Critics Consensus: Guess I, Frankenstein's Tomatometer

Plus, Gimme Shelter is earnest but clumsy, and Gloria is Certified Fresh.

This week at the movies, we’ve got only one new wide release: the dark fantasy adventure I, Frankenstein, starring Aaron Eckhart and Bill Nighy. What do the critics have to say?

I, Frankenstein


Apparently, the folks behind I, Frankenstein were concerned that the critics would respond to the film like torch-wielding villagers, so they decided not to screen it prior to its release in theaters. Aaron Eckhart stars as Dr. Frankenstein’s creation, an immortal being that gets sucked into a brutal conflict between demons and gargoyles. Hey everybody, it’s time to play guess the Tomatometer! (And check out this week’s total recall, in which we compile a list of some of cinema’s most memorable Frankenstein movies.)
