Mirror Mirror

Posted on: June 20, 2012

Another retelling of the classic tale of Snow White. While Snow White and Huntsman was an action fantasy film. Mirror Mirror is more comedy.

 

It basically follows the same formula.

When Snow White’s mother dies, the king was raised Snow White (Lily Collins) by himself. But he left that she needed a mother so he married again. One day, the king leaves to fight a great evil that has invaded the land but never came back.

Ten years later, Queen Gertrude (Julia Roberts) has bankrupt the kingdom with her extravagant ways. Snow White has grown into a beautiful young lady but is trapped in the palace because her step mother fears she would be a threat to everything. Snow White sneaks out of the palace to see what has become of the kingdom and it’s pretty bad.

 

In the forest, she meets Prince Alcott (Armie Hammer) and his companion, who have been robbed by bandits (seven dwarfs). Snow White  sets them free and they go their separate ways, but you can clearly see they were really into each other. When the Queen learns about the Prince she plans to marry him so she can solve her finanical problems. She hosts a ball in hopes to win him over but he only has eyes for Snow White. The Queen has her man servant Brighton (Nathan Lane) take Snow White to the forest and kill her. But he couldn’t go through with it and let’s her go and tell her to run.

 

There Snow White meets the Seven Dwarfs: Grimm, Butcher, Wolf, Napoleon, Half Pint, Grub and Chuckles. They take her in and teach her how to fight so she can take on the the Queen and take back the kingdom.

I liked this movie. I mean, I loved Snow White and the Huntsman because it was action packed. This film was more fun and playful.

Once again I’m glad they didn’t make Snow White all sweet and defenseless. Instead they made her into a fighter. I liked the part where she was sword fighting with the Alcott. They were fighting and flirting at the same time. It was cute.

I was also impressed with the dwarfs. They may be small but they can fight. I loved those special stilts that made to make it look like they were really tall. I felt bad for Alcott though. He was robbed twice by these guys. They took his money, his clothes and his dignity. LOL!

Julia Roberts was all right as the Queen. When I think of the evil queen from classic story I’m thinking of someone more vicious. Gertrude was more of a diva than Satan.

All in all, not a bad movie.
