This is the Best Version!
25 March 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This Version of Frankenstein is the best!

I won't even waste my time criticizing Branagh's Version. Branagh's Version stays with the book until it is time for the monster to kill Victor's wife,then Branagh throws in this ridiculous resurrection of Elizabeth scene which was totally horrible. Branagh ended his movie exactly as the book ended with the monster and his dead master floating away on a sheet of Ice burning up.

This Version of Frankenstein was made in 1993 for TNT. It was one of the first original movies made for that network, Gettysburg premiered that same year on that station.

This version stays pretty close to the basic plot of the book but it adds a twist. The Death of Elizabeth is exact to how she died in the book, the monster breaks her neck, the rest of the scene was different from the book.

The film adds some new twists to the story that make it all the more interesting. William is a teenager in this version not a child and has a somewhat different role.

This version remains pretty faithful to the basic plot of the book not the details of the book like Branagh attempts to stick to in his version but pathetically failed at towards the end.

John Cameron did a superb job with the music score for this film!

I give this film 4 stars. Excellent viewing for a rainy day!
