Though we have yet to receive an official trailer or poster for Franklyn just yet, the film is already getting reviewed over in the UK.

Frankly Reviewed


When I was told that Franklyn was a bit like V for Vendetta I couldn't help but be excited; I love V for Vendetta! What we're now being told is that the film is like a combination of Blade Runner and V for Vendetta and, though it tries for cult status, the film misses the mark.

Franklyn still has its perks, however.

A clever idea that could have worked as a novella, the urban-fantasy-cum-sci-fier "Franklyn" doesn't cut it by the bigscreen rulebook. Shuttling between present-day London and a totalitarian, retro-futuristic city, this first feature by Brit writer-director Gerald McMorrow leaves viewers dangling for so long that most will have checked out emotionally before the big revelation an hour in. Visually striking head-scratcher -- somewhere between "Blade Runner" and "V for Vendetta" in its noirish bits -- looks to have more of a future as an ambitious but failed cult item than as a contempo earner.



Check out the entire review on Franklyn over at Variety.

Franklyn does not have a domestic release date.
