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.

Austin Chronicle

By Marc Savlov
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.

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

Boston Globe

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

It doesn't come close to working, but it's sweet that they tried.

Critics will hate it because its not 'shakespeare'. If you like movies like this (Fantasy), then you'll love it. Great special effects and actors do a good job. Its entertainment. After a rough...

Solid Story and Action

By jbodre
I, Frankenstein had a solid, enjoyable story and good action scenes. The gargoyles and demons were scary and nice to look at. Aaron Eckhart did a nice job in this movie....

Not the worst, not the best

Bright flash of descending red and gold fire with requisite noise (repeat 19 times) Bright ascending spotlight with angelic sound effect. Repeat sequence, again and again. That's all she wrote...

If you Like Underworld

I saw this in IMAX 3D and I was highly impressed. Non-stop action and the few low points were not boring. I will go see it again just to take it all in....

Novel Idea

By barbarasprince
Can't say I "LOVED" it, but it was worth the time and the money. Plot was good, makeup was excellent with one exception. Why would they put obvious scarring to indicate that Adam was made of...

Don't waste your money

I've like Mr. Eckhart in a number of movies in the past so I thought I'd give this a chance even though I didn't have high expectations, but in this case I could have set the bar on the floor and...

Entertaining movie
