What parents need to know

Parents need to know that I, Frankenstein is an action/sci-fi movie, based on a comic book, that recasts the famous monster as a new kind of superhero, with super-speed and strength, and immortality. Most of the movie consists of fantasy fighting, with blades and martial arts weapons. When defeated, characters disappear into fire and light, with very little blood; the main character sustains one minor, bleeding wound so that the female character can dress it. The sculpted, chiseled main character is shown shirtless in one scene, and female characters wear somewhat sexy outfits, but otherwise sex is not an issue.
  • Families can talk about the movie's violence. What's the difference between fantasy violence and realistic violence? Does it affect how you feel while watching?
  • How does the movie compare with the original Frankenstein story and its themes? Does man have the right to create life?
  • Is the monster a hero in this movie? How are we supposed to feel about him?
