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.
I am overdue in reviewing this movie because of a combination of depression and laziness. I thought this movies takes on an interesting perspective of a story that is as old as the hills.
I was impressed by Daniel Radcliffe simple because I did not recognize him as Igor. This did present a bit of confusion, but I caught on quickly and followed the movie with no problems.
If you like the monster genre, you might enjoy this fresh perspective.
