Movie Review: Victor Frankenstein

VictorFrankensteinI’ve got a newer, big budget, Hollywood twist on a classic horror tale for ya this week. Here’s what Victor Frankenstein it’s about:

“Told from Igor’s perspective, we see the troubled young assistant’s dark origins, his redemptive friendship with the young medical student Viktor Von Frankenstein, and become eyewitnesses to the emergence of how Frankenstein became the man – and the legend – we know today.”

I was very excited to watch this movie. I love the premise of showing Igor’s point of view. Too bad it sucked so bad.

In my opinion, James McAvoy ruined my viewing experience with his horrible portrayal of Victor Frankenstein. His acting was horrible and forced. I hated that he was all over the place. On the other hand, Daniel Radcliffe did well as Igor and kept me watching.

I did like the visuals in the movie. I also enjoyed the opening introduction of Igor and Dr. Frankenstein. After that I was ready for a nap. This is another Hollywood remake that throws in a few loved actors and figures that’s all it takes.

Really sorry (why am I apologizing?), I hated this movie.

My Rating: 1.5 out of 5 Bloody Brains

Please leave zombie movie suggestions in the comments.
I prefer movies rated below a 4 on IMDB.
