The Creature is on target, but the rest of the film is so frantic, so manic, it doesn't pause to be sure its effects are registered.

Branagh is very obsessed with chewing the scenery. So much so that he even manages to outdo Robert DeNiro.

Kenneth Branagh has indeed created a monster, but not the kind he originally envisioned.
January 1, 2000
A bloody mess (in both artistry and gore-level) and is extremely difficult to watch.
| Original Score: 2/5

Not frightening, just silly.

As this movie switches, unevenly, from swashbuckling adventure to classic horror to frilly-shirted romance to campiness to graphic gorefest, there's no telling what you're watching.

Branagh doesn't evoke terror, only repulsion.

As wrongheaded as Coppola's Dracula (in different ways), Frankenstein is all bluff, bombast and bargain-basement borrowings from Ken Russell's Gothic.

It is, in a word, dullsville.

Branagh's directing style is soupy and derivative of all the wrong movies.
