I, Frankenstein

Critics Consensus

Loud, incoherent, and dramatically listless, I, Frankenstein is a remarkably dull fantasy adventure that fails to generate much excitement or interest in its characters.

  • Aaron Eckhart plays the thoroughly modern monster, caught up in a battle between good and evil that threatens all mankind. Somehow he finds time for romance.

  • 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.
