Victor Frankenstein [Movie Review]

The movie makers are getting more imaginative and creative nowadays by making new movies based on the original ones - Maleficent, The Hobbit to name a few.
Meet Your makers
Aptly as the poster says, the movie will unravel the story of Frankenstein's monster.
Thanks to +ChurpChurp  for the invitation to the Churpremiere of Victor Frankenstein.

Victor met a nameless hunchback clown in a circus and released him from the circus after he saw the brilliant mind Igor had while saving his love, Lorelei.
The nameless hunchback clown
Victor named the nameless clown as Igor, after his flatmate that was never home. He set up Igor's back and made him stand straight.

Feeling indebted to Victor's kindness, Igor put his knowledge and capable hands in helping Victor with his project without knowing what Victor was doing with all the body parts. Victor's dream was to bring back dead body parts to live again. Igor corrected the experiments whenever Victor did wrong and almost everytime, both of them managed to bring back the parts to live.

Igor, meet Gordon.
When Victor finally introduced Igor to Gordon, a creature created from various animals parts, Igor was a bit skeptical that they could bring Gordon to live. When the experiment succeeded, Igor was more than happy to help Victor in his presentation to the medical team in Victor's school. However, the experiment went haywire and Gordon became violent and chased both of them before finally killed by Victor.

The monster
Eager to correct his wrong, even with Igor's opposition, Victor kept experimenting. More ever with the newly found monetary fund, he managed to get everything that he wanted and more.

Will Victor's dream to see death as a beginning of new life materializes?
At what cost?

Plot: 3.2/ 5.0. In the beginning, I was quite happy with the direction of the plot. After some time, it got quite fast that you could sense no character building. Then it bores me to my sleep. I also could not decide whether the movie is a comedy or a horror. Perhaps it was just me, but the cinematography was a bit shaky that made me lose interest in the movie way too early during the premiere.

The Actors:  4.2/ 5.0. James McAvoy did a very good job as a deranged and imaginative young doctor. His emotion portrayal was spot on. Whereas Daniel as Igor was just OK. We are so used to see him playing the lead that this character seems too small for him. 

Will I watch it again: Perhaps I will so that I can watch what I was missing (dozed off at some parts during the premiere). But again, perhaps not worth rewatching it.
