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.

By James Berardinelli
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.

Great Movie!!

By donddv
They have added a new twist to the story, but no spoilers. The IMAX experience was unbelievable, worth the little extra money. The sound was like you were wearing headphones and the thunder and...

Frankenstein's Monster...

By candiceacollins
Such a good movie! It's not bloody, but it is packed with action and it has a great story line. You really get an understanding of what it is to be loved by no one and feared by all....

You should go!

By lpadulles
If you are into SyFy movies, you have to go see it. It certainly has lots of action and great effects from start to ending. I thought it had some silly parts but, they soon passed and the action was...

Not much

By sybilholt
This movie left a lot of things out....and left you with a lot of questions. The entire point of the movie was non existent. How much time passed? What happened during that time? Why now? Where...

Great Action flick!

By G-MAN983
Great special effects! Story so-so, no twists, but overall the movie was VERY enjoyable. Saw it in IMAX 3D and it was definitely worth it! If you're looking to be entertained for 1.5 hrs, then...

Awesome Movie

By Craigs65
My wife and I watched this movie in a IMAX 3D theater and it was one awesome experience. I would say this is a must see there was no profanity and no sex but it was exciting all the way through....

I, Frankenstein

Paying the extra for Imax 3D turned out to be well worth the money. The quality of the picture is amazing and it really worked especially well with this movie which had a lot of action and fantasy...

over done and too loud

By maxbeauregard
The sound was way too loud and destroyed what could have been a great musical score. The 3D effects were so over produced they lost their impact with repeated and continuous explosions and crashes....

A Great IMAX 3D showing!

By Morpheus_Prime
The story was different, but some of the actors chosen for the movie will remind you of other series (tongue-in-cheek!). The special effects were great, even in 3D. Very entertaining. It may become a...

Much better than expected...

By YngLuv_1001
I love these sci-fi type movies, but I essentially went because Aaron Eckhart was in it. I was surprised that it was even better than I anticipated! Great concept and excellent depictions! I would...
