You know the stories of Dr. Frankenstein and his monster which he created, but do you ever wonder what would have happened if Frankenstein's creation was still alive today? Well, that is what you can see in this new film.

Let's talk cast. First, Aaron Eckhart. He really gets into this role and you can tell while watching, he truly brings you into the film. Seeing him in this, makes me really wish he would have had a bigger role as Two-Face in the Dark Knight series. His skill of acting 100% serious in what makes him a really good selection for this role.

Any 'Chuck' fans out there? Well then you all know the wonderful Yvonne Stahovski! You can see a lot of her role of Sarah from 'Chuck' in her 'I, Frankenstein' role of Terra. The fact that she can be serious and happy in her roles is what makes her great in this film. Here is what I have to say, if you are a fan of Yvonne in 'Chuck' and Aaron in 'The Dark Knight' then this is an action movie for you.

Speaking of being very serious in their roles, let's talk about Bill Nighy. From Alex Rider: Operation Stormbreaker to Pirates of the Caribbean and Harry Potter, you will rarely see this man smile in one of his roles, at least not in an evil way. That fact isn't a bad thing, it is part of what makes him a great actor because it is his thing. This also makes him amazing with this role, because you wouldn't want to see him smile in this film.

The whole cast was great but let's talk story.

Now, I found this movie good but at the same time an issue with it as well.

I think if they had made the film a little longer, they could have made more of a story with how he lived 200 years. Meaning I wanted to see more of how he learned to live as years went by.

With that being said, do I think this will be the Oscar winning action movie of the year? No. Do I think this is a great 3D action film worth going to see? Yes, it is 100% worth seeing.
