Read the book, and now I've seen the movie; to be honest I don't know if I'm disappointed or not. The first half was good, it followed the Behemoth of a book well and Emma Thompson was simply terrific! She was the perfect balance of evil and insane; loved every scene with her.
However, the romance seemed to overpower the actual story. Don't get me wrong, I love a bit of romance, but Beautiful Creatures (novel) has a lot of magic too which the film seemed to lack. A shame, really.
Overall, it was a film I would happily buy on DVD but I don't think it was worth a trip to the cinema.
