This is bye far, the best remake of Frankenstein ever. This is better than the Frankenstein sequel's to, well MOST of the Frankenstein sequel's at lest. Comes very close to the perfect book written by Mary Shelley. Some people said this was bad because there was to much drama. Will people stop being Nerd's!

"Mary Shelley's Frankenstein" is an incredibly melodramatic adaptation of the book that takes huge liberties with the plot, but I still find it thoroughly entertaining. The movie is perfectly cast, and I think that the embellishments that Kenneth Branagh takes with the story only make the film more enjoyable. Even though I doubt that Dr. Frankenstein ran around without a shirt on as much as Branagh does in the film, most women will probably find it quite enjoyable. Robert DeNiro is amaing in his role of "the creature," and Helena Bonham Carter gives a great performance as Elizabeth. If you're the type of person who detests it when filmmakers stray too far from the text of the book they're adapting, then this film probably isn't for you. If you're a bit more open-minded and are just looking for an entertaining movie to watch, this is a perfect film to add to your collection.

I had seen this movie when it was released but only remembered bits and pieces. Kenneth Branagh and Robert De Niro are wonderful as the mad scientist and the creature he brings to life. Very powerful and emotional version of the famous classic.

I get a nack for literary movies (as I said many, many times); even from the classic horror novels, with literature's famous monsters : Count Dracula, Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde, The Phantom of The Opera, The Headless Horseman, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, and...The Frankenstien Monster. The original Frankenstein novel was written by a women named Mary Shelly in 1818 (she knows how to scare people with her masterpiece), and many versions had been made for the silver screen; but to me, this version with actor/director Kenneth Branagh (Hamlet in 1996) is the best and the scariest version ever!

Kenneth Branagh plays Victor Frankenstein, a scientist who is obsessed with conquering death, after his "Mommy Dearst" died due to complications giving birth to his little brother William (I mean HEL-LO! I'm SOR-RY you can't get ever over losing your mom, on the account of your little brother,but it dosen't mean you go all CRA-ZY! I was surprise Vic didn't blame Willy for their mother's death). In medical school, Victor makes friends with a fellow student, Henry Clerval, clashes with the hidebound Professor Krempe (Robert Hardy), and finds himself fascinated by the secretive Professor Waldman who, he learns, once fell foul of the authorities for conducting illegal experiments. Setting up a laboratory in a hired attic, Victor sets about achieving the ultimate aim of his research: cheating death'. After another public argument with Krempe, Victor is almost kidnapped by Waldman, who shows the student his rooms ' and his secret laboratory. Waldman explains to Victor the Chinese practice of acupuncture, and how it might affect the electrical energy of the body. Victor expounds his own theories on the overcoming of death.

The scene with the crowd was gathered during the lynching,
did'nt the caption say Ingolstadt and is'nt Ingolstadt in
Germany?
I am wondering why De Niro was talking like an englishman
and the crowd sounded like english too?
Maybe I missing something; should'nt the people so german?
I remember like thirty years ago about you should be true
to your heritage.

As most people have noted "Mary Shelleys Frankenstein" did stray far from the book. That does not, however, disclude the brilliance of imagry throughout the film. As a child I grew up believing that Frankenstein was some monster with bolts in his neck created by a mad scientist and a hunch back. It wasn't until jr. yr in British Literature that I was cleansed of these misconceptions. And yes, while it does tend to stray from its originial intent - how much pain staking attention to detail could any viewer handle? The movie is long as it is and if the main plot of the story is there why such a descrepency? Infact I think all lovers of Mary Shelleys Frankenstein should welcome the only real close depiction of such a timeless classic. Not to mention Robert De Niro's performance was amazing and utterly captivating.

ok, im a student in high school, and i can tell the differences in the book and the movie easliy. the movie is nothing like the book, in the first 5 mintutes there are almost 10 thing different from the book, 1. it looks like the monster is chasing victor, 2. the monster doesn't attack the dogs, 3. they don't see the monster off in the distance sledding away 4. no letters to robert walton's sister, 5. Robert walton seems power hungry, 6. the threat of mutiny doesn't happen until the end of the book,
7. victor never brings elizabeth back to life
8. the monster does not kill victors dad
9. the monster all together, hes 8 foot 3, long black hair, yellow skin, black lips, hes not supposed to be white, w/ pink lips and bald, if Mary Shelley was here today i don't think she'd be proud of this movie, its nothing like her book
i have not completly seen all of this movie, but i don't tihnk it should be called Mary Shelley's version, b/c of the obvious differences in which i stated above.
