    May not be the fairest of them all but it is still pretty good.

    A colourful and sophisticated spin on a well-known tale, recommended for children of all ages.

    So desperate to play it safe that it actually becomes drab.

    Lily Collins' Snow White is a doltish drip,..While the often incoherent filmmaker has always favored style over content in the past, he was never this insipid.

    The children in the audience seemed to enjoy it and as they seem to be the intended audience then on that level at least it succeeded.

    Superlative performances from Roberts and Hammer almost cover the shortcomings. Like most Tarsem films it's a muddle, but this time not one with enough distracting dazzle.

    A romantic panto-style romp through goody-gum drops land, full of the best natured fun you'll find on the big screen, and with an inspired performance from Julia Roberts.

    Bonkers but bloody good fun, especially if you're under the age of 10.

    Younger children might enjoy Mirror Mirror because it's bright, shiny and pretty.

    I don't think you'll feel 'happily ever after' when the film ends, but you'll be pleased enough by its magic.

    Far below par for a Tarsem picture, if seen solely on the basis of the family film Mirror Mirror wants so badly to be; the very youngest viewers will be sufficiently entertained by the dwarves' hijinks and silly, slapstick humour.

    'Who's the fairest of them all,' is a cruel question to pose to a Hollywood beauty in her forties facing competition from ever-younger starlets, but Julia Roberts gamely takes it on the chin in this tongue-in-cheek reinvention of the classic fairy tale

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

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

    ...an entertaining and creative retelling of an old fairy tale that should entertain children and adults alike.

    This sometimes manic and very straightforward film won't be for everyone, but it does have a surprisingly broad appeal.

    There's no point of view or narrative purpose to the changes in the story, just a lot of feeble jokes and wan self-referential jabs.

    I knew 10 minutes into this dismal movie it would be a long night.

    By toning down his excesses for a mass audience of largely children, the self-billed Tarsem hits his sweet spot, serving up lavish sets and costumes to create a fantasy world that doesn't make us want to scratch our eyeballs out.

    The film is a delight... and it doesn't need to be anything else.

    Watching this, I kept thinking all the elements are here, "Why am I not liking it?" The answer is simple Singh crafted a fairy tale world that no one wants to be in.
