Top Critic Reviews
Rotten: 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.
- Alonso Duralde, The Wrap, Thursday, May 31, 2012
Fresh: 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.
- Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times, Thursday, May 31, 2012
Fresh: 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.

The fairy tale stripped of all Disney trappings. Kristen Stewart is bland but Charlize Theron rips into her part with relish and owns this movie.

Snow White & the Huntsman is a very good take on the classic tale. The film surprised me, and despite the flack it has received, I thought that it was a solid film with a very good cast. The film's strength lies in the performance of Charlize Theron who is simply menacing as Ravenna. I mean she really plays an effective and chilling villain on-screen. This is a terrific action adventure film and it provides an entertaining and worthwhile take on the classic tale. Chris Hemsworth is great here as well, and Kristen Stewart delivers her best performance yet, it redeems her previous bad and bland performances where she was basically playing the same character in her previous films. The plot of the film is very engaging and the special effects, costumes and production values are great as well. Snow White & the Huntsman is a fun film that in my opinion is much underrated and it doesn't deserve the flack it received. This version of Snow White has a dark, brooding and melancholic atmosphere which is mixed with hints of hope; the result is a film that is beautiful as it shows two sides of the coin in one picture. I really loved this take on the classic tale, and it is a very well done film that should appeal to action adventure fans everywhere. This is one of the better takes on Snow White, and I'm not comparing it to the classic Disney film either as this film was definitely a darker, more evil atmosphere about it than the 1937 animated classic. If you're looking for one of the best performances that Charlize Theron has ever done, then this film offers that. I really enjoy her work, not only is she beautiful but she can also act, and her performance here demands your full attention; you simply can't turn away from the screen. With exciting visuals and good performances, Snow White & the Huntsman is a must see action adventure and one that definitely doesn't deserve all the flack it received. Like I stated earlier, Kristen Stewart makes for a good Snow White, and she's quite impressive here, and she definitely surprised me. Definitely a film worth watching.
