modern revision
7 October 2017 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Married scientists Elizabeth (Carrie-Anne Moss) and Victor Frankenstein (Danny Huston) reanimates Adam (Xavier Samuel) although he only retains the mind of a baby. He starts to deteriorate with deformities. The scientists try to euthanize him but he is too strong and too hard to kill. He escapes but causes chaos and is attacked by the angry public.

I like the idea of bringing Frankenstein into the modern world. I like doing some of the classic story elements such as the little girl and the angry mob. Around the midway point, the film loses me. The cop taking him out back and shooting him in the head is completely wrong. There are some more wrong-headed stuff like a voice-over suggesting an advanced mind which isn't right. The A-list stars Moss and Huston leave after the first act and only return for the last confrontation. Samuel is perfectly fine. This is an intriguing idea but it doesn't come to much more than an indie.
