this movie was adapted from the book of the same title inspired from the classic beauty and the beast. however, like the book this is a modern take of that old tale and the point of view of the story is that of the beast, hence the title. and of course we should not expect 100% similarities from book to movie which happens most of the time.finally this film is for targeted audience which are the teens so don't be too critical otherwise you will not enjoy the ride watching this awesome movie which for me is recommended not only for its target audience but adults alike.it is fun to watch, <more>
simple, straightforward and most of all heartwarming.and what i also love is the musical score and the songs used in this movie.
This movie was excellent! It was romantic, funny, and endearing. I would recommend this movie to my fellow romantics, male or female. A great date movie as well. This is a movie I would definitely see again and again. If you're looking for an action-packed, violent movie, then go see something else because this won't be for you. This movie pulls at your heartstrings, makes you smile, and even has a great message to boot. At first I thought the acting was a bit awkward, however, Alex Pettyfer naturally has a English accent and in this movie he had to switch to American. I believe that <more>
was what I was picking up on. The acting was good, Alex Pettyfer was sexy and sweet, Neil Patrick Harris was funny, Vanessa Hudgens was cute, all in all a great movie. A "must see".
Nine months I have waited for this movie. Nine whole months. Boy, was it worth it.Charming, witty, and everything you could want in a teen flick, "Beastly" modernizes an age old tale, and it does it right. Neil Patrick Harris steals every scene he's in as Kyle's blind tutor Will, and Mary-Kate Olsen shines as Kendra the witch. The film's leads, Alex Pettyfer and Vanessa Hudgens, lack in neither chemistry nor the acting department. While Vanessa Hudgens is clearly the weak link of the bunch, even her performance could have been much worse. The strange thing about Alex <more>
Pettyfer is that he always comes off as so sweet and sincere in his movies, but in real life he seems a tad full of himself. In all honesty, it saddens me. I'd be lying if I said I didn't wish he was like the characters he plays. That's actors for you, I guess."Beastly" is utterly beautiful. In the beginning, Kyle is a shallow, egotistical jerk. But when he's served a piping hot slice of humble pie, compliments of Kendra, he becomes Hunter, the guy he he should have been all along. Perhaps one of the best parts of the movie was watching him try to woo Lindy. When his attempts to buy Lindy's love fail, Hunter stomps his feet and whines like a child. It's so adorable that you can't help but smile.With that said, there ARE some predicaments from which "Beastly" suffers. If you liked the book, you'll probably be disappointed to know that the library was ultimately traded in for the greenhouse. My heart nearly broke in half at this realization. However, I eventually got over that, as there is an even bigger problem: the ending. Simply put, the book's ending is 10 million times better. The ending in the movie is not nearly as powerful, and, at the end of the day, lackluster.Aside from some slightly irritating name changes i.e. Kingsbury to Kingson, Adrian to Hunter, Magda to Zola , the only other issues I had with the film were Kendra's role being downsized and the omission of the magic mirror. As for the re-shoots, you obviously couldn't see the difference in Alex's appearance when he was in full prosthetics, but his physical maturation was definitely noticeable at the end.Don't let the name deceive you, "Beastly" is anything but.
I must say I didn't have a lot of confidence in Alex Pettyfer as an actor after seeing I Am Number Four. In Beastly, however, he far exceeded my expectations. His cute smile, his charm and his comedic points were all spot on in this film. I am not the biggest Vanessa Hudgens fan, but the chemistry between Pettyfer and Hudgens soars across the big screen, making this film one of the best I have seen this year.The true diamond in the rough of this film has to be Neil Patrick Harris, who plays a blind tutor. He delivers hilarious comments at just the right time and really helped carry this <more>
film.Beastly is a modern fairytale of "Beauty and the Beast." I have not read the book, but there is no need. This movie definitely did it justice. I went to the theatre last night to see this film and after an hour and a half of this movie, I saw tears from many girls and even a couple men. Definitely a movie worth seeing and perfect for a date night! 9/10
Beastly really surprised me. its witty comments come just at the right time. the makeup artistry in Beastly was beyond what was expected. the soundtrack was enjoyable and smooth running throughout the film. Alex Pettyfer's kyle acting was an improvement. i didn't have much of a good outlook on his acting career until this movie but he showed he can convey more emotions than "im running for my life" and "teenagers find me sexy" and i think a lot of that had to do with the makeup. Neil Patrick Harris really moved the film into its comedic moments, Lisa Gay Hamilton <more>
also an untapped talent she really puts a lot of emotion into her small talking parts in the movie. all in all this movie exceeded my every expectation in design, characters, makeup and music. its worth seeing if you go to the theater or rent it at home.

His heart is set on her knowing she be the one, his tutor and housemaid helps him and has she about to leave and time as ran out, he knows he gonna remain a beast forever, but will she change her mind before she goes.
Much More Entertaining Than I Thought it Would Be...... (by archeather)
First of all, I just want to say that I am not the biggest fan of Vanessa Hudgens. However, her playing opposite Alex Pettyfer and the chemistry that he added really helped her in this movie. I gotta say it....there is something about Alex Pettyfer on screen that keeps you captivated. He does it in I Am Number Four and again here in Beastly. People keep comparing him to Robert Pattinson but I see their career paths going in different directions Pattinson's next project is w/ David Cronenberg and I see Pettyfer going more mainstream . While I have never read Beastly, I think this was a <more>
much better young adult film adaption than the Twilight Saga films. There was bunch of males in our group that attended the sneak preview of Beastly. After Twilight, they had low expectations of this film and they enjoyed this film far more. Brilliant casting move by making Neil Patrick Harris the tutor of Alex Pettyfer. As always Harris's comedic timing was impeccable. Who knows if his lines where improvised or what but whatever came out of his mouth was hilarious. I had low expectations of Mary-Kate Olsen's role going into this but she definitely owned her role as the witch. I thought whoever did the costuming for her character did a fantastic job too. Loved how each ensemble she wore was different but yet at the same time very interesting. I thought the set design and music choices were all well done. I thought the makeup on Alex Pettyfer when he was the "beast" was superb. His makeup was the perfect blend of creativity but still have a gruesome quality to it. And of course, the message about not judging a book by it's cover is always valid even in this modern remake of the original tale by Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve. Look I had low expectations of this movie but after viewing it I thought it was a very fun date night kind of flick even for the older sect. Just saying, don't completely write it off because of Twilight or Hudgen's high school musical past.....
Kyle Alex Pettyfer a High school senior who's living the dream having, popularity, looks, and a rich daddy. His arrogant hobby is to humiliate anyone who didn't fit in his category of NORMAL. At a school rally he decides to single out Kendra Mary-Kate Olsen but she decides to give him a second chance. Kendra just happens to be a real witch pretending to be a high school student. Invited to a Eco event by Kyle he embarrasses Kendra again in front of everyone. To show Kyle the same level of compassion that she got from him, she turns him ugly and gives him 1 year to find true love <more>
or he'll be Beastly forever. His only hope is a student named Lindy Vanessa Hudgens . Hiding in a house across the way, Kyle is joined by his tutor Neil Patrick Harris and Zola Lisa Gay Hamilton the maid. A 12 month journey to be reborn and find true love. A little bumpy in the beginning but a smooth ride to the end. Definitely entertaining for the whole family pg-13. 4 out of 5 stars
Nothing Says "I Love You" Like A Locked Door (by Dreamer241)
If we have learnt anything about love from Beauty and the Beast Disney it is that if you truly love someone you must lock them away. Shove that person in a room against their will, bolt the door and never listen to their nonsense about 'wanting to be free,' what is this freedom they speak of? In time they will begin to realise that beneath your abusive, threatening and ugly-in-certain-lights exterior lies a kind, gentle creature. A creature who likes to feed birdies, reveal libraries and much more-leave it.Beastly is based on the fairy tale of the beautiful girl who falls in love <more>
with a monster and breaks a curse meaning instead of a minging hairy beast, she gets to live forever in a palace with a hottie who's rich. Beauty is a lucky cow. The modern message should be, love them now while their gruesome looking, later a bit of plastic surgery and a makeover and you'll get your fairytale. Just look at Colleen Rooney, she stuck around and she has a millionaire footballer who's really good looking. Better example, as someone said on Youtube, "the future nerds and fatties of today, billionaires and hotties of tomorrow."Beauty and the Beast is all about looking past the outward appearance of someone and discovering their personality and desiring them because of who they are. It is interesting to get the story from the Beast/Kyle's perspective of losing your adorable good looks for tattoos and scars because those aren't attractive at all! In this superficial world we live in it's easy to see why this loss grieved him. Read Face-Benjamin Zephaniah There's a scary moment when you're a kid and you realise you preferred Beast to Adam. Why is that? I imagine that it's because you get to know him as a character and see Belle's love for him grow. Through her eyes we see that he is beautiful and that Adam is well we all remember the revelation.I did feel that in the beginning the script was a little too clunky and didn't fit. Oddly enough Vanessa Hudgens managed not to ruin the film by being Vanessa Hudgens. Of course Alex Pettyfer stole the show with his everything. You want to believe that he is meant to be ugly but he just isn't. Mary Kate Olsen as Kendra/Witch was also amazing I wanted to see more of her. Hollywood just freaks me out with its weird 'be yourself but only if you're hot' message. In the film Kyle isn't ugly, he's just different which must be frowned upon! You could tell they wanted to take him all the way into emodom but there would have been an uproar- especially from me-about what they were trying to portray. I won't spoil the ending but I think you can guess what happens. What would an emo Alex Pettyfer look like? The sad thing is that Vannessa Hudgens and Kristen Stewart-queens of the frozen face-will still get acting roles. Although I guess my face would be frozen if I was working with The Lautner and Alex yes we are on first name terms. So should you watch this film? There is a hot guy in it, it's summer do you want to overheat? It is very sweet in parts though *sigh*Tagline: Love is never ugly....unless you're an ugly girl
