'MUCH BETTER THAN MANY CRITIC'S SUGGESTED'
on 31 May 2014
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.......it certainly entertained me, put me
in mind of the '2004' 'Hugh Jackman' - 'Kate Beckinsale' movie 'VAN HELSING'
I'd say, if you enjoy fantasy adventure movies....This could well be worth watching at least.
