I'm writing this review to save as many people as I can from wasting their time or money on it. I have only just recently read Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein or The Modern Prometheus". So, from that standpoint I had hoped for a lot out of this film. The writer evidently did actually read the novel and wasn't referring to the cinematic versions of Frankenstein. This is what compelled me to stick with it. I'm sorry I did. Although you feel as if you are going to get a great pay off in the end. Meet "the creature", the tormented soul from the novel that declares war on humanity for shunning him (spoiler alert) you don't. You get your hopes up, as the principle character continues to insist that the creature isn't a mindless animal, but a reasonable intelligent and sensitive being that is only misunderstood. And if you have read the book, you know this is true enough. However, the ending proves that he was wrong, the "monster" is nothing more than a savage, inarticulate beast that simply kills because it knows nothing better. There, I've saved you your time and money. You are welcome.
