Consensus: Loud, incoherent, and dramatically listless, I, Frankenstein is a remarkably dull fantasy adventure that fails to generate much excitement or interest in its characters.

Ben Sachs
Chicago Reader

This novel premise quickly gives way to lots of chaotic action, though there are numerous incidental pleasures throughout.

Philadelphia Inquirer

The special effects are pretty good and the fight scenes are adequate. But the film loses steam in the fourth act ...

Tara Thorne
The Coast (Halifax, Nova Scotia)

Stabbing along at a plodding 90 minutes, I, Frankenstein is toothless and dull, with no fun to be found, a PG-rated Saturday morning cartoon at best. Keep swinging, Eckhart.

It's no fun. Everyone takes this way too seriously.

Tom Russo
Boston Globe

Stitches up Aaron Eckhart's chiseled face like a baseball cover, sticks him in a hoodie, and promptly crashes, thanks to a complete inability to resist awful, overdone dialogue and faux-lofty exposition.

J. Olson

Writer-director Stuart Beattie and his cast and crew tear into their bad idea with vigor.

What the film doesn't have is a sense of humor.

If the film is made with the understanding that campiness needs to be straight-faced to be funny, then are its "unintentional" laughs really that unintentional?

Independent Online (South Africa)

Whether in 2D or 3D, it does not have enough of a plot to intrigue or the character development to keep your attention off the clichés, derivative designs and that there is way too much CGI.

Stuart Beattie creates a monster of a film, based off of a monster. I, Frankenstein leaves nothing on the table, but the problem is that it doesn't put… More
