Beauty and the Beast Movie Review

STORY: This is a live-action remake of Disney’s classic love story. ‘Beauty lies within’ is what an enchantress expects a vain and arrogant prince (Dan Stevens) to know. He learns it the hard way when her curse turns him into a terrifying beast. Her spell can only be broken if he finds true love. Meanwhile, Belle (Emma Watson), the non-conforming daughter of a village inventor and artist, seeks an adventure. She stumbles upon the beast and magic unfolds…

REVIEW: It doesn’t matter if you are or aren’t a fan of Disney princesses or the classic fairy-tales. Book your tickets for this musical in IMAX 3D now, as Bill Condon’s recreation is delectably mesmerising and magical.

The special effects, sound, costumes, voice-overs, songs – overall production values are first-rate. They make you live the fairy-tale as you are transported to the castle along with Belle, experiencing her adventure. As she befriends the castle’s enchanting staff (voiced by the finest actors like Ewan McGregor, Ian McKellen, Emma Thompson, Stanley Tucci), you too grow fond of each and every character.
