I’ve mixed feelings about this film. I loved the characters, the story not so much. It was a bit meh.
It starts brilliantly, amazingly well and then we have a shockingly dull middle, (yeah, I went there), and, by the time we get to the ending, which is satisfying, any impact was zapped from it. B)
I think the reason I still sort of liked this film is Igor (Daniel Radcliffe), and Victor Frankenstein (James McAvoy). Not only were their individuals portrays absolutely electrifying, (Yeah…again.), their dynamic was amazing. I almost feel it was worth seeing just for them, almost, but it isn’t worth seeing in the cinema.
I’m actually really sad because they did such engaging job, but it still didn’t change that it was a dull, unsurprising plot.
To sum up, dull plot, amazing acting
Was it worth the watch? Unfortunately not, even though Daniel Radcliffe and James McAvoy are fantastic.
Would I re-watch? No
