Movie Review: I, Frankenstein (2014)

Length: 1 hour & 32 mins
Released: 2014
Genre: Horror, Mystery, & Sci-Fo
Rating: PG-13

Where I Got It: Netflix


Set in a dystopic present where vigilant gargoyles and ferocious demons rage in a battle for ultimate power, Victor Frankenstein's creation, Adam, finds himself caught in the middle as both sides race to discover the secret to his immortality. 


This has been on my TW list for a while now, but I never got a chance to watch it in theaters. Finally, it appeared on Netflix! Yayy! Honestly, I wish I did get to see it on the big screen. The visual effects and fight scenes were awesome. We have a decent sized TV, but nothing compares to the huge cinema screen. Oh well.

I loved the concept of this movie. I loved following on with Frankenstein monster's story and opening his eyes that he has worth, he has a mission - kill demons. The demons want to take him in and learn the secret of how the doctor was able to break the code of life. The gargoyles the protectors of Humans from the demons and help out the monster and even named him, Adam. The name had me roll my eyes - too obvious what the Queen of the Gargoyles was doing. haha WHICH I was super excited to see some familiar faces in this film especially Mirando Otto - I haven't seen her in anything in a while. I loved her as the Queen. :)

This was a fun movie, with fun effects, fight scene, and interesting characters - especially the gargoyles who are put down here by God to defend the humans and fight the demons. The name of Adam was silly (and the actor was meh - HOT as heck, but meh) and I did not like the love story. IDK. I feel like it was forced and it took away from Adam finding himself. *shrugs* Maybe it was because I wasn't expecting a love story. Also, I did not like the very last scene - it was cheesy. 

All-in-all, this was a fun movie. A couple cheesy parts (like the love story), but I did like it. I wish I seen this in theaters, but what can you do? Sometimes you have no time. I am glad that it was put on Netflix. I heard rumors of a sequel; why can't they leave well enough alone? Sighs. Anyways, I recommend this for those that like fantasy movies with good fight scenes. It also seemed a little UF. Out of five stars, I stamp this with...mmmmm...3. 

Favorite Character(s): The Gargoyle Queen, Gideon (the actor should stay with brown hair - he looks WAY better), and the rest of the gargoyle gang
Not-so Favorite Character(s): Terra (meh)
Re-watch?: Sure if it was on. It is worth another watch
