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..”

BIG EYES :

“..despite its sharp feminist sting, Big Eyes never loses its light touch..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

PK :

“..PK movie is all that you anticipated, a paisa-vasool entertaining movie that will enthrall you for sure..”
by Priyanka Prasad [Filmibeat]

INTO THE WOODS :

“..will entertain youth audiences yet contains enough sly humor and narrative complexity to keep adults engaged..”
by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter]

NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM: SECRET OF THE TOMB :

“..there's a serenity to museum visits, especially if it's a place you know and love. "Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb," amazingly, recaptures that feeling in big-studio franchise form..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

ELF: BUDDY'S MUSICAL CHRISTMAS :

“.."Elf" offers some slight, warmed over charms, but viewers would be better off catching one of the umpteen TV showings of the original "Elf" movie..”
by Rob Owen [Pittsburgh Post-Gazette]

THE INTERVIEW :

“..wild and wildly uneven..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

TWO DAYS, ONE NIGHT :

“..it's a rare film of unforced simplicity that will stick with you for a long time. And it's honest right to its perfectly judged ending..”

THE GAMBLER :

“..a slick remake of the gritty original is marked by sharp performances..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

by Scott Foundas [Variety]

SONG OF THE SEA :

“..a gorgeously rendered animated feature from Ireland..”
by Boyd van Hoeij [Hollywood Reporter]
