I, Frankenstein

Paid actual money to see I, Frankenstein at Paradigm on Wednesday night. Luckily because (I guess) the mass exodus had started, it didn't take too long to get myself a ticket and to kill some time before the movie. 

Like Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters the year before, it's one of those mindless popcorn movies. I think someone somewhere must've asked themselves: what if Frankenstein's monster had six-pack abs and kills demons? 

Because it's an American-Australian production, it's not just Aaron Eckhart, there are also Australian actors like Miranda Otto, the guy that was Bruce Willis's kid in last Die Hard movie and the chick from Chuck. And some of the movie is filmed in Australia.  
  • A Gargoyle Order that protects humans from demons? Really? Okay then... 
  • The whole spirit "ascend" and "descend" thing was erm... right... I'm guessing humans can't see it when the Gargoyles ascend to Heaven then?
  • Inappropriate laugh during the movie: If you've seen The Lonely Island video Cool Guys Don't Look at Explosions, you might get it. It's during the start of the climatic big battle scene.
Anyway, it's as mo liew as it gets, so watch if you've nothing else to watch or have no desire to watch any of the CNY-themed movies that are aplenty this weekend. If you liked Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters or Van Helsing, you might like this one.
