    Over-rated; some good acting, but stupid, dark storyline. Contrary to one reviewer's lie, there was no rape scene in this movie. Thank goodness Octavia Spencer was there to lighten the mood.

    I enjoyed this movie!! Intriguing, suspenseful and until you "get" the ending of the movie do you understand the Psychological and sensual attraction between "beauty and the beast"....

    Just so tasteless and predictable. Trip to the bathroom during movie was best part.

    Was such a snoozer, and so silly and predictable. Can't figure out the hype. Don't waste your money.

    Guillermo del Toroís lyrical new movie draws upon classic horror-film imagery but utterly subverts the themes and tones of the old movies, focusing on different elements within the frame and letting us consider the humanity of the monster. Itís a fable, but like Panís Labyrinth, itís a fable with teeth.

    Another cool "monster" under Doug Jones' belt! This guy is fantastic, he should be more recognized.

    Guillermo del Toro's style of storytelling is so nice. Pan's Labyrinth may still be my favourite by him but this story/movie is also really good. All of the actors were good as well. It's an interesting movie that takes you away for a little while, very fantastical and super visual. Can be a little violent at times, all of his films are, but this just adds to the fun, in my opinion.

    I loved this movie!!! One of the best of 2017 by far. Almost old style movie making its approach and a nifty little story made magical by the special effects and topic.
