So if you’re a pedantic nerd like me, you’ll be shaking your fist at the fact that they call him Frankenstein. Victor Frankenstein created the creature. The doesn’t have a name, at least not in the novel.
Well, apparently, in this version he does. The creature, Adam, took his creator’s surname as his own and for 200 years, has walked the earth. And now he’s got to fight an army of creatures that are like him. Sounds kinda exactly like Underworld. But who cares. Aaron Eckhart looks great all scarred up in leather.
I, Frankenstein is based on the Darkstorm Studios graphic novel. I’ve never heard of either until just now so I have no idea how closely the movie will follow. But I don’t think we’re looking at real deep character development here. I think we’re looking at Aaron Eckhart chopping mother fuckers in twain with his ax blades.
Looks like a fun, interesting take on Frankenstein’s monster and probably worth a ticket in a theater.
