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..”

GONE GIRL :

“..expertly crafted entertainment, but falls short of Fincher's finest..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

AUTUMN BLOOD :

“.."Autumn Blood" is such a film, an odd, unpleasant 2011 thriller..”
by Roger Moore [Movie Nation]

THIS IS WHERE I LEAVE YOU :

“.."This Is Where I Leave You" leaves them all to their own devices. If they had a reunion free of this overwritten and clunkily directed movie, that would be worth going to..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

KEEP ON KEEPIN' ON :

“..intimate and affectionate..”
by Sheri Linden [LA Times]

FORT BLISS :

“..writer-director Claudia Myers presents us with an unflinching and complex character study of an imperfect woman juggling motherhood..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

THE SCRIBBLER :

“..the script that Dan Schaffer adapted from his graphic novel can't seem to find a credible dimensionality for his story or characters..”
by Gary Goldstein [LA Times]

HECTOR AND THE SEARCH FOR HAPPINESS :

“..even with appearances by such dependable performers as Toni Collette, Stellan Skarsgard, Christopher Plummer and Jean Reno, the interminable "Hector and the Search for Happiness" will most likely inspire audiences to search for the exit door..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]

DR. CABBIE :

“..it does so in a cheeky and charming way and, although Dr. Cabbie is clunky in places, it mostly works..”
by Bruce DeMara [Toronto Star]

TUSK :

“..it's watchable, fun, sick, sad and has to be seen to be believed..”
by Kevin C. Johnson [St. Louis Post-Dispatch]

RECLAIM :

“..a truly bonkers Z-grade thriller..”
by Drew Hunt [Slant Magazine]
