Courtney of The Daily Rotation wrote, "Movie remakes of any sort often make me skeptical, especially when the remake follows a string of successive failures. In the case of Snow White and the Huntsman, the most recent attempt at revisiting the fairy tale proved to be unfulfilling, though the previews seemed promising. I have to admit I had reservations, as I was never a fan of the Snow White story. The animated Disney version was always my least favorite Disney princess movie (probably because I didn’t really like Snow’s hair or shrill voice), and any time it has ever been revisited, it has failed tremendously at becoming anything worth watching (most recently with Mirror, Mirror). Still, the trailer looked like this fairy tale was taking a pretty interesting turn, and becoming more of an action/adventure-style flick, rather than a dopey comedy."
