Victor Frankenstein (2015) Rated PG-13

Told from Igor’s perspective, we see his origins and friendship with Frankenstein, and we see how they became the legends that we know. Starring Daniel Radcliffe, Jessica Brown Findlay, Bronson Webb, and James McAvoy.

Since we all know Mary Shelley’s characters from Frankenstein, there have been many different versions put to screen. This one is interesting, but I felt it really didn’t do Shelley’s characters justice. The film does a different take on presenting Igor’s perspective, but it really doesn’t follow closely with Shelley’s book. McAvoy as Frankenstein was good. Although, the storyline was just too hard to swallow, and the theme just didn’t hold up to Shelley’s story. It’s a film that doesn’t hold much to entertain, making it not worth a watch.
