Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"'Mirror Mirror' is as gaudily spectacular as you expect if you've seen director Tarsem Singh's films, 'The Fall' and 'Immortals'."
‑ Cath Clarke, Time Out
"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."
‑ Nick Pinkerton, Village Voice
"You can only disappoint your fans so often before they turn and run in droves. Just ask Roberts' close friend, Mel Gibson."
‑ Al Alexander, The Patriot Ledger
"Mirror Mirror is an aesthetically fantastical yet ultimately tedious film that may occasionally please the tots in the audience. However, it will leave adults far less enchanted."
‑ Kristal Cooper, We Got This Covered
"The ill fit between Mirror Mirror's screenplay and its director's sensibilities dooms the comedic fairy tale from the outset."
‑ Mark Pfeiffer, Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema
"'Mirror, Mirror' is a trippy version of the Snow White story."
‑ Richard Roeper, Richard Roeper.com
"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."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"Mirror Mirror features over-indulgent story moments and, at times, hammy performances but still delivers a mostly fun riff on the Snow White story."
‑ Ben Kendrick, ScreenRant
"The tone is campy and fun, although Roberts is better with the lighthearted dark comedy side of her role. Still, the script is light and witty, poking a lot of fun at itself and the visual artistry is absolutely gorgeous to look at."
‑ Eric Melin, Scene-Stealers.com
"It's never clear what "Mirror Mirror" is saying about the Snow White legend, or about fairy tales in general. It feels like a narrative without a story."
‑ James Plath, Movie Metropolis
"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."
‑ Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
"Who wants to see a fairy tale that weighs a ton? Mirror Mirror reflects badly on everyone involved."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"While it may not be as memorable as his other good projects, Singh has delivered a film that should delight audiences of all ages because of the timelessness of the story and the spin the writers have put on it."
‑ Jeff Beck, Examiner.com
"Mirror Mirror is not a travesty. It's missing something though. The whole film plays like a Muppet movie with the actual Muppets cut out."
‑ William Bibbiani, CraveOnline
"The Queen sees herself in the magic mirror which is a nice twist. But it's a slightly altered version of herself. The movie is like that, too -just a little bit off while trying hard to be "on":"
‑ Nathaniel Rogers, Film Experience
