I, Frankenstein review

Less than the sum of its parts…

He’s alive! But you might wish he wasn’t after seeing this knuckle-headed fantasy. Aaron Eckhart muscles up as Adam, a stick-fighting, ass-kicking version of Dr. Frankenstein’s creature caught up in modern-day war between gargoyles and demons.

Adapting from the graphic novel by Kevin Grevioux, who was also behind the Underworld series, Pirates Of The Caribbean scribe Stuart Beattie directs as if his life depends on it – which means sacrificing subtlety and throwing as much CG at the screen as possible. Eckhart goes for broke as the tortured soul, but only Bill Nighy, as a demonic tycoon, has any real fun.
