Underwhelming - some lovely scenes but the CGI face of Beast is a constant distraction
3 March 2017 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Up front: I'm probably not the right audience for this film. I only went because I was invited, and I wouldn't have gone to check this one out otherwise.

Firstly, some of the production values are really beautiful and reminded me of the animated classic in a good way. Also, the voice cast for the clock and the kitchen devices are great.

Secondly, the actors, well... this may sound kind of harsh, but I've never seen Emma Watson act so stiff in a movie. Her performance is wooden, which is pretty bad considering she's supposed to be the heart of the film. Also, she probably won't start a singing career anytime soon.

Thirdly (and most importantly), Beast. That's where they really dropped the ball. Giving him a lifeless CGI face was an unforgivable mistake, and it's such a constant distraction that I could never really get into the movie.

Overall, I'm afraid I wouldn't recommend this movie, at least not to adults. I'm sure most kids would enjoy it though, and it's not really a bad film: just a very mediocre one. 6 stars out of 10.
