  1. pluviosity's rating of the film Victor Frankenstein

    A lot better than I thought. James McAvoy really, really, managed this. If only Guy Ritchie stop his Sherlock-ish graphic effect, it'll be much better.

  2. Luís Silva's rating of the film Victor Frankenstein

  3. msmichel's rating of the film Victor Frankenstein

    When will they stop remaking this story? They got it right in '31 yet keep adapting with poor results. The basic premise of creation and hubris is still sound but the 'modern tweakings' hurt it at best. Performances are a little twee here though Andrew Scott makes a sound impression as the steadfast religious inspector. Overall a handsome enough production just unnecessary.

  4. Mathias Palmberg's rating of the film Victor Frankenstein

    A fun and irreverent take on Shelley´s classic with great production work and pretty solid direction. Acting wise things are a bit uneven and for my money it is only Radcliffe who puts in an earnest performance. Much can be said about McAvoy but I thought he went a bit Nic Cage in all honesty and chewed the scenery a bit too much. Still the third reel was a glorious over the top finale that put a smile on my face.

  5. Ilona Buffet's rating of the film Victor Frankenstein

    Had very hard time finishing to watch. Had it's moments but not enough

  6. ΞRIC B∆D TASTΞ's rating of the film Victor Frankenstein

    i'm surprised, that's a great version. but here i really would much more prefer at least a duration of 2.5 hours - for get more details about the production & step by step crazyness of Frankenstein. aaand i hope somebody will produce a good Jekyll & Hyde one day... so by the way.

  7. Catarina C Gomes's rating of the film Victor Frankenstein

    You know you have a friend when he's willing to suck your fluids. Jeez

  9. Melih's rating of the film Victor Frankenstein

  10. Imagefix's rating of the film Victor Frankenstein

    Surprisingly not bad. The production is lavish and it's not as hokey as the trailer implies. Sure, it's basically Ritchie's SHERLOCK HOLMES meets "Penny Dreadful," but it's entertaining, if not very substantial.

  11. Eddie Rinctoya's rating of the film Victor Frankenstein

  12. Artemis's rating of the film Victor Frankenstein

  13. ABVH's rating of the film Victor Frankenstein

    McAvoy gives it all, playing mentor, crazy scientist, brother, son, criminal mastermind, and being utterly wasted on a story that tries to go everywhere and gets nowhere.

  14. twistedthursday's rating of the film Victor Frankenstein

    Really enjoyed it. James McAvoy is brilliant - cocky, neurotic, mad, but still sympathetic. He just really loves science!

  15. Jocelyn Leyva's rating of the film Victor Frankenstein

    James McAvoy is great, familiar though.

  16. Sean Patrick Stevens's rating of the film Victor Frankenstein

    Trailer made it look like SHERLOCK HOLMES but this is an entirely different animal. The re-imagining has a very weird origins story with Harry Potter WITH A hunchback. McEvoy is truly alive in every scene he's in channelling the best of Hammer Horror but it becomes overly familiar and plot driven towards the end with the convergence of too many subplots.

  17. Pablo Ramos's rating of the film Victor Frankenstein

    Shelly's classic should be able to manage without petty clown sequences and oddball, comic-book villains.

  18. Antonio León Medina's rating of the film Victor Frankenstein

    Good performance of the actors, and I like the story.

  19. Àlex Frias Haro's rating of the film Victor Frankenstein

    Relampagueante y gótica revisión del clásico de Mary Shelley, que funciona como un homenaje al clásico de la Universal, y un tributo a la novela original. Es entrañable en su relato sobre la amistad entre Igor y Victor Frankenstein, magníficamente interpretados por Daniel Radcliffe y James McAvoy. La narración tiene una que otra laguna, pero es entretenida y su producción espléndida.

  20. aikeart's rating of the film Victor Frankenstein

    Algo predecible, sin nada sorprendente.
