A surprisingly fine, fantastic movie it is.

Wall Street Journal

By 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.

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.

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

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

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

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

The Hollywood Reporter

By 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.

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

San Francisco Chronicle

By 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.
