If you've read the books and are hoping for a movie version of the interesting, funny and heartwarming love story of Ethan and Lena, you will not get it. The movie is so unlike the book that "loosely based" is generous. There are major plot changes, important characters missing, alteration of characters...it's just an entirely different story. On top of it, the casting was terrible. "Emily Asher" and "Link" were the only two characters cast fairly well. And, although Alden E. looks nothing like "Ethan Wate", he was adorable and likeable. Those three characters are the only thing that slightly saved the movie from absolute awfulness.
And the movie itself, even if I had not read the book, was confusing and poorly written. I READ the book and didn't understand the "curse" in the movie (especially because it was so different from the book).
Despite some good actors and a few funny one-liners, do not bother seeing this if you want to see the movie version of the book.

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.

This is a supernatural teenage love story [No , It's not a 'Twilight' sequel] that takes place in South Carolina [But , It could be trying to attract the 'Twilight' audience] . It's based on a series of books [4 , to the best of my knowledge] about a 15 year old girl that is a witch [but they prefer the term , Caster] and on her 16th birthday , she becomes either good or evil [there is a countdown of the days on her wrist that looks like a tattoo] . Alice plays the young Caster that falls in love with Alden but is afraid that she will hurt him when she changes [she is afraid she will turn evil] . Jeremy is her protective uncle and Emma plays the mother of one of Alden's friends .
If you like the 'Twilight' movies you should enjoy this one , too [I thought it was a little better than the 'Twilight' movies] . I would probably buy this on DVD .
