Movie Reviews

  • this version does have dwarves, and they're played by non-dwarf actors who've been reduced by special effects
    4 of 5 by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies ]
  • this revisionist fairy tale does not give us is a passionate love - its kisses are as chaste as the snow is white
    3 of 5 by Betsy Sharkey [Los Angeles Times ]
  • they summon up a sumptuously dark and revisionist kingdom that's closer to "Game of Thrones" than the Brothers Grimm

    by Nick Pinkerton [Village Voice ]

    3 of 4 by Randy Myers [San Jose Mercury News ]

  • has enough visual flourish to provide periodic distraction from its narrative and thematic muddle
    Review rate : C by Chris Vognar [Dallas Morning News ]
  • has enough visual fireworks to keep the film afloat, even if star Kristen Stewart can't get out of Twilight mode
    2.5 of 4 by Scott Bowles [USA Today ]
  • freaky and twee
    3 of 4 by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer ]
  • feels like it was made from the pieces of every fantasy-action movie ever made
    2.5 of 4 by Ty Burr [Boston Globe ]
  • as a director of actors, Sanders has no flair for modulation
    2.5 of 4 by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone ]
  • a slow, boring film that has no charm and is highlighted only by a handful of special effects
    1 of 4 by Mick LaSalle [San Francisco Chronicle ]
