"a clinical new-Frankenstein tale on the surface, but the moving
central romance provides the film’s beating heart."
"more satisfying in hindsight"
"intelligent and empathetic, asking questions of the audience, as opposed
to passing judgement on its characters"
"kind of feels like the perfect remake…"
"drops the bomb with an over-zealous barrage of samey jump scares"
"a simple, but effective, contained thriller with very strong performances"
"displays a real knack for both the horrifying humour and the base brutality, and
somehow manages to wrestle the two into a cohesive, if wild, whole"
"has enough sex, guns, drugs, kung fu, funk and soul for a dozen Blaxploitation
parodies, but the laughs aren’t consistent enough"
