there is not much magic being cast here

For the most part, it's business as usual, as Beautiful Creatures obediently follows the young-adult fiction blueprint.

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.'

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

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

Any hope of tapping into the Twilight vibe is pretty much neutered by the film's haphazard storyline, stuttering pace and inordinate length.

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.

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

Alice Englert and Alden Ehrenreich give performances that make this thing worth seeing. Given that the story is preposterous, it's entertaining enough to keep you awake most of the time.

Interesting settings and costumes plus plus weird ghostly stuff can't save this fantasy romance. Still, Alden Ehrenreich and Alice Englert seem sincere and committed to their co-starring roles here.

Twilight wannabe is lushly photographed drivel

The problem is tone. LaGravenese lets the English have their heads, while the young Americans moon and kiss and frown like they mean it.

It is the encompassing mythology that is muddied and murky, complete with misogynistic renderings of female sexuality that the mystical packaging can't overcome.
February 22, 2013
"Beautiful Creatures" is a supernatural southern-fried teen romance that's a bit on the corny side and far from scary.
February 21, 2013
Oozing with the angst of a teenager that has just been banned from using Facebook for a week

The big stars act silly, and the unknown stars have no spark

A semi-successful slice of Southern gothic panto.
