A reimagining of “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” (also listed as “Snow White & the Red Shoes”), with the wicked stepmother (voiced by Gina Gershon) desperate to regain her youth through a magical pair of shoes that end up on the feet of her stepdaughter Snow (voiced by Chloë Grace Moretz). She will stop at nothing to retrieve them and Snow enlists the help of seven legendary men, who are under a curse that only a kiss from a beautiful woman will undo, and are unrecognizable. Also with the voices of Sam Claflin, Jim Rash, Patrick Warburton, Simon Kassianides and Frederik Hamel. Directed by Sung-ho Hong, Moo-Hyun Jang & Young Sik Uhm. [Running Time: 1:32]

Red Shoes and the Seven Dwarfs SEX/NUDITY 2

 – A man and a young woman kiss. A young woman kisses a man and he revives. A man puckers up his lips thinking that a young woman is going to kiss him when she blows a flower petal off his cheek. Men ask a young woman for a kiss in several scenes (hoping to break a curse); when one man asks, the young woman slaps him in the face. A young woman kisses a card and gives it to a man; the man kisses the card hoping that it will break a spell (it does not). A young woman hugs several men a few times. A young woman holds onto a man as they fly on a robot attached to a flying magic broom.
 Seven men talk about “what women want.” A man accuses another man of always “hitting on women.” We hear that seven men can break a curse by getting a kiss from the most beautiful woman. A woman puts on shoes that she has picked from a tree and she moans as she anticipates a change to overcome her (she does not change; the moaning sounds almost sexual).
 A young woman wears a low-cut dress that reveals partial cleavage. A mermaid with starfish covering her breasts is shown during the end credits.

Red Shoes and the Seven Dwarfs VIOLENCE/GORE 3

 – A giant wooden creature hammers on the ground next to a young woman and a man and they slide down a hill; the man crashes onto a rock hitting his crotch and he moans, he zaps the creature with magic and other creatures throw boulders at the man and the young woman as they run away; the man zaps creatures and flips around them as they try to hit him and one creature is thrown off a cliff, another explodes and the man is slammed into a wall then held by a creature as it falls off a cliff and into water below where he is trapped under the creature and the young woman dives in to save him. A young woman goes to dark woods alone and a giant rabbit follows her; a man zaps the rabbit, it chases the young woman and the man and the rabbit pounce on the man, another man jumps on the rabbit and knocks it down, and the man pretends to be pinned under its arm hoping for the young woman to help him. A man tackles a woman and holds her as they fall and we see an explosion; a young woman cries until the unconscious man is lifted to the surface and we see him with char on his face as he lies motionless (he revives). Two large guards chase a young woman through a market and they trip over fruit carts; the young woman gets trapped in an alley with no exit, where other guards with spears enter and hold her while teasing her and tossing her shoes back and forth until she head-butts one guard and a man zaps the other guards leaving them unconscious on the ground and the young woman steps on one guard’s hand as she leaves the alley unharmed. A large rabbit picks a young woman up and hops away with her. A tree grows larger and grabs a man, wraps him with its limbs, he breaks free and the limbs chase him; he is then slammed into a pillar and held by the arms and the legs and the tree begins to pull his limbs, until others cut him loose and a man breaks a mirror attached to the tree and the tree crumbles.
 Guards charge a structure and a young woman punches a man when he grabs her, two guards hit two men, and four men fight with the guards using magic swords and a large guard swings a mace and a sledgehammer hitting one man and breaking his sword; the large guard hits a large rabbit with his hammer and a large robot moves into the area and fights the remaining guards, it launches itself into the air pulling guards behind it on a chain, and they fall back to the ground where cannons are fired at the robot knocking it down, another cannon is fired toward a young woman and a man jumps to push her out of the way of the cannonball, which is lodged in a wall behind them. A cannonball is pulled out of the wall of a structure that then crumbles and collapses onto several guards gathered to fight seven men and a young woman. A flashback shows several men defeating a dragon and saving a princess and when they think she’s actually a witch they zap her and she puts a curse on them turning them into small people with green skin. A fairy fishes a prince out of water, he spits water on her and she turns him into a dwarf.
 A woman threatens a young woman to eat an apple, “Or watch him die.” A woman threatens a man and tells him to eat an apple, which he does, and he changes into a giant wooden creature. A woman throws a shoe hitting a small bear-like creature and its head falls off; another little bear picks up the head and it and two others run away. A man throws a carrot at another man and hits him in the head. A woman becomes angry and orders guards to “get her,” as a girl flies away on a broom. A man hits a young woman in the head and she falls unconscious. A reference is made to the cave of despair. A young woman is frightened by the disappearance of her father and she searches for him throughout the movie.
 A young woman slaps a man in the face when he asks her for a kiss (we see him later with a reddened handprint on his cheek). A book falls off a shelf and hits a man on the head. A woman hits a man in the face with flowers when he looks at another woman. A man tries to remove a young woman’s shoes using a blowtorch and a hammer and a saw (they do not come off). A threat is made that someone wants to “Punch him when he is pretty.”
 A man and a young woman fly through the sky on a robot attached to a flying magic broom until they crash into a tree and fall to the ground unharmed. A large craggy tree grows and produces a magic mirror that speaks to a woman about the most beautiful person in the land. A girl climbs a rope into a room where she finds a book; a small bear-like creature flies on a broom through the room like a security detail, and then leaves. Seven men stand over and watch a young woman sleeping and she wakes up alarmed. A young woman struggles to take off a pair of shoes, and when she does her appearance changes.
 A man yells about being unpopular. A woman speaks to a tree hoping that it will produce magical shoes that will give her eternal beauty. We see wanted posters and a missing person poster in a few scenes. A giant rabbit is shown locked in a cell. A sculptor accidentally puts a gash in a statue when he is startled by a young woman’s beauty; he reacts and breaks the head off the statue.
 A man eats dog food.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
