"Rupert Sanders has come out of the world of commercials and short films to direct Snow White and the Huntsman, and he does a decent job. While the script is pretty tedious and the actors overdo it a bit, Sanders' vision for the film remains constant and he turns in a great looking film. The problems with Snow White and the Huntsman do not fall solely on its director; the film is unevenly paced, unnecessarily wordy and overly melodramatic. A more experienced director may have been able to solve some of these problems, but not all of them. "
