There was very little resemblance to the book; I suppose, if you hadn't read it you wouldn't be disappointed. The actors did well but, it wasn't what I expected to see. Read the book instead.

If you've read Beautiful Creatures expect to be disappointed. My granddaughter and I couldn't believe all the changes made to a book that both of us really enjoyed. If you have never read the book, you would probably like this movie. As a stand alone movie its a definite DVD rental. For those of you who've read the book, Lena and Ethan do not communicate with their minds in the movie, there is no Boo-Radley, Amma is also the keeper of the Caster Library, Lincoln is seldom seen and doesn't have his own band, The dance is mentioned but not portrayed, the showdown with the school board and Link's mom takes place in a church and only Uncle Macon shows up to defend Lena and in the movie this is when Sarafine reveals herself to Macon while in the guise of Link's mom, and in the end Ethan doesn't remember Lena and what happened on her 16th birthday. Disappointing.

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.

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.

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.
