Good movie, great special effects.

I am thinking it was the lines in the movie didn't go well with the story line or something like that.

I get why people could hate this movie, but then again, those type of people should not be watching this movie in the first place. I really wanted to see this movie based on the previews and while I'll admit that I wasn't blown away, I did have a good time. I found Aaron Eckhart to be a convincing Frankenstein and I enjoyed his performance. I also loved the gargoyle aspect. When I hear "gargoyle" I don't generally think "good". I actually thought they were the enemy from the previews. I personally loved the gargoyle/demon conflict and thought the CGI was good. This is definitely a popcorn flick, but with some nice action sequences it's worth watching all the same. Shut your brain off and enjoy the ride.

When I first saw the trailer for this film, my heart raced and a wicked smile crossed my face. The fight scenes and the Gothic imagery really amped me up for some reason. Maybe it’s because I love unique takes on existing mythologies. But regardless of why, I knew I had to see this film! And thankfully, the fine folks at Lionsgate saw fit to grant my request. I, FRANKENSTEIN is an adrenaline-charged reimagining of Mary Shelley’s classic horror story and one heck of a ride!

I didn’t realize this film was based on a graphic novel until after I watched it. But what makes this piece of information impressive is that Kevin Grevioux, who portrays Dekar in the film AND who wrote the screenplay, actually wrote the graphic novel as well! This guy is a major powerhouse!! I loved the UNDERWORLD series, which he also wrote and starred in, so this is just one more feather in his cap.

I, FRANKENSTEIN is shot well and looks amazing onscreen. Do yourself a favor and watch this in 3D; you will not be disappointed. The lighting and imagery make the movie burst from the screen in 3D, and the result is a visual feast for the eyes. The look of the movie is half of what makes it so good.

But the story is the other half. I’ve said before that I love unique twists on existing tales, and this is definitely one of those to love. Grevioux weaves several new elements into the Frankenstein mythos and gives us so much more to love. I particularly like the Gargoyles and how he makes them ‘guardians’ commissioned by the Archangel Gabriel. This is a wildly fascinating concept and shows the massive depths of the man’s imagination.

There are many folks out there that will not enjoy I, FRANKENSTEIN, simply because it is way outside the normal parameters of entertainment.

Van Helsing and Underworld had a baby and they named it I Frankenstein!
If you like supernatural action movies like: Van Helsing, Priest, Underworld etc… Then you'll enjoy seeing this movie at least once. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 was because it seemed like I'd seen the same story and sequences in other movies, but I thought it was still a fun movie.

If you are going into this movie expecting anything but a fun film that borrows from a lot of other movies in its genre but gives a fresh twist with some great acting, you are not the right person to see this movie. Maybe you should go see Gravity and fall asleep instead! This movie was spectacular and anyone who enjoys sci fi and action would appreciate this film.

This isnt going to win any awards, but when you are looking for a popcorn flick with a ton of action and sci fi you wont be disappointed!

I, Frankenstein bears more than a little obvious resemblance to the Underworld series, including at least two actors returning from that series to play very similar characters. Although Aaron Eckhart isn't as adorable in tight leather as Kate Beckinsale, in my humble opinion.

But all fans of the Underworld films, or at least fans of the first movie in the series, should definitely enjoy this. I, Frankenstein takes the premise of the Mary Shelley book then wildly develops into its own mythos to include Frankenstein's monster helping warriors from heaven (in the form of gargoyles) hunting down demons. It sounds strange at first, and admittedly doesn't get less strange when it's revealed what in the world Frankenstein's monster has to do with any of this, but it's at least buyable for what this movie is trying to accomplish.

Also like Underworld, the movie features tons of great action scenes and takes itself way too seriously for the type of film it is, but I think I prefer it that way compared to something like Van Helsing, where there were far too many cheesy one-liners for its own good. Moreover, Bill Nighy plays the villain in this, and he's gloriously over the top in his wickedness, and it's awesome.

The look of I, Frankenstein is the best part of the movie. The settings are very gothic and give off a great atmosphere. The CGI looks cartoony in spots, but mostly looks great. The gargoyles look amazing, but the demons...are a little goofy. At least two of the female actresses are easy on the eyes in this movie and Aaron Eckhart and Jai Courtney will give the ladies something to gawk at too. So on that note, I, Frankenstein is a good...date movie?

Well, the movie's certainly not for everyone and I definitely wouldn't recommend it to anyone looking for high class or a faithful version of the classic novel, but for check-your-brain-at-the-door action-horror, there's far worse out there.
