In I, Frankenstein, Aaron Eckhart plays a one-of-a-kind creature, neither a human nor a monster. The film features shots of him walking alone against the backdrop of sprawling snow-covered plains, several shots of humans transforming into troll-like monsters, the Frankenstein character is riddled with perfunctory existential crisis, there's endless banter between humans whether to refer to this creature as "it" or "him", a male scientist (who is actually a monster in human disguise) wanting to kill him, a human female scientist who first wants to study the titular creature but ends up being the only one who understands him, a battle between living gargoyles and monsters to take control of the earth… you get the idea? It's something we've seen so many times before that one exactly predicts where this film is going, and it doesn't bear a pinch of emotional weight, doesn't evoke any thrills whatsoever that a more exuberant picture would. How can it, with a narrative so mind-numbingly generic, characters so flat, and treatment so sluggish that tedium sets in right from the opening portions, never refusing to leave. Good thing they kept it short at 95 odd minutes.
