Victor Frankenstein (2015) 
Science Bros. ... And Maybe a Monster
2/4 stars

'Victor Frankenstein' is an odd retelling of the Frankenstein mythos. The entirety of this film is focused on the meeting and teaming of Dr. Frankenstein and his assistant Igor. Both characters are well realized and well acted. McAvoy and Radcliffe have a believable working comroadarie. The pair are presented as equals. They bond over their knowledge of science, initially, but become distanced due to Frankenstein's over-obsession to his work. This felt as if it was leading to a nice dramatic conclusion between the two, but the second half drops the ball in almost every area. The whole movie is build up with no payoff. It's essentially 1 1/2 acts of a full story. Short bits of action don't coincide well with the rest of the film. The couple of chases/scuffles are shown with the wrong type of flair for this story. They felt unnecessary, especially during the underwhelming climax in which Frankenstein's reanimated monster makes a very brief appearance. Those expecting anything close to gothic/classic horror will have to look elsewhere. There are pieces resembling a better film somewhere in here.
