"I, Frankenstein by Yojimbo

Frankenstein's experiment in reviving the dead survives to the modern day and becomes caught up in a war between vampiric demons and angelic gargoyles. I think it would be fair to say that you will be able to tell whether you could enjoy this film based entirely upon your ability to swallow such an utterly absurd and idiotic plot! I, Frankenstein is very much in the Underworld/Van Helsing vein of prettified monsters bashing the bejesus out of each other using a variety of pointy objects in the middle of a computer generated firework display.

Coming off as a poor-man's Underworld (with demons and angelic gargoyles in place of vampires and werewolves) - it strikes up neither a good narrative nor a particularly well-rounded character study.

The classic Frankenstein tale is given a rushed opening about the classic story we all know - and then goes in to a crash course on the whole demons vs. gargoyles battle and why our monster man is so important - to both sides. But, of course, "Adam" as he is dubbed, goes off on his own to travel the world - alone - not caring for the human...
