MOVIE REVIEW - I, Frankenstein

Holy cow, what was anyone anywhere near Hollywood thinking when this idea came up in some board meeting?   I, Frankenstein is simply ghastly.

The character of course is from classic literature, and it has been updated time and time again over the years in cinema so this is nothing new for this story.  But now a graphic novel emerged and this is based on that, with obviously a goal of becoming a franchise of a few flicks.  Gosh, lets hope not.

Frankenstein (Aaron Eckart) is now a sort of regular looking guy, who was sewn together with the body parts of 8 other people by the insane, but genius, Dr. Victor Frankenstein 200 years ago. Frankenstein has no soul and has immense strength.  He is sought after by two rival supernatural forces here on earth, The Demons (evil) and the Gargoyles (good).  They Gargoyles want to protect him, and the Demons are hunting him.  He, and the manual kept by the crazy doctor hold the key to creating life here on earth by humans and humans alone. The call it "animating" life. So the battle is on.

CLICK HERE - For all of my reviews!

Guess what? Here is yet another good vs. evil, mid evil sorcery, dark, video game looking movie.   Goodness, has this gone on a long time. There seems to be no end in sight for this kind of flick, and we can only hope that they begin to fade, because frankly it's getting a bit old.  This really looks like a video game in every single frame.  There have seldom been genres of movie making that have held on as long as this kind of stuff.  Some of it quite good, some not so much.  I think it's the video game look to it. Target audience feels like they are in the movie I guess.  This was also in 3-D, and regular, and the up charge is not worth it. This is stinks no matter what the D is.

 

 

Eckart is terribly miscast in the horribly written piece of trash.  Somehow they got the wonderful Bill Nighy to sign on as a main character too.  And the supporting cast is amazingly average in a movie that is so below average it's borderline pitiful.  The effects are old, tired, and overdone. Our actors are given a ridiculous script that starts off bad, and worsens into cliche' more and more as the flick trudges on.  Watching this was like walking in chest deep sludge, it just got tougher and tougher to watch.  There just isn't much more to say.

I, Frankenstein.  Aye, yai, yai  simply horrible.
