When Gans locks in on his leads, Beauty and the Beast soars like few other live-action fairy tale movies have in recent years.

... its scenery is stunning, the costumes making it worth a few watches along. It's worth seeing but may cause some issues to those looking for a deeper story ...

It's definitely a movie meant to entertain and astound the senses visually.

These scenes must be seen to be believed and they may have some of the worst CGI I've seen in a live action film.

Bolder than its upcoming Disney-reimagined competition.

Gans and co-writer Sandra Vo-Anh deliver a 'Beauty' of a package that befittingly wallows in the shadows of previous 'Beast' editions. This fairy tale falls short of its entertaining goal despite its pleasing, tangy wrapping.

An unexpected success; a film that's received little to no promotion here in Peru, but that ended up being really good. [Full review in Spanish]

The story flows with difficulty and disperses into subplots that distract... [Full review in Spanish]

What's missing is any sense of romantic attraction or bond of friendship between Belle and the Beast.
February 21, 2017
Works better as cinematic spectacle than as compassionate romantic drama. Fortunately, their afterthought of a romance dampens but does not spoil the movie's cumulatively handsome spell.

Gans isn't especially concerned with the outcome this coupling, instead reveling in overwrought and often bloated storytelling, lush details and some of the year's most unnerving CGI.

This 2014 adaptation of the French fairy tale looks spectacular, with vibrant landscapes and lavish 18th-century costumes, but... [Léa Seydoux, as the fair maiden, and Vincent Cassell] are stiff and perfunctory.

At times, Beauty and the Beast seems more like a demented Asian movie than a French one, to its merit. A quantifiably bad movie, but also certifiably grandiose.
October 6, 2016
It's beastly.
September 23, 2016
It's a fun, beautiful drama that's a good way to while away two hours. But if Gans had been able to dial it back just a bit, he might have had something even better.
September 23, 2016
Gans and Co. have given us a sumptuous and highly watchable take on the story that is a more than worthy work in its own right.
September 22, 2016
The film is most acceptable when it sticks to its beauty-and-beast dynamic. Even then it's too dizzying and grandiose and the chemistry between the lead characters is pretty much nil.
September 22, 2016
Belongs to the most rote category of interpretations, hinting at nothing darker than a fascination with sulking bad boys bored by wealth.
September 21, 2016
...it's rich in visual imagination. If only there were a little more faith in the visuals' ability to tell the story by themselves.
September 21, 2016
As gorgeous as the movie, it ultimately remains a highly detailed painting positioned behind velvet ropes, unable to connect beyond winning craftsmanship.
