    Gans clings too much to his own style to give freedom to pretty much everything else, most notably acting and pace. Filled with empty line-readings and bland CGI, Beauty and the Beast lacks any semblance of originality.

    Whenever the camera settles down to record a simple conversation between two characters, things suddenly feel stilted, as if the filmmakers cannot build the drama without flinging a hundred different things in front of the lens at the same time.

    There’s digital wizardry galore in this Beauty and the Beast, but precious little magic.

    The choking pictorialism of the sets and CG backgrounds, coupled with the barely-there performances, contribute to an inescapable sense of lifelessness and sterility.
