Told from Igor's perspective, we see the troubled young assistant's dark origins, his redemptive friendship with the young medical student Viktor Von Frankenstein, and become eyewitnesses to the emergence of how Frankenstein became the man - and the legend - we know today.
Drama Horror Sci-Fi - While the title is Victor Frankenstein, this new take on the
classic horror story is more centered around his sidekick Igor. That
said, fans of both Daniel Radcliffe (who plays Igor) and James McAvoy
(who plays Victor) should definitely enjoy. The tone is more of a
dramatic thriller than a horror film or, as the trailers have
suggested, a dark comedy. Violent content and disturbing images make
the film much too intense for kids, so parents of young Harry
Potter fans should be warned.
Roger EbertFull Review Below Average "Victor Frankenstein” is, despite bravura performances from committed young leads Daniel Radcliffe and James McAvoy, all kinds of obnoxious and pointless. ...the movie's a bloody mess, and a needlessly loud one as well.
