For those still mourning the end of the Twilight series, here's something to get you back on your feet - another supernatural teen love story, with witches and warlocks replacing vampires and werewolves.

It's a Southern-fried supernatural teen romance that's all empty calories and rich taste-just the thing for a Valentine's Day release.

It never finds any kind of balance, going from tasteful but kind of dull to inane and sort of captivating.

There's an air of contempt to the picture, with a lot of bored, talented people openly acknowledging that they probably should be doing something more productive with their time.

Beautiful Creatures is like the Twilight movies but with a chaperone making sure the boys dance a foot apart from the girls.

A superficial supernatural story that aimlessly seeks to follow in the footsteps of 'Twilight.'

May tap into familiar themes of forbidden love oppression, but it's the unique texture of the world, along with the phenomenal cast surrounding it that makes this the most promising teen supernatural drama yet.

Surprisingly peppy and charming -- not transcendent of its narrowly defined genre, but a worthwhile entry in it, and not a bad film all around.

A startlingly good exploration of good, evil and the perseverance of love.

Beautiful Creatures is a half-filled glass of teen pablum...

I wanted to know more about the Casters, and hopefully we'll get a sequel to round out the mythos better.

This is a perfectly solid coming-of-age fantasy, closer in spirit to 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' than to the recent spate of Stephenie Meyer clones.

I found myself growing incredibly bored by the film. Nothing was new or fresh enough to earn my interest.

Who would've thought that Emo Witches and Satanic Southern MILFS could end up being so entertaining?

Any hope of tapping into the Twilight vibe is pretty much neutered by the film's haphazard storyline, stuttering pace and inordinate length.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

...much weirder, cooler and knowing, more in league with something like The Perks of Being a Wallflower than anything Stephenie Meyer will ever create. It doesn't aim higher; it aims in several competing, uncharted directions.

Trying to become the next "Twilight," it is a better film in most respects than any entry in that franchise - although that's damning it with faint praise.

Director Richard LaGravenese helms this dark-magic romantic fantasy, and it's surprisingly better than the unfair label with which it's been slapped (yep, you know the one: it just wants to be another damn Twilight)
| Original Score: 3.5/5

There are some impressive special effects in the film, but these are used sparingly. The main story is the love affair, and it is surrounded by so much acting talent that the rest of the story works.

We rush through the background of the characters with the focus more on building the lovey-dovey relationship between Ethan and Lena.
