Worth Seeing if You Like This Kind of Thing
While Beautiful Creatures was certainly better than I was expecting, it was still not as good as it could have been.
The story was the typical supernatural Romeo and Juilet that we've come to expect from teen paranormal novels, though there were a few pleasant twists.
And while the styling was absolutely stunning, the best part of the film really was the costuming and set design, I really wish that film makers would spend more time on their CGI effects if they insist on using them. There were some really beautiful or disturbing moments in the film, only to be ruined by cheesy visual effects.
I very much enjoy paranormal romance, so I enjoyed this mostly by default, but if it's not your thing, you could probably skip this with no trouble.
