Victor Frankenstein (2015) 5 out of 5 First of all, I am incredibly biased because James McAvoy plays the lead. We all know how the novel by Mary Shelley goes. It’s been ingrained in our minds the imagery of the evil ‘made by Hollywood’ mad scientist bringing to life the undead, followed by manic evil “It’s alive. It’s ALIVE!” shrieking. The novel however, I believe was written from the perspective of the creature. All in all, it’s a sad tale of trying to right (in his mind) a wrong. The inability to forget and forgive an unfortunate past and followed by the inevitable descend into madness because of it. Seeking redemption in all the wrong scientific ways. One thing for sure, James McAvoy makes madness forgivable and desperation endearing. Worthy of strong mention, Mr Potter himself, Daniel Radcliffe. He is flourishing for sure! I loved him in Kill Your Darlings (2013). For some reason IMDB rated this movie ONLY 6/10. My biased, ferociously loyal mind naturally refuses to acknowledge any flaws in the movie. 5 out of 5. 5 out of 5.
