A dull, plodding, garish do-over of the 1991 classic. Every single aspect of this remake feels rote, mechanical, and uninspired; it's like listening to a cover band that has no understanding of what made the original band fresh and exciting. Utterly unnecessary.

A soulless exercise in mimicry. Maybe if this exact film came out in a world where the 1991 version never existed I'd be impressed by its songs and characters and story and look. We'll never know. What I do know is that this movie just does all of those things worse than Disney did 26 years ago. Angela Lansbury shits all over Emma Thompson. This isn't even a reimagining with SOME creativity put into it like the recent Cinderella and Jungle Book - just a hollow retread. Bill Condon is an asshole.

A violently uninspiring retread, wasting far too much talent in a vain attempt to force a timeless text to be more accessible for the Now. Lighting for 3D, interestingly, created environments flat and uninviting; there are dance sequences where we see no dancing, and songs with no singing. Gad's Lefou, much-lauded as progressive, is merely a regressive caricature we can still look down on, weirdly forced into the narrative for brownie points. Stevens brings the only beauty to this beast.

Some of the extra exposition and musical numbers are a bit pointless and don't really amount to much, plus it becomes slightly overproduced with jarring CGI on occasion too. It's a very competent adaptation overall though and I admire that they've edited the script/songs to fill in a few plotholes from the animated version. I might be slightly swayed by my nostalgia here, but yeah I quite liked it overall.

I don't know about you guys, but I was left thinking "What was the bloody point?" and came out feeling underwhelmed as everything felt weaker compared to the 1991 original. Emma Watson is not very good, and they didn't change it enough to make it stand out like The Jungle Book or Pete's Dragon remake.

In translating one of their greatest animated classics into live action, Disney has mechanized the magic. A rote, hollow, uninspired retread which begs the question: why, though? Of course, we all know the answer.

This live-action remake of a Disney animated classic is a mixed bag. The movie is at times a shot for shot recreation, but however did attempt to add a few new things. Strangely this film has parallels with Peter Jackson's "King Kong"(2005) remake. Here Disney used a few new songs along side some extra character development and some upgraded exposition to enrich the story. However like the Kong remake the additional scenes as well as the reliance on CGI detracts something from the original magic

I found this to be a really solid remake of an already endearing classic. My only complaint I have about this was that it felt slightly rushed, at least for me. I'm sure that won't be a problem for anybody else. The visual effects are amazing, the choreography and music was done very well, and the whole movie really is envisioned well. I also liked the additional characters and character development. All of the actors were great in this too. This isn't up there with the original, but it's good!

Lavish production that sometimes copies the original animated film 1:1 with bravour, and other times makes fine adjustments to explain some of the plot holes. However, the worst part is the new (and superfluous) songs, the long running time and - not least - the feeling that this film is by no means really necessary.

Whenever a new song came on I had to grit my teeth and tightly hold onto my theater chair lest I start screaming as a result of the unbearable musical pain inflicted on my ears. Also, if you make the completely irrational and unjustifiable decision to see this, prepare to be 1) eye gouged by some truly awful CGI and 2) run over by a nostalgia train. This was an empty, pointless, profit-motivated exercise in humiliating everyone involved in the original movie (a movie I actually like very much).

It was a really well made, if unnecessary, remake of what may be the most beloved animated film of all time. I've never been particularly enthralled by the Disney magic, so it wasn't anything special to me beyond being a decent romantic musical. But my wife, who holds the original very dear to her heart, absolutely adored it. If nothing else, that's worth something to me.

I still struggle to find anything resembling proper artistic justification for Disney's Live-action overhaul of their entire back-catalogue, but ignoring that, this updated version works well enough, and I especially enjoyed the decisively un-Disney character design of the various (in)animated objects.

I really enjoyed this film and I thought they showed the right amount of respect, whilst trying to keep it fresh. The plot points they tried to fill were actually quite well done (except for that weird book). Emma Watson is perfect as Belle and the rest of the cast is pretty good too (except why is Ewan McGregor the only one with a French accent? Baffling). Let's be honest though, as soon as the opening score came on, they had me.

Sigh, a disappointing shot-for-shot remake. The highlight was the production design and (ironically for a live-action remake) the CG animation. Gad's Lafou is the only character improved from the original. Every memorable moment is one from the animated film, expect without the soul or charm; bringing us to Watson. Her performance is stilted and forced; her character mandates the villagers be uglier, meaner, and less intelligent than their animated counterparts. Trite, unnecessary and uneven.

The Beauty and the Beast story has never really been done completely right. The setting is what really makes both this and the original, with great atmosphere, characters and music. But there's something about the character development that just isn't right. Anyway, the best live action Disney adaptation so far maybe.

This is a movie that has no real reason to exist. It does nothing better then the original Disney movie, and it does several things worse (like Belle's singing). Its also a bit too long and none of the added songs are memorable. But, I can't help but like it, since its based on a very good movie. Because of that, I'm probably too generous with my score, but its not a bad movie. Just an inferior version of a very good movie. It didn't need to be made, but for what it is its not bad.

Some added material fills in the gaps for character backstory, and that's about all that this does better than the original classic. Ironically, this live action version tends to forget the humanity of its characters more than the animated counterparts. Top marks to Stevens, Kline, Evans, and Gad, and most of the cast is serviceable, but there's not enough charisma and charm -- it's enjoyable but just not memorable. It feels like what it is: a cash grab.

I've already made it clear that these CG remakes have no legitimate business existing, but while there is an argument for readapting the same story, with some revisions, it's the complete disposal of classic Disney songs wholly ingrained into generations of people who grew up knowing them, that is the real travesty here.

An extraordinarily weak story is a foundation upon which no lovely visuals, tiny (tiny) feminist influences, catchy music, and capable performances can sit comfortably. The film may be a nearly perfect live-action recreation of a beloved classic, but in its model lies the horrible flaws and in its recreation lies an enormous missed opportunity.

Well the reviews seem diverse, I think this movie really nailed most parts. The extra exposition really added on the original and fixed a few logical flaws from the original. It seems less Stockholm Syndrome than the original. The singing is great, the musical numbers are fun (NEVERMORE IS AN AMAZING SONG), and, as always, the talking furniture steal the movie. A few times, the script kind of poorly conveys a few topics, but luckily the poor conveyance doesn't last for to long.

Very uneven in its approach. At times it is visually resplendent, sometimes it has painful CGI rendition. Added exposition feels organic, but then ends up not in later scenes. The mob scene feels very disjointed with the rest of the story. Actors are in the element and out. Emma Watson shines as a worthy Belle, Ewan Macgregor charms as Lumiere, Josh Gad great as Lefou. Ian McKellen, a less enjoyable 'wooden' Cogsworth. Gaston and Maurice's character tweaks are less enjoyable. Original is better.

The new Beauty and the Beast is a remake that serves very little purpose except to give everyone a hit of nostalgia and remind us all how great the 1991 version is. In an unforgivable 129 minutes, this movie gives us weak characters, an uninteresting plot, and it can't even produce much of a spectacle when it comes to the musical numbers. It doesn't do anything better than animated version, also does several things far worse, and it doesn't change enough to justify its existence. What a waste.

Retains some but not all of the magic of the original. The additions seem almost universally out of place, but the original parts vary from actor to actor. Emma seems to struggle a bit with the role and the vocals, but Dan Stevens nails the singing and the princely parts of the character, and Luke Evans & Josh Gad make a lively and lovably homoerotic duo.

Another stellar live action version of a film that defined the childhood of an entire generation and it sure was magical. Visually stunning the film was accentuated by the creation of the objects that came to life and then beautifully acted by the limitless talents of the cast. Emma Watson is a fine lead actress and of course her beauty helps showcase the dynamic love being developed between Belle and Dan Stevens' Beast. A stellar and magical film.

Some things worked well and improved the story, while others nearly ruin the film as a whole. The worst part is Belle (Emma Watson). Her performance is bland and her singing is a Frankenstein nightmare of pitch correction and spliced takes. The duet between Emma Watson and Audra McDonald just emphasized the robotic tone of Watson's voice and how much I wish Disney had re-recorded off takes in the studio afterwards.

It'd be hard to find a blockbuster more unnecessary than this. Not a reboot or a remake, but essentially a live-action-reiteration of 91's animated classic. There's nothing to even update here since 1 of the things that made the original so memorable was Disney's decision to make this particular "princess" fiercely independent & strong-willed the 1st time around. 3 decades later, female characters like Belle are a dime a dozen. Still, for kids who never saw the first 1, this is just as charming.

Decent "adaptation" of the animated film, starts off as a live action tribute to Disney's original, with no more than decent singing by Emma Watson (it's so heavily auto-tuned it's hilarious). The castle and the animated characters are really well done, except for the beast. I really like Dan Stevens (Legion, Downton Abbey), but he makes a fool of himself as soon as the curse has been lifted.

Over-designed, oddly soulless, and miscast to high heaven, "Beauty And The Beast" both pales in comparison to the original, and fails to stand on its own in any way, shape, or form, with songs both new and old falling flat, portrayals of beloved characters that are equal parts unnerving and unnatural, and a script that hastily attempts to fill in the downright unimportant plot holes of the original through hackneyed, rushed, and woeful means. Watchable? Yes. Heartfelt, inspired, or unqiue? No.

While mostly keeping to the animated original, this is still polished of with smoothing over of the plot holes (yay!), improved set design (yay!) more in-depth writing (yay!), new jokes (yay!) and new songs (nay!).

I'm forced to rate this highly (by my standards) because I tend to dislike Disney productions in general, dislike the original Beauty and the beast, went to this movie with negative expectations to please my girl... and it turned out to be really good.

This movie is not entirely without its merits, but I'm just tired of these flat, CGI'd-to-death fairy tale remakes. Some sets look nice, and towards the end the character of Gaston actually goes from useless to mildly interesting, but those are shimmers of light in an otherwise forgettable and unappealing movie.

Unnecessary, but functional... and, I'll concede - at certain very specific points - completely magical. The cinematography and live production design are crazy good. The CGI character design, and added songs... not so much. Luke Evans as Gaston is a DELIGHT; Ewan McGregor's Lumiere is the film's biggest disappointment. (There's also the whole 'girl is held against her will and essentially forced to "fall in love"' issue. Grown-up me can't quite feel the Disney magic in that particular conceit.)

I didn't really like it, but then again I didn't enjoy the original as a kid either. Romance doesn't cut it for me. Just as the only thing I liked about "Les Miserables" was the "Master of the House" song, the only thing I really liked about this was the "No One ____s like Gaston" song. If there's a song, make it funny or I tune out. My biggest problem with the film other than that was Lumierre. He was a great character in the original, but in non-cartoon form he lacked expression.

I will talk about the Italian version. The original 1991 movie was absolutely awesome. But this... This is a painful adaptation, the songs don't match the original and this made everyone to scratch his head. The new Italian lyrics portrait Belle as a selfish snob rather than a naive dreamer. Despite my love belongs to Emma Watson, she did a great play, I can't but think that Belle is the cartoon version of Emily Ratayowski, that couldn't play the role because, you know, "reasons".

Lumbering, self-serious 're-imagining' is heavy handed where it should be gossamer light - Watson seems miscast, and looks mightily uncomfortable for most of the film; an excellent supporting cast is reduced to pantomime ham here, with Kline especially egregious.

It didn't work for me. I think that the musical scenes were not filmed the way I expected. One of the best things about theater musicals is that you can see lots of things happening at the same time. It is fluid. In this film, the musical scenes have many cuts, for some reason. Every cut breaks the fluidity and rhythm that I would expect. Didn't like the acting as well. I think that it is not a good idea to transform 2 of your best actors (Ian McKellen and Emma Thompson) in CGI characters.

The beast should've kept his beastly form to challenge the norms and Belle should have fought for the rights of children (so they could read) women (so they would not be objectified) and old men (so their wisdom would not be called insanity) in her village. Their union took the best of them, their love is not beautiful or romantic because it imprisoned them in the useless, empty and stale happy ever after.

Growing up in the 90's, my childhood was primarily all about Disney films, those animated tales that helped us escape from reality, with the original 'Beauty and the Beast' still holding up today as one of Disney's finest efforts. This remake has that magical vista we all need in our life, something to make us smile. Sure, it'll never stand up to the original, and there are noticeable flaws lying about, but this aside it is still a charming film.

Also considered a zero on visuals because the beast was so poorly executed, when we've come to expect so much from CGI. But the rest of the film was beautiful. Totally unimpressed by the flabby "expansion" of the story, but the core is still solid.

It's a movie with high and low points. It's a good story, the beast is a great character; the story tries to suggest that Belle is special, different, but the movie never really convinces on that. There are certain groundless narrative moments (specially when it comes to certain characters features, like, Gaston's supposed mightness), of course, this is supposed to be a children friendly movie, but, still, these are, narratively, problematic constructions; generally fails when trying to be funny

Even if you manage to abstract yourself from the naked cupidity at the heart of the project, 'Beauty and the Beast' is a shoddy piece of filmmaking, and nowhere more evidently than in its music. What a shame, considering the quality of Alan Menken's original compositions, to spend so much of the runtime listening to Waston sounding for all the world like an electric shaver, or suffering through the post-'Wicked' tremolos of any of the new numbers. Stevens is well-cast but barely used.

Not amazing, but not bad either. I remember watching the videotape as a child and it was wonderful. As you would expect, a remake like this will never live up to our childhood memories. But Beauty And The Beast is visually good and they didn't change the story too much. I like that. So 58/100.

Surprisingly decent. Does what it set out to do.

You better believe this is made purely for the money, boy. The original Jungle Book and Pete's Dragon were quaint yet ripe for more modern takes, and I'd argue that their remakes are actually improvements, but the '91 Beauty and the Beast is a terrific film and its magic and charm doesn't really need an updating. This is just a well-made but safe rehash, but of course it doesn't need any other justification besides that insane box office.

This movie works for me on some levels, but I think most of the credit for that belongs to my love for the animated original. Emma Watson is a flat and unresponsive Belle and the screenplay is beefed up with some moments that are unnecessary and a bit odd (like a magic teleportation device), and others that spoil the emotional impact of the story (the added song for the beast). On the plus side Luke Evans is a great antagonist who deserved a better death scene.

Got a lot better after the dreadful first act. I'm not a fan of the uber-ornate visual style - feel it just makes everything look fake really - but the music, comedy, and performances are all killer. Watson is fairly good, but outshone by most everyone else, especially Stevens, Evans, and McGregor. Romance and drama isn't as solid, but I appreciated the effort with extra development. Exceeded my expectations by a fair bit. Obv not a patch on the original tho
