Critic Reviews

  • Cath Clarke, Time Out
    'Mirror Mirror' is as gaudily spectacular as you expect if you've seen director Tarsem Singh's films, 'The Fall' and 'Immortals'.
  • Richard Roeper, Richard Roeper.com
    'Mirror, Mirror' is a trippy version of the Snow White story.
  • Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
    Mirror Mirror is a film that's all picture and no propulsion, each scene static in a basic set-decoration color scheme of teabag and banana.
  • Nick Pinkerton, Village Voice
    Here, the familiar tale is retold with concessions to feminist self-determination and camp humor, bending the Grimm Brothers' tale without infringing on its basic beauty.
  • J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
    Singh is much more skilled as a visual artist than a storyteller, and his artistic fortunes seem to rise and fall with the inspiration of his screenwriters. In this case he's lucked out.
  • Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
    Who wants to see a fairy tale that weighs a ton? Mirror Mirror reflects badly on everyone involved.
  • Forrest Wickman, Slate
    Mirror Mirror is an odd little fantasia of a movie -- part jaunty adventure, part broad romantic comedy, part auteurist spectacle.
  • Linda Barnard, Toronto Star
    This rambling version of Snow White's tale is a pretty, spun-sugar confection, airy as a plate of Easter egg-coloured macarons and similarly devoid of substance.
  • Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
    The dwarves provide wonderful fun, Singh's visuals have true magic and Alan Menken's score is charming.
  • Leah Rozen, TheWrap
    Part of Mirror's problem is that the screenplay, credited to two writers and with a third getting a story credit, is all over the place.
