'Victor Frankenstein' ends up being just another movie, with a sequel suggestion included. [Full Review in Spanish]
January 9, 2019
[The] actors made the choice to treat this script as award-worthy material instead of the hilarious schlock it is, and the performances are gorgeously melodramatic.
August 23, 2018
The whole film should have just gone for funny, because no one could take this seriously.
July 16, 2018
Both actors are sorely wasted, though they each try their best to enliven the lumbering script.
December 4, 2017
Nowhere near as torturous to endure as last year's I, Frankenstein, but it's bland, dull, and forgettable
October 26, 2017
There is some spectacle here... but the story never achieves lift-off, and with McAvoy eventually over-doing the mad-scientist stuff, it crashes and burns somewhere in predictably storm-swept Scotland.
October 16, 2017
It's not weird-that's actually part of the problem-it's just bad.
July 25, 2017
It's when the movie widens from this core group of characters that it stumbles fatally.
July 23, 2017
An unneeded shallow adaptation of the Mary Shelley classic, trying desperately but unsuccessfully to put a new spin on the familiar Gothic story.
June 1, 2017
There isn't enough emotional backstory given to McAvoy's character to care about whether or not he manages to bring the monster to life.
July 19, 2016
Look for your esprit de corpse elsewhere.
May 5, 2016
It's just not a very good movie, and much of the time, it seems like a colossal waste of McAvoy's considerable talents.
April 28, 2016
Comedy, tragedy, horror, fantasy, romance... all of this is part of Victor Frankenstein, and yet it feels like it lacks all of that. That's bad. [Full review in Spanish]
April 17, 2016
Occasionally [spikes] into dopey fun but mostly [drags] the lake of Frankenstein adaptations past for story beats that are beyond well worn.
April 12, 2016
Maybe it's time to create new monsters instead of trying to bring back the ones we know, sadly, I think everything that we could do with them has been done. [Full review in Spanish]
April 6, 2016
This so-called 'regeneration' is a real hotchpotch.
April 1, 2016
Victor Frankenstein is certainly entertaining and even ambitious, but it's uneven plotting and execution, plus the fact that, at the end of the day, it doesn't really offer anything new - only some rather over-the-top action sequences.
March 2, 2016
What slightly elevates the movie (but doesn't quite redeem due to its almost 2 hour leght) are its costumes and overall production design. [Full Review in Spanish]
March 2, 2016
It is as if they spend so much time getting the monster looking scary that they forgot the whole point of the film was to tell a story.
February 20, 2016
[This] schizophrenic lump of stitched-together cinematic remains hardly deserves the moniker 'alive.'
