Science experiments can be very interesting, especially for scientist Victor Frankenstein; he created Adam (Aaron Eckhart). Since Adam is immortal, he survives many horrific situations and gets caught in the middle of a centuries old battle between the gargoyles and demons. Both clans desperately want to discover the secret of Adam's immortality. I, Frankenstein is an action packed, violent, sci/fi movie based on a graphic novel, "I, Frankenstein." 

Initially Adam reacts violently when meeting people. However when he's introduced to Terra ( Yvonne Strahovski), we see another side to Adam. She tells him, "You're only a monster if you behave like one." He gradually learns to protect and care for others.
The film is very violent and dark. Though there is a lot of action, I don't think the storyline will appeal to most kids.
Sexual Content: None
Violent Content: Excessive
• There are violent and graphic battles between demons and gargoyles throughout the film.

• Adam gets into several brutal situations. He falls from high places crashing to the ground, he even goes through the ground, landing on a subway car.
• Adam gets into numerous fights; slicing people with blades, punching and hitting characters with clubs.
• A man is strangled to death.
• We see thousands of corpses.
• We see injured characters with bloody open wounds.
• The demons and gargoyles are scary looking creatures, they will most likely scare young kids.
Crude or Profane Language: None
Drugs and Alcohol: Mild

• Characters are shown drinking at a nightclub.
Will it Appeal to Kids? No
As I previously mentioned, I, Frankenstein is a violent and creepy film, one that will not interest kids or teens. Though the language, alcohol and sexual contents are mild, parents need to be aware of the excessive violent content woven throughout the film.
