Everything else remains entirely the same out of either laziness or a fear of redneck audiences screaming at the changing world around them.

The new Beauty and the Beast may not be Gucci exactly, but it's no knock-off. It's its own distinct and surprising creation -- a totally joyous one at that.

This live action version of Beauty and the Beast, also from Disney, should prove pleasing for fans of the original and/or star Emma Watson, yet it all feels a bit busy, prissy and over-the-top.

Spectacular scenarios, digital animation, costumes, makeup and a luxury cast make up and amazing adaptation that will remain for posterity. [Full review in Spanish]

Just sort of silly and twee.

The love in this Beauty and the Beast resides in the audience's affection for the 1991 soundtrack, which stars with nostalgic durability. For a film about finding freedom through devotion to an unlikely other, this has all the passion of a straitjacket.

Condon's film is just about what it should be: A fevered, overblown love letter to a classic. To heights it knows it couldn't hope to reach.

The expectedly impassioned Watson, suitably brooding Stevens and gloriously pompous Evans all help make this timeless tale seem equally nostalgic and new.
March 26, 2017
Maintains the elegance and enchantment of the original film.

It's fine. Take the kids (unless you're one of those parents who seriously frets about how to explain "the gays" to them).

Disney has recycled its remarkable animated classic stunningly, but without much charm. [Full review in Spanish]

Everything is very good visually, also the musical numbers, but I can't stop thinking that is a quite mediocre copy. [Full review in Spanish]

Condon's version certainly won't replace the animated film. But it provides just enough sappiness and sass to please a broad audience with fond memories of the "song as old as rhyme" -- and, no doubt, to enchant a new generation.

It's not great as a musical, but as a piece of dramatic fiction it has something to recommend it that pushes it across the line into satisfactory, even entertaining, cinema.
March 24, 2017
It's a high-gloss recycle job, designed to do nothing more than massage your nostalgia sensors for two interminable hours.

For fans of the '91 Beauty and the Beast, you'd do better rewatching that movie than watching this. But you can't exactly see the '91 movie on a big screen anymore, so this one is a fine (if inferior) substitution.

Beauty and the Beast is passable family entertainment but its necessity remains questionable.

March 23, 2017
Hermione as Belle is enough to make this sort of unnecessary pic worthwhile.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.75/5
March 23, 2017
As it stands, this version is still an enjoyably solid watch, but it's just not the ambitious masterpiece that it could've been.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10

Beauty & The Beast is a remake that honors the original while becoming relatable to a new generation.
