Interview: Aden Young discusses SundanceTV's 'Rectify'

31 March 2014 9:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"One Daniel to another. Perfect," Aden Young says as we're connected on the phone. It's no surprise that Young feels a deep connection to Daniel Holden, his character on SundanceTV's "Rectify." A 35-year-old man freed after spending 19 years on Death Row for a murder we're not quite sure if he committed, Holden is the sort of deeply tortured and intriguingly internalized character who I suspect must be hard to set aside at the end of the day. It's a bit of a shock, in that light, to be reminded that Young, like seemingly half of the leading men on network and cable TV, is Australian by residency and upbringing and Canadian by birth. While Young has a strong roster of Aussie film, TV and stage credits, "Rectify" is his biggest America TV role, which offers the pleasant pleasure of enjoying Daniel Holden without a decade of screen baggage. It's similar »

Film Review: 'I, Frankenstein'

31 January 2014 12:46 AM, PST | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★☆☆☆ Unless you're a fan of the original source material on which a film adaptation is based, you'll likely derive more pleasure from the viewing experience if you go in knowing nothing about it beforehand. This is certainly the case with Stuart Beattie's action fantasy I, Frankenstein (2014), starring Aaron Eckhart, Bill Nighy, Miranda Otto and Yvonne Strahovski. The greatest creation of the infamous Victor Frankenstein (Aden Young) has survived his maker's best efforts to destroy him. Leaving humanity behind, the monster (Eckhart) has lived over two hundred years in the frozen wilds beyond the furthest reaches of civilisation.

"I, Frankenstein" - brilliant action, unwieldy plot (Ians Movie Review)

29 January 2014 11:08 PM, PST | RealBollywood.com | See recent RealBollywood news »

Film: "I, Frankenstein"; Cast: Aaron Eckhart, Yvonne Strahovski, Miranda Otto, Bill Nighy, Jai Courtney, Socratis Otto, Aden Young, Caitlin Strasey, Mahesh Jadu; Director: Stuart Beattie; Rating: **

Adapted from Kevin Grevioux's graphic novel, which has been inspired by Mary Shelley's Gothic novel "Frankenstein", the film, "I, Frankenstein" is an action-packed fantasy cum horror science fiction, survival story of the fittest. But unlike Mary Shelly's psychological masterpiece, Director Stuart Beattie's film is a drab facsimile on celluloid.

The film begins eerily. In 1795, a hooded guy with a horrifically scarred face. »

I, Frankenstein - Ron Balicki and Diana Lee Inosanto Talk Bringing Martial Arts to Movies

28 January 2014 9:44 AM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Ka-li (noun): 1) One of the manifestations and cult titles of the wife of Shiva and mother goddess Devi, especially in her malevolent role as a goddess of death and destruction, depicted as black, red-eyed, blood-stained, and wearing a necklace of skulls...

2) Eskrima, Arnis and Kali are umbrella terms for the traditional martial arts of the Philippines ("Filipino Martial Arts," or Fma) that emphasize weapon-based fighting with sticks, knives and other bladed weapons, and various improvised weapons.

It also includes hand-to-hand combat, joint locks, grappling and weapon disarming techniques.

More and more, martial arts action sequences are becoming integral to genre filmmaking. From the "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" series (1997) and Blade (1998) to The Hulk (2003) and Resident Evil: Apocalypse (2004), we’re seeing more and more cinematic heroes who are kickin’ ass. One commonality in all of the aforementioned films are the action choreographers/stunt people: Ron Balicki and Diana Lee Inosanto. »

New I, FrankenStein Movie Delivered Lots Of Action,Drama But Weak & Weird Story

25 January 2014 8:41 PM, PST | OnTheFlix | See recent OnTheFlix news »

New I, FrankenStein movie delivered lots of action,drama but weak & weird story. Lionsgate released their new action/horror flick, "I,Frankenstein," into theaters this weekend. I just checked it out, and I have to agree with the top critics on this one ,and give it a pretty poor rating, because the storyline just didn't interest me at all. It was just so weird. The only good note about this film, is that it did offer a lot of action, but the action just seemed pointless,since the plotline fell seriously flat. It stars: Aaron Eckhart, Bill Nighy, Yvonne Strahovski, Miranda Otto, Jai Courtney, Socratis Otto, Mahesh Jadu, Caitlin Stasey, and Aden Young. In the new flick, Frankenstein monster (Aaron Eckhart) is rescued from demons by gargoyles after killing his creator ,Dr. Victor Frankenstein's wife, Elizabeth. From there, the Gargoyle queen, Lenore ,names Frankenstein, Adam. Shortly after that, Adam »

Why, Frankenstein?

25 January 2014 12:40 PM, PST | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

Now we know why Us distributor Lionsgate chose not to screen I, Frankenstein for the critics in advance of its Us debut last Friday, and why the release was postponed from February 2013. The Melbourne-shot 3D action-thriller, written and directed by Stuart Beattie, has been shunned by Us audiences and excoriated by reviewers. The film starring Aaron Eckhart as Frankenstein.s reincarnated corpse who battles gargoyles and demons in 21st Century London, opened with $8.6 million at 2,753 screens, far lower than most pundits. predictions. It ranked sixth behind the second weekend of buddy cop comedy Ride Along, the fifth frame of war drama Lone Survivor,. animated films The Nut Job (week 2) and Frozen (week 10), and the second weekend of Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit. The reviews were near unanimous, with just two "fresh" and 41 rotten on Rotten Tomatoes, for a pitifully low score of 5%. Based on a graphic novel by Kevin Grevioux, creator of Underworld, »

Clark Collis at Entertainment Weekly, gave it a 50 score,stating, " To be fair, Eckhart is physically impressive and Bill Nighy and his raised eyebrow do their best in the role of demon leader Naberius. But I, Frankenstein shares something else with it's monster-hero, something much worse than its patchwork nature: The film is distinctly lacking in the soul department." Frank »
