An interesting spin-off from a creature film that became downhill until the end. It started as an interesting take on Frankenstein with powerful performances from MacAvoy & Radcliffe and some really great production design of old and dark London. The strength of this film lies on the characterization of its talented cast. The major failure is the film itself. It lacks substance and darkness from a creature that has been feared by many. It lost its momentum half-way through. The climax could have been longer. Well, at least, this is Radcliffe’s shining moment. Still enjoyed it in the end. 3.5/5 stars.
