A bad "B" movie with a a horrible ending
December 24, 2017
3 stars is more than this movie deserve-it was not okay. A bad "B" movie with a a horrible ending, bad acting , bad writing, bad editing, even very bad hair extensions on "Sven" who should have been billed 4th instead of "the beast".. Bad costumes-what were they thinking? Viking women wearing purple silk and fitted gowns from the 18th century? I don't really know the wardrobe of viking men or women but it's highly doubtful. Even the mens costumes were overly adorned with studded gold inlayed on leather. . . even the island was tropical instead of set in the northern hemisphere. Beauty and the beast---the beast was billed 4th, umm he's a major character. Where were the scenes that establish a relationship between the beautiful women and this beast? Where is the scene that casts him out of her life? All I saw was some guy saying "I will come back for you..." . A very long film, tragically long. The story does has potential but the sad lack of imagination to tell a story and grab the imaginations of the viewer is lost from the very beginnings of this film. The actors are swimming in a river , jumping from an apparatus that could not have existed in the supposed tie the film took place . . . Lots can be be forgiven in film making but not much of this film is worth saving. I don't know how any of it made it to the screen.
