After a failed attempt to propose to his girlfriend, Alan Jones is beaten to within an inch of his life by a street gang and taken to a mysterious lab where Dr. Tanner Finski and his kid genius assistant perform horrible experiments on him hoping to re-animate a Frankenstein. The experiments lead to a hole being ripped in space and time, manifesting an Army of Frankensteins from hundreds of parallel universes and sending them all back to the 19th century, directly into the heart of a bloody battle between the North and South. History will never be the same.
This movie is literally about people going back in time to the Civil War and bringing with an Army of Frankensteins to help fight the South. I was really shocked by what the movie was about. This movie got the greenlight to be made. The idea was brought to people, and they thought this was a great idea for a movie. Are you serious? I know concepts like this have been made before, but that does not mean that it should continue. Those movie really did not do that well, so why would someone think that this movie would be a success.
The look of the Frankenstein monsters were a bad take on the green skin, square flat head with a dark suit. It is a cookie cutter look. They did not even try to make the monsters look different, so they would really stand out. The movie could have stood out more, if the monsters looked different. They would have maybe helped the movie out. The blood and gore in the movie was pretty good. That was the best part in the whole movie.
This movie could not even get the fact from the time period right. The movie was set during the Civil War at a battlefield. There is a black female slave that is helping fight in the battle. First of all, women of any race or color were not allowed to be on the battlefield. Second of all, white men would not have let a black female a rifle to fight. The white men were racist. It did not matter, if they were having sex with the women. All of this made this movie nothing but Science Fiction. It is so far-fetched that it is not even funny, or a good movie to watch, for that matter.
This was a bad movie. It is not worth watching at all. This is one of those movies that you really need to skip. It is not watching even one. I watched it, so you don't have to.
