Cast & Crew
McGuigan's visually vivid Victor Frankenstein races to its lightning-storm finish, running over the solid (if not electrifying) acting of McAvoy and Radcliffe.
The latest resurrection of Mary Shelley's horror classic has a tech-era vibe that adds to its modest appeal.
Thin as a halfpenny, "Victor Frankenstein" has nothing to offer on science and the mysteries of creation, but it does reaffirm the grip that Shelley's story retains on the imagination, no matter how far afield it's taken.
A kind of mad coming-of-age yarn embellished with lightning bolts and monsters made of cadaverous flesh.
