Book/Film Adaption Review


Beautiful Creatures Movie PosterSo I saw the movie version of Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl on Tuesday. I have to say I initially hated the casting. The two leads Alden Ehrenreich (Ethan) and Alice Englert (Lena) are virutally unknown and not how I pictured Ethan and Lena. However, their performance was really good, believable, and their chemistry was perfect. I absolutely loved the southern drawl and found the actor for Ethan to be super cute. The dialogue could be considered cheesy but I found it to be witty and cute. This movie is definitely a romance movie and if you’re hoping to get something more supernatural you will be disappointed. I recommend this movie for people who like a good love story or if you are a fan of the book.

Plot differences:

-There was quite a few difference from the book such as Marian was removed from the movie and Amma took on her role
-nothing about Macon being an incubus was mentioned
-the ending was different
-Larkin was made into a light castor when he is really dark and he was suppose to die
-Lena never erased Ethan’s memories
-Ethan was suppose to die and then be resurrected.
