Monster Masterpiece
1 March 2016 | by blackboxlaSee all my reviews

In short, despite Frankenstein remakes, rehashes and adaptations,Bernaed Rose's ability to effectively reinvent the wheel for the modern generation, highlighting the perils of frighteningly cloning technologies, speaks volumes for his ability as a filmmaker. This kind of reworking is what keeps Frankenstein's grotesque yet sentient monster well and truly alive almost 200 years after Shelley's masterpiece and Rose's adaptation is certainly tantamount to the original novel's subtitle as it really is a modern Prometheus.

Xavier Samuel as Adam who perfectly depicts just "how mutable are our feelings" as his acting range is indescribably electric. It was also a pleasure to see Tony Todd (Candyman) reunite with Rose to play Eddie, a blind homeless father figure who does his utmost to guide Adam down the straight and narrow although his efforts ultimately fail to bridle Adam's inner beast. Also, having a prostitute explain the birds and the bees (in a particularly graphic YouTubian manner) brought some particularly humorous yet ultimately tender and heart wrenching moments to the film. Compliments are also due to Adam's "parents" with Carrie-Anne Moss playing the sympathetic/apathetic mother to a tee and Danny Huston putting in a mean performance as the ruthlessly thick-skinned monomaniac, Viktor Frankenstein.
