Tale as long as time...oh no this is not Beauty and the Beast. Yes, the story is kind of based on Beauty and the Beast but it's now in the modern world. Handsome but shallow and arrogant young man being cursed and turn into a "beast" (ugly?). But I don't think he's ugly at all even after being cursed, he's more like a sadist than a beast wtf.
Before being turned.
Kyle (Alex Pettyfer) after being turned.
Here's the beauty, Lindy (Vannessa Hudgens).
Story is a bit cliche. Well what you expect from a modern Beauty and the Beast remake lol? Acting, the leading actor and actress still have a long way to go.
My favourite character is actually the blind tutor, Will (Neil Patrick Harris). I liked him back in the day when he's Doogie Howser M.D. He's timing in the funny scene or line is just so on. Also, you'll see joke from "How I Met Your Mother".
The witch that cursed Kyle, is Kendra (Mary-Kate Olsen). Not too bad but I like her and her sister best back in the days of Full House lol.
Overall nothing too surprising here. Neil Patrick Harris did a wonderful performance. Go to the cinema if you like him and want to watch him on the big screen. If not, maybe there's a lot of other Oscar winning movie up currently :p
