Just watched I, Frankenstein.
How was it? The thought occurred to me several times during the movie that the late teens/early 20s version of me - you know, the angry individual that came up with the concept of Patch - would have made this movie if he had the resources.
What's more, that version of me would have thought that it was COMPLETELY BAD ASS, and would have been saying the angry one liners along with Mr. Eckhart with passion.
It was awful.
There were some great ideas. Some solid acting. Some adequate special effects. (Of course they were over done because some executive somewhere was sure that they would bring the crowds back for more.) One painfully long 'slow mo walkin in front of explosions cuz I'm a badass' battle scene. Some writing that was so bad it took you out of the movie because you were making an effort not to laugh out loud.
If you're an angry teenager though, I'm sure you will love it. I certainly would have. What's more, I would be lying if I said that there was no part of me that still did.
