Review: 6/10

Igor is a lie........ bolts and lighting is a lie... being green is a lie.... being slow and innocent is a lie.... It would seem, that other then the name of Frankenstein and that he makes a monster. Everything else is a lie.... How Hollywood can take something so deep and enlightening to the mind and turn it in to... cheap entertainment it really is sad... Well I have read Frankenstein by Mary Shelley. It is not my favorite book. I do not care to have so much heart ache in life. Still, it is a good book and much better then any movie I know with the title.
