This remake squeaks by because it does a decent amount of justice to the original, and since the original is a masterpiece... well, your heart can't help but melt, can it?

Take your niece, your daughter your next door neighbor's daughter, heck your mom -- and relive this tale as old as time. Believe me, no one will be gloomy or complaining while the flatware's entertaining.

But the film is so good, so magical, and so well-directed that a lot of those problems felt like minor nitpicks by the time its two-and-a-half-hour runtime had completed.

Enchanting affection is woven into every visually lush scene.

Disney's effort to turn their animated wonders into live action slogs continues apace with Beauty and the Beast, an ugly mess of cartoonish CGI.
May 14, 2018
Still, even though we know how the story pans out, Condon's picture is a pleasure to watch, thus proving, if you ever doubted, that a thing of Disney can be a joy forever.

Beauty and the Beast hits all the key notes you'd expect while fixing a few of the original's less-logical affectations that wouldn't fly so well in a modern live-action movie.

There's a lot of brave Hermione Granger in the new Belle. [Full review in Spanish]

Bill Condon keeps thing visually interesting enough that you'll still be engaged even while suppressing your urge to sing along with every word.

A lot of this movie feels like more, but not necessarily better. It just feels like extra.
February 20, 2018
As a whole, the production doesn't hold a candelabrum to Kenneth Branagh's lovely 2015 version of Cinderella, to say nothing of the 1991 Beauty original.
February 15, 2018
Nearly every detail is lifted verbatim from the earlier picture, minus the finesse or joy. This is not a movie at all, it's an overzealous dress rehearsal.

It's a very excellent, faithful adaptation, with a couple of differences in a live-action version.
January 23, 2018
While there are a number of things to recommend within this live-action retelling of 'a tale as old as time' ... the movie, as a whole, feels strangely inert.

This is the best live action remake of a Disney movie, if not one of the best remakes of anything ever.

Our family watched Beauty and the Beast separately . . . but we all had the same reaction: We loved it. Disney excels in creating movie worlds, and to create this one they decided against straight live-action and incorporated 1700 visual effects.

This might be a "tale as old as time" but it is the new technology that makes this better than the original

... extremely entertaining. [Full review in Spanish]

Aforementioned imperfections notwithstanding, Condon and his team have breathed new life into a "tale as old as time."
