I.Marmite,youre either gonna love or hate this,well,i cant make my mind up,it virtually takes up from the Robert de Niros Frankenstein,and comes 200 yrs into the future.Hes wanted for his secret to eternal life by like vampire creatures and is looked after by gargoyles.There are some cracking martial art like fights,the vampire like creature are not called vampires but can only be killed by silver and Frankenstein,now called"Adam"has a pair of lung chucks and gives them what for.all done in "Underworld and Van Helsing"type of movie,a pleasing waste of time as watches go.4 stars for special effects,but,Aaron Eckhart in my opinion miscast as the monster.

To be honest I bought this because I couldn't find anything else remotely interesting that grabbed me. I suppose it's the summer lull or something. We watched this with mixed expectations and it turned out to be a pleasant enough evening's entertainment, but nothing special. Aaron Eckhart did the best he could.

Format: DVD
The film starts out smartly in 1795 with first person narration by the Frankenstein monster himself. After a run in with some demons, Frankenstein opts to head up north and film "Frankenstein Theory." The demons that want him are lead by Naberius (Bill Nighy). It seems Naberius' boss is Satan himself, and I don't mean the hockey player. The reason why they want Frankenstein is unclear, but later reveals itself...and how.

Since the powers of evil want Mr. F. Stein, so do the powers of good which are gargoyles. They are lead by Leonore (Miranda Otto) who now has elven ears, but too late; Viggo Mortensen isn't in this film. They want Frankenstein who she now names Adam (Aaron Eckhart) because that sounded significant to the script writers who haven't had a brilliant idea yet.

The film moves to the current age (pun intended) where Mr. Wessox (Bill Nighy again- wink wink nudge nudge) leads a group of re-animaters (Yvonne Strahovski).

The special effects were decent. When demons die they burst into flames like flash powder and nothing around them burns, sort of like CG fire. Indeed, the fighting was the best part of the film because when someone had to read a line, the film died. (pun almost intended). The dialog was simply horrible and the cardboard characters had no sense of humor. The slow scenes were tough to sit through, tempting the average person to go to the theater restroom and enter a different cinema.

The kids may like it.

Parental Guide: No f-bombs, sex, or nudity.

I cannot believe it’s not butter... I robot, and there in ends the good use of the letter I.

Ignoring the storyline for a moment some fundamental flaws about this film that bugged me were:

1) Demon masks... did they run out of budget and buy a batch off eBay from a Halloween specialist? Really poor quality taking away any intended dark element from the “bad guys”.
2) Frankensteins monster Adam was just too well constructed in human form, call me a purest but he simply doesn’t look like he was made from 8 different corpses! The ideal person to play such a role in my opinion would have been Ron Perlman as his physique is better suited and with some decent make up could have looked put together and monster like, not to mention he would have looked stronger.

The storyline... personally I quite liked the concept of using gargoyles and their transformation was decent but sadly that is where the praise from me ends. It had elements that could have seen a respectable fantasy action film allowing for sequels potentially introducing other mythical creatures, but in my opinion it went to “Buffy” like very quickly with no real tension or sinister atmospheric settings one would expect with Frankenstein.

If you like Buffy and other American programs like Supernatural you might get a kick out of this, but sadly I was hoping for a lot more so it let me down.

This is a remarkably incompetent film. For any film to be successful it must establish a plot and basic reason to care about anything. As near as I can tell this film didn't even try.

The film starts with a summary of the Frankenstein story. The book version for a change, which is nice. It starts with Adam (the monster's name now) burying his creator when he is attacked by demons. Why are they attacking him? How do they exist in the same universe as Adam? Who knows. Then he's rescued by gargoyles. Not the stone kind, but human-looking ones. Why do they rescue him? I dunno. Who are they and why are they trapped on Earth? Are they fallen angels or something else? I dunno. The film is astonishingly uninterested in such basic matters of world-building.

The woman in charge of the gargoyles takes pity on Adam and asks him to join them in their fight against the demons. Apparently there's a war that's been going on for eternity. So what are they fighting over? Why does Adam need to choose a side and join in? I get that the demons are probably bad because they have ugly faces, and in this kind of film that sort of surface appearance usually means someone's evil. Wait, aren't gargoyles supposed to be horrific and scary-looking? Frankenstein too for that matter? No wait, they're good so they all look sexy. It's as simple as that. But seriously, there is no hint of who these guys are or how they operate. Either of these sides.

So this woman gives Adam weapons and then he tears off, apparently training himself in a mountain-climbing fight montage. He accepts his place in this war with remarkable little question. He doesn't ask any of these very basic questions or even seem more than slightly surprised when these supernatural beings show up.
