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

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.

There are no spoilers here, just a real person's true review. I almost did not watch this due to the overall reviews, and that would have been a shame, because I liked it. To all the naysayers looking for a solid track to the original story, this is a bit different. This a a completely different take. Parts of the movie were not so great, but overall, I LOVED IT.Depends on what you're looking for. If you are looking for a story perfectly true to original - not so much. This movie is a wonderful alternative view. I appreciate and really enjoyed the risk-taking and the different view. May not be for everyone, but thoroughly enjoyed it.
