Visually interesting (as you would expect from Tarsem Singh) and the cast all do their best, but the script is rotten to the core (just like that joke).

More lifeless than that hobo that's been stashed in my freezer for the last five months. The whole thing's just a grey-and-yellow void that has no charm or depth. I like how it's supposed to be winter and people are just walking outside in shorts or sleep exposed to the outside like it aint no thang.

In many ways simular to Tim Burton's Alice, in that it's a visually gifted director doing fuck-all with a classic childrens story... Small kids might enjoy it though.

The only good thing about this film is how closely Lily Collins resembles Audrey Hepburn. Everything else is ridiculous and unfunny. The film tries to pass itself off as cute, and I guess if you've got a retarded 7 year old, you've found the target audience.

What MIRROR MIRROR has--and far too many films lack--is a sense of sincerity and warmth, and a willingness to embrace its own fantasy. But it aims to be a comedy, too, and the comic timing for much of it just isn't there (the script is no great shakes either), despite the valiant efforts of the actors (Armie Hammer is great, Lily Collins strong, the dwarves quite fun) and the magnificent sets and costumes (Eiko Ishioka went out on a high note). Tarsem, for all his skill, needs better writers.

The dwarfs make this movie extremely watchable. They are entertaining throughout and are introduced early on. Tarsem Singh does his normal schtick (making nearly every scene look great) which works really well for the fantasy style. Too bad the script was so slow every time the dwarfs were absent. Also, did anyone catch when Nathan Lane said a grasshopper took advantage of him when he was transformed into a cockroach. Way to slip in the rape joke in a family movie guys.

Imaginative, amusing and gorgeous retelling of Snow White with a touch of Patty Hearst. The preponderance of negative reviews and opinions is yet more evidence of the unfortunate death of romance at the hands of "cool". The climactic battle with a monster in the woods was a rather dispensable standard festival of digital imagery, and the happy ending too perfunctory, but had these faults been rectified the reviews may well have been even more dismissive. What do people want: more Tim Burton?

It's better than the other one in that there's no Kristen Stewart in this one. And it's not terrible. Just ... not good in any sense either. Lily Collins is bland and looks so much like Audrey Hepburn that it's distracting. Roberts looks like she's enjoying herself, but is not really given anything to work with. The dwarves and the training montage are really the best parts.

It's fairly dramatically inert, with an unconvincing love story and pretty flat performances from the central trio of Collins, Roberts, and Hammer. However, there are some painterly visuals as you might expect from a Tarsem film, and a delightful cameo near the end from an actor I actually love and had no idea was in the film. Perhaps decent for younger, budding fantasy fans.

I liked the dresses and wardrobes but the story was something so terrible that it was no surprise how ridiculous the output Tarsem ended up. I understood the ending song, but it was way out of this place. The pacing was also non-existing.

I was really surprised by those many bad criticks. I've seen this one with my daughter and we had lots of fun. The bohemian version of the old fairytale was really funny in my mind and those freaky jumping dwarfs are pretty hilarious. But I can comprehend that this movie is somehow special and not made for the primary audience.

Julia Roberts' delicious take on the evil queen and the incredible costumes allow this reimagining of the Snow White tale to transcend rough patches like the embarrassing sequence where the Prince is given a "puppy love" potion instead of a "love potion". Additionally, you'll see the true identity of The Beast coming a mile away (although my 7-year-old didn't). If I could've been brought to care about any of the characters other than the evil queen, I would've quite enjoyed this.

The whole thing is a kind of sumptuous visual pageant. It really means to be more darling than daring, but the production is above and beyond expectation here. The plot is orderly but unsurprising, the dialogue I found the weakest, but interesting still was with a code-switching throughout, the deliberately dramatic dialogue uses sparkling modern directness almost like an aside. Two more thoughts: Nathan Lane carried the cast, and the ending was fairy-tale worthy. Giggle like an eight-year old!

It starts a little slowly, but in the end it was a tolerable, quirky Snow White adaptation. Lily Collins was dreamy in her role as Snow White.

Watching it, the film was able to raise a chuckle or two - with Julia Roberts and Nathan Lane on fine form, how could it not? - but looking back on it, the film strikes me as dull and long. While Tarsem does have visual flair, his costumes and designs distanced me from the film - they were expressionist but with nothing to express. Plus the utter lack of chemistry between Lily Collins and anyone, let alone with Armie Hammer ensures the film's tedium. The ads were right - this is one bad apple!

Great sets and costumes. Some nice ideas and some boring ones. Don't really know who will embrace it. It's not a film for children, and most of the adult audiences won't be interested. Roberts is great. The song at the finale is so out of place. I can go on like this. Anyway... It's ok? Well, maybe not.

Vaguely fun story, let down by some bad stylistic choices. The drab faded colour palettes and some frankly terrible-looking sound stage sets ruin the film. Maybe the director was intentionally trying to make it look theatrical, but if so then it was a poor choice. Collins makes the most of her lead role, playing Snow White well. The dwarves are all good too, but not given enough personality or screen time. Roberts is a very uninteresting evil queen, lacking the charisma to make a good villain.

Tarsem knows how to do visuals, and despite my skepsis (I saw Abduction, let's leave it there) Lily Collins really won me over and carried this film (with help from Nathan Lane) through charm alone. But as usual, I could have been without Julia Roberts. The biggest problem is the flawed script which has only a few shining moments (I finally realized I liked the film around the time of Hammer's "focus-group" line). Compared to last year's dreadful Red Riding Hood, Mirror Mirror is a masterpiece.

A mostly decent film with some nice imaginative visuals, albeit with some very obvious on-a-sound-stage sets that I cannot decide whether they were a stylistic choice or were just crap. The biggest problem is the humour. It is sort of wry and witty and almost subversive but the delivery by the actors is too obvious and self-aware. This is typified by the use of Nathan Lane: Everything he does has an air of slapstick silliness even when he's being serious. I found it quite tiresome after a while

While this film is not as good as the rest of Singh's work it is still pretty good and has a fair bit of his use of bright colours and imagination. I found the use and effects of the mirror to be at least a little different and well done.

While the film definitely has some dark tones, it's more a comedy than anything else, and except for a scary beast in the forest, it's a pretty kid-safe film. Roberts seems to be having a lot of fun indulging herself as the queen in a seemingly endless series of ridiculous gowns, and Collins is just as winning as can be. It's a fun movie.

Gorgeous costumes & style. Lily Collins was annoyingly wooden. I'm not sure how they made her look worse than in real life (probably the bad hair) but eyebrows were amazing. Julia Roberts was the star with Nathan Lane doing well too. Bad story w/tacked-on gloating comeuppance ending. Needed more friendship with Snow White and the dwarves. Peter Dinklage wasn't involved and Sean Bean lives. Everyone needs to put on winter clothing. Fav scenes: queen makeup; fights on stilts; puppets.

With Tarsem Singh at the helm, you expect this to be made up for with amazing visuals, but that's only sort of true. Eiko Ishioka's costumes (the last she designed) are amazing, but a lot of the film is fairly mundane and driven by mediocre CGI. The cast is okay, with Lily Collins really shining in her lead role, and Armie Hammer and Nathan Lane doing their best with mildly uninteresting characters. I'm not sure if Julia Roberts is miscast or if her character is misconceived, but I don't lik

A striking visual treat somehow lost between irony and ingenuity, with an inert romance provided by Lily and Hammer, an evil Julia Roberts as Julia Roberts and a crazy team of seven dwarfs. As a fairy tale meant to be a CGI flick, couldn't be any worse or better.

Whatever Tarsem had, he's lost it. The only remnant is the costumes. It's all filmed on cheap sound stages, the acting is terrible, and the story starts of silly and gets worse. You can put Julia's career on life support. The lull drags on after a slight respite for wide releases anyway. One more apple goes bad.

A beautiful and rather fresh take on an ancient tale, this version of Snow White tries to be too much at once. At times it is quite funny, but generally it's rather uninteresting and the Bollywood ending was a terrible disappointment.

I can't believe I'm saying this, but I didn't hate this movie as much as I thought I would. Granted, it's still not good. It can be a little too mean-spirited to be funny, and can be silly in places where it's not meant to be silly. But it did have a unique take on the "Snow White" story. The costuming is a bit too over the top, and it probably could have done with a rewrite. But it wasn't as much of an abomination as I expected.

Tarsem Singh once again proves he is a good director. Sadly, I feel like the writing could have been a little better. A lot of the parts written in were very corny. The direction was wonderful though and the costumes and sets were amazing. I loved the dwarfs and it was interesting to see the Princess saving the prince throughout the movie. Julia Roberts was better in this than I got from the previews. Gotta give props to Tarsem for the Bollywood ending. Lily Collins looked like she had fun!

The visuals are wonderful, the acting is good, and there are some strong moments, but this movie can't decide what it wants to be. Are we focusing on the Queen? No, because her storyline eventually becomes just scenes reacting to Snow White's - but she gets so many of them! Are we going for wacky comedy or mythic resonance? If it just picked one and stuck with it, it would be better.

I don't really have to say much about this one. The story about Snow White went through a serious modernisation and I didn't care for it one bit. This film offers some laughs, but is mediocre in every single way, except for the Bollywood ending, that was just plain awfull.

Ooh let's do like a modern, arch retelling of Snow White and it'll be all like knowing and arch and that sort of thing so it'll be full of all the usual fairy tale tropes and bullshit but we'll do it with a raised eyebrow so it'll be like ironic and we can totally have our cake and eat it yeah it'll be great and then we can drown out everything with ridiculous and relentlessly cheerful music regardless of situation.

I quite enjoyed Julia Roberts as the evil queen and her performance was wonderful. Unfortunately, the rest of the story just wasn't there. I got the sense of what it should do, but it was just missing in editing to make it quite right. Too bad. The special effects and the costumes and color were wonderful, but the story itself was lacking in the brilliance of it's visuals.

Mirror Mirror is a silly fantasy movie based on the Grimm fairy tale of Snow White. It's a mostly comedic take on the story and does a good and funny job of switching up enough of the plot and characters to keep things fresh. It has gorgeous production design and costumes, it has a good cast, it's relatively funny, and I can't see too many people disliking it. It tries to do too much at times and can't really pull it off, but for the most part it's enjoyable.

Is this film as meaningful (whatever that... means...) as some of Tarsem's other films? No. Could this movie's script have been written to cater to someone educated higher than the first grade? Yes. But THAT'S the beauty of it. This is a delightful retelling of a facsimile of a children's story. Stereotypes, bright colors, Disney soundtrack, the works. Just sit back and be a kid again.
