I, Frankenstein Reviews

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.

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.

This novel premise quickly gives way to lots of chaotic action, though there are numerous incidental pleasures throughout.

It's no fun. Everyone takes this way too seriously.

What the film doesn't have is a sense of humor.

The special effects are pretty good and the fight scenes are adequate. But the film loses steam in the fourth act ...

Stitches up Aaron Eckhart's chiseled face like a baseball cover, sticks him in a hoodie, and promptly crashes, thanks to a complete inability to resist awful, overdone dialogue and faux-lofty exposition.

If the film is made with the understanding that campiness needs to be straight-faced to be funny, then are its "unintentional" laughs really that unintentional?
January 24, 2014
There are some clean, comic-book compositions and neat architectural interlacing, but the blinkered screenplay and indifferent performances fail to lift the eschatology and self-searching off the page.
January 24, 2014
Eckhart plays Frankenstein's monster in a monotonous, teeth-gritting mode, as if someone had one gun on him and another on his family.
January 24, 2014
Yvonne Strahovski makes for one of the least believable big screen scientists since Denise Richards' infamous turn as Dr. Christmas Jones.
January 24, 2014
Incoherent, ugly and lacking in any kind of flash or dazzle.

Mainly notable for the fact that its titular character, as played by Aaron Eckhart, is really, really ripped. If People magazine had existed in the 19th century, he surely would have been feted as the sexiest undead man alive.

It doesn't come close to working, but it's sweet that they tried.
January 24, 2014
A grievously ill-advised motion picture on every level ...
January 24, 2014
The real man-made monster in I, Frankenstein is the film itself, a ridiculous good-versus-evil story enrobed in a pastiche of religious symbolism and stodgy mythology and set in a world created in a computer special effects lab.

Long on talk and incoherent action, devoid of humor, this listless supernatural actioner surely has Mary Shelley turning in her grave.
