Nothing like the book! It left out 3 characters that make Ethan who he is. I don't know how they will make the next one because so much of what was left out comes again in the next book. If you haven't read the books you will probably like it, but if you have you will be disappointed.

This movie totally ruined the books for me. now when i read them i will picture the dork with the worst southern accent. They made the movie with the idea of the story not the book. Casting was all wrong in all characters, terrible acting. waste of time and money.

I haven't looked forward to a movie like this in a long time - and WHAT a disappointment. If you have read the series - DO NOT see the movie. It will just make you mad. I was SO angry by the end of the movie. If you can't stay true to the book characters - don't make the movie at all. FAIL

Beautiful Creatures springs to life whenever Irons, Thompson or Rossum is centerstage. The grown-ups get to wear all the coolest costumes and spout all the juiciest lines. Problem is, this isn't their story. It's first and foremost a semi-plodding teen romance with supernatural overtones. Full Review

Village Voice
Director Richard LaGravenese, who also adapted the novel, lavishes the material with greater wit than its demographic demands, and the central love story feels warm-blooded—the air prickles between the leads. Full Review

Los Angeles Times
Maybe there really are supernatural forces at work in this world. How else to explain Beautiful Creatures? The movie is an intriguing, intelligent enigma — three words not typically associated with teen romances. Full Review

Beautiful Creatures basically spits in the face of a legacy of literature founded on feelings of exclusion and social alienation. Full Review

USA Today
Lead actor Ehrenreich conveys a spirited charm, while Englert, the object of his affections, is more blandly self-contained. Full Review
