This year's second live-action version of Snow White re-imagines the fairy tale as a dark, rain-lashed, mud-spattered epic, full of siege engines, burning villages, and all sorts of borrowings from the work of Tolkien and C S Lewis.

It's certainly spectacular, but it's also a glum, pompous trudge of a film. Snow White herself (Kristen Stewart) is a wilting wallflower, and we don't even meet the dwarves until halfway through.
