"Beastly" is an edgy teen romance about learning how to see past false surfaces to discover true inner beauty.
Kyle Kingson (Alex Pettyfer) has it all – looks, intelligence, wealth and opportunity – and a wicked cruel streak. Prone to mocking and humiliating "aggressively unattractive" classmates, he zeroes in on Goth classmate
Kendra, inviting her to the school’s extravagant environmental bash. Kendra (Mary-Kate Olsen) accepts, and, true to form, Kyle blows her off in a particularly savage fashion. She retaliates by casting a spell that physically transforms him into everything he despises. Enraged by his horrible and unrecognizable appearance he confronts Kendra and learns that the only solution to the curse is to find someone that will love him as he is – a task he considers impossible.
Repulsed by his appearance, Kyle's callous father banishes him to Brooklyn with a sympathetic housekeeper and blind tutor. As Kyle ponders how to overcome the curse and get his old life back, he chances upon a drug addict in the act of killing a threatening dealer. Seizing the opportunity, Kyle promises the addict freedom and safety for his daughter, Lindy (Vanessa Hudgens) if she will consent to live in Kyle's Brooklyn home. Thus begins Kyle's journey to discover true love in this hyper-modern retelling of the classic "Beauty and the Beast" story.
You must watch this movie guys! Alex is so hot! But in the entire movie he looks like this
but the story have a happy ending, just like in the Beauty and the Beast! :)
Since Vanessa Hudgens is the leading lady in this movie, it made me curious on this movie (I like her role in HSM, plus she has Filipino blood! though Sucker Punch did not pull my heartstrings to watch it..the trailer sucks so the movie's title Sucker Punch really matches it ^^)
The movie is good! I'll give it a rating of 2.5/5 ^^,
