Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs 8 out of 5 stars

America's first feature length animated film

Reviewed by: jamieguo, November 09, 2002

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs set a new standard in the movie industry by being one of the first full length animated films shown. It also deserves kudos for helping animated movies become popular and helping Disney achieve great success.

Snow White therefore sets the standard in many ways that would be emulated over and over again by Disney and less successfully by other companies.

Plot- Like many Disney films, this is based on a familiar story and follows the old Grimm tale more closely than the new versions of fairy tales, like Beauty and the Beast or The Little Mermaid does. It also introduces some revisions to the story, such as in the fairy tale, the witch dances to her death in red hot shoes. Here, her own evil is her downfall. Another key revision to the orginal story is the fact that the stepmother (originally the mother in Grimm's earliest versions) tries to kill Snow White three times, with the last time being the apple.

Characters - In Disney movies, there are always distinct casts of characters, the usually stoic hero and heroine, some wise, good character who helps them, comic relief characters and an evil character who has evil helpers.
Snow White's character is this film suffers much from age. She is very much a product of the 1930's, as evident by her mannerisms and her voice which is very childlike for a young woman. She is probably no more marked by age than the comtemporary aspects of movies like Aladdin will be, when judged forty years from now. The Seven Dwarfs, are defined by their names, except that Dopey has the added characteristic of not talking. Doc is the wise old character here, who cautions the not too intelligent Snow White. Dopey and many of the other dwarves serve as the comic relief. Perhaps the most compelling character (as is often the case) is that of the villian, the witch. The Prince serves only as a plot device to save Snow White.

Music - The songs also set the standard for the many musical numbers that Disney insisted that every movie have until recently. There is "Hi-Ho" as the dwarves work, and "Whistle While You Work," as Snow White cleans the house among others. They're entertaining and helps further the characters and storyline.

Animation: There are many animation scenes here that are truly classic, mostly involving the witch. Snow White's flight through a forest dark and alive with her imagination is also very memorable. The animation of characters is very fluid and well done.

All in all, a must see for animation movie buffs. Kids will enjoy the dwarve's antics as well.
