My friend and her daughter have read the book so they were so excited to see this movie. I told them that the reviews said people who read the book would be disappointed. Well they were right! My friends did not care for the way the story was told in film. I thought the movie was okay but I thought the editing could be better. The storyline seemed disjointed. but the plot was good and loved the special effects. My friend and her daughter now question if they will see anymore of these movies. Maybe they(directors) should have done it in 2 parts. That way they could have stayed true to the book. Just a heads up that if you want to read the book wait till after you see this movie! LOL

I am a book nerd so of course I read the books. Went to see the movie earlier and I am utterly disappointed!! Marian is NOT in the movie! WTF? Ethan cooking for himself.....he NEVER did that in the book. I don't want to give away anymore spoilers, but there were LOTS of changes in the movie that did NOT happen in the first book. I wish I could get my money back! Ugh.

Went and saw this movie with my husband on Valentine's Day, and was extremely disappointed. Hubby liked it, but he didn't read the books. I read all 4 books and I think that's why I didn't like it as much. The books are so much better, than the movie. I went and saw it a second time with my mom last night, and thought it wasn't that bad. Is it better than Twilight or Harry Potter? No. Would I buy the movie? Probably, since I have the books. Those of you who haven't read the books, please watch the movie, before you read them. You will be disappointed by all the scenes that should have been in the movie, but were cut out or not filmed at all.

I went to see this movie cause I thought I would enjoy it... I did enjoy it but not as much as I would have thought i would. At heart I knew it was a love story with some witch action. The love story is correct but don't feel natural kinda feels forced. There were some witch magic but very very rare in this film. They made it sound like the evil witch of the movie powerful but she was pretty pathetic at the end when the confrontation came. Overall this movie is so so. If you got nothing else to see then check it out... but wait till it comes out for rental.

Beautiful Creatures is a movie that is worth waiting to see on DVD. Didn't expect it to be more of a cute love story than a movie about witch craft.
