Comments: A family is reunited. Akai and his mother and father are all together. Akai is the new Frankenstein’s monster, his mother Dr. Josephine Baker his creator and the father is a big hulking cyborg robot called The Bride. It is quite the family reunion.
Josephine has a beautifully designed outfit. The Bride as well looking amazing as a cyborg robot designed for killing.
The original Frankenstein monster is attacking the new version. Well, things are not always as they seem as to who is right and who is wrong.
Racism is brought into the story. Yes, the new Frankenstein’s monster is dark skinned and so were his parents. Not sure what it has to do with the story though or why it is pointed out right at the end.
When the two Frankenstein monsters do battle Akai comes up with a unique way to fight back. This is something new that has never been tried before. It is well worth seeing.
