A frenzied yet dull Underworld clone from the same writer

I, Frankenstein: Directed by Stuart Beattie and written by Stuart Beattie and Kevin Grevioux

Week 8: Tomatometer rating for this gem is 4%

This week's wonderful offering comes from the creator of the Underworld series, an idea stolen from a mix of sources and made dull and lifeless even by schlocky B movie standards. This is a very similar movie. All you have to do is replace gargoyles(angel stand ins) and demons with vampires and werewolves and replace Romeo and Juliet with Frankenstein and presto change o you have this movie.

I hope though you don't go in hoping for some character motivation or development of any kind. It starts with the most basic information about Frankenstein and throws you into a war between two opposing armies. It gives you no more information than that. It is the story of a chosen one, a certain character who can change the course of everything.

It hops from one action scene into another with little rhyme or reason. It doesn't really make sense. You have no idea what Bill Nighy's character is doing until the very end. It is a twisted little knot of plot threads. It involves Aaron Eckhart's Adam and him lacking a soul. It is just an excuse for wild and crazy scenes.

It moves quickly enough and it doesn't get bogged down in too much. It is a little too serious. The acting is bland all across the board but then again I'm not sure anyone really cared that much when it came to that. The oddest thing about this movie though is they talked about protecting mankind, the gargoyle/angel creatures did anyway but you never see any people. It briefly features an European nightclub with some people and one lone police officer who ventures into a movie set alleyway but after that the city feels completely empty. Where are all the people when this insanely huge massive battle and huge mansion being destroyed with wild explosions are taking place? It makes the reality of the situation feel left out. It loses you from becoming immersed in the world, well that and the terrible gargoyles effects and the goofy kids playing dress up feel of the human version of the gargoyles.

I can not recommend this. It fits right in the middle as far as this little experiment goes. It's not painful to watch but it is definitely a whatever movie. I give this movie a D.

God is not the soul creator of man

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.

An underrated movie

In a fantastic world where godly gargoyles fought against the evil demons, each of them disguised as humans and living among them, Frankenstein, the creature, is brought to life by an ingenious scientist. Here, he gets caught in the middle as the demon prince wants to study him in order to create an enormous army. Thus, he must choose which side he's on before humanity gets threatened with extinction.

It's a gorgeously animated world, looking impressive from any point of view, in which a large scale war is unraveling. Frankenstein is forced to take action as he becomes the most wanted for the demons, but his soulless nature is going to play a big role in the upcoming future. As I said, it looks astonishing, and although its story isn't, by far, groundbreaking, nor its characters, its action scenes, together with some dramatic ones will definitely create an enjoyable view. I know it's not a flawless movie, but I consider it pretty underrated for what it offers in comparison with what it promised to deliver.
