TV update of Mary Shelley's classic novel starring Donald Sutherland and William Hurt. The crew of a weather-beaten ship stranded in the icy North Sea rescue a man close to death: Victor Frankenstein (Alec Newman). He recounts his own story of a young scientist possessed of an obsessive thirst for knowledge, who has challenged the very foundations of nature by creating a sentient creature pieced together with body parts stolen from a morgue...

This production is simply amazing, lavishly dressed sets and costumes and splendid acting from the gorgeous Alec Newman and Luke Goss. The monster in this mini-series (played by Goss) is not hideous or horrible to look at, he simply is a man created by man, rejected by his creator, Luke is so good at playing him and Alec as the creator is superb at plying the mad scientist rejecting his creation. The music and direction of the production is fabulous, and the locations in Slovakia are beautiful. Buy this as a treat to yourself, theres nothing decent on telly these days, and this will entertain you for hours.

i've always liked the frankenstein story, this rendition is possibly the best film version ever. i came accross the film by accident, i was channel hopping and saw the hallmark channel was showing their version.I missed the first half hour, i was so impressed by the rest of what i saw, i brought the dvd. luke goss played his part perfect. the whole film was tempered just right. compare it with the Kenneth Branagh, Robert De Niro version which is a bit over produced. if you like the story, i think you will like this version.

This was an unexpected delight. The makers have translated Mary Shelley's original story faithfully to the screen in a highly watchable version that uses its actors and locations to good effect. It is played out against breathtaking scenery, so that in spite of its dark subject matter it is very easy on the eye. The film is well paced, yet manages a thoughtful nod to the themes of the book.

It is presented in two parts, coming in at just under three hours in total. There is also a brief "making of" featurette and a trailer.

Review of this version's DVD quality:

I must say I am very disappointed with the UK 10th anniversary re-release of Frankenstein starring Luke Goss. The picture quality is terrible. It's too dark, far too dark. As a long time fan of this version of Frankenstein this is the worst video picture quality I've ever seen for it. I know the American version by heart and have the Dutch DVD and Asian DVD, and Italian DVD and Spanish Blue Ray so I know how much better the picture quality used to be. If you wish to watch the 2004 Hallmark version of Frankenstein starring Luke Goss stick to the older DVDs. This one has surprisingly awful picture quality. It's like someone left the contrast too high. There are scenes that are very hard to see that used to be very easy to see.

Well, disc 2 has slightly better picture quality. I wonder if there's a defect with the first disc. It's like the contrast was too high. I'd seen that on old VHS tapes but never DVD. Disc 1 is nearly unwatchable. I think I'll stick with my American DVD.

I contacted Kaleidoscope home entertainment about this issue and even sent them screen grabs.

I hope they do not intend to leave it as is under the assumption that those who have never watched the American version would not notice the difference. There are scenes so dark all I can see are the glisten of teeth. And their second disc (quality wise) looks nothing like this overly-dark part 1 disc.

I have poor eye sight and I can tell there's something very wrong without even referencing the original American DVD. This isn't right. I would not have been able to follow the movie without the original American DVD to serve as reference.

having read the book many moons ago with a view to adapting it for the stage, and then recently having seen the Cumberbatch Herr Frankenstein v his creation from the National Theatre, I was pleasantly relieved to see on these two videos a version mainly true to the book.
It is simplified and romanticised - Mary Shelley may have been romantic about Shelley but not about her creations - but covers all her interests and arguments, as well as giving life to characters she only partially sketched in the book. What's also good is that it is set in the right period - very early in the 1800s - and thus brings home the amazing imaginative power of a young woman with no scientific education [Though she had plainly read Erasmus Darwin's work, and quotes him in her first paragraph.]
It has scenes of great beauty and seriousness, well acted by every actor - especially William Hurt.
The valley of Chamounix was understandably replaced by n economical ruin of a Slovakian castle, but it was romantic and large scale in a way true to the gothic style of the writing.
Like the book it was a little over-long, and occasionally the script did not achieve what it set out to achieve - eg in the creature's learning experiences.
Very enjoyable at many levels. Four stars because the image on screen is often very dark, and because the photography needed to be be more varied - it was too often all at eye-level.
Buy it and see. Especially if you want an easy access to the book
