The acting was horrible ... especially for Dracula and his 3 vampire whores ... Why did they chose that actor to play the legendary Dracula ... Anyways, Jackman was fine ... He and kate where the only good actors in this pathetic movie ... Their where so many special effects that I got bord....I give this movie 2/10 ( 1 point for hugh & 1 for the beautiful kate ) ..

Van Helsing movie should be a reminder to the world that tossing ever known horror stereotype (Dracula, Frankenstein, Werewolves, etc etc) into one movie will NOT get you a horror movie but a laughing stock failure.

I personally think that Sommers went the wrong ruite with this movie, by going more along the lines of the mummy returns other than the mummy.

TMReturns was more childish with stupid humor and fake CGI (like VanHelsing) where the Mummy was more enjoyable and quaint, with story based action and excellent dialouge.

I thought Van Helsing was just TOO korny and action based, like the scene where Van has to fight the three brides . HOW MANY TIMES CAN YOU DROP A CROSSBOW AND PICK IT BACK UP!!!!! :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

Just an example of pointless action with no meaning other than to entertain. The mummy is my favorite movie, so in my opinion this movie doesn't deserve a rental or a buy. Anyone reading this, save your bucks for I Robot.

It was good, but definitely not great. 7/10ish good. It was a bit slow in some parts.

Haven't seen this yet. On my list for sure. Kate Beckinsale was great in Underworld, and Van Helsing has the same feel about it. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

I WISH Van Helsing was like Underworld. UW is much more serious with a better story. (You never crack a smile-I like my action movies that way)

I love those lines Lonely Istari!

My fav are

Evie: Patience is a virtue.
Rick; Not right now it isn't.

GOD I LOVE THAT MOVIE!!

Van Helsing was a terrible movie IMO. Liek Soma said, HOW MANY TIMES CAN YOU DROP AND PICK BACK UP A CROSSBOW! hahaha! It was just a waste of my time, but thankfully the film messed up and i missed the last 5 minutes so I got to see Shrek 2 for free hahaha! Kate did a terrible job on Van Helsing, but I liked her a lto in Underworld. Underworld is an AWESOME movie! One of my all time faves.
