I, Frankenstein (2014)

If you ever walked into a cinema and saw this poster in front of you hanging on a ten feet wall, you’ll convince yourself that this will be one hell of a movie, but let me tell you that what you see isn’t what you get.

I, Frankenstein, it’s a movie similar in genre to the world known franchise Underworld, where I think the creators of Underworld want to play a male hero in their new Frankenstein movie to have other baby Frankenstein’s on the road. When I sat on my chair and started to watch the movie, from the first ten minutes I was sure that the director is the writer, where he jumped from one whole to the other, missing so many main and pillar points in the storytelling. When you keep watching the movie you can see that the storyline drops in many Occasions and the actors are almost forced to play their roles, there’s no real emotions, no feeling of the characters that they’re playing at all. I have to say while watching the movie I almost fell asleep three times, and the loud special effects are just another excuse to distract the viewers from the major mistakes.

Over done dialogue.
The storyline is weak and falls in many occasions.
The main character (Adam) isn’t acting like a soulless creature.
