I, Frankenstein

Rated 1.0

The premise of director Stuart Beattie and Kevin Grevioux's script is dopey enough to send the comic-book crowd over the moon: Frankenstein's creature (Aaron Eckhart) is enlisted in a war between good gargoyles (led by Miranda Otto) and evil demons (under Bill Nighy). The creature (now named Adam) refuses and goes his own way for 200 years. Then he gets involved again when the battle breaks out in the 21st century—chief demon Nighy wants Frankenstein's secret of creating life so he can bring his demon soldiers back from hell—and, of course, he tricks a sexy female scientist (Yvonne Strahovski) into helping him. What can you say about a movie where gargoyles are the good guys? It's the usual storm of CGI fire and brimstone; if it had been called I, Fred no studio would have given it a second glance.
