surprised at all the bad reviews....
22 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Im really surprised by all the bad reviews this movie has gotten. I, for one, immensely enjoyed it. First of all the plot was completely original. For once I didn't have it figured out in the first 10 minutes and think that gave it a nice twist. Yeah the special effects weren't great but they were still gory. Give 'em some credit at least they put some thought into it. I also REALLY LIKED BELLE. I hate the movies that have a quiet, demure heroine in it. This time, Belle had spunk! She was a witty, sarcastic little spitfire and kept me laughing through the whole movie. I was also really glad to see that she didn't end up playing some tragic, defenseless victim. She and the beast saved each other quite a few times throughout the movie and I was glad that FOR ONCE their was a couple who I could look at as equals. I give it a 7 because essentially, to me, this movie looks like a rough draft of a really great movie. It is a little cheesy, but to me that just adds to it.
