    I give it 3.5 stars. I don't typically like my sci-fi movies too dark, unlike other people these days, and I was not sure if this one was dark or played for laughs prior to watching it. Frankenstein movies can go either way. So that was the reason I was a little hesitant about getting it. Otherwise I wanted to watch Daniel Radcliffe in something new, and I liked the Victorian look of it. Well, the movie is mostly serious but it has its funny moments. Daniel Radcliffe is fun to watch as Igor, who is not the "yes master" servant generally envisioned, and James McAvoy is great at playing mad man Victor Frankenstein and he's fun to watch, too. So although it's a little gory (but not too bad), I thought it was a pretty good movie.

    Perhaps because I suffered through a less convincing "update" of this venerable tale, 2014's largely flaccid I, Frankenstein 3D, Victor Frankenstein didn't strike me as being quite as bad as initial critical assessments at the time of its theatrical release had led me to believe. The film has more than its fair share of problems, but it also has some exciting sequences and the basic premise is decent enough, even if the realization of that premise repeatedly stumbles. Fans of the cast or those entranced by Shelley's source novel may want to check this out as a rental if nothing else. Technical merits are generally strong for those considering a purchase.

    Suprsingly good

    The directing seems very Guy Ritchie a la Sherlock Holmes, but in a good way. Story told from the perspective of Igor, and casts Victor in an idealistic light. Throughout the story there are questionable parts, such as why someone who walked bent over for so long could walk normally, all of a sudden, in one of the early scenes... but if you get over these minor flaws the story seems good overall. I would certainly watch it again, and a second in the series would be interesting if they keep the same style and charm.

    Not your usual Frankenstein

    The Frankenstein story has been done so many times that it's hard to come up with something new. This one does it. It tells the story of a circus hunchback who is cured by the good doctor, becomes his assistant , given the name Igor (pronounced EE-gore), and then becomes Victor's partner. The movie is done through Igor's eyes and this gives it a fresh look. Both male leads (James McAvoy & Daniel Radcliffe) are excellent. The story has romance, action and a cool looking monster.

    Not for classic monster enthusiasts

    A refreshing take on the old classic. Man's irrational attempt to control nature gone horribly wrong!! It's a solid storyline, but could definitely use more action!! More monster, less creator. The finale leaves you wishing that you had spent your time watching Robert Downey Jr. play Sherlock Holmes,,,,,,,AGAIN!! It is a fun ride at times, but not really worth the time. I picked up my copy for $3.99, and I wouldn't pay another dime......

    Another Remake, Another OK Movie

    This movie was a Black Friday purchase, when they are cheap enough, why not. For the price the movie was decent entertainment but it was definitely not the best Frankenstein movie I have ever seen. The story was told from Igor's perspective and it was entertaining enough if you didn't have anything more pressing on your schedule. The story seemed padded and got off track a couple times.

    Better Then I Expected

    This was one of those movies that when I heard it was coming out, I wasn't expecting much from it... after hearing it wasn't to bad I decided to give it a try anyway. As it turns out the movie really wasn't that bad. Essentially its a retelling of the classic tale that we are all familiar with. While another one of those movies that will never win an Oscar, if you are in the mood for something a little different, this might be worth checking out!

    Exciting adaptation of the Frankenstein story

    The actors were all great in the roles, especially Daniel Radcliffe and Igor and James McAvoy as the eccentric scientist Victor Frankenstein. The set pieces, effects, and action were all very grand. The story concentrated more on the interaction btwn Igor and Victor rather than on the Frankenstein monster himself, yet still a good and exciting version. Although the ending felt a little rushed. If you're a fan, it is definitely worth to check this out.
