Critic Reviews for Frankenstein

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (1)

  • Rose doesn't force his monster into a metaphor for anything; he just brings the narrative into the present day and allows it to resonate as one about the people who are shunted to society's outskirts and treated as less than human.

  • An offbeat updating of Mary Shelley's classic Gothic tale that strikingly mixes grind-house gore with high-brow ideas.

  • With very few exceptions the risk pays off and Frankenstein manages to be smart and engrossing. However, because of the sharp execution of this well-thought-out retelling, when flaws do arise they are impossible to ignore.

  • Bernard Rose's Frankenstein reboot is a welcome update to Shelley's long-remade classic, adapting old themes to a new, more tech savvy reality.

    Mar 10, 2016 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…
  • Bernard Rose has constructed a refreshing take on a horror classic with a freakishly fascinating performance from Xavier Samuel. Frankenstein is tragic and sentimental underneath with a gloriously hideous exterior.

  • No neck bolts or flat-top 'do here. This Frankenstein is a thoroughly modern monster who doesn't fit into our class-based society.
