Pretty decent live action remake of a Disney classic.
It has a few points where it diverges from the the animated movie fro 1991, but mostly the story is the same.

Emma Watson is perfect in the role as Belle. She portrays a smart and pretty character very well.
Luke Evans also does a pretty decent Gaston.
I was surprised that they added rather high profile actors like Ewan McGregor, Ian McKellen and Emma Thompson for the roles of the animated inventory, which are represented as 100% CGI throughout the movie.
Den Stevens, playing the Beast, did not make an impression. I am unsure whether this is due to poor writing or acting or just a boring character to play.

If you enjoyed the original classic, then this is a must see. The same goes, if your are into live action fairy tales. It is a nice, feel-good fantasy movie.

Just a small warning; the fact that this is a live action movie of an already slightly scary story make this movie not suited for small children.
