Based on the graphic novel of the same name, this generic adaptation simply takes the page to the screen without breathing any real life into the frames - It’s clichéd and blotchy, simply biding time between fight sequences. This CGI-reliant fantasy does boast seamless and impressive visual effects, but that’s about as far as the positives go. The performances are monotonous and uninspired by an otherwise talented cast and the story is less than original and weak, with Adam appearing like an incidental character.
While it has good pace at a tight 92 minutes, this is by no means an offensive waste of time to its viewers - there’s just nothing special about ‘I, Frankenstein’ at all.
