Review of ‘Mirror Mirror’ Amazon Streaming Version: “Easily as dark as Snow White and the Huntsman!” – M.R.

Review of ‘Mirror Mirror’ Amazon Streaming Version

From Wiki:

Mirror Mirror is a 2012 comedy fantasy film based on the fairy tale “Snow White” by the Brothers Grimm. It is directed by Tarsem Singh and stars Lily Collins, Julia Roberts, Armie Hammer, Nathan Lane, and Sean Bean. It is unrelated to the Gregory Maguire novel Mirror, Mirror.

Our Take: This version of Snow White is easily as dark as Snow White and the Huntsman. And just as visually stunning, (in parts.) Julia Roberts plays a good evil step mother. Snow White is played well too, as are the seven dwarves. It is the male characters here that were lacking. Again, Amazon streaming delivers hi quality.

I recommend this for fantasy loving guys to pick as a sofa date movie. Enough romance for the gals, enough dark twisted fun for everyone else, especially the kids.

3.5 stars.
