My sister and I read Mary Shelley's novel before watching this, and I must say, I'm impressed that it followed the text as much as it did. It banged through the book like a breathless madman, but at least it got the main points across: the 1700s atmosphere, the love story, the intelligent monster, the family in the woods, the ice and polar settings. Characterization changed up a little. The main difference in the film from the book is the new motivation added for Dr Frankenstein's creation: to bring back loved ones. Not in the book.
But the movie by itself was quite breathless, nice quality, and great choice of actors. DeNiro as the monster was different, but it worked out nicely. Don't miss out the gradual change of the monster's face and speech. Also, nice music. Beautiful, just beautiful.
One of the worst films I have ever seen. Hated every bit of it. Very disappointed.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
