Surprisingly Good Adaptation Of A Familiar Story, 25 January 2003
Author: sddavis63 (revsdd@gmail.com) from Niagara Region, Ontario, Canada

I stumbled across this movie on late night television a couple of nights ago. It looked like a fairly low-budget movie and I didn't really expect to stay with it, but it surprised me. I found it to be an entertaining story, with enough originality to make it more than just a rehash of the Jekyll/Hyde tale. In particular, the portrayal of Jekyll and Hyde was different than what I expected. While Jekyll is generally portrayed as a kind and gentle man (while at the same time a bit cold and aloof) he is usually the more physically attractive side of the split personality. In this movie, Jekyll vaguely resembles Abraham Lincoln - hardly the most attractive man in history, while Hyde is actually strikingly handsome in addition to being charismatic. It seems that the point is that good and evil doesn't always equate to beauty and ugliness.

I thought Paul Massie did a decent job portraying both sides of the split personality, and a young Christopher Lee does well as Paul Allen, a scheming conniver having an affair with Jekyll's wife (Dawn Addams) who befriends Hyde, ultimately leading to his own downfall.

All in all, I quite enjoyed this movie, and am glad I stumbled across it.

7/10
