I, FRANKENSTEIN (2014 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.0|5.0 Starsììì

I, Frankenstein becomes one more of the over fifty Hollywood ‘spins’ on the Frankenstein story told and retold since 1910. It becomes unclear, at some point, why Hollywood is so taken with this concept. Does a bad to fair story really deserve this much attention? While the film has an imaginative script liberally sprinkled with gargoyles, demons, and a very possessed human, nothing ‘takes off’ here. Aaron Eckhart is great on looks, but even sensible actor Bill Nighy can’t pull him out of the acting dog house.

Storyline

Frankenstein, abandoned by his creator, takes revenge and then finds himself relentlessly pursued by demons. Gargoyles provide him refuge and the show is on as spiritual forces scheme to gather the knowledge to create.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Director Stuart Beattie for his directing efforts. Thank you to Executive Producers Matt Berenson, Kevin Grevioux, David Kern, Troy Lum, James McQuaide, Eric Reid, Tom Rosenberg, Jim Tauber, Bruce Toll for making the film possible.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

No. It bombs on the screen.
