Mirror Mirror (2012) - Julia Roberts as the Evil Queen? Really?
6 June 2012 | by nickmesafilmsSee all my reviews

This isn't the first time that we have seen a re-telling of the classic Snow White story, from the Brothers Grimm fairytale, to the classic Disney animated film. In "Mirror Mirror", there are some moments that kids will have fun with. Not that I have a problem with kids' movies, but "Mirror Mirror" is one of the most ridiculous takes of the Snow White story that I've ever seen! I would say that this movie provides family-friendly entertainment that the kids would enjoy, but that doesn't help this movie from being cheesy, idiotic, unfunny, and undeniably corny. Julia Roberts delivers one of the weakest performances of her career, as she tries to deliver a menacing performance as the Evil Queen. But we don't believe that her character is actually evil, when she's instead sad, lonely, and maniacally insane. The beautiful Lily Collins seemed adorable as Snow White, and she really stayed true to her role, unlike the other characters in the film. Armie Hammer, who was really good in "The Social Network", delivers a horrid performance as the Prince, not by judging his acting, but by judging those completely forced moments he was asked to be in. Director Tarsem Singh gives this tale a more trippy, and awkward treatment, rather than a family-fun treatment. The art direction is magical, and the costumes are colorful, but they couldn't help this movie's script. I was left incredibly mad by the humor in this movie. This movie delivers a few weird innuendos, unfunny moments, and incredibly forced moments. It feels more like an adult movie, disguised as a kids' movie. The movie was a little too cheesy and corny, and some of those moments went way too far. Like, the scene when the Queen gives the Prince a love potion, accidentally turning him into a human puppy. That was a pretty awkward moment, but kids will like it. When this movie tries to be heartwarming, and trying to deliver a message that will bring emotion, it sadly just doesn't work. Then, the ending happened, and it ruined me for life. That's the thing I hated! The kids are being forced into watching this because this is a Snow White movie. Do they even realize that there's already a Snow White movie for kids, called "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs"? That movie meant a lot to me in my childhood, because that was the movie that sparked my interest in film, in the first place. But, "Mirror Mirror" is just a wild excuse to ruin my childhood. Maybe your kids are able to enjoy something like this, but just wait till they grow up, and watch it again after so long. Trust me, you'll understand! "Mirror Mirror", in my review, "a painfully weak, and ridiculously flat film that angers".
