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.......

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.

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.

The special effects in this, are top quality, and the story could not be more different,
to Mary Shelly's original, (if I've spelt her surname right..?) Give it ten minutes,
and let the new story line set in,and then you'll find that it is well worth watching,
for a bit of fun, and entertainment, I thought Frakenstein's monster in this, wasn't ugly or,
gruesome enough, like in other films, as he is portrayed as an anti-hero in this,
where as the monster is just a violent creature in the original, but it's good for a wkd evening,

And the price is right...

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.
