Beautiful Creatures Reviews

Overall, Beautiful Creatures is a welcome change to Twilight and a film that is actually enjoyable.

Beautiful Creatures also has a spiritual side, which will strike some viewers as affecting and others as cheap insurance to draw in audiences who would otherwise eschew a film that shows magic as even a sometimes good thing.

You might think of Beautiful Creatures as just another Twilight wannabe. I prefer to think of it as the showcase that a great British actress has been waiting for.

What does matter is that Beautiful Creatures bristles with a catchy combo of wit, warmth and unworldly urgency that was never to be found in the Twilight movies.

The history that is supposed to hold the lovers in a web of human and supernatural connections owes more to the History Channel than history books. But the film taps into an unexpected understanding of agency.

Though Beautiful Creatures is occasionally simplistic, and definitely goofy, it's also a genuinely compassionate story of what it's like to make your first adult decisions in a world where nothing is black or white.

The massive plus this gothic teen romance has over Twilight is that it's frequently funny - intentionally.
May 23, 2016
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.

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.
July 13, 2013
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.

I wanted to know more about the Casters, and hopefully we'll get a sequel to round out the mythos better.
May 22, 2013
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.

Who would've thought that Emo Witches and Satanic Southern MILFS could end up being so entertaining?
March 6, 2013
...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.

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)
February 26, 2013
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.
February 24, 2013
LaGravenese elicits some wonderfully hammy turns, particularly from Irons and Thompson, although a tighter edit wouldn't have gone amiss
February 23, 2013
While this movie easily has more charm than the cynically produced Twilight films, it somehow lacks the charisma.
