Editorial Reviews

Julie Delpy, William Hurt, Donald Sutherland. Taking the TV miniseries and editing it into a film, this adaptation of Mary Shelley's hauntingly delicious novel follows the book closer than ever before! Unable to inspire love, the creature brought to life from dead tissue vows to avenge the man who created and abandoned him. 2004/color/3 hrs., 24 min/NR/fullscreen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hallmark goes Gothic October 28, 2004
By Crypt
Format:DVD
Ever since I experienced the mild disappointment of Kenneth Branagh's film "Mary Shelly's Frankenstein", I had dreamed that someone somewhere would finally do a truly faithful film version of the greatest horror story ever told. I think I may have found what I was looking for in this three and a half hour long gothic melodrama. Most of Shelly's story is left completely intact with only some minor changes and additions. One significant addition is Victor's close bond with his teacher Professor Waldman (brilliantly played by William Hurt with a delightful German accent). This friendship is never fully explored in the novel. Another is Victor's ongoing hallucinations brought on by shock and brain fever. The novel mentions nightmares, but not hallucinations. Victor's childhood is explored deeper than it was in the book and presents us with a genesis of his morbid obsessions with life and death. It also fleshes out his relationship with Elizabeth. Another change is Victor and Henry's trip to Ireland, instead they return to Ingolstadt. Lastly, the part in the novel where the creature is shot after trying to save a drowning girl is left out. There are some other minor additions, but nothing significant enough to mention. So what we have here is something much, much closer to Shelly than even Branagh's version from 1993. It contains all of the questions asked in the novel, all of the dynamics of Shelly's vision, and all of the tragedy without being as over-the-top and bombastic as a Hollywood produced film. Now, is it a good movie? I admit I'm not a fan of Hallmark. Their films are far to warm, fuzzy and unrealistically optimistic for me, and I find many of them to be rather revolting. This is why I was amazed when I saw Frankenstein. Hallmark producing a depress-fest like this?! Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally, the Mary Shelley Classic Gets Its Due October 29, 2004
Format:DVD
FRANKENSTEIN is a three and a half hour epic that recreates Mary Shelley's classic tale of the dichotomy of science vs humanities in a keenly wrought script by Mark Kruger. For all its length and emphasis on special effects, sets, costumes, flashbacks etc, this film produced by Hallmark for television proves its mettle when viewed non-stop on the recently released DVD.

Director Kevin Connor wisely emphasizes the morality issues in Shelley's novel and does not opt for the usual so-weird-that-it-becomes-comical focus on the manmade monster (a sensitive Luke Goss) of Dr. Frankenstein (Alec Newman). Through a series of flashbacks (the tale opens with on an ice-stranded ship captained by a man (Donald Sutherland) in search of his own scientific truths. Enter Dr. Victor Frankenstein, ill from his pursuit of the monster he created in his German laboratory under the tutelage of Professor Waldman (William Hurt). The film flashbacks to Victor's childhood and the impact of the death of his mother (Julie Delphy) that drives Victor to understand 'death' in hopes of being able to reverse it. We meet his adopted sister Elizabeth (Nicole Levin) who is later to become his love and his wife, and his childhood friend Henry (Dan Stevens) who will follow Victor through the trials of his life.

With tremendous veracity we see Victor's motivation to overcome death in a laboratory that is not eerie but wonderfully life-affirming, a place where he restores life to frogs and dogs killed by accidents. Victor becomes obsessed with his work and eventually creates a 'man' from the body parts of the dead laying in open graves in the paupers' graveyard. Using the electrical current from lightning he brings his creature to life - and from this point on the error of his creation pursues him.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE BEST Novel to Screen Adaptation Yet!! October 6, 2004
Format:DVD
I just finished watching this 4 hour epic masterpiece and have to say this is the most accurate portrayal of Mary Shelley's novel yet. We have all seen Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee portray the Creature and although these are extremely classic in filmgoers minds eyes (mine included), there has never been an adaptation that has followed the events in the book so closely. When Kenneth Brannaugh originally announced he was filming "Mary Shelley's Frankenstein", I was very happy that someone was going to film the novel. Well, this turned out to be my biggest movie going disappointment ever. The reality is that I don't think anyone could ever film a worse version than that on such an overblown budget. Hollywood has always had a history of butchering probably the one of the most intellegent horror novel ever written...UNTIL NOW!

I had no expectations for this film due to the fact it is a made for TV movie. Considering it was also a production of the USA network, I had my hesitations. I just decided to watch it by chance only because of the name and was completely won over. From the very first scenes with Donald Sutherland as the captain of the Prometheus when he finds Frankenstein in the arctic to the amazing scenes of the creature's first breath. WOW!! This is incredibly powerful stuff. Not only are the portrayals and sequence of events true to the book but the laboratory equipment (which has always exceded the technology of the times in past movies) is what you would expect without being overdone. In my opinion, the creation scene is one of the most powerful ever filmed. I do NOT diminish the Clive/Karloff version in any way because that is truly the MOST classic but this is what you envision when you read the book.
