I, Frankenstein (2014)

Director: Stuart Beattie

Stars: Aaron Eckhart, Bill Nighy, Miranda Otto, Jai Courtney

Two centuries after Dr. Frankenstein assembles and reanimates his creature, Adam is still living. He becomes embroiled in a war between two immortal races: gargoyles, the traditional protectors of mankind, and evil demons. Since Adam is neither human nor demon, gargoyle Queen Leonore and demon Prince Naberius each want him for their own purposes. It is up to Adam to discover his inner humanity and the reason for his continued existence.

This movie was all about the special effects and not the story. I mean two immortal races are working on capturing Frankenstein, but in this movie he is called Adam. They made Frankenstein's Monster more of a human than a monster. I mean he looks just like a human. It made it looks more like an action adventure movie than a monster movie. I felt cheated in a way. I wanted to see a monster, not an actor.

The special effects looked great in this movie. The gargoyles were flying through the air. They looked great and so did the movement of the creature. The action of the movie was well preformed. It was the story and the pace of the movie that was so bad. The story was just not really there. It was a bit boring. The pace of the movie was just slow and dull. Even though there was action going on in the movie, it was a bit too late at times.

This maybe a movie that some people will want to see. I was not really one of them. It was barely worth sitting through once. Watch if you must. Enjoy.
