The Bride wields its fanciful melodrama in such a way that it has gotten to the heart of something universal and wounding before you've even realized it.
The Bride might be inspired by Mary Shelley, but its nature seems to draw from Robert Louis Stevenson. Aping the latter's Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, this feels like two separate movies battling for the upper hand, with the end result basically being a tie.
A rare return to Bride of Frankenstein territory, The Bride isn't helped by the obvious comparison to its much-better predecessor
Sting is good but the movie is boring
An endearingly strange little re-imagining of Whale's creepy classic.
Interesting concept that basically does not stand up over time; Beals is just not a good enough actress to carry off her part.
Blasphemously bad rehash of Bride of Frankenstein.
The familiar story takes an interesting if slow divergent path in this update of Whale's classic. Beals and Sting do as well as they can with underwritten material while the Monster, ably played by Clancy Brown and touching on some of Karloff's tender renditions, makes a friend (David Rappaport, perhaps the heart of the piece) and joins the circus. A surprise.
Dr. Frankenstein builds a mate for his creation, but instead decides to turn her into a feminist icon (!), so the original monster leaves to join the circus with a dwarf (!). Pointless and ridiculous "remake" of THE BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN.
Christ I keep wondering why make many Remakes over the years though I have to admit this Remake was a guilty Joy.
Disappointing. The film looks great - the costumes and the sets are wonderful - but there was just something lacking, maybe in the story itself...or in the acting department. ;) Frankly, I wasn't all that interested in the adventures of Viktor and Rinaldo. It felt like they belonged to an entirely different film.
