“I, Frankenstein”

MOVIE ONE STAR

Rated R
1 hour 30 minutes
Aaron Eckhart, Bill Nighy, Miranda Otto

CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – You’ll recall I said that “Devil’s Due” was the worst movie so far this year.

That was before I had to sit through “I, Frankenstein”. Apparently the man made monster has more staying power than even I imagined. Let’s hope this wretched movie doesn’t.

The Monster’s dragged kicking and screaming into the present for this silly creature feature.

No amount of stitching can hide Aaron Eckhart’s embarrassment at having to speak the incredibly dumb dialogue. He’s caught in the struggle between rival creatures the Gargoyles and the Demons. No, I’m not kidding. Demon Prince Bill Nighy has visions of following in Dr. Frankenstein’s footsteps by also getting to say, “It’s alive”.

Kids might enjoy the visual effects but beyond that, “I, Frankenstein” is a complete waste of time. Especially when the actors speak their lines as if they’re drowsy from too much medication.

Just when I wondered whose responsible for this crummy movie, Eckhart blurted out, “Frankenstein made it possible”. So now they’re blaming poor Dr. Frankenstein for their lack of judgment.

As long as you know, movies don’t come any worse than “I, Frankenstein”. It’s so unintentional funny, I don’t have the heart to give “I, Frankenstein” any less than one star.

They actually expected moviegoers to pay to see this rubbish?  What can I say?
