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.

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.

Hermione as Belle is enough to make this sort of unnecessary pic worthwhile.

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.

The film is certainly a spectacle -- so congratulations, Disney CGI wizards! And there's enough talent involved -- not to mention the good bones of the original story and music -- to make it more than watchable
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

If you pardon the pun, Beauty and the Beast is a tale as old as time, but it's a tale that will again capture the imaginations and hearts of viewers young and old alike.

Hits the marks it needs to but can never beat the '91 version. It does some things well, but ultimately this beast is more bloated than it needs to be.

The film has an old-fashioned, studio-bound look, despite the reliance on digital effects.

Luckily for the movie as a whole, a lively support cast is there to pick up the slack when enjoyment levels feel as if they could be about to flag.

The film invites everyone to be guests of this adventure, which serves as a song and a celebration of love and diversity. [Full review in Spanish]

This is a movie with big shoes to fill and it does the job nicely with lavish sets and costumes, top notch actors and singers, supported by a skilled technical crew. It inherits those great songs by Alan Menken, Tim Rice and the late Howard Ashman.

A dazzling, enchanting and captivating musical which, although not entirely without faults, still finds plenty of ways to do its predecessor proud.

The movie is so well-cast that even the tiniest parts pop -- Stanley Tucci wears gold shoes and doesn't speak! Audra McDonald sings! -- and that's before you get to the peerless Emma Thompson as Mrs. Potts.

Beauty & The Beast is a true pleasure. In some ways, new material is better than the familiar bits.
March 20, 2017
This is sweet, enjoyable and it is always visually sumptuous.
