Nothing too heavy here, just a fun neo-noir black crime comedy
It always helps having no expectations about a film, and just go with its flow. And "Beautiful Creatures" just happens to have a fun flow, along the film noir lines. A simple mixture of a black comedy & a mild crime thriller, ultimately making up for a an effective 90 minutes of entertainment, wrapped up on a comfortable budget, supported by a decent enough cast. A grain of that noir-comedy touch the Coen Brothers sometimes use, done UK-style (but without Guy Ritchie's hectic pacing & editing) and more in sync really with films like "Head Above Water" (1996) and the more recent "The Ice Harvest" (2005). If you've liked any of the stuff I just mentioned, you'll probably have some fun with "Beautiful Creatures" too. It stars the perfectly capable Susan Lynch & Rachel Weisz, both forced by coincidence into the role of a femme fatale duo, desperately trying to solve & ultimately exploit the messy situation they've gotten themselves into.
