    ★★★★½

    Wasn't expecting to love this but it's such a fun film full of memorable set-pieces, and it's all in a self contained, tightly written film with no loose ends! Wow!

    Some of the shaky cam and the dreary action got a bit too much (especially during that carriage full of leather daddies) but the structure of the film (and the train) meant there was always something different and surprising round the corner

    ★½

    I watched this purely because it was on Film4 at midnight and my sleeping patterns have been totally fucked by the lockdown

    It sucks

    Why would you make a Frankenstein film but take out everything interesting about the Frankenstein story?

    However that monkey scene was pretty cool and imo looked better than the monkeys in the dawn of the planet of the monkeys which I caught a glimpse of in last night's insomniac channel hopping
