Semi-successful variant on the classic story

VICTOR FRANKENSTEIN is another Hollywood attempt to go back to horror's classic routes, and the good news is that it's better than the overblown VAN HELSING and the silly I, FRANKENSTEIN, two previous outings I didn't have much luck with. That doesn't make it perfect, however. I found this just about watchable but that's as far as it goes. The 'hook' is that the film's central figure isn't Frankenstein but rather his hunchbacked servant Igor, an important figure in the Universal classic THE SON OF FRANKENSTEIN but one who has been neglected in recent years. Daniel Radcliffe plays Igor in a semi-successful performance although he seems to think he's in a more comedic film than those around him. James McAvoy is Frankenstein himself and better, with his usual intensity. The film generally keeps you watching to a degree, although I found it to be lacking in many memorable moments aside from the OTT climax.

You might like it

I did not care for this movie, but that could be because it just wasn't my type of story. It is the tale of Victor Frankenstein and Igor creating the monster, and it focuses primarily on the events leading up to the creation of the monster, with only the last few minutes dealing with the monster itself. If you like Daniel Radcliff you may like this movie. Personally, I saw him as Harry Potter through the whole film. The movie was heavy on story, but I personally felt the story was "meh"... That could be biased, however, since I like comedy and/or action mixed in with the story quite a lot, and this was lacking in both. In any case, this movie was not for me, but it could be good for someone who likes the time period, likes stories rooted in inter- personal relationships, or Daniel Radcliff.

Excellent Imaginative Prequel

Not really a retelling but an imaginative prequel to the original 1931 Frankenstein film which itself was a major deviation from the book.

Some people may think this is a retelling, but by the end of the film it's clear that it is a prequel, though the hints are there all along.

The film has much to commend it, including the acting of James McAvoy (Frankenstein), Andrew Scott (Detective Turpin), and Jessica Findlay (Igor's love interest). The music and photography are excellent and the set and costume people create an excellent picture of Victorian London.

I particularly liked the idea of the film being told from the POV of Igor.

On the negative side, Daniel Radcliffe's performance added very little and the film was a tad too long.

There is nothing to match the 1931 original nor the 1935 Bride of Frankenstein, but otherwise this film holds up well against the hundreds of other Frankenstein films. OK. I'm not counting the Abbott and Costello version, which is great.
