Two Hundred years have passed since 'Victor Frankenstein' created a living being.
'Victor' died trying to find his creation to exact revenge for the death of his wife at
the hands of the creature, however 'Victor' had frozen to death in his pursuit.
The 'Demon Prince' failed to capture 'Victor's' creature back then because of the
intervention of 'Mankind's' protectors, 'The Gargoyles' who fight off the 'Demons'
the Prince had sent.
The Gargoyle Queen gives the creature a name 'Adam'
'Adam hides himself away until present day when he returns into civilization, he finds
things are very different today.
The Demon Prince 'Naberius' (Bill Nighty) after all these years still wants to capture
'Adam' ( Aaron Eckhart) to examine how he was brought to life by 'Victor' all those
years ago, 'Naberius' has an army of tens of thousands of corpses to bring back to life
under his command, at this stage 'Naberius' is unaware that 'Victor's' journal has survived
down the years.
The 'Gargoyles' lead as before by 'Leonore' (Miranda Otto) come to aid again of 'Adam'
'Adam' needs answers he befriends the scientist 'Terra' who is working at 'Naberius's'
Lab, but is unaware of who her boss really is.
If the corpses are given life, 'Mankind' could be wiped out, 'Adam' finds himself embroiled
in a deadly battle of 'Good against Evil'
(This release is in both 3-D and 2-D)
The film is jam-packed with stunning special effects, the 'Gargoyles' and 'Demons' a work
of art to behold, terrific battle/action scenes.....Many Critic's and Reviewers have slated
this spectacle, well, the film was made to entertain.......

I'm going to start off with an apology. Sorry. There, I've done it. What am I sorry for? I'm sorry because I know what I am going to say about I Frankenstein, and it isn't pretty. Neither is the monster, played by Aaron Eckhart. I've not read the graphic novel this film is based on, but can say without reservation that it has to be better than this film. It HAS TO BE. It can't not be. First of all it won't have the annoying voice-over with Mr Eckhart digging into his boots to find a macho enough voice for the character.

Sometimes a voice-over works, such as in Blade Runner, where even though the film is better without it, at least the voice-over is well performed. This is not even close being as it is mostly exposition and still nothing of any great interest. It sounds contrived from the get-go and after a while is a little grating.

There's a simple plot at work here where the Frankenstein's Monster (Eckhart) is fighting other monsters because they are bad guys (Demons), and at that time is also being chased down by the good guys (Gargoyles). So we already have a mish-mash of creatures a bit like the Hugh Jackman "Van Helsing" effort. I quite liked that one, it was a little eccentric and tongue in cheek, which "I Frankenstein" isn't. It borrows heavily from Van Helsing in the overall style but lacks the humour, instead pouring on endless special effects of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer variety.

The graphic novel would also be better because it wouldn't have a soundtrack that goes from so quiet that you can hear a pin drop to something sounding like the apocalypse is taking place in a biscuit tin.

Ok, so I'm not impressed. Let's talk a little about his appearance.

I like the original monsters, Dracula, The Mummy and of course Frankenstein's monster but there are so few good movies based on these sort of tales anymore and while I would count I, Frankenstein among them I actually did enjoy the film a decent amount.

I, Frankenstein carries on from where Mary Shelley's original story left off following the monster, Adam (Aeron Eckhart) into a more modern day over 200 years after he was created by Dr. Victor Frankenstein. He is sucked into an underground war between Gargoyles and Demons. The demons led by Neberious (Bill Nighy) are after him to replicate what Frankenstein accomplished for nefarious ends and the Gargoyles being the good guys are rather against that.

The basic plot isn't too bad and I liked the reason why he's being chased but it's a little stilted in places and the Gargoyles were fairly unlikeable personality wise, just felt like they were getting in the way of Adam's story. Aaron Eckhart isn't too bad as Adam, especially in the 1795 scenes where he is quite freaky though the modern day version isn't quite as effective. Bill Nighy is just himself so great.

The film has a lot of action as modern films tend to, some of it was pretty cool, especially the large Gargoyle/Demon battle scenes but it feels like a few slower moments of Adam's reflection and growth would have been perhaps more suspenseful.

The special effects are fantastic and very stylish such as when Gargoyles change to human their wings sweep down into cloaks, it's very cool. The Blu-Ray has very few in the way of extras, a couple of commentaries and two short making of featurettes, a bit disappointing.

Overall it was a fun over the top throw away movie. It's worth giving a go once, but it's not a keeper in my eyes.
