    Snow White and the Huntsman reinvents the legendary story in a film of astonishing beauty and imagination.

  • Andrew O'Hehir

    I resisted this derivative mishmash of classic fairytale and modern epic fantasy for as long as I could, but ultimately it swept me up into its geeky but manly embrace and carried me away on a white charger. Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    Ambitious, brutish, ruthlessly unromantic – has the right idea casting its heroine as a Joan of Arc-type crusader and its evil queen a dissertation (albeit first draft) on beauty as the most direct path to power for the disenfranchised female.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Attempts to inject a little humor via the antics of the dwarves don't work, especially since one of the little people is killed early in the proceedings. No one's going to be singing "Hi ho! Hi ho! It's off to work we go!" after that happens.

    Yes, 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.

  • Steven Rea

    A surprisingly fine, fantastic movie it is.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    This is a violent film. It's rougher, in fact, than "The Hunger Games."

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    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.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    An evil spell nearly does Snow White in, but it's lifted in the nick of time. The strangest spell afflicts Kristen Stewart; she can't seem to imbue Snow White with anything more than a semblance of feeling. That spell never lifts, but it doesn't make much difference in the end because the forces of good manage to work around it.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    Though it is an ambitious - at times mesmerizing - application of the latest cinematic technology, the movie tries to recapture some of the menace of the stories that used to be told to scare children rather than console them.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Mary Pols

    Rare among the recent fairy tale adaptions (from "Mirror Mirror" to the dreadful "Red Riding Hood") the invigorating Snow White and the Huntsman actually breathes new life into an old story.

    Time Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Never quite delivers on its promise -- a dark retelling of the fairy tale in which women hold the true power, good and evil -- but it certainly is an attractive misfire.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    The movie's revisionist tone is startlingly enough to carry you along.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Shawn Levy

    If you've a mind to see a classic fairy tale rendered as an action movie, and if you want to see a sizeable handful of fine English actors have grand fun playing grizzled dwarves, there are worse ways to spend two hours than in the company of Snow White and the Huntsman.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    The nearly two preceding hours often feel like three, as the patchwork script keeps introducing characters and subplots and dropping them, all while rushing characters through eye-popping environments.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Scott Bowles

    One of those movies that makes for a fantastic trailer. Much beyond that can feel like repeat viewing.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Snow White and the Huntsman is definitely a missed opportunity. Sanders was on to something in taking the Snow White tale to its most menacing extreme.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    Just feels like it was made from the pieces of every fantasy-action movie ever made.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Tal Rosenberg

    The CGI effects are so slick that they undercut the movie's shock value, and the action moves too quickly to instill a real sense of fear, but this is still visually impressive, with spectacular make-up, costumes, and cinematography.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    It's Theron who owns this film, imbuing her deliciously depraved Queen with furious pain and deep-seated fear.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    Why can't heroines just be heroines anymore, instead of micromanaged personalities who may as well have the words "Role Model" tattooed across their foreheads?

    Movieline Full Review
  • Kate Erbland

    It's hard to imagine who will thrill to this violent, gorgeous, and empty film.

    Boxoffice Magazine Full Review
  • Keith Uhlich

    The rousing speeches and booming battle scenes are all well done as far as blockbuster spectacle goes, but you can't help but feel the filmmakers' resistance to the story's grimmer undercurrents.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Dan Jolin

    A strong visual style tussles with flaccid storytelling in this ambitious retelling of Grimm. It won't exactly have Walt Disney spinning in his secret ice chamber, but you may wish they spent more time worrying about what exactly the film is than who it's for.

    Empire Full Review
  • Josh Winning

    A visually inventive, deliciously dark fairytale reheat. The story's far from the stuff of legend, but Theron makes for a ferocious meanie, helping to flush away "Mirror Mirror's" sugary aftertaste.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    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.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    A tastefully overbearing franchise fairy tale with a handful of ravishing touches.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    I spent several minutes not caring what was happening with the story but just observing the patchwork illusion of oversized props, short stunt doubles and computer grafting of big faces on small bodies. Nice work.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    A bold rethinking of a familiar old story and striking design elements are undercut by a draggy midsection and undeveloped characters in Snow White and the Huntsman.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    Handsome but hollow, Snow White & the Huntsman is easily among the stranger additions to a roster of rebooted fairy tales.

    Variety Full Review
  • Ed Gonzalez

    As feminist fantasy, the film is non-committal, and as a reimagining of the fairy tale, it's at best expensive-looking without seeming wantonly so.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Nick Pinkerton

    For all this Snow White's visual ornamentation, there's no sense of narrative priority - the filmmakers can't see the Dark Forest for the trees.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Linda Holmes

    What dooms Snow White and the Huntsman is ultimately not how over the top it is, but how dull it is.

    NPR Full Review
  • Tasha Robinson

    There are complicated elements at work here, with threads of curdled vengeance, victim entitlement, and insanity bound together in ways it would take a much smarter film to unravel. Snow White And The Huntsman doesn't try, and the film just keeps getting dumber as it goes along.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Peter Bradshaw

    The result is tangled and overblown.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    In Snow White and the Huntsman, this talented but woefully miscast actress (Stewart) is expected to rally an entire army of soldiers, even though she usually looks like she forgot the combination to her locker.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    Snow White and the Huntsman, the first feature from British commercial director Rupert Sanders, has its work cut out for it if it wants to be a truly dull piece of junk - but it manages.

    Slate Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    Suffers from a problem in its rhythm. It's not that its pace is too slow, but that it's too regular, and this lack of syncopation makes it feel slow.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    Overlong, overcrowded, overstimulating and with an over-the-top performance by Charlize Theron as the evil queen Ravenna, the movie is a virtual orchard of toxic excess, starting with the unnecessarily sprawling cast of characters.
