Trailer not representative of the actual movie

First off if all you know if this movie is the Trailers, go learn a bit about the movie before you watch it or prepare to be disappointed as I was. That being said, it wasn't a bad movie. It was a fairly good teen romance movie all things considered, what it was not was a fun action filled magical romp.

I remember watching The Hunger Games and thinking, wow, they did not stick with the source material and missing all the important stuff. Compared to Beautiful Creatures, that movie was a masterpiece. As a fan of the Castor Chronicles, I have to say DO NOT SEE THIS MOVIE. If you loved the books, you will HATE this movie. I know no book to movie adaption will ever be like the book. But this movie didn't even have the essence that made Beautiful Creatures such a good book.The direction is awful. The script is HORRIBLE. Just. don't see this movie. These people don't deserve your money.

VERY DIFFERENT from the book!

I didn't like the choices of actors for the characters of the book. I really didn't like that they "merged" characters - the housekeeper and the librarian! Ethan's elderly aunts, the dog Bo Radley, and Ethan's father were never seen. That doesn't even cover so many changes that the screenplay made in the story. I'd really like my money back on this one.

Probably a miss cast of main character. Didn't connect with her at all. It was ok, enjoyed other characters in movie, it got boring but picked up, then kinda fell apart in one scene. Wait for on demand.
