Quotes

Dr. Victoria Frankenstein: [musing after the funeral of her son, Henry] Life's a product of biological processes. I've studied it in its minutest, most mundane detail. It's nothing miraculous, nothing wondrous. Death is its end. No resurrection. No eternal life. He's gone and nothing's going to bring him back. I'm too late.
Dr. Henry Clerval: What for?
Dr. Victoria Frankenstein: To save him.
Dr. Henry Clerval: You're trying to serve the... most precious of human needs. Your work is driven by love.

I think this is my new favourite Frankenstein version....
5 August 2013 | by Manuel-HoerthSee all my reviews

I always thought it would make sense to set the story in modern times, since now we truly have the technology to do stuff like that. But more importantly (like Frankenstein) we are too obsessed with science and lack the moral and ethical restraint that would prevent us from doing such things.

So I think it fits great into modern times... but I always imagined a modern Dr. Frankenstein to look somewhat like Gunther von Hagens... (-; But I also like their take on it and the way they told the story it made sense to have a "Victoria Frankenstein" instead of a "Victor". And also the film of course by it's very nature of putting it in a present day setting naturally can't stay 100% true to the book. But still, I think it wasn't any less true to the book than the bulk of the other film adaptations and the ending was better and more realistic than in most other film adaptations.

And I love that even though every Frankenstein movie is always very different, they still always have little references to the previous movies. Like in this one it's the tank, which is very similar to the 1994 as well as the 1910 version. And let's not forget the infamous "It's alive!" line as well as the lightning, the electrical surge, the bolts and the cap. (those things are all references to the other movies, as they are not present in the book)

Anyway, go give this version a chance... you won't regret it.
