Victor Frankenstein has created his monster (Eckhart). The monster has killed Frankenstein’s wife. Frankenstein has hunted his monster to the arctic circle. Frankenstein has succumb to the elements and died.

When the monster takes his creators body back to the Frankenstein family home for burial, he is attacked by demons searching for Frankenstein’s journal and the secret of creating more monsters. The monster is saved by two gargoyles (created by Archangel Michael) and taken to the gargoyle queen (Otto). The gargoyle queen dubs the monster Adam and sends him on his way with weapons to fight the demon forces.

Adam survives for centuries fighting demons with the gargoyle weapons. However after a human is killed by one of the demons he is fighting, Adam discovers the demon side has an army of Frankenstein’s monsters ready to unleash upon the world. It’s up to Adam to work out who is friend and who is foe in order to stop the abomination army from being released on the world.

Bill Nighy is one of my favourite character actors. He always delivers something special and his role as the head demon in I, Frankenstein is no different.

I, Frankenstein was a movie that, when I saw it in the cinemas, it started out with five people in the cinema. By the very end, there was just me. Now, that may not seem like your average four-star movie, but bear with me.

I, Frankenstein was fun. It had cheesy acting, ridiculous dialogue, and could probably have done with more funds in the special effects budget. But it is a MONSTER movie. About a creature built from corpses and brought to life by a mad scientist. It’s not supposed to be deep, it’s not supposed to make you consider your life choices or make you really think about the state of the world. It’s supposed to be good mindless fun.

In that I, Frankenstein does what it does and it does it pretty gosh darn well.
