I use to adore this version of snow white whilst i was younger on video,so recently watched it again at an older age. It follows the same storyline of Disney's version of snow white, however has differences (such as the dwarfs names and the queen attempts to kill her in various, but child friendly,ways), therefore its not a complete copy of it. What i like about the movie is that its such a sweet film, so its perfect to watch as an easy going movie and only lasts 45 minutes so you don't become bored easily. Overall i like it, although it doesn't meet the standards of Disney's version, and i would watch it again. I would also say its perfect if your looking for a family movie to watch on a Sunday, or rainy day.
I do like Jetlag's output in general, they are cute, entertaining animations that may have limitations(some same, some different) but even at their worst they are watchable. As far as Jetlag animations go I do prefer Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Magic Gift of the Snowman and Heidi but found myself disappointed for example in Alice in Wonderland. But this Snow White is still a nice version. Though it does have a couple of debits, for example I never could stand the Prince, definitely the most embarrassingly ridiculous male heroic character of the Jetlag canon and his corny dialogue provides some unintentional humour. The animation is a mixed bag for me, the facial expressions are much better than in Alice in Wonderland and there are some vibrant moments, but there are also instances where the colours could be seen as too warm and occasionally perhaps a little crude. However, the story is closer to the fairytale than Disney's(which is one of my all time favourites and I do admit I prefer it), including all of the Queen's attempts to kill Snow White, and is very charming. There is some lovely messaging such as to do with love and dreams, and the songs are sweet and catchy, my favourites being A Little Bit of Magic. The dwarfs are adorable and zany, Snow White in a way is kinder and more sympathetic than Disney's and the Queen is beautiful and imposing, even scary in her three guises. The voice acting is solid enough. Overall, I like this version, not my favourite by all means but a worthy entry in an entertaining series of low-budget animations. 7/10 Bethany Cox
