Mirror Mirror

What I liked:

  • The opening animation sequence was delightful.
  • Lily Collins is lovely.
  • Armie Hammer was wonderful when under the Queen's spell.
  • A nice supporting cast of Mare Winningham, Jordan Prentice, Mark Povinelli, Joe Gnoffo, Danny Woodburn, Sebastian Saraceno, Martin Klebba, Ronald Lee Clark and Sean Bean!
  • Creative costumes.
  • There's a modern twist to the movie.

What I didn't like:
  • Julia Roberts was just ok as the evil Queen.  
  • Nathan Lane wasn't used to his full potential.
  • The age differences between Collins and Hammer and Hammer and Roberts make you remember why this is a fairy tale.
  • This is not a movie for adults.  The kids may like the lame jokes and theatrical fighting but it will bore anyone who knows better.
  • The musical number at the end was not good.

Grade: C
