We loved everything about this movie. Great story, acting, and surprising for not very many famous leads! (I did not read the book but my partner did--of course I was told the book was much better than the movie but we still liked it).

Gothic southern romance between a mortal and a caster{witch} that is forbidden. Great cast, much better young lead actors than Twilight. Nice soundtrack, beautifully filmed, and I enjoyed the film.

Enjoyed this dark-ish, fantasty. Good special effects. Love Jeremy Irons; his character and his home's interior in this film was very cool. Now Emma Thompson ' s character was just so creepy. The dinner scene was a bit dumb. I don't relate this film to the "Twighlight" series at all.

Comparing this movie to twilight is just dumb. Beautiful Creatures has atmosphere, beautiful scenery, and the two lead actors are awesome. I don't know if the boy's accent was real, but I thought it was very charming and sexy. Most of all, the script had humor mixed in with the melodrama, and I really enjoyed all the characters. I would definitely watch this again and hope there is a seqel.

Cartoonish teen-romance magic Southern-gothic fantasy. Bitch-fight heavy. Makes for okay wallpaper.

Intriguing and sometimes funny flick. Old school family of witches deals with modern-day Old-South bible thumpers. Forces of good & evil at work.

I must say that this movie was good but then again it could have been much better, the story-line was very predictable as several of you had said and the screen-play was way-off of what the book indicates happened. All in all I liked this movie alot more than I had anticipated I would. I put up a stinck about even watching this movie but my sister insisted we have a movie night so we did.

Not the lead cast's best film but well done anyways. E for effort. :)

I would have given this movie more stars except that the lead character's (Ethan's) overdone Southern accent was so irritating. I haven't read the book so can't compare the movie to it. The acting and special effects were better than the storyline. I think it would have the most appeal for a teen audience.

After the TWILIGHT film phenomenon, there were several films that looked to cash in on the popularity of the series. This does have it's simularities, albeit done in a different manner with the subject being witches (or Casters as this one calls them) as opposed to the vampires of TWILIGHT! As a standout movie, this was an enjoyable and at times lovely film to look at from a cinematographic standpoint. I liked the onscreen chemistry of the two leads, and in her favor, at least Emily Rossum knows how to emote in her acting, unlike the more well known Kirsten Stewart, so that's a plus in her favor. Granted, this movie isnt great, but I could think of worse films.

Lena Duchannes: I could hear the sound. The sound was me breaking. I cried because he had lived, because he had died. I was shattered. I was saved. I only knew the girl I was, was gone. He was right. No good could come from loving a mortal. They can't survive our world. Get out, Ethan; go. Claim yourself. in defiance, in hope, in love, in fury, in gratitude. Claim the light. Claim the dark, Claim it all. Nothing can stay.
