Victor Frankenstein (2015) – Personal Movie Review

images (1)

James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe star in a dynamic and thrilling twist on a legendary tale. Radical scientist Victor Frankenstein (McAvoy) and his equally brilliant protégé Igor Strausman (Radcliffe) share a noble vision of aiding humanity through their groundbreaking research into immortality. But Victor’s experiments go too far, and his obsession has horrifying consequences. Only Igor can bring his friend back from the brink of madness and save him from his monstrous creation. (C) Fox

After watching the trailer for this movie, I felt that it was made with the same approach with ‘League of Extraordinary Gentlemen’ & other same genre from that dark age Britain and it did but it fell short of my expectation for a darker and grittier mood which is supposed to be because of the nature of the story. Honestly, I didn’t enjoy watching this movie. The pacing for me isn’t consistent, there are times when it bored me because of slow character and story development. However, the cast gave a sincere portrayal of the characters and the cinematography set the tone of the movie.

All in all, I can give the movie 2 out of 5 stars as the premise/plot of the movie is really promising and rich with lots of twist but they failed to utilize that material wisely and intelligently.
