Reviews: I, Frankenstein (2014)

i_frankensteinReviews for this film from our members:

  • Dragan Antulov @ Draxblog VI [Croatian]
  • Rick Aragon @ Rick’s Cafe Texan
    • Excerpt: Somehow, I can’t find it in my heart to dismiss I, Frankenstein, despite how often it fumbles.
  • [New – 6/26/14] | José Arce @ LaButaca.net [Spanish]
    • Excerpt: Los creadores de “Underworld” regresan con una historia de batallas fantásticas que transcurren al margen de los ojos del común de los mortales. Un auténtico desastre de película, serie B-Z.
  • Edwin Arnaudin @ Ashvegas
    • Excerpt: Though none of the cast does anything he or she should be proud of, Eckhart’s scowl and monotone are an especially dull combination that, while representative of Adam’s soulless nature (a point that’s made abundantly clear), does the film few favors.
  • Steve Biodrowski @ Cinefantastique Online
  • Tim Brayton @ Antagony & Ecstasy
  • Kevin Carr @ 7M Pictures
    • Excerpt: This film is its own Frankenstein monster because it sews together disparate story concepts from three or four different genre and tries to bring it to life. Yet like the Frankenstein monster, it is an abomination.
  • Glenn Dunks @ Quickflix
  • Susan Granger @ www.susangranger.com
    • Excerpt: Such mind-numbing drivel – Mary Shelley must be spinning in her grave!
  • Vadym Grygoriev @ kinoblog.com [Ukrainian]
  • MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
    • Excerpt: It’s alive! In a technical sense: images flicker on the screen, etc. But it is a soulless, unholy monstrosity. Behold: the movie without a protagonist!
  • Ben Kendrick @ Screen Rant
    • Excerpt: Style over brains at every turn (but not a total train wreck either).
  • Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic
    • Excerpt: I, Frankenstein is so silly, yet played on such one note of deadly seriousness that it’s irksome no one involved decided to include at least a glimmer of humor or even a fright. It’s pretty bad, and it doesn’t even have the decency to be bad in a fun way.
  • Ross Miller @ Thoughts On Film
    • Excerpt: When it’s not explaining its utterly ridiculous, incoherent twaddle that is its mythology, it’s doing its best to bore you into submission with action that’s badly choreographed, overly reliant on dodgy CGI and, worst of all, terminally dull.
  • Pat Mullen @ Cinemablographer
    • Excerpt: This steaming pile of January release is reviewed as a drinking game to make the film more tolerable.
  • Frank Ochieng @ Focus of New York Magazine
    • Excerpt: [A] disjointed disaster…let us just say that Frankenstein creator Mary Shelley would never imagine the iconic monster man being inexplicably trapped in such crappy kitsch as Beattie’s horrifying hogwash.
  • Jason Pirodsky @ Expats.cz
    • Excerpt: I, Frankenstein – based on a comic book by Kevin Grevioux, who also wrote Underworld and stars as one of the head demons – was never going to work, but it’s been competently assembled by a team of experienced technicians in a vain attempt to bring it to life. It’s only sin? The lack of a soul.
  • Amir Siregar @ Flick Magazine [Indonesian]
  • Frank Swietek @ One Guys Opinion
    • Excerpt: Pretty much a mess…terrible.
