“Right, well first of all I didnu0026#39;t even know that this movie was released back in 2015, I guess it was overshadowed by u0026quot;Victor Frankensteinu0026quot; that was also released that very same year.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eRegardless, I stumbled upon director and writer Bernard Roseu0026#39;s 2015 u0026quot;Frankensteinu0026quot; movie in 2019 and decided to give it a view, based solely on the fact that it was based on the Mary Shelley novel. I didnu0026#39;t even know who starred in the movie, and had not even heard about it prior to sitting down to watch it.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI must say that the movie was a mixture of both good elements and not so good elements. First of all, the cinema world really didnu0026#39;t need another interpretation of the Shelley classic, and spicing it up to be modern really didnu0026#39;t alter that fact. With that being said, then I will also say that this 2015 version is actually one of the more enjoyable adaptions in quite some time.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI had perhaps expected a bit more horror elements, given the novel it is based upon, but this was more of a thriller mixed with drama elements than it was a horror movie, much to my disappointment.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eHowever, I was rather impressed with the cast they managed to get together for this movie. First of all, I am not familiar with Xavier Samuel whom played Adam, but he really put on a great performance in this movie. But the fact that they had the likes of Carrie-Anne Moss, Danny Huston and Tony Todd on the cast list was a pretty nice achievement.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eWhat worked the best in this updated modernized adaptation of Mary Shelleyu0026#39;s timeless classic was the focus on the characters and the storydriven plot. I must admit that I was actually entertained throughout the course of the entire movie. Just a shame that the overall result of u0026quot;Frankensteinu0026quot; was a mediocre one.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe appearance and transformation – or shall we say decay – of Adam, Frankensteinu0026#39;s creation, was actually quite nice, and it was definitely a factor that kept the movie afloat and semi-interesting.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eHaving watched this 2015 rendering of u0026quot;Frankensteinu0026quot;, I can honestly say that while it was entertaining, the movie was also at the some time mundane and generic. And it is hardly the type of movie that you will watch a second time.”
