I, Frankenstein

Aaron Eckhart plays Frankenstein's monster, drawn into a conflict between heaven and hell when demonic forces seek his immortality. Based on the Darkstorm graphic novel depicting what happened after the events of Mary Shelley's 1818 novel. From the director of Tomorrow, When the War Began.

As if Frankenstein's monster didn't have it tough enough, moments after burying his creator in the early 18th century he is attacked by demons and only saved by the intervention of winged rescuers. What he then discovers is a war that has been raging for millenia between demons and the transforming gargoyles of heaven, the latter not only proving to be his saviour but giving him his freedom and a name - Adam.

In the present day, Adam pursues the demons he knows are seeking him and his immortality, but gets caught between the two spiritual forces once more when the demons intensify their efforts to find him. Led by Prince Naberius (Bill Nighy) the forces of darkness have almost discovered the key to reanimating the dead and Frankenstein's creation may provide the missing piece to a puzzle that will result in mankind's damnation.

Ay-yi-yi, Frankenstein. Sure, his monster has always been a stitched together assemblage of body parts, but despite never actually having a soul in the first place, Frankenstein’s creation has never been quite as soulless as this. That’s not just the monster’s fault, or that of Aaron Eckhart who plays him, the buck stopping with everyone involved in this whole unfortunate exercise.

Enjoyed

This was not what I expected. I found this quite weird with main actor as last time I saw him he was "Two Face in Batman" However.... I REALLY ENJOYED this movie. Love Vampire - Werewolf etc movies. its was cool how the Guardians were like Gargoyles. Imagination took place in making this movie. Enjoyed.

Thirty-Five Minutes Was Enough

My opinion of this movie summed in one sentence: I got thirty-five minutes into I, Frankenstein – directed by Stuart Beattie - and stopped watching. For that reason, I’ll keep this short. Writing: Cheesy, poorly constructed and mind-rotting to listen to. Acting: Boring, dull, and reminiscent of the stony gargoyles being portrayed. Plot: Thirty-five...

I prefer the eye graphics of 'Frankenstein, Unbound' 1990, yet this flick is a mixmatch of 'Van Helsing'2004 and 'Legion'2010 and although it has the same director, not as dark as 'Underworld'2003. If you liked the above films, then you'll enjoy this badboy. Enjoyable for a rainy day, but then again, I say that alot.

The idea was there... :/

Good grief, if it weren't for the spectacle that was the deaths of gargoyles and demons this film would have been flatter than britney spears. The concept of the film and its story did have some potential, but there was simply no depth to it. it was simple and eye catching but ultimately didn't have a climax. Gods own creations were thicker than the...

He's alive! But you might wish he wasn't after seeing this knuckle-headed fantasy.

The blinkered screenplay and indifferent performances fail to lift the eschatology and self-searching off the page.

One more run around that boringly realised, CGI-reliant, blue-grey netherverse that takes enduring fantasy creations as the basis for barely functioning multiplex-filler.

While it’s nothing new and lacks individualistic touches, it’s still solid trashy fun as an overwrought superhero origin story.

Employs a strictly humorless, gothic approach to the material that makes one long for the satirical touches of James Whale, let alone Mel Brooks.

Back to the drawing board for the mad scientists who cobbled this together. Five parts bad to one part camp nonsense.
