Dr Frankenstein, who created his monster, conveniently disappears early on, and the creature takes over his maker’s name.
This project is all special effects, lightning bolts in 3D, terrifying flying creatures that look like angels on steroids, tumbling buildings and a sort of Frankenstein For Dummies, an instruction book on how to create a monster.
This means that the creature tries to guard his master’s book with his life as he is not too keen on having brothers and sisters.
Eckhart fights flying devil-angels that swoop from a creature-infected moon. If it weren’t for 3D one might fall asleep, as the fights become monotonous if you don’t care about the characters.
