One review

  • OK, let’s face it: You don’t really expect an Oscar nominee, if you are seeing Frankenstein on “the cover”. But I have seen it anyway, and I wasn’t disappointed. I have to say, that it is pretty much the best movie, you can do out of the material – or better: it is the best movie, which was ever made out of the material. The gargoyles and the demons both have their agendas. Especially the gargoyle queen is not about “save this poor creature”. There are though some consistency hick ups. E.g. how could the demon prince stored corpses over centuries, and why they weren’t all rotten? Why does the bodies need this ugly cuts (if modern surgery don’t really need this extremely large openings). Why does Frankenstein has a “cohesive” body – he should be made out of body parts of different corpses?! Why can the demon “general” abduct the gargoyle queen without her resistance – she shows later, that she is a powerful gargoyle herself. And then is the typical Hollywood projection of demons and hell. Boring! Demons are fallen angles – why are they not beginning to show them like that?!

    But this is nitpicking. It is a surprisingly well done movie, with really good (but not over the top) CGi. Popcorn cinema!
