses are as chaste as the snow is white.
May 31, 2012
The director sets a heart-pounding pace, pausing only for such interludes as Snow White's encounter with seven dwarfs who could not be more distant from their Disney forebears.
