November 29, 2017
Visually spectacular with a first-rate cast, I, Frankenstein is hampered by a predictable script.
Full Review | Original Score: B-
November 16, 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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

The monster might live, but unfortunately it gets lost within all the chaos surrounding him.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

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.
April 14, 2016
Writer-director Stuart Beattie and his cast and crew tear into their bad idea with vigor.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
March 4, 2016
Whether in 2D or 3D, it does not have enough of a plot to intrigue or the character development to keep your attention off the clichés, derivative designs and that there is way too much CGI.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
April 23, 2015
The effects are poor, the dialogue is laughable, and despite Aaron Eckhart's valiant efforts, the whole thing feels like a cheesy TV movie.

Here's hoping there's no follow-up to the amazingly dull adventures of Frankenstein's Monster.
October 10, 2014
It takes less than four minutes to realise that this Underworld-style, graphic novel adaptation won't keep anyone in the audience sitting bolt upright for long.

Humanity's fate hangs in the balance, but it's hard to work up much excitement for the routine CGI-boosted battles between good and evil forces, or for the less than sparky rapport between Eckhart's Monster and Strahovski's lissome blonde scientist.
June 3, 2014
I, Frankenstein leaves itself open to be franchised, but the chances of that happening are equal to Eckhart putting this film at the top of his resume.

Even the title card is garish

Even the most avid action junkies would have a hard time not rolling their eyes at the blandness of it all.

If a worse studio film comes out this year, we're in deep trouble, people. This film is so bad it will hurt your brain. And even if you leave your brain at home, your spinal column will still object...[a] godawful, lame-brained mess of a movie.

March 21, 2014
I, Frankenstein, with its monster reinvented as a superhero, is a fairly predictable action movie. Shelley would not have approved.
March 21, 2014
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.

Mary Shelley's words come to mind: "Oh, why did you create me!"

It is disappointing and you look at all the talent that's gone into it. I was really underwhelmed by Strahovski's performance, I must say.

The numerous battles are confusingly handled and the actors aren't given many opportunities given the dialogue they're forced to speak.

Devoid of any appeal that isn't concentrated around star Aaron Eckhart's impeccably-sculpted muscles, this effects-laden lump of cinematic coal is as nonsensical and ill-conceived as it is boring.
