Director Bill Condon's adaptation of the tale as old as time is overlong, drawn out, and disappointing. While Emma Watson and Luke Evans make for a likeable onscreen duo as Belle and The Beast, and lead a stellar ensemble of gifted actors, the strong acting/voice performances, and visual do not compensate for the poor storytelling.
