Only in occasional, uncanny moments - when someone uses an iPhone, or gets off a tram - does this world appear to intersect in any way with our own.

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.
January 30, 2014
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.

This novel premise quickly gives way to lots of chaotic action, though there are numerous incidental pleasures throughout.
January 26, 2014
It's no fun. Everyone takes this way too seriously.

What the film doesn't have is a sense of humor.
June 8, 2019
Not the worst movie ever made, but far, far removed from the best.
March 7, 2019
I, Frankenstein's finale predictably leaves it open for a sequel, the thought of which would likely have the Baron and his creation spinning in their graves.
February 1, 2019
It's a tired piece of action/fantasy that could have easily slapped "Underworld 5" on the title card, and no one would have noticed.

Shockingly, talented performers such as Eckhart and the usually reliable character actor Nighy singed on the dotted line for this fetid fishbowl of a frightfest that seems as inconsequential as a pair of Frankenstein's high-water pants.

There's treating a ridiculous story seriously, and then there's believing that a ridiculous story is serious, and I, Frankenstein falls into the latter category.

Adam's search for the meaning of his life slows the pace,... By the time the final crusade takes place, the audience's interest has diminished almost completely.
October 12, 2018
Succumbing to the worst possible scenario for a film like this, I, Frankenstein is a boring and poorly written attempt at establishing the infamous creature as an action icon.
July 16, 2018
If Victor Frankenstein considers his creature an abomination, and he traditionally does, then everyone involved in I, Frankenstein should take a leaf out of his book.

So jump on the back of the nearest flying Gargoyle and float to your local movie theater - hopefully at midnight - to enjoy the most irresistible techno-goth, emo-monster extravaganza that's come out in quite a while.

Visually spectacular with a first-rate cast, I, Frankenstein is hampered by a predictable script.
November 17, 2017
The film is more of a generic action-fantasy based on a graphic novel, rather than the book by Mary Shelley, so don't expect it to be emotionally moving.
September 8, 2017
The monster might live, but unfortunately it gets lost within all the chaos surrounding him.
March 10, 2017
Stabbing along at a plodding 90 minutes, I, Frankenstein is toothless and dull, with no fun to be found, a PG-rated Saturday morning cartoon at best. Keep swinging, Eckhart.

Writer-director Stuart Beattie and his cast and crew tear into their bad idea with vigor.
