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.

Highly Disapointed

I read the book before the premiere and was extremyl disapointed to find that i did not recognize the story line. You would think that the movie was a pre-qual almost. i mean one of the major notions of the book was that Lena and Ethan could communicate telepathically. In the classroom, Lena was supposed to be sharpening her pencil when the windows broke and nobody but her was really hurt. not to mention there were more incidents like the Winter formal. And what happend to the Sweet Sixteen Party concert. and Ethan knew about Link and Ridley. So really what the hell did i watch yesterday cause that was not Beautiful Creatures. as for the Critic comments. I agree the accents were terrible. No cratch that they were etrocious. But for the most part i like the acting/ I just wished that the director stuck to the realy story cause the book was fantastic and i look foward to reading Chaos, Darkness, and Redemption.

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.

if you read the books, prepare to be disappointed

they changed some key elements to continue with sequels, which i think they sabotaged themselves for. it was slow-moving, lacked real concrete plot in comparison to the books. even twilight had a better screenplay conversion the first time around, but it may be just me. ive been looking forward to this movie ever since they started filming last year and i was just disappointed by the screenplay as a whole. if you didn't read the books, you will probably enjoy it. the plot is JUST okay for the lamen person.
