Unfortunately, the more "real" the movie tries to make everything appear, the harder it becomes to ignore that the necessity to their falling in love isn't particularly romantic
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10

It's all ups and downs and I can't emphasize enough that the Beast is a horrifying pile of animated taxidermy.
August 21, 2017
The one unforgivable flaw of resurrecting Beauty and the Beast in 2017 is that we've already had another movie handle the monster love story better. It's called Shrek.
June 13, 2017
It's just a straightforward retelling of the original, with a few cosmetic changes tacked on to make it look like something else.
March 17, 2017
Beauty and the Beast lacks both the charm and the aesthetic splendor of its predecessor; it's a meaningless and empty remake that, for the most part, just poorly mimics the original's iconic scenes.

March 3, 2017
A quarter century has passed since we saw Disney's Belle fall for the Beast; today, the message that behind every rough man is a charming prince (sorry, Emma) is regressive, if not lethal.

While the CGI extravagances are amazing and the human elements show promise, they never work together to create something noteworthy and original.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10
August 10, 2017
The live-action remake of the 1991 Disney classic hits all the right nostalgic notes - if only it dared to take a few more risks.
July 23, 2017
It is a live-action remake that is so faithful to the original film that one cannot help but question why it exists at all.

Many will allow themselves to get swept away in Beauty and the Beast's tide of nostalgia. Just know that there isn't much depth below that shiny surface.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

From the very start, audiences who come to the live-action Beauty and the Beast with the 1991 version in their heads will be thrown.

The teapot emoji still sings as the lovers waltz, the Beast still gifts Belle with an infinite library, and everyone gets a happily ever after, with much charm along the way. It's just that remaking a tale as old as time is bittersweet and strange.

An adaptation that is charming at times but that doesn't manage to capture the same magic of the animated version. [Full review in Spanish]
March 3, 2017
There's an emotional detachment at its core that renders it an innocuously serviceable live-action remake.
Full Review | Original Score: C
March 3, 2017
Bill Condon didn't have to stay slavishly devoted to the 1991 film, but most of alterations and changes don't make his version feel fresh. They feel like they're grasping for relevancy.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
March 22, 2017
A film where everything shines a lot and looks dazzling, but just in the outside. [Full review in Spanish]
April 11, 2017
Disney takes a step back, delivering a rehash close to being a robbery. An unjustifiable remake. [Full review in Spanish]
April 4, 2017
The argument is exactly the same but there are substantial differences that make it much inferior than the first version. [Full review in Spanish]
March 17, 2017
It's sumptuously designed, has some catchy tunes and an A-list cast voicing anthropomorphic household appliances. Still, Disney's live-action remake of its 1991 animated feature is, by and large, underwhelming.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

'Beauty and the Beast' doesn't confirm our worst omens but isn't even close to the level of the wonderful animated film - my second favorite Disney Classic. [Full review in Spanish]
