Beautiful Creatures Reviews
An honest effort at trying to jump in on the YA novels into movies train. The acting was fine from everyone, the effects were decent(nothing really special). The plot was a little been there, seen that, and the script wasn't really doing the movie any good either. Overall the movie just seemed generic, but it had likable characters and a feel good campy feel, but also falls short due to a generic plot, and a weak script.
Alden Ehrenreich and Alice Englert's push-and-pull chemistry is remarkably sensual. Ehrenreich really shines as the squinty shucksidoodles Ethan, exhibiting folksy humor and revealing unexpected depth in the scene where Macon hexes him to plot out his disappointment of a future. Emmy Rossum is also a devilish vixen, especially in her claiming scene. Emma Thompson seems utterly out of place, seeming neither southern enough nor glamorous enough.
