It was a chore trying to stick with watching this letdown. JuliaRoberts as the fairest of the land ... Give Me a Break! I love whatJulia usually offers us in regards to entertainment, she is a firstrate actor ... but this was not a good choice for her career. Popularactors should use their heads when it comes to the roles they accept... if you want you career to take a nose dive ..... play a villain,and play it well ... bye bye career! A fine example would be KevinBacon who? Sleepers ruined his career ... and The Invisible Man buriedit completely. Unfortunately, Travolta did the same thing with two ofhis movies. Then came HairSpray!!!! Lily Collins was great as SnowWhite ... excellent choice, as was Armie Hammer. However, when it comesto Nathan Lane ... he was a totally wasted talent in this film, and whyhe ever signed on board is beyond my imagination. Nathan, darling, youare a star, start acting like it and get yourself some leading parts... you're too good for all this nonsense! To be upstaged by a gang ofDwarfs is so embarrassing! On the other hand ... the dwarf gang was ariot, and walked away with the movie! I thought Jordan Prentice(Napoleon) was very personable, a friendly face in the crowd, and Ienjoyed his contribution to the film ... even though the film, as awhole, was pretty crappy.LadyShalene

I know that this is a children's film, and that it is not supposed tobe dark or mysterious or have a sense of seriousness. But this film is,to be put simply, a disaster. A huge disappointment towards the name of'Snow White'. This film rivals with another Snow White fairytale whichhas recently been released starring Twilight's Kristen Stewart andThor's Chris Hemsworth. Although I haven't seen Snow White andHuntsman, there is no doubt that the film could be anywhere near as badas this one.Mirror Mirror brings together an unusual set of circumstances withinthe tale of Snow White. Lily Collin's is our young female antagonist,Snow White. Although she comes across all young and innocent, it turnsout that she is rather handy with a sword. Julia Roberts is our queenwho holds Snow White within her castle and doesn't give a care in theworld about her. To put it short, she has too much fun playing a bitch.Lastly, Armie Hammer plays the prince, a frustrating and haplesscharacter who's cheesiness becomes so annoying you wish that Snow Whitewould just chop him up during a sword-fight. And where is our huntsman,our woodsman, the man who is sent to capture Snow White's heart andbring it to the queen? There is no Chris Hemsworth in this film.The story is meant to be that an evil queen realises that she is notthe fairest of them all and that a young lady by the name of 'SnowWhite' who lives with her seven dwarfs is the fairest. She sends awoodsman to kill her and bring back her heart but he doesn't. He killsan animal instead and brings back that heart. This film is like a trainthat has been completely derailed off of the tracks of the storyline.They may not have wanted to follow it, but the film was terriblewithout it! The dwarfs aren't even called Sleepy, bashful, playful,etc. They have a completely different set of names, and in this film,they don't work at a mine... they are bandits! Who disguise themselvesas giants! What?! They add very little humour (which they are intendedto do) and are a pointless attribute to the storyline.This film is not enjoyable, it is frustrating, a complete waste oftime. It fuels upon dwarfs, madness, a pointless sing-a-long and cheesyacting. Julia Roberts, stick to romantic comedies. So Bad, a piece of cinematic trash

In short, this one of the most disappointing movies that I have everseen on the big screen. Despite the beautiful graphics and big starslike Julia Roberts, the film, in the end, felt like the quality of amade for TV movie. The story began with a grand idea of delivering aalternative vision to a classic fair tail, but ended filled with holesin the story line and flow. None of the characters had any depths oremotional attachment. The entire movie felt like a train wreck ofrandom scenes and jokes. Julia Roberts did a fantastic as the queen,but the same cannot be said for the rest of the cast, whom the directorprobably found in the back alley of the studio. In conclusion, do notgo see this movie and save your money and more importantly save yourtime!

There's plenty of spectacle in movies these days; it's delight that's in short supply, and Tarsem Singh's Mirror Mirror offers plenty of it, shimmering like a school of minnows in a reflective pond.

...one needn't be asking too much of Mirror Mirror in order to be at least occasionally disarmed by its pockets of genuine eccentricity.

I really enjoyed this movie although I didn't really have much of adesire to see it when it was in theaters. Long-time fan of JuliaRoberts but I'd only seen Lily Collins in "Abduction" (and badlywanting to arch her eyebrows) and Armie Hammer in "Social Network" so Ididn't really know what to think of them. I enjoyed Armie's performancebut wasn't really into the connection between Lily and Taylor Lautner.I figured she may have been a little too young for the "Abduction"part, but watching this movie, innocent puppy love (ironicallyconsidering one particular scene) seems to be more of her speed. Plusshe and Armie were really cute in action. Julia Roberts was quite thehandful as a horribly jealous queen. It's been way too long since Iread "Snow White" so I don't remember whether they mainly kept to thestoryline but either way it goes the plot in this one was great. Ienjoyed the witty comebacks, the fight scenes, the mother-daughterbattles and a particular bug spell. Good stuff.

Mirror, Mirror is a tongue-in-cheek revision of the Snow White fairytale, where everything is comedic and absurd, where the evil Queen is avain Julia Roberts, and the seven dwarfs are bandits who pose as giantson tall stilts. It's a silly swashbuckler with very little depth to itscharacters, not to mention the fact that all of the jokes feel as ifthey came out of the preschool playbook. While it is all perfectlyharmless, and may even delight kids, it's just not much fun for anyadult looking for something to at the least entertain them. However, aswith any film directed by Tarsem Singh, it is pretty to look at.I give Mirror, Mirror a 4 out of 10!

1 Why just why. Look at how the men are treated in this movie. It's thestereotypical negative media impression of the American male. A femaleempowerment message that makes all the men look like idiots. I may notforgive Julia Roberts for this misandry. The graphics were okay, butnot worth the price of admission. The fight scenes were also prettylame. There was not as much adventure to get excited about. Therewasn't exciting action.2 The message is bad, and it reflects negatively on our society.To seethe guy their fighting over be such a tool. It was just so stupid.Please don't let your kids see this.Bad film. Worse message

Uneven, subversively flamboyant, tediously tweaking the 'Once Upon a Time' concept

Mirror Mirror is a lighthearted, family-friendly treatment of the Brothers Grimm fairy tale that doesn't stray too far from previous versions.

It certainly wasn't the worst movie I've ever seen in a theater, but itwas close. The jokes were obnoxiously unfunny (the prince in particularcomes to mind for truly uninspirational delivery) and the "humor" wasbarely a step above a seven year old recounting fart jokes. Theaudience I saw the movie with did not laugh ONCE, and for good reason.The CGI was unimpressive, too. It looked to be about the quality of aSyfy made-for-TV movie and some of the transitions between reality andthe Queen's mirror world were jarring and generally just bad. Theoutdoor sets were fake looking, and even if that was a stylisticchoice, it was not a good one, particularly since 70% of the film isset in the woods.Of all the actors, Julia Roberts was the only one who seemed to havethe slightest grasp for drama, but not even she could save such aterrible script. Lily Collins was the worst of a bad bunch, probablybecause we had to see so much of her. I've seen some of her other work(Abduction and Priest) and she was not so awful in either of those, butshe was also not playing a main role.Generally just a bad movie. It might be worth renting if you have agroup of younger girls around and need some non-violent but unpreachyentertainment at hand, but I'd give this a pass under any othercircumstance.

From the very start of the film, the audience can tell its in for avisual treat. "Mirror Mirror" opens with the queen giving the storybackground (which is shown by porcelain dolls; a very creative choiceon the director's part). The film never lacks in taste or boring sets.From the town to the castle to the forest, stunning costumes and lavishsets abound. The script suffers a bit here and there. The film may have been betteroff without the occasional rude humor (thanks one hundred percent tothe dwarfs). The queen contributes to most of the humor with her grandability to spit sarcasm and one liners with little effort. JuliaRoberts fits into her character beautifully. Armie Hammer and LilyCollins make convincing characters as the prince and Snow White. I mustadd though, the film goes by at a rather slow pace. A minor complaintbut worth mentioning. Quite possibly my favorite thing about "Mirror Mirror" is thepresentation of the Mirror. The director gave us the last thing wewould expect for the Mirror (It resides in a shack in the middle oflake which is in the actual Mirror). Five star representation in myopinion. The film also noticeably twists the classic story by having Snow Whitesave the prince from a rather interesting (ahem... embarrassing) spellwith a kiss. Unlike other feministic films of late (most noticeablyAlice in Wonderland), the film quenches the blatant feminism themeswith a wonderful old fashioned fairy tale. The critics like to call out"Mirror Mirror" for lacking a unique touch or individuality. I wouldargue that the film's unique touch is its over-the-top sets andcostumes and why would we want something different than a an classicfairy tale. I would also argue in favor of the Bollywood-esque ending. The song anddance compliments the film with a magical touch. In conclusion, the film does have its minor downsides but remains aclassic film worth remembering. "Mirror Mirror" outshines Disney's"Enchanted" and "Alice in Wonderland" in fairy tale scale and no filmcan match its grand opulence.

With the ludicrous Bollywood-style finale having nothing to do with the rest of the movie, you do wonder if Singh has dared to look at his own face in the mirror since he put the film to bed.
R. Kurt Osenlund 11 May 2013
Like Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella with just a dash of Lars von Trier's Dogville, Tarsem Singh's rendering of this revisionist fairy tale is less cinematic than it is purposefully theatrical.

After reading some of the negative reviews, I pretty much did notexpect much out of this movie. While this is indeed a rather boringmovie for adults, I did enjoy the show more than I had expected.The story is simple and easy to understand, with a few twist here andthere. Admittedly, I did not find the jokes funny at all. Consideringthis is a show for kids (correct me if I am wrong), I would haveimagined that kids would love this movie.Lily Collins is a beautiful young lady with high potential to become agreat actress. The most enjoyable part was probably the ending with"Ned Stark"

I went to IMDb to read reviews of this movie before seeing it. What Iread was not too encouraging so I had fairly low expectations. Boy, wasI surprised to find myself smiling throughout the film while mydaughter and I nudged each other to comment on how much we liked it!Julie Roberts and Nathan Lane make a stellar duo, and every role was sowell cast. Conceptually, I was thrilled with the visuals, the costumingand computer animated sets and special effects. Any changes made to theoriginal story were in my opinion quite clever. The surprise Bollywoodnumber at the end cinched it for me! Take your family to see thismovie!

Cheeky version of the Brothers Grimm.

A twisted spin on the classic Snow White fairytale that strives for a humorous contemporary edge but mostly misses.
KindaWithIt 02 May 2013
Five writers - Jason Keller (screenplay), Melisa Wallack (screenplay),Melisa Wallack (story), Jacob Grimm (original story), Wilhelm Grimm(original story), and a director, Tarsem Singh, bring back the fable ofSnow White.Given the story's history, making a good movie about this is hard topull off. So, for me, Mirror, Mirror delivered mixed results. No doubtthat the movie is great to look at. Visually, it sparks. So to are theactors' performances. The cast does a very good job.It is in the story that I feel weighed the movie down. It feels heavyand therefore, too long. The movie tries very hard to be sincere withthe original story line. But in its attempt to do that, I feel that itprobably tied the very creative hands that could have made this filmpop. it does have a certain off-beat flavor that is comes acrossappealing at times.

This dull trifle forced me to co-opt the names Sleepy and Grumpy for the duration of its running time.
