I, Frankenstein

Set in a dystopic present where vigilant gargoyles and ferocious demons rage in a battle for ultimate power, Victor Frankenstein’s creation Adam (Aaron Eckhart) finds himself caught in the middle as both sides race to discover the secret to his immortality. From the creators of the hit supernatural saga, UNDERWORLD, comes the action thriller I, FRANKENSTEIN, written for the screen and directed by Stuart Beattie based on the graphic novel “I, Frankenstein” by Kevin Grevioux, and brought to life by a cast that includes Aaron Eckhart, Bill Nighy, Yvonne Strahovski, Miranda Otto, Jai Courtney, Socratis Otto, Mahesh Jadu, Caitlin Stasey and Aden Young as Victor Frankenstein.

Scott’s Take

We touched upon this one on the podcast last night.  It is never a good sign when a studio doesn’t screen a film. In the case of I,Frankenstein, it isn’t the slightest bit surprising.  The movie looks absolutely terrible.  It resembles Legion with Paul Bettany and we all know how that one turned out.  It looks as though Lionsgate wants to try and cash in on first week ticket returns before all the negative word of mouth sends this sucker to the Walmart bargain bin.  I could be wrong but….

Steve’s Take

I don’t know any other way to say this – white hot garbage. Don’t be crazy and save your hard earned money please.

Next Week
