If the film is made with the understanding that campiness needs to be straight-faced to be funny, then are its “unintentional” laughs...

To be fair, Eckhart is physically impressive and Bill Nighy and his raised eyebrow do their best in the role of demon leader Naberius. But...

At the very least, it does provide an easy excuse to sit in a heated room eating popcorn.

I, Frankenstein is nowhere near as garishly, ghoulishly awful as "Van Helsing," Universal’s last attempt to resurrect its classic monsters....

The Dissolve

By Tasha Robinson
While it’s nothing new and lacks individualistic touches, it’s still solid trashy fun as an overwrought superhero origin story.

Sadly, as apt as comparisons to "Underworld" might seem, I, Frankenstein can't even clear that very low bar.

Eckhart doesn’t really do any of that classic grunting as Frankenstein 2.0, but maybe he should have.

I, Frankenstein

By scafanbar
Overall a great movie. The effects were good but not over the top. For those thinking this is just another horror flick your wrong. The movie stands alone with a good storyline and the way the ending...

I, Frankenstein Departs from Original Mary Shelly Story and Original Universal Pictures Movies

By jwolford6
This is strictly conjecture. Would the original author, Mary Shelly, tell this kind of a tale as follow-up or as a continuation of the original story. I doubt it! Special Effects were good, but I...

Very Enjoyable Film

By zacharyharris54
So sick of hearing all the critics, and wannabe critics bash this movie! If your looking for an Academy Award nominated movie, then don't see it. However, if you want to go see some sweet action,...

I shoulda Waited

By michaelgall
The movie was just ok…nothing special. I didn't have high hopes going in but remember thinking (before shelling out my $30) that I should probably wait till it comes on the DISH. I was right....

Good movie to go see!

By Leechlover
I wouldn't say it was SPECTACULAR, but overall it was a good movie. I loved the special effects, and it didn't have all the sex, nudity and innuendos that most PG movies have nowadays. It's decent...

Had a slow start, but it was MUCH better than I expected it to be! VERY good!

By kevinott777
Some of the dialogue in certain parts was a little silly and/or cheesy but all in all this movie was a TON of fun: great action scenes, awesome special-effects, and world-class acting from some of my...

so bad

By rebacorrigan309
huge holes in the plot. Went with a mixed group of people and NO ONE liked it. Some people sitting near us were laughing out loud at how bad the film was....

Hokey - Hokey - Hokey!

By johntique
... Sorry to be negative, but this movie was just too silly - and too contrived to be taken seriously. Mary Shelley is spinning in her grave! Adam? - the monster? Where did they get this name?...

Good Movie and Great Story

By MrJRJordan
If you watched the true story of Frankenstein, then this story will make sense to you. It follow the monster after Victor Frankenstein dies. I enjoyed it and will pick it up on Blu-Ray when it comes...
