I, Frankenstein

Okay so I haven’t done a review of anything in a while as I’ve had a lot going on. But today ladies and gentlemen I have made a grave error that I hope to prevent all of you from making. Today I went to sew I, Frankenstein and this was literally one of the worst uses of money since the invention of dolphins GPS (yes I’m aware its not a real thing). Now for those of you who don’t know this “film” is an Australian-American movie written and directed by Stuart Beattie, now this is the same guy who brought us such blockbusters as Pirates of The Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl, Punisher: War Zone, and G.I. Joe: Rise of The Cobra. Now he served as writer and director to this abomination of a movie. The title role was portrayed by Aaron Eckhart, if you think you don’t know the name I Googled him, he played Harvey Dent in The Dark Knight (yeah I didn’t notice it was the same guy either) it also stars Yvonne Strahovski (who has been in literally nothing I’ve ever seen) but the one saving grace is that Bill Nighy is in it ( he was in Underworld and Harry Potter). But one major problem I have with this film is there is no depth to the characters at all, absolutely none, which is something that truly confuses me, how can you have a film with no character depth? Seriously? How could you do that? Like how is that even possible? One thing that would of improved this film would of been the casting of Hugh Jackman in the tile role (who for reasons unknown to anyone is called Adam) the camera work at times is and odd concept, there’s this one scene where the camera is shaking for some reason whether it was meant to or not I don’t know, there doesn’t appear to be any form of plot to follow and has too many clichĂ©s for my liking, it’s actually quite annoying. Another major let down is that the had guys lead by Bill Nighy are more likeable and less threatening then the “good guys” who seem to understand their mission less then the audience do, I don’t know why Lionsgate have put their name on this I honestly don’t. In short avoid this movie it is terrible its an abomination to cinema and film lovers everywhere. Although it had one good point, the credits rolled up eventually

I have no rating for this film

  1. Cannot believe a film like this was released in the year of 2014. And on a $65 million dollar budget. It is just insulting, not to mention a huge waste of money they will never make back…

    • I think the worst part of it is the fact that the writer and director Stuart Beattie has had great success in the past
