Frankenstein’s Army Review (2013)

 

Frankenstein’s Army is found footage film showcasing many creative monsters and creatures during World War II time.

The Story

Toward the end of World War II, Russian soldiers pushing into eastern Germany stumble across a secret Nazi lab where they were experimenting with army of strange creatures. The scientists have used the legendary Frankenstein’s work to assemble an army of super-soldiers stitched together from the body parts of their fallen comrades..

The Review (Spoiler Free)

Best part of the movie is seeing all these fascinating and unique monsters and creatures.  There are lots of them, and every monsters are different.  I like the fact that all the monsters are not in CGI.  The team of special effects team actually created these monsters and they look very cool.

Besides the monsters, the movie is just an average movie.  The acting is sub-par and there is no real character development at all. All the Russian speaks with fake English accents and it does gets bit annoying.  Some of the characters were so terribly annoying that you wish them to get killed by the monsters soon as possible.

I don’t know why they shot this movie in found footage style. The movie is shot beautifully in HD with stabilizer using 1930’s video camera technology.  This just makes the movie more unrealistic and bit annoying.

Overall, the story is very simple and the pace of the movie is good even though it starts out bit slow.  But in second half, the pace really picks up. The entire movie reminds of first person video game.

The ending is good.  I like the fact that there is bit of twist and turn in the story at the end, and I like how they end of the movie. It is satisfying.

In the Nutshell

Frankenstein’s Army is not a perfect movie, but if you want to see some fantastic creature design, give this movie a try. I give 4 out of 5 stars.
