Not good, but not soo bad it's good.

-Frankenstein Vs. The Mummy (2015) movie review: -Frankenstein Vs. The Mummy is a modern telling of the classic story my Mary Shelley which is just how it sounds. There's Frankenstein's monster. And there's a mummy. And they fight.

-A few problems with this overall Syfy original quality film right off the bat: The monster is not called Frankenstein. The story is not modern. And once you get those two wrong, you have a generic vs movie that makes Freddy Vs. Jason look good.

-The story is poorly adapted to modern times, and therefor lacks any sort of motivation. Things just happen for the sake of happening. And nothing that happens is any sort or believable.

-The pace is sloppy, jumping unevenly between making Frankenstein's monster to awakening a mummy, and then 45 minutes of mummy to 45 minutes of freaking Frankenstein's monster. Also trying to fit a love story between Victor Frankenstein and the girl who knows things about mummies drags the film even more. Also, we get to finally see Frankenstein's monster fight the mummy! Literally 9 minutes before the end INCLUDING credits. And they fight for about as long as the Dinobots from Transformers 4 do, about 2 minutes.

-The acting is meh. They try, with little success, to act.

-The characters are all inconsistent and lack motivation. And Frankenstein's monster should not have a character change to a dislikable jerk when his brain kicks in or whatever, but he does. So nobody in the film is likable or is available to root for.

-The music is all the same and not good.

-I will go ahead and give a shout-out to a few elements that make the film not garbage: The makeup and effect were noticeable. There was not a lot-to-no CGI in the film, meaning everything was makeup and practical effects, which were over-the-top but impressive. -The film had a few moments that I did not expect either. I was like 'Woah!' or 'Oh, I hope it ends like this!' Problem is it literally ruined every good moment with a bad follow-up.

-It is not so bad it is good, it is just bad, and the modern update kills any chances of it being entertainingly cheesy. So without any further adieu, Frankenstein Vs. The Mummy is not worth seeing. Ever.

Bland

The mummy of a cursed pharaoh and a reanimated corpse terrorize a medical university. Only an Egyptologist and a college professor, the deranged Dr. Frankenstein, may be able to stop the creatures before it's too late.

First off, I really despised the actor who played Dr. Frankenstein. He seemed like he was supposed to be charming, but he came off as being an ignoramus and a complete tool. Oh, and the poor script of philosophy jibber-jabber. Whoever wrote the "philosophy of medicine" speech is not very knowledgeable on philosophy.

Tal Zimerman dismisses this film as a "clunker", though the makeup of Damien Leone is rightly praised. Zimerman is right. The film is a clunker, bland, and not particularly memorable. The makeup is above average in quality, though, and hopefully someone notices. But the good-looking bad guys are not enough reason to watch this.

Clash of Universal Monsters

In New York, the professor of the medical university Dr. Victor Frankenstein (Max Rhyser) is buying body parts from the janitor Carter to build a corpse and reanimate it. The Egyptologist Naihla Khalil (Ashton Leigh), from the same university, has just returned from an expedition and brought the Mummy of Usekara (Brandon deSpain), an evil and cruel pharaoh that was cursed, leaving his soul trapped in his mummified corpse. Victor and Naihla have a crush on each other and they date. Meanwhile Professor Walton (Boomer Tibbs), who is chief of department where Naihla works, accidentally releases Usekara's soul and is possessed by him. He kills his assistant Isaac (Robert MacNaughton) and his blood awakes the Mummy. Then Walton lures his student Lenora (Stefanie Merola) and the Mummy eats her heart. Frankenstein's monster (Constantin Tripes) is reanimated and Victor is surprised with his capacity. But soon both monsters want Naihla: Frankenstein's creature to force Victor to transfer his brain to a new body and the Mummy believes she is the sorcerer that trapped his soul and wants Naihla to call off the spell. What will happen to Naihla?

"Frankenstein vs. The Mummy" is an entertaining horror movie that uses the classic Universal monsters. There are good lines, but the limited budget limits the film to few characters. The exotic beauty of Ashton Leigh is impressive and the plot is well resolved. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): Not available on DVD or Blu-Ray.
