Two hot stars collide in one of the films I am anticipating in 2011. Welcome Alex Pettyfer (I Am Number Four) and Vanessa Hudgens (High School Musical series). The film is a modern retelling of "Beauty and the Beast" and makes us revisit our values about beauty being skindeep. Well, generally marketed to the younger generations, "Beastly" surely has succeeded in giving us "kilig" moments. And who could forget the hotness of Kyle (Alex) The storyline is a tried and tested one and it just makes you feel the beauty of love.
Although at some points, the movie tends to be slow in pace, it still made up for most of its parts. The visuals and the songs used in the film were commendable. Aside from 2 gorgeous cast, it is good to note a worthy performance by Mary-Kate Olsen who played the goth princess role with much gusto. She truly made a remarkable performance on this one.
Directed by Daniel Barnz, "Beastly" was somehow a wake-upper for all people. On today's modern world, we tend to give more importance to eathly stuffs, material things and outside beauty. We tend to forget that the best there is usually lies in beauty that is not seen by the naked eye. It's a 3.5 out of 5 popcorns.
