QUICK TAKE:
Action Fantasy: Frankenstein's monster may hold the key to ending a centuries-old war between Satan's demons and God's gargoyles here on Earth.
PLOT:
In the late 1700s, a scientist named Dr. Victor Frankenstein (ADEN YOUNG) uses electrical currents to reanimate a human being who he has sewn together using a dozen different body parts from eight different corpses. The monster, eventually named Adam (AARON ECKHART), turns on his creator and becomes a hunted man. Those doing the hunting are demons from Hell and gargoyles from Heaven, locked in a centuries-old war for the fate of mankind.

The demons under the leadership of the Dark Prince Naberius (BILL NIGHY) want to harness Frankenstein's science to reanimate hundreds of human corpses collected over the decades to make an army. Naberius employs a human scientist named Terra (YVONNE STRAHOVSKI) to continue Frankenstein's experiments in the modern day. Meanwhile, the gargoyles under the leadership of Queen Leonore (MIRANDO OTTO) fear that Adam lacks a mortal soul, yet still want to use his great strength and speed to their advantage in battle.

Adam eventually must choose sides after Naberius' and Leonore's top army commanders -- Zuriel (SOCRATIS OTTO) and Gideon (JAI COURTNEY) both attempt to kill him. When it becomes known that Leonore has been hiding Frankenstein's manual on how to reanimate dead people for decades, demons plot to steal it for their own nefarious purposes. Adam, meanwhile, is hopeful the book holds the key to his origins.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
