The Film is all Beauty, no Beast (The Majestic Love Story is Missing).
8 December 2014 | by (India) – See all my reviews

A nice attempt by Christophe Gans, but certainly not his best work. The special effects are remarkable and the visuals are spectacular, but the movie has nothing much to offer other than that. The different take of the story might seem a little refreshing, but it lacks heart and soul, and the characters aren't developed much; one couldn't sympathise with or like any character in the film. Glimpses are given into the prince's life and his past, but nothing is done to develop his relationship with Belle; them falling in love doesn't make any sense in this story.

Talented actors like Cassel and Seydoux are completely wasted; they're just there to look their part. But I have to say, Lea Seydoux's looks in the movie are synonymous with her character's name, Belle (beautiful).

If anyone is a fan of the story, I would still recommend them to watch the 1991 animated musical instead of this one; it's better in every single way.

Overall, the film is all Beauty, no Beast (the majestic love story is missing).
