      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Loud, incoherent, and dramatically listless, I, Frankenstein is a remarkably dull fantasy adventure that fails to generate much excitement or interest in its characters.

      Chris Stuckmann ChrisStuckmann.com The effects are poor, the dialogue is laughable, and despite Aaron Eckhart's valiant efforts, the whole thing feels like a cheesy TV movie. Rated: D- Apr 23, 2015 Full Review Evan Williams The Australian I, Frankenstein, with its monster reinvented as a superhero, is a fairly predictable action movie. Shelley would not have approved. Mar 21, 2014 Full Review Jake Wilson Sydney Morning Herald 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. Rated: 2/5 Mar 21, 2014 Full Review Keith Garlington Keith & the Movies Regardless of how much I might enjoy goofy, cheesy material especially in the horror genre, at some point you have to offer more. Rated: 2/5 Aug 22, 2022 Full Review Richard Crouse Richard Crouse There is some cool gothic Gargoyle imagery on display and a variety of posh English accents to class to the joint, but it seems only Nighy realizes that this would have played better as a campy comedy. Rated: 1/5 Feb 1, 2021 Full Review Sophie WIng One Room With A View Not the worst movie ever made, but far, far removed from the best. Rated: 1/5 Jun 8, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews

      Jeremy H If you use your imagination sit back and try to enjoy the movie you will enjoy this movie don't read the reviews or low stars just watch the movie and try and just use your imagination Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/07/24 Full Review Mark B This bad. Really bad. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/01/24 Full Review D M Even though the film felt like another Blade/Underworld remake, I enjoyed the gargoyle order addition. I wish the storyline moved faster through Adams creation & why he was being hunted by demons so there could be more action packed scenes. All in all, it wasn't a waste of time to see. I do hope for a future Frankenstein film that WOWS me! Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/29/24 Full Review Brenda S Action Monster movie, enjoyable, and not ment to be some highbtow epic. It is good for what it is and what it was meant to be. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/10/24 Full Review Oren B Such a low so-called "critics" ratings - that I HAD to watch! Excellent movie! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/02/24 Full Review Adam E Based on Kevin Grevioux's digital graphic novel, I, Frankenstein is a sci-fi fantasy film from 2014 about Frankenstein's Monster getting dragged into a war between gargoyles and demons. The film was critically panned and failed to make much of a profit at the box-office. Aaron Eckhart stars as Adam, Frankenstein's Monster, in a movie that, unsurprisingly, aimed for potential Underworld crossovers down the line. This is very much the same kind of movie with its modern-day action take on classic horror monsters, CGI creatures, comic-book style visuals and rock soundtrack. I, Frankenstein, being released over 10 years after the first Underworld and other similar movies (Van Helsing, LXG) were a big thing, unfortunately feels old hat as it, almost proudly, decides to bring nothing new to the table. The plot sees gargoyles, who were created by an archangel, rescue Frankenstein's Monster/Adam from a demon attack then try to hire his help in this war between good and evil. Adam grabs a couple of weapons, declines the offer and walks away in typical reluctant anti-hero fashion. Cut to a mere 200 years later and the war continues but now a demon prince called Naberius (Bill Nighy) is plotting to revive human corpses using Frankenstein's secret in order to possess them with an army of demons. It doesn't get much more ludicrous than this here plot, of course, and the writing is about as slight, clichéd and predictable as it gets. There's nothing tongue-in-cheek about this movie, however, as everyone from Aaron Eckhart to Jai Courtney and Bill Nighy takes their roles seriously, with barely any humor present in the entire film. That said, there is something enjoyably cozy about a straight-up B movie like this one, which is as earnest as possible and acts like it's the first of its kind. Its lack of self-awareness is arguably more entertaining than the action sequences themselves with actors saying the silliest lines with a straight face. One scene even makes sure to emphasize the Frankenstein Monster's six-pack, which is exactly what Mary Shelley had in mind, I'm sure. There's frankly not much else to say about I, Frankenstein: this is a CGI-heavy, quite ridiculous and not very good gothic action flick with enough amusingly dated tropes, bad dialog and straight-up nonsense to keep you entertained but if you're looking for a somewhat decent and recent enough Frankenstein movie, I'd opt for Victor Frankenstein instead. Every bit as goofy as it sounds. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 11/07/23 Full Review Read all reviews
