Frankenstein (2007)
Movie Review by The Gravedigger

Frankenstein (2007) This BBC interpretation of Mary Shelley's FRANKENSTEIN is one of the best Frankenstein movies I have ever seen, up there with FRANKENSTEIN: THE TRUE STORY and any of the Hammer Films.

Victoria (Helen McCrory) is a biologist obsessed with The Universal Xenograft Project, which is a multi-organ bank. These grown organs would be fit for human transplant. At the same time she's working on this she's also dealing with her mortally sick eight-year-old son, whose organs are failing him. Desperate to save him she injects some of his DNA into the organ bank--and it starts growing a sort of person. But her son dies and she decides to pull the plug on the project. However, her ex-husband (James Purefoy of ROME), has them continue the project.

The creature inside eventually breaks out of the metal container and escapes into the city, where it accidently kills a young girl. It ends up at Victoria's house, in her son's backyard fort. When she sees it she freaks out and rejects the monster. It's eventually captured and studied-- and seems to have some of the memories of her dead son, which makes dealing with it difficult for both her and her ex to deal with. In order to keep the creature under control it's fitted with electronic bolts in its neck which can paralyze its body if it becomes violent. The scenes with the gene company keeping the creature captive is difficult to watch, for as utterly ferocious the monster is it's also pitiful and sympathetic. In fact, the three major characters are this way as well. Victoria is somewhat of a bitch and her ex an asshole but there are scenes where you truly sympathize with them. The movie also has the most unique looking "Frankenstein Monster" to date.

The ending is perfect.

This gets my highest recommendation.
