REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Not quite bad, but it's not recommended either.    Readers  Be the 1st!

“..utterly witless, listless, sparkless and senseless, this supernatural actioner makes one long for the comparative sophistication of the conceptually identical "Underworld" franchise..”
by Andrew Barker [Variety]
1 of 4

“..this "I" is an avenging brawler, sort of "Blade" in a blender, with "Underworld" and "Highlander" elements tossed in..”
by Roger Moore [Movie Nation]
“..the blinkered screenplay and indifferent performances fail to lift the eschatology and self-searching off the page..”
by Nicolas Rapold [NY Times]
2 of 5

“..I, Frankenstein makes a weak attempt at offering up a fresh iteration of the iconic character using a thoughtful moral dilemma..”
by Perri Nemiroff [Shock Till You Drop]

“..I, Frankenstein is remarkable only for how bad it is and how swiftly it will unseat Adam Sandler when next year's Razzie Awards are handed out..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]
2 of 5

“..don't waste your time. The meaning is money; the aim is a franchise. Beattie keeps the pace moving, Eckhart holds our attention, and that's pretty much a win..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News]
1.5 of 4

“..depth of character is out of this realm. Emotional resonance has been lost to the netherworld..”
by Bob Fischbach [Omaha World-Herald]
“..all truly feels lost..”
by Robert Abele [LA Times]
1 of 4

“.."I, Frankenstein" is a bland mess of a film with nothing going on upstairs and not a thing to separate it from the wave of dreary, likeminded sci-fi/action exercises..”

SELFLESS :

“.."Self/Less" is brain/less entertainment, but if there's any consolation, the impression it leaves is so fleeting that you can soon replace it with better movie memories..”
by Kevin Jagernauth [The Playlist]

FAITH OF OUR FATHERS :

“..a clumsily told story of friendship and wartime remembrance that has a tough time serving up a halfway believable moment..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

STUNG :

“..director Benni Diez tries for schlock shocks in this giant-bug flick. Sadly, what's left out here is the fun..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

THE DEATH OF SUPERMAN LIVES: WHAT HAPPENED? :

“..the movie is fun to watch, even if it isn't always fully satisfying. Too much time is spent depicting all the designs for the film that were ultimately scotched..”
by Stephen Farber [Hollywood Reporter]

JACKIE & RYAN :

“..a homey but surprisingly enjoyable ride through honest old mid-America..”
by Deborah Young [Hollywood Reporter]

AMY :

“..a tender, intimate, nuanced portrait of a pop idol with an appetite for destruction..”
by Stephen Dalton [Hollywood Reporter]

MALA MALA :

“..Mala Mala has no kinship to the rawness, if not ugliness, of Jennie Livingston's classic documentary, whose camera worked more like a curious open pore, and less like a hagiographic machine..”
by Diego Costa [Slant Magazine]

LARRY KRAMER IN LOVE AND ANGER :

“..the film follows the familiar narrative, which is neatly compressed in the title..”
by Matthew Gilbert [Boston Globe]

MAGIC MIKE XXL :

“..as Magic Mike XXL closes with fireworks and Tatum's winning smile, the film is obviously satisfied that it has overturned some mired tropes - and frankly, so are we..”
by Stacey May Fowles [Globe and Mail]

TERMINATOR GENISYS :

“..a bad time-travel movie..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]
