Surprisingly good adaptation of the 'bride of Frankenstein' story.

Dr. Frankenstein (a young Sting, handsome with flowing blond hair) creates a beautiful young woman, Eva, (Jennifer Beals) as a partner for his original male creation. But, once he sees how beautifully she turned out, he selfishly decides to keep her for himself. The 'monster' (played most touchingly and sensitively by Clancy Brown), who falls in love with Eva on sight, runs off. He meets Rinaldo who befriends him and helps him find his way.

A lovely relationship grows between Viktor, as Rinaldo has named the 'monster', and they find work in a circus. Their act becomes very popular and the owner hates paying the two what they are worth. The knife thrower, played most evilly by a young and beautiful Phil Daniels, hates them for their success and, after hearing the owner wish to be rid of them, arranges just that. Viktor, who has never thought he had a heart, finds his breaking now.

The Doctor has grown jealous and possessive of his creation, Eva, and she rebels. He decides to take her whether she likes it or not, but his plans are thwarted when, in the nick of time, Viktor interrupts them.

The film is beautifully realized, stylishly designed, intelligently written and executed. The characters are stunningly beautiful -- Sting, Jennifer Beals, Phil Daniels, and especially the extraordinary Cary Elwes (as a young Captain who also wants Eva). The message -- that the 'normal' people act in a far more 'monstrous' fashion -- may be a tad overdone (but that can't be helped, I suppose), but the romance of the couple that were 'made for each other', quite literally, is welcome and refreshing.

This film shouldn't work but it does...brilliantly! Sting is a bit bit wooden as usual but he doe deliver a couple of lines well especially the classic reply to the female creatures ire at being told what to do " You didn't make me " " As a matter of fact, I did".

Clancy Brown is a superb Frankenstein creature and the scenes with his friend David Rappaport are full of pathos and understanding.

The music by Maurice Jarre is excellent too.

Format: DVD
I was expecting an average to poor film but instead was pleasantly surprised at just how good The Bride is. The movie begins with the creation of The Bride and the original Monster leaving Baron Frankensteins home due to his belief that he has been rejected by both the Bride and Frankenstein. The majority of the film then follows two plots, that of Frankenstein and The Bride and The Monster and his new friend called Rinaldo. The Monster/Rinaldo story is more fun and interesting than that what transpires at Frankensteins home, but it all comes together at the end very effectivaly. The cast is very good with Clancy Brown playing an excellent Monster. You also get great parts for Alexis Sayle, Phil Daniels and Cary Elwes. David Rappaport as Rinaldo is outstanding and incredibaly likeable. Sting and Jennifer Beals don't really stand out but are good enough in their essential roles, both exuding a certain insanity. The film looks amazing, there's some great sets and some beautiful outdoor location filming.
The movie is a strange mix of the old Universal Boris Karloff horrors, a bit of Hammer Horror, but also an 80's Princess Bride, family entertainment feel. In fact if they edited out some of the nudity and a little bit of violence this film I think could have been marketedd as a family fantasy film with just a hint of horror, like a Labyrinth or Princess Bride.
If you're interested in the Frankenstein story and want to see another interpretation give this film a go.
The DVD's very good quality and comes with Director audio commentary.
