I, Frankenstein Movie Poster
I, Frankenstein is a 2014 movie that tells the story of a timeless war between Demons and Gargoyles (representing the powers of Heaven and Hell respectively). Their centuries long stand off comes to a head when Victor Frankenstein (Aden Young) creates his monster (Aaron Eckhart). At first the demons attack him furiously, not realizing that he holds the key to their eventual dominion over the Gargoyles…
If this all sounds terribly familiar to you, it’s probably because it is. I, Frankenstein watches like a reboot of the Underworld series, which tells the story of a timeless war between Vampires and Werewolves, their centuries long stand off comes to a head when… well you get the picture (both movies were based on the works of Kevin Grevioux and produced by Lakeshore Entertainment).
The film has been widely panned and rightfully so. If you want quality writing or deep moving performances, you would best turn your attentions elsewhere. However, it is a decent action romp, and can be a good introduction to the themes of In Nomine (much like how Underworld can provide a good introduction to White Wolf’s Vampire: The Masquerade and Werewolf: The Apocalypse).
