An “Electrifying” Tale Of A Boy and His Dog…. Arf! Arf! Arf!
With its cute, yet, decidedly creepy-looking characters, and all, I thought that Frankenweenie was a pretty darn good “Mad Scientist” story that’s sure to be a hit with audiences of all ages.
Containing some very nice touches of warped humor, grotesque horror and several arousing moments of pathos (cleverly injected into its weird, but oddly wonderful, little tale), Frankenweenie has proved, once again, that director Tim Burton still has the master’s touch when it comes to making stop-motion, animated films that seem to emerge from the very depths of the dark-side.
If nothing else, Frankenweenie certainly turned out to be a lovingly-charged homage to a variety of classic horror, monster, and Sci-Fi pictures from those glorious days of yesteryear.
All-in-all, Frankenweenie certainly had its share of flaws, but, just the same, I certainly hadn’t expected to enjoy this film as much as I did.
Appropriately filmed in b&w, thank goodness that it didn’t contain any musical numbers.
They’ve gotta learn sooner or later…
If anywhere there was a braver ending needed, it’s here. Kids could have learned that life is but fleeting, we all suffer heartbreak sooner or later, say goodbye to the ones we love… This is an important lesson indeed. But, no. In the interest of a few mums and dads having to tolerate some waterworks on the way home from the cinema, Burton decides to go for what is essentially a cop out. Rather cowardly, if you ask me.
The whole film has the feel of an old B movie (but is set in the present day) as it is shot entirely in black and white and contains more than one horror reference. Spookiness pervades the atmosphere, as Danny Elfman’s Gothic score meanders in the background like a funeral march. Poor Victor loses his dog, and his mourning and subsequent resurrection of his pet carries real emotion weight.
This doesn’t last though, as the plot stretches to Victor’s classmates experimenting on other deceased creatures, turning them into freaks of nature that invade the town. This is an arresting spectacle, but a betrayal of what transpired before… turning the movie from a personal tale about a boy and his half-dead canine, into an OTT monster movie. It feels like a different film, and not one that matched up to the poignant first half.
Not for one minute would I suggest I could tell Mr Burton how to do his job. But I think less action, and more storytelling would have improved the final reel no end… As well as a more courageous conclusion. Oh well, everyone’s a critic (Most don’t enunciate their thoughts as well as I do, though)… 😉 6/10
