Robert De Niro (Actor), Kenneth Branagh (Actor, Director) Rated: Suitable for 15 years and over Format: VHS Tape Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein : good value for a film that is very gothic!

Exceptional services and vendor a++ dvd plays perfectly.

Excellent performances make this dvd thoroughly gripping. Superb for gcse revision. My grandson observed this edition superior than that revealed at faculty.

Sent on time, frankenstein kenneth brangh’s cool in it so is deniro 😀👍.

Wonderful output and delivered horror motion picture.

Does what it says on the box. Branagh appeared altogether too usual for this kind of a role.

Certainly great movie really like the supernatural things would endorse this dvd and vendor to all my buddies and loved ones who adore these types of movies.

Excellent movie could of been superior.

Quite a few complained about branagh’s film being about the prime- but it beautifully captures the gothic ,over the prime character of the novel- so it is really well really worth a check out.

This complete gothic horror is so much superior than any film or television adaptation i’ve witnessed. It is an complete masterpiece. A splendid tale that had a profound outcome on me. Mary shelly was a incredibly clever and deep considering person in truth.

This dvd arrived nicely packed and delivered on time. But this is these a traditional movie, and robert de niro performs the monster and what an superb proformance.

Good product and arrived promptly.

Outstanding high-quality, and shipping and delivery. Great film, my so requires it for his gcses.

My only qualm with this, is that following they uncover the lil child that was killed by the monster. The rain is coming down major, they hurry to deal with his corpse in a blanket. And for a split second you see the child’s hand pull the blanket about himself. Helen l b carter – ideal and gorgeous as normally.

Excellent, dim, remarkable film.

Good variation to clearly show learners studying the gothic style but not the most effective if learning the textual content.

Anything that helps make educating this awful e book to year 9 any a lot easier has my vote. Shame that some of the mother and father refused permission for them to check out it as it truly is a actually superior adaptation.

An fantastic print of the movie, and a excellent adaptation if a small strange in areas. Did that dancing scene seriously require to be retained in?.

The film adaption is considerably diffirent than the novel. On the other hand it focuses on the primary themes, immortality, abondance and social accountability. A excellent film that i would advise to absolutely everyone who enjoys the horror genre.

Superior performances, despite the fact that some of the dialogue is a bit pompous. Perfectly made and really absorbing all spherical.

I liked the movie and to start with noticed it in 1994 when it was realeased i thought it wasgood then and looking at it on blue ray was even superior. Fantastic movie and blu raytransfer.

    An excellent print of the film, and a great adaptation if a little weird in places. Did that dancing scene really need to be kept in?.

    Kenneth branagh directs and stars as victor frankenstein who after losing his mother to childbirth is determined as a scientist not to lose anyone else close to him. Sent away to school he disagrees with their philosophy and uses two dead subjects to bring life to the undead. Movie follows the well trodden story fairly well. For example acting is good as is the costumes and the period piece is pretty spot on. Helena bonham-carter is perfect for her role as branagh’s lover and robert de niro plays a mean monster, his english accent is worth watching for alone. The first half of the movie is very enjoyable if predictable. But on the hour mark the movie realises that it needs to fit in so much more in its remaining hour that the plot is fast forwarded to such a degree its as if we are watching a trailer for the movie. Alledgey made through troubled times, with producer francis ford coppola denouncng the movie after a few arguments on set with branagh. It’s a great stab at the frankenstein story and it’s nice to see some sweet references to past frankenstein movies.

      1. It is hard to pin down exactly what is missing in this movie. The story is of course excellent (and the film stays true to the book), acting is great (maybe with the exception of brannagh himself), costumes are wonderfull, but somehow, from the very first scene something is slightly off. Somehow the scenes seem a bit forced, and the editing could definately have been better. Still it is the best version of frankenstein i have seen, and is well worth watching.

    1. This was much better than i expected. A kenneth brannagh masterpiece. It is rivetting throughout, both horrific and sensitive. Quite heart rending by the end. Superb acting and production.

    Critically panned at the time, this grand slice of wild gothic melodrama now holds it’s own as a (flawed) masterpiece. Every aspect is superbly overblown – wild, sweeping, gorgeous photography, bold sets, a pounding classical score and expert performances from deniro, branagh, bonham carter and a superb supporting cast including celia imrie, richard briers, john cleese and ian holme. A classic tale beautifully told, rich with emotion and pathos amid the expected horrors. Nice (but not exceptional) blu ray transfer and for this edition, a superb and very collectible steelbook design.
