What happens next is the basic plot of any Frankenstein movie and Mummy movie mashed together.
Obviously the monster is brought to life and is angry, the Mummy is brought to life and is...well.....angry.
Then everyone falls in love with the main girl.
Pretty simple. Right?
Except for the moment of Frankenstein's monster becoming human like intelligent and gaining a not very nice personality thanks to the brain of Frankenstein's ex psychopathic helper Carter taking over completely.
Well, that's a problem for everyone.
Throughout the film we hardly get any action, it's mostly dialogue and unfortunately a lot of it falls flat and fails to impress.
The main characters get a bit of action with the obligatory sex scene, and of course the monsters get some action but very briefly right near the end of the film.
As well as the dialogue falling flat, so did most of the actors acting.
I'm pretty sure some of them just didn't care and Ashton was probably thinking why the hell am I doing this movie when I'm easily the best actor here.
She really was. She was actually likeable and believable but was the only one who came across that way.
But then even the monster's acting were better than most.
But I was surprised at the makeup used, the Frankenstein's monster looked terrible and rubbery whereas The Mummy looked quite well done and realistic. And if a guy looking rubbery and unable to move his face much can out act everyone, you've hired the wrong people.
I have to say the whole thing was admirable as they did seem to try their hardest.
It was unfortunately not hard enough and casually sits amongst the middle of ratings.
If the film was about 20 minutes shorter and had a few more fights between the monsters and/or kills instead of crappy dialogue it wouldn't be as dull as it is.
If there's a sequel somehow, I hope Damien Leone (writer and director) learns from his mistakes.
The film is on DVD from the 13th April and you can order here.
