Such a bad movie. a silly concept of frankenstein and demons etc. , far to much special effects which is obviously there to mask the empty storyline. There's no real story to speak of. you could of wrote it on a matchbox. bad ending bad everything. it never interested me i was bored all the way and not rewarded for my time with the ending. , I would like to give some positive comments but i just cant think of any. i really dont know how and why they make films like this. I'm no director or screenwriter but even just adding different elements and better dialogue and changing a few things would improve it. why make something that you surely must know is poor. very strange.

Frankenstein - no longer the monster he once was - finds himself caught between two warring supernatural factions that have been waging a centuries-long war with each other. the visual effect's in this movie was really Bad and the main villain played by Bill Nighy was okay but I didn't think he was evil enough, Aaron Eckhart was okay in his role of the monster (Frankenstein) the rest of the film is average watch.

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. Aaron Eckhart stalks through the film at various stages of cheesed off, Bill Nighy slums it as a demon prince by way of Grace Bros. and none of the other characters really get a chance to distract from the CGI cacophony that is going on around them. …

Edgy Frankenstein Falls Short

Chris Kavan - wrote on 05/11/2014

The recent trend in updating classic stories (be they children's fairy tales or classic novels) and turning them into action-oriented "edgy" films has been met with little success. I, Frankenstein, unfortunately, continues that trend. 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 race (as they care …
