Yet another movie I would never have heard of if I wasn’t online. Thank you internet. With Franklyn‘s cast, I was kinda surprised this movie received no attention. Eva Green, Ryan Phillippe, and Sam Riley (of Control fame). Franklyn is the only movie I’ve seen to pull off a steampunk theme. The movie has a sort of split narrative, where the story happens in two places at once.

Ok, the first time I watched this I was saying WTF the whole way through, and you might too. Get all the way through and you’ll figure it out. If not watch it again. I have watched it twice now, and everything is solid. It’s a decent movie, I think imdb’s rating of a 6.2 might be appropriate for this. The acting was good, of course Sam Riley in anything will be good. And by god the steampunk! A movie finally pulls it off!!!!! I hope to see more of this in some movies. Are there any other steampunk themed movies out there?

If you come across this movie, give it a go. The split narrative is pretty awesome too. I don’t think you will be disappointed. It is good.

    Huh, sorry but a 6.2 rating on imdb is neither good nor appropriate for this movie. You contradict yourself as you visibly enjoyed it (“I don’t think you will be disappointed. It is good.” etc) and at the same time acknowledge with its rating (btw you should not have cared about it in your review, exposed that way it’s perfectly pointless) : “It’s a decent movie, I think imdb’s rating of a 6.2 might be appropriate for this”
