    The little 3-D movie that could!

    I've seen this movie before in 2-D and enjoyed it and never thought I would get it. But now that I'm capable of watching 3-D movies, and since I found it for nine dollars, I decided to purchase it. Well, I believe the little movie that I enjoyed watching in 2D, I enjoyed far more in 3-D. Yes to me 3-D made a difference. I was very impressed with the quality of the 3-D. And as far as I'm concern, though the movie takes place mainly at night, with my set up, it look wonderful in terms of clarity, image quality, and 3-D! It has two audio commentaries, one by the writer/director, and another by filmmakers associated to the movie. It also has two featurette's, "Creating a Monster" and "Frankenstein's Creatures". I have watched the featurette's and enjoy them very much. But can't tell you anything about the commentaries as of yet. It also says it comes with a digital copy, but the sheet inside says that it's expired after 5/13/15. All in all I'm very glad that I purchased this 3-D copy! As for the movie itself, you'll have to decide that one on your own. Remember, I'm giving it five stars for the disk, and I did enjoy the movie.

    Perfect Sunday Afternoon Movie -- Be Reasonable

    Seriously... be reasonable here. Have you seen the trailer for this movie? If you're looking for a high-quality, earth-shattering, heart-racing supernatural good vs. evil movie go get Underworld off the shelf or something. This movie promises so little but honestly delivered more than I expected. Full disclosure -- my wife and I sometimes crave a "not so spectacular" movie for a Sunday afternoon. Maybe it's a throwback mood to 80's flicks for us. I don't know. I do know however, that we have a shelf dedicated to movies like this that aren't going to make me try to hard to follow, but still be entertaining and interesting plot-wise. It's cheap... just buy it. And it's in 3D! If you ask me, that's the only way to watch a monster flick if you can!

    New take on Mary Shelley's monster

    Posted
    deevwatcher

    Nice examination of a commonly misunderstood literary figure who is commonly, and mistakenly, referred to by his human creator's name, something which is remedied here. The monster Adam, as portrayed by Aaron Eckhart--which is not that much of a stretch, as the actor has previously portrayed the likewise tragically disfigured Two-Face from The Dark Knight--despite a horrific past, has more humanity and more soul than the supernatural agents of God who exploit him for their never-ending war. While the film could have been better, I can't believe the overwhelmingly negative reviews of the movie, and it has only reinforced my desire to find the graphic novel this film was based on, something which has been difficult--to say nothing of a desire to seek out the source material by Mary Shelley.

    Frankenstein Reimagined

    "I, Frankenstein" is an original take on the Frankenstein's Monster story. Aaron Eckhart is believable as the brooding monster, though the plot has him allying with gargoyles to fight demons--a far cry from the original Frankenstein story we all know. To be fair, "I, Frankenstein" begins where Mary Shelley's Frankenstein ends, so it's anyone's guess where things would go from there. Bill Nighy is cast as the demon leader, and he's excellent as always. There's plenty of fighting, fiery special effects, and the 3D is a nice bonus. Ultimately, this is a popcorn flick that entertains but isn't hefty on story or runtime (it's under 90 mins long). However, if you like fantasy and sc-fi, "I Frankenstein" is a fun experiment and worth a watch.

    Surprisingly Decent movie.

    ANOTHER Best Buy Deal! This 3D & D.C. version was cheaper than most places had the DVD. The story isn't just another retelling of the Frankenstein story line concept. It takes place approximately 200 years after he was created and the character has been named Adam... still "alive" but he gets caught in a war over humanity's fate or destiny and he realizes that he could be responsible for (or preventing) the destruction of mankind. Aaron Eckheart, who was in The Dark Knight among other things, plays the "monster" and teams up w/scientist played by Yvonne Strahovski, who was in the TV show Chuck. A Surprisingly Decent movie even better in 3D.

    I, Frankenstein (Blu-ray 3D)

    Pros:The 3D and special effect were very good (this was the main reason I purchased it.) Cons: The movie bombed. The acting and direction were poor, and the plot was weak and convoluted. Aaron Eckhart failed on this attempt, but it's clear the director lacked some focus here, even though he has made better movies. One of the writers (Kevin Grevioux) previously worked on the underworld movies, which I did not care for, but if you like that series then you may like this as it depicts similar conflicts and characters (preternatural) involved in an epic struggle for survival It was the first time I had seen the film

    Fun Movie - Great Price

    I had not seen this film in theaters, so I was waiting for the 3D Blu-Ray to go on sale - just in case I didn't like it. Well, it finally went on sale - for a very reasonable price, given it is 3D. I ordered it, went out to dinner, picked it up at my favorite Best Buy store, and watched it after dinner. The 3D effects were nice. The story was original. The acting was perfectly fine. I was very happy with the overall experience. Was it Shakespeare? No. But I wasn't looking for Shakespeare! If you like sci-fi, horror, or fantasy, and especially if you have 3D, check this out!

    Better Than Van Helsing

    This is the best Frankenstein-ish movie I've ever seen. It could have been more serious or dramatic and win awards and Oscars, probably, but I liked seeing this movie AS IS. Awesome effects and a dramatic plot that avoids too much headache inducing things and it is different as well. Frankenstein's monster Adam (Aaron Eckhart) is both creepy and likable with every dramatic and exciting scene that unfolds. This could have been a different movie but I like it the way it is. This was way better than Van Hel-something. It's freaky awesome!
