“I, Frankenstein”: “Not only God can create life now.”
For over two hundred years, Creation, descended from the pages of an English gothic novel by Mary Shelley, is haunted by the workers of culture and art. On the topic of philosophy and ethics works written many cultural works, and the expense of films and plays based on the themes, runs into tens.
The story begins from the moment at which to stop already become a classic statement of Danny Boyle called “Frankenstein” – Victor Frankenstein and his Creation wander in the snow. On this interpretation adopted by Mary Shelley’s work ends: Creation, which is given the name Adam (which is quite symbolic), is in the midst of good and evil. In principle, and Adam was on the border of morality, breaking the foundations already one fact of its existence.
Excellent battle scenes between the demons and gargoyles (which serve paradise) do not give off the screen for a moment. Although most of the events transferred to the situation of the modern city, is not how much influence on the epic event. A bet made on IMAX, played in full. “I, Frankenstein” is exactly the fact that the audience was waiting for him – a visual feast. In this case the writers are very careful to the literary original – Adam mentions events that happened to him before that happens in the movie, on the cover page of a diary written by Victor Frankenstein “University of Ingolstadt.” This is certainly the little things that a viewer who has not read the novel, does not notice, but that they do not become less enjoyable. In addition, the distinction between “bad” and “good” in the picture, as in the book is very conditional. “Good” Gargoyles will also humiliate and lie Adam Frankenstein.
By and large Beattie could make your movie more profound works, but it aims to create a first-class visual attraction. Although philosophical reasons in the picture there. Among the servants fight heaven and hell Adam Frankenstein conducts its struggle, which is not only in response to a question whether he has a soul, but whether he is worthy of life in general.
Strong production with great specials. effects has no flaws. Is that the actors could be more expressive. By Executive starring no complaints, Aaron Eckhart wonderful actor with a pleasant appearance. But other than Bill Nighy and Miranda Otto, do not look very memorable. Although one of the representatives of the angelic hosts by name Baruchel (Deniz Akdeniz) looks very impressive.
Whatever was in his task of creating heroic characters, as if descended from the pages of a comic book, they cope. And not acting the main thing, it’s a blockbuster and mostly chief here – artistic director. A strong acting work will be the next in chronological variations on the theme of Victor Frankenstein and his creation in Paul McGuigan play Daniel Radcliffe, James McAvoy and Andrew Scott.
Stuart Beattie made a great movie in IMAX, balanced in all respects. In some ways, it can be considered fan fiction from a man familiar with the printed product. Of course, the director does not rise to the level of the philosophical foundations of the novel, but blame him can not, because of this and was not supposed to. If Adam had not had Frankenstein goals in his life that he “did not ask, but received – fought for it”, then “I, Frankenstein” brings the hero to a new level. Now Adam was not just fighting for survival, but maybe get a chance to find their destination, albeit quite fantastic.
