Read my review for Beastly by Alex Finn
Love is never ugly but this movie was!!!!!
I don't even know where to begin. The acting, the cheesy lines, everything was a mess. I could not help but laugh periodically during Beastly. I felt very little for the characters. To me this was not a love story. It was just too cheesy. It really felt like a made for T.V. movie. Venessa Hudgens said "rad" a couple of times and Alex said "shoot me now", that is just some of the stupid lines. My younger children behave that way, the lines just seemed silly and overacted. There was zero passion and lack of luster in Beastly. I thought the book was O.K.. After seeing the movie, the book is pretty darn good. I understood what was going on in the movie, although a lot was changed. If you did not read the book, I can see why you would think the movie was choppy. All around poorly acted, poorly directed, poorly written and the special effects where pathetic.
I would say save your money and wait for another love story. However, all is not lost on Alex Pettyfer. Yes, he was pretty horrible in Beastly, but he was great in I Am Number Four (read Andye's movie review)!
