Victor Frankenstein Review

Saw Victor Frankenstein tonight with Daniel Radcliffe and James McAvoy. Thought it was good! It was a nice twist –┬átelling of a very old and much told tale. Pretty strong performances by the two main stars of the film as well as from Andrew Scott, who has been showing up a lot lately. The feel of the movie reminded me of the Sherlock Homes movies with Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law. Not as clever but stylistically reminiscent. The tale is told from the perspective of Igor played by Daniel Radcliffe. There are many things I liked about the story of Igor’s friendship with Victor Frankenstein. The movie was pretty short as some movies go so they had to tell a lot of story and develop all of the characters in a pretty short time frame. All and all satisfying though I would be interested in seeing a director’s cut some time.
