I enjoyed it but I didn't read the book

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.

Oddly reminiscent of recent vampire movies

I liked the story line, the special effects, and acting. I didn't care for the ending. It felt like it needed more. I will buy it on DVD, just not until it is on sale. Oh, this movie is great for 13+ years old viewers. I did take my 12 year old, but thought it was a bit risky in a few scenes.

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

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.
