Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Critics Consensus: A re-imagining without the imagining, Victor Frankenstein plays at providing a fresh perspective on an oft-told tale, but ultimately offers little of interest that viewers haven't already seen in superior Frankenstein films.

Story about friendship loses focus in action and violence.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Victor Frankenstein is an action-oriented update of Mary Shelley's classic novel that focuses largely on the friendship between Victor Frankenstein (James McAvoy) and Igor (Daniel Radcliffe); it has some blood and undeniably scary/horrific images, but it's not really a horror film. Expect plenty of fighting, punching, bashing, and kicking, plus some knives and shooting and monster violence. Some blood is shown, and there are monsters, explosions, and fire; minor characters die. Characters kiss, and a sex act is implied but not shown; there's also some minor sex talk. The main character drinks heavily during one sequence, but it appears to have no lasting effects. Language is infrequent but includes a couple of "s--t"s, as well as "damn," and "oh my God." There's a reference to a minor character being gay.
