Told from Igor's perspective, we see the troubled young assistant's dark origins, his redemptive friendship with the young medical student Viktor Von Frankenstein, and become eyewitnesses to the emergence of how Frankenstein became the man - and the legend - we know today.
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. Written by
20th Century Fox

How could have Igor learned to read much less become an expert on anatomy? His status in the circus was so low it is unlikely anyone would have invested in teaching him the rudiments of the 3Rs. See more »
You know this story. The crack if lightning. A mad genius. An unholy creation. The world, of course, remembers the monster, not the man. But sometimes, when you look closely, there's more to a tale. Sometimes the monster is the man.
I've been with the circus for as long as I can remember. Circuses like to think of themselves as families. But, of course, each one has its clown.

A different and good interpretation of Mary Shelley's novel
Despise the bad reviews from some viewers on IMDb I did enjoy Victor Frankenstein. There's been a lot of movies based on Mary Shelley's novel, some bad ones and some good ones, and I thought this version belongs to the good ones. It's a different approach but entertaining to watch. Daniel Radcliffe proves that he can act something else then Harry Potter. His collaboration with Victor Frankenstein played by James McAvoy works perfectly well in this dark picture. There are plenty enough moments of disgusting creatures and scenes to make the more sensation seekers happy. Why some people rate it so low remains a mystery to me. There are thousands of worse movies then this. I truly enjoyed it and I'm sure a lot of people will do also.
