I was skeptical about this film, mainly because I was expecting it to be a bit "cheesy". But I was wrong. I was completely blown away by the acting in this film. Everyone in this film is amazing. The script is superb. The direction is flawless. It is not only the acting that makes this film great. It is the writing, the directing, the editing, the cinematography. Everything about this film is brilliant. I recommend this film to anyone who loves the original Frankenstein film, or any other film in general. It is absolutely incredible!

I'm not a huge fan of the original Frankenstein. I've only seen it once. And I was really disappointed. I was hoping for a more serious, darker and more thought-provoking movie. But this is a good movie. It's not perfect, but it's definitely better than the original. It's not the greatest movie I've ever seen, but it's definitely a good movie. The performances are very good, and I really enjoyed watching the actors. The story is very well written, and the cinematography is very beautiful. I don't know why this movie didn't do well at the box office. I hope this movie gets better and better at the box office. I give it a 9/10.

I can't remember seeing a film that was so utterly gripping and fascinating. I really think this is the most exciting film I've seen in a long time. I'm sure many of you are thinking that the film is not as good as the book, but I beg to differ. I think the film is superb, and I'm still debating the movie version. The film was a lot more detailed and detailed. The film is full of action and suspense, and I really think that's the best way to describe it. I think that the film is very realistic. The film does have a lot of great scenes, and I really think that this film should be seen by everyone. I think that people who haven't seen the film yet should definitely go and watch it, because it's not a film that's to be missed. I think the film is very very good, and I recommend it to everyone who hasn't seen the film yet. I think that everyone should go and see the film, because it's really a great film, and I really think that everyone should go and see it.

I have watched this film a few times, and I have been very impressed. I am a huge fan of the BBC series and of the Frankenstein movies, so I was very excited when I found out that this film was going to be made. It was a very exciting time in my life. I was a little nervous about the film, because I am not a fan of the BBC series, but I was able to relax. The film was very well done, and it was very easy to watch. The actors were very good, and the film had a great story line. I was not bored at any point, and I was able to follow it. I really liked the ending, because it was so surprising, and I was able to connect with the characters very well. The film is very well made, and the costumes are very nice, and the sets are very good. I think the acting was very good, and the costumes are very nice. The special effects were very good. I think the story was good, and the film was very well done. I would recommend this film to anyone, and I would say that it is one of the best films I have ever seen. It is a very good film, and I recommend it to anyone. I give this film 9 out of 10 stars.

I've watched this movie a few times and I like it. It's not as scary as the first, but the second and third are just as good. The acting is not great, but it is not terrible either. The movie is very funny and a lot of it is very disturbing. The ending is a bit of a letdown, but the ending is a great way to end a movie, and it is a great way to end the series. It is a great movie and I recommend it to anyone who likes horror movies. If you like the first one, you will like this one.

The film is a beautiful tribute to the genre. I found it fascinating to watch the differences between the different actors, especially due to their accents. It is also very good to see that the director is an amateur. The film is not perfect but is certainly worth watching. The actors all do a very good job. The direction is good. The story is a little slow but is worth watching. It is also interesting to see that the director is a novice. Overall, this is a very good film. 9/10

A rather solid production of the original Frankenstein tale. With that said, it's just a shame that the film is so sparsely acted and directed. You can clearly see that the actors are not used to their strengths and the scenes are often rather tedious. In fact, the last 30 minutes or so is a little long for me. The production is good though. The cinematography is excellent. The sets are quite interesting and the production values are quite high. In fact, the acting is just OK for the most part. The main characters are very flat and uninteresting and the writers do not give them much to work with. The other actors are OK. In fact, most of the actors are quite uninteresting. It is no wonder that the movie does not do well at the box office, considering that the story is rather mediocre.

In this film, Meryl Streep plays an American who has been accused of a crime in Paris and sent to a prison where she's the only inmate. She becomes the only prisoner of her kind. It is a very dark film, but it is also very funny. The cast is very good, and Streep is one of the best actresses working today. She is able to portray the role of the crazy, arrogant woman perfectly. The film is also very good, because it is very well directed and the camera work is also very good. It is a very dark film, and I would recommend it to anyone who is a fan of Meryl Streep. I give it a 9/10.

I had been looking forward to seeing this film for quite some time and finally got the opportunity to see it in its entirety. It was a great experience. I am a big fan of the original Frankenstein movie and I was pleased to see that it was better than the 2005 remake. I was also surprised to see how well it did in terms of special effects. It was beautifully filmed, with some incredible sets and makeup. The performances were also great. I don't think that anyone could have done a better job in the role of Dr. Frankenstein. As for the cast, I felt that Tom Cruise did a great job. His performance was quite good, but not great. I thought he did a great job with the role and was very believable. I felt that Jude Law was the most believable of the cast. I was also very impressed with Kate Beckinsale. She was great in the role and her performance was very good. I felt that the only reason that she was not nominated for an Oscar was because of the fact that she was not a major star in the movie. I also thought that Jamie Bell was the best of the bunch. I thought he was good in the role, but not great. I also thought that he was very good in the movie and was very believable. I also felt that the direction that he was given was very good. He did a great job with the movie and I think that he should have won an Oscar. Overall, I thought that the movie was very good. It was very good and I am very happy that it was made. It was definitely worth the money to see it. I would recommend it to anyone who is a fan of the original movie or is a fan of the modern version of Frankenstein. I also think that it would be a good movie for people who like a good mystery. It was a very good movie and I would recommend it to anyone. I would give it a 9 out of 10.

I have a feeling that many people were under the impression that this was a 'bridal/family' movie, but it's actually a comedy. The plot is basically a big city family who are all connected by a common ancestor. This ancestor happens to be a woman who is a vegetarian, which they don't realise until they go to the city to visit her, which is a big city. The girl, who has an enigma personality disorder, has been living with her mother (a real mum, who has issues of her own), and the mother is very protective of her daughter. The daughter wants to start a family, but she thinks it's not a good idea. The mother, who is also in a relationship with the neighbour, is also worried about the daughter. Eventually, she agrees to let the daughter have a baby, but the daughter has an enigma personality disorder, which means she doesn't want to meet the baby. At this point the family is confused and the father is very supportive. The mother and daughter have been very supportive towards each other, but the daughter starts to get jealous and starts to bully the neighbour's daughter. The father is left with nothing to do. I don't want to give away the ending, but there are a lot of scenes that I really liked and that are very funny. The comedy is very very good. I really enjoyed it. I also enjoyed the mother and daughter, and I would recommend it to anyone who likes comedy.

This is a very, very good film. I don't know why I didn't find it on the shelf of my local library. I saw it at a friend's house and I went home and rented it. I was so pleased with it that I had to go out and buy it. I have to say that the movie is very, very good. I really like the way the film is filmed and I think it's one of the most interesting movies I've ever seen. It is not a typical horror movie. It is a very serious film about a very serious subject. I think the movie is very, very good. I would recommend it to anyone. It is a very, very good film.

Well, I have to admit that I wasn't looking forward to seeing this film, but I ended up enjoying it a lot. I am not the biggest fan of Frankenstein (the movie was actually good though), but I thought the director did a good job with the movie. The characters are likable and interesting. They are not quite as dumb as the movie would have you believe, but you can't help but feel sympathy for them as they go through the trials and tribulations that come with being a scientist in the 1800's. The way that they portray the war between the two species was very realistic and interesting. The actors did a good job with the material. I really don't understand why some people are bashing this film. I thought it was a good film and I would recommend it to anyone. I think that it is a good film for any fan of the original film. I give it a 7/10.

If you've never seen the original version of Frankenstein, or have not seen any of the recent live-action adaptations of the tale, this film is a good introduction. It's certainly not a bad film, but it's nothing to write home about either. It's okay, but nothing great. What the film does do well is establish a strong sense of atmosphere. The setting is nice and atmospheric, and the camera work is quite good. The film is a little slow to get going, but once the production crew gets going it's quite entertaining. The acting is good, especially by Tom Hiddleston, who plays the title character. Charlize Theron, who plays Mary, is good, but she doesn't have much to do in the film. Jeremy Irons is good as the doctor, and he has a good physical presence. The film is enjoyable and entertaining, but I don't think it's anything special.

This movie is a stunning study of human emotions, as well as a tale of the human condition. It's a film that will appeal to the entire family. It is a very powerful film that will leave you wanting more. The performances are superb, especially from the cast. It is a film that will leave you in tears and wanting to see it again and again.

This is one of those movies that made me think about my own experiences. I've always been fascinated with all kinds of weird, grotesque and disturbing movies. My favorite movie is probably Scream, but I also like many other ones like Demon, The Hunger Games, etc. These are all movies that are in the "other" category, but they all have something in common. You can find this film on your local video store shelves, but I wouldn't bother to rent it. It's a good movie, but nothing special. There is also a small scene that was probably cut out of the movie, but it's not worth mentioning. The movie is just weird, and the acting is very good. This is a movie that is worth watching, but not because it's very good, but because it's very weird.

I didn't know what to expect from this film, and I was pleasantly surprised. It was well-acted, well-directed, and I found it to be quite enjoyable. There is a definite "camp" atmosphere to this movie. The actors are all great actors, and I think that they have worked very hard to bring the characters to life. The story is compelling, and I found myself drawn into the story and my feelings for the characters. I was glad that the movie was only two hours long, as it could have been quite long and slow. I think that the movie will be enjoyed by many, and I hope that more films like this one will be made.

This is a movie that is so unlike anything I have ever seen. In many ways, it is the most ambitious film I have ever seen. I have never seen anything like it. It's so detailed, and so real. You can really see the changes the director made to the story. You really get a sense of how much work went into this film. The acting is outstanding. It is absolutely brilliant. I can't say enough good things about it. This is truly a film that you should see at least once. If you are a fan of horror films, this is definitely one you should see. The story is very unique, and the way the story is told is very effective. This is a movie that you should see.

Patrick photo

I was looking forward to seeing this film as it was coming out on DVD. I really loved the book, but the film adaptation is more of a homage. The book was very unique, and it was very disturbing to read it. The film has a similar style, but it is still very disturbing. The acting was very good, and the story was very intriguing. I would recommend this film to anyone who likes horror films.

I saw this movie with a friend, and it really did give me the chills. It's very scary, I think the actors are actually good. I think it is the first movie that I've seen that has actually been realistic, since most horror movies are not that good. It's not scary, but it is really good. I think it is more of a drama and a horror movie, but it's good, so it's good. I recommend it. I'm not really good at describing movies, but I would say that this is a good movie. I also like this movie, and I think it's a good movie, and I like this movie, so it's good. I recommend this movie.

I really don't understand how people can hate this movie. I thought it was great. The cast was amazing, and the story was so cool. The cinematography was great and the editing was great. I thought it was one of the best horror movies I've seen. It was a bit over-the-top in some parts, but I was entertained the whole time. I think the most important thing about this movie is that it has a great story and characters. The story is not too complicated, but it's still good. The characters are not well developed, but they're still great. The characters were very interesting. The ending is very sad, but it's good. I really don't understand why people are so upset about this movie. It's a great movie. I think that people just don't get it. I really like this movie. I give it a 9 out of 10.

I have been a fan of Ben Wheatley ever since I saw a short clip of him as a kid in his first short film. So when I saw this I was pretty excited to see what he could do, but not as much as I was excited to see him perform. He has the gift of doing just about anything, whether it is being in a movie, or performing on stage. He has done this amazing amount of films and I have to say I was very impressed with this film. It is not perfect, it is not anything that I would say is the "greatest film ever", but it is definitely worth seeing, and is a great adaptation of a very famous story. The story is about a man, Walter Sullivan, who is a playwright and a director. He is a very intelligent man and is very creative, but he also has a weakness for science fiction, which he doesn't like to talk about. He has a great love of movies and this has affected his life. He goes to a play with a friend who tells him that the play is being filmed and they want to see it. Walter goes to the theater with his friend, and the film begins. The film is about a man named Victor Frankenstein, who is a scientist who creates a monster, which he calls "The Monster". Victor does not like this creature, and he creates a monster with his friend and another man named Karloff. It is a very long film, and I don't think I will ever watch it again, but it is very impressive. It is very visually spectacular, and the sound is also great. The performances are very good. I love this film, and I recommend it to anyone who is a fan of Ben Wheatley. I think it is an amazing film and one of the best films I have seen.

This is a great movie, it is a great movie, but it is not one of the best movies of all time. I agree with most of the other reviews, the acting was great, the special effects were great, but the story line was not. I did not see the original Frankenstein, I saw the 2010 remake, and I must say, that the 2010 version was better. It was a lot better, I am sure, because it was based on the original Frankenstein, which was also very good. The 2010 version was very good, but it was not as good as the original, and it was very bad. I also agree with the other reviews, this is a very good movie, but it is not one of the best movies of all time.

This was one of the best of the genre and one of the best films of the year. The best thing about this film is the cast. A great cast including the always reliable William Katt, Ed Begley Jr, Patrick Wilson, and the wonderful Terrence Howard. The film is the first in a new series of films by director, David Cronenberg and he directs this one very well. This film was not only good but it was a good movie. It is definitely a must see. I give it an 8/10.

I was really surprised by this film. It was very original and well-done. I was very impressed with the amount of gore and the violence. It was also quite sad and realistic. The story itself is quite disturbing and creepy. It was a very well-done film. If you want to see a film that is similar to "The Horror of Frankenstein" you should definitely check out this film.

This is the best movie I have seen in a long time. I was skeptical about seeing this movie, since I had heard so much about it and because it is a remake. However, I was pleasantly surprised. I was pleasantly surprised that the film was better than I had expected. The acting is great, the story is good, and the script is very, very good. The only thing I did not like about the movie was the ending. The ending was just a little too neat. The story was good, the acting was great, and the script was very, very good. I would recommend this movie to anyone who is into horror, or if you are a fan of classic films, or if you just want to see a good film.

This film is the best of the many imitations of the classic Frankenstein film. The acting is superb, the script is superb, and the music is superb. The film is about a young boy, named Walter, who lives in the town of Grosse Pointe. The town is suffering from a local plague and the town doctor is being evicted from his house. The doctor is also a very unhappy man and his wife is also having a difficult time in her marriage. Walter has a strange friend named Flynn. Flynn is a very peculiar and fascinating man, and he and Walter talk a lot. Walter and Flynn talk about things like time travel and how the past can influence the future. Flynn also talks about his girlfriend who is getting married and how she is not very happy about it. The film is about the lives of the people in the town, and the relationships they have with each other. There are also some strange occurrences and other things that happen in the town. This is a very good film and a must see.

From the trailers, I was expecting a bad movie, and I was surprised. The plot is quite interesting and interesting characters, even though the plot itself is not as interesting as it could have been. I would definitely recommend seeing this movie if you're a horror fan, or even if you're not a horror fan, but if you like a good story, and a good movie, you should definitely see it. I personally found the characters very interesting, and the director did a great job in directing them. There were several scenes that I was shocked to see how they played out, but the director did a great job with them. I give it a 7/10. It was an entertaining movie and I was very surprised by it.

I saw this film at the Edinburgh Film Festival, and it was fantastic. It's definitely a film for adults, it's a little more "grown-up" than I would have expected, but still very "grown-up" in its style. It is very funny, and definitely not a comedy that is going to win an award, but still very funny. It's not going to win any awards, but it's a very funny film, and if you're a fan of The Godfather, it's probably going to be very funny. I did think that it was a bit slow, it did drag at times, and it was slightly long, but still, I think that it was worth seeing. I think it's a film that you need to see, and if you're a fan of The Godfather, then I think you'll love it.

This is a very good film, and one of the best I've seen. It's been a while since I've seen it, but it's the only film I've ever seen where the director did not have to rely on special effects. There's no "special" in this film, which is a real plus. The story is very good, and the film is well-made. I have a few issues with the film. One is that there are some parts of the film that are very graphic. I'm not sure if it's because of the script, or if it's the director's choice. But it's a big problem for me. I'd like to see the film without these scenes, but it would have been better if he had included them in the film. The other issue is that the film is very long. It feels like it goes on forever. There are some parts where it feels like it's going on forever, but other parts feel like it's only a little bit long. I think the film could have used a little bit more editing. But overall, this is a very good film. It's very well-made, and it's very entertaining. It's also very well-acted. I think it's one of the best films of its kind. The director is also very good. The actors are very good, and the cinematography is also very good. The film is very well-made, and it's a very good film. I give it a 9 out of 10.

I saw this movie on video at the start of this year, and, since I am a big fan of the original film, I thought it would be a good idea to review it. The plot was good, the acting was good, and the special effects were good. However, I have to say that I am very disappointed with the way the movie ended. For a lot of the movie, I thought that there was some promise. I was looking forward to seeing a sequel, and I was hoping that there would be more of the same. However, I was disappointed with the way that the story ended. I think the main problem was the pacing. I have seen a lot of movies that are very slow moving, and I think that this movie was very slow. It was almost like the pacing was done with a tape-recorder. You could tell that the movie was done on the same day that it was done. When I was watching the movie, I was thinking that there were several other things that needed to be done, and I could not wait for the movie to be over. I was really disappointed that the movie ended like that. However, the movie did have a lot of good qualities. It was interesting, I liked the special effects, and the acting was good. I think that this movie could have been a lot better if the pacing had been a little better. However, if you want to see a good movie, and want to see a good special effects movie, then this is the movie for you. I give this movie a B.

This is one of those movies that makes you think about what it would be like if you were a scientist or a psychologist. You just don't know if you would be scared, or thrilled, or angry. I don't think that it is necessary to have a genius in the movie to be a good story. It is a movie that should be watched by people of all ages, and I recommend it to everyone.

Gareth Edwards has been a director I've been a fan of for a long time, and while I haven't seen many of his films I've certainly enjoyed them all. The critically-panned 'Monsters' did not do Edwards any favours, but his next two films, 'Citizenfour' and 'Monster', were solid enough. 'Monsters' is the first film I've seen of his I've seen, and it's a very good one. It has some problems, the most obvious of which is the story, and Edwards' own delivery. It's a bit too long, and has a couple of parts that just feel unnecessary, but it's still a very good film. Edwards makes a good use of the film's limited budget, but there are also a couple of issues with the film's production. The film looks gorgeous, and Edwards does a good job with the camera work, but there are times when it feels like the film is just going through the motions. It's also never fully explained what the monster is, and even when we do know it's there it's never quite clear what it is. The ending is a little too quick, but the film's worth it, even if it's not as good as Edwards' best film, 'The Great Gatsby'.

Horrible acting, terrible plot, not scary, and not scary at all. The whole thing is about a failed experiment that goes wrong, and what follows is a bunch of random incidents. You really have to wonder how this film could get any better than this. I gave it a 7 out of 10, but I can't give it a 5. This is a really bad movie, and I'm glad I didn't pay to see it.

Nicole photo

I think this film was a bit overrated. But I thought the acting was good. And the story was good. It was a bit slow at first, but once it got going, I was hooked. I thought the ending was very good. I recommend this film to people who like a good story and a good performance. I think the movie is worth watching. I gave it a 9/10.

The critics, of course, were always going to pick this one out as the greatest horror movie ever made. And they did. And they were right. But it's no "Sleepy Hollow" and no "The Wicker Man" and no "Suspiria". "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" is a lot more interesting than the others. It's a bit too campy for some people, but it's certainly more genuine than most films of the genre. And it's never really boring. It's just that some of the actors can't get their act together, which is a bit of a shame. But the real problem with this film is that the direction is too "me-me" for a film of this type. There are no good shots. There are some nice shots, but the rest of the movie is just boring. There are some good things to be said about this film, like the ending and the cinematography, but it's not enough to save it from the other problems of this movie. I think it's the weakest of the three films and that's not necessarily a bad thing. It's just that it's so far from being a good movie that it hurts.

I loved this movie, even though I'm a huge fan of "The Mummy". It's very sad that it's only at #28 in IMDB's top 250. I'm not even sure what people are rating it so low on. I love it, and I'm not surprised it's at #28. I think the actors are great, and the story is great. I thought the film was very well done. I think this is the best film of the year. This is a must see movie, and I can't wait to see it again!

I am an avid film buff, and have seen a few of the classics in the past few years. Frankenstein was not the only film that was reviewed as a classic, and I thought that this movie was a fantastic addition to the genre. The cast was superb, and the story was interesting. I had never heard of the film before, but it was great to see that a movie like this could be made. It is a shame that so many people did not like it. The film was a masterpiece and was very well done. I highly recommend this movie to anyone.

I was surprised that this movie didn't get more than 3 stars on IMDb. I am not a big fan of Frankenstein movies and I did not expect this to be good. The first half of the movie was boring, the second half was very good. The movie was much better than I thought it would be. It has some very good ideas and a few very good scenes. The acting is good but the dialogue could have been a bit better. The whole movie was very intense and it is hard to sit still for the whole movie. I don't know why people gave this movie less than 7 stars. I don't think this movie deserves more than 5 stars.

If you are looking for an Oscar winning performance then I would say that "Frankenstein" will be a waste of time. But if you want to see an excellent performance from one of the greatest actors of our time then I would say that you will not be disappointed with this film. Colin Farrell is the star of this film. He is a fine actor and his performance was very impressive. The film was quite disturbing at times and it seemed as if it was a period piece and not a horror film. However the film is quite a good movie and I would recommend it to anyone.

I was expecting this movie to be good, but unfortunately I think it was pretty good. There was some slight issues with the acting and some of the characters (there were a few) were a bit flat. I do have to say that it was really interesting and very well-acted. There was a lot of gore, nudity, and violence. The film also had a very realistic tone to it. The horror was of the low-budget variety. It was a lot of fun and I really enjoyed it. I was also really surprised by the ending, I think the director knew how to end it and I think he did it well. I think it was very well-acted, though. I don't think it's a movie for everyone, but I think that it is worth seeing. It's definitely worth your time.

I really liked this movie. It had great pacing, and the acting was pretty good. I'm not a fan of the original film, but it's always entertaining to see a remake. The actors were pretty good in this movie, and I enjoyed the characters they chose to portray. I think they nailed the old Frankenstein. It was dark, and it was the perfect mix of modern and classic. The music in the movie was very good, and it fit the movie perfectly. The special effects in the movie were very well done. I was very surprised at how well the special effects were done, but I did not think they were too over the top. The monster was pretty realistic, and he was a real monster. It was actually scary, and I did like the end of the movie. Overall, I think this movie is worth watching. It was pretty entertaining, and I liked the characters it chose to portray.
