About the Film
The story and characters you know and love come to spectacular life in the live-action adaptation of Disney’s animated classic Beauty and the Beast, a cinematic event celebrating one of the most beloved tales ever told. Experience the fantastic journey of Belle, a bright, beautiful and independent young woman who is taken prisoner by a Beast in his castle. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle’s enchanted staff, and learns to look beyond the Beast’s hideous exterior and realize the kind heart of the true Prince within.
Not Enough Character Of Its Own...
I saw the animated version way back in the day (forced to go by my then-girlfriend! Honest!) and did rather enjoy it. So I thought I'd see what Disney had made of it in this live action version, having enjoyed Pete's Dragon and the Jungle Book last year, both of which I preferred to their cartoon counterparts. This, though, missed the mark for me. It was too often lifeless, even during the songs, and my attention shifted away from the screen many times. The Beast appeared amateurishly rendered to me, and somewhat inconsistent, though he has a few good comic moments. And the famous ballroom scene couldn't live up to groundbreaking original, not by a long way. Emma Watson never felt right as Belle at any point for me, I can't put my finger on what was lacking but something was amiss..I don't know, maybe I just wasn't in the mood for this but I'd rather sit through the animated version than this here remake...
By far the best live action adaptation to date!! All the songs were amazing especially Evermore and Be Our Guest!! Amazing start to finish and full of lots of laughs and heart felt moments.. well worth a watch!! Best film of 2017 to date !!
Just watched this at the cinema, absolutely fantastic film Emma Watson is amazing
