Movie Review: Mirror Mirror

One of the most beloved stories of all time is coming to life in the motion picture event for the whole family. A fresh and funny retelling of the Snow White legend, Mirror Mirror features breakout star, Lilly Collins (The Blind Side) as Snow White, a princess in exile, and Oscar-winner Julia Roberts, as the evil Queen who ruthlessly rules her captured kingdom. Seven courageous rebel dwarfs join forces with Snow White as she fights to reclaim her birthright and win her Prince in this magical comedy filled with jealousy, romance, and betrayal that will capture the hearts and imaginations of audiences the world over. In the film also stars Armie Hammer (The Social Network) as the Prince, and Nathan Lane (The Birdcage) as the hapless and bungling servant to the Queen.

This was one of the movies that I, badly, wanted to see. The rest of the crew, unfortunately, didn't want to join me (because they thought Snow White and the Huntsman was more worthy), but I managed to find some friends who were as enthousiastic as I was.

What is there in this movie not to love??
I loved the costumes, they were huge and extravagant and possibly, uncomfortable to those wearing them, but the also were so beautiful and rich.
The story is not so based on the fairytale, but it was a fresh point of view that was very funny. The graphics were awesome. Every single scene was created in a studio, so they were able to create something spectacular and beautiful.
As for the acting, many people say that Julia Roberts was awful, but I loved her. She matched the mood of the film as the evil Queen, who, generally speaking, wasn't that bad.
Same thing applies for Lilly Collins as the Snow White. She brings to life a whole new Snow White, far from a princess-like girl, who's not afraid of fight for the kingdom and her love.
The guys in this film suffer. The Prince has to deal with multiple hummiliation and the Brighton has to deal with the selfish and needing Queen all the time.
Lastly, the dwarfs. Those guys were teachers and philosophers and one of the funniest aspects in this movie.

Bottom line, if you haven't figured it out yet, I loved it. It was colorful and light and  I enjoyed every minute of it. Thankfully, I had my friend near me, telling me to stay put, or otherwise I would totally missed the song at the end. So, go and see it, if you haven't yet, and if you have a different opinion, please let me now.


  1. I have to say i hated the movie. I would have put it like 2 stars?

    I find it really boring. I watched it in two parts. The acting was bad, and Julia Roberts was terrible. The whole story felt so wrong, and not funny at all. It had huge mistakes on Snow White's aspect. Her training was all so wrong. I will admit the dwarves were a little fun but that is all. And it was predictable and easy to win.

    The whole place looked studio based (same scenes from the forest all the time) in a really bad way. It just didn't feel real to me.

  2. Just barely ever made me laugh, except for when Hammer was on-screen. Now he was somewhat funny. Good review Nina.


There is lot of spam lately at the posts, so for a while i will put up the comment moderation. Sorry for that, i really don't like it but i thought it might stop the spamming. It will be down soon enough! Thanks a lot :)
