I didn`t want to go on "Van Helsing" to the cinema. I thought that is plastic and not interesting film. But now, when I saw the movie, I`m very pleasant. The speccial effects are great and Hugh Jackman is the best actor i ever saw!
The worst movie of the year.
I thought it was a really good movie. I really enjoyed it. With the idea of all the difrent famous mosters together it really created someting good. I especially liked Richard (Dracula) Dressed up with the earring and the PONYTAIL! So I thought it was really good. 5/5 from me!
I thought this movie was the best movie ever. I hate horror movies but this one is the best because of Hugh Jackman. He plays the coolest characters in movies, especially dark & mysterious characters like Gabriel Van Helsing.
this movie made me want to stab myself in the face
i thought van helsing was absoultely brilliant special effects were just amazing and hugh jackman is just a god as always!! brilliant film can`t wait till they bring out a sequel- which i hope they do! Ne1 hu says this film is boring needs their brain checked - its sooo fast paced u wouldn`t wanna blink incase u missed summink
I enjoyed the movie alot. I loved David Wenham as Faramir in LOTR ... I love him even more as Carl :)
I can`t get over how many people don`t like Van Hesling, they have serious issues. In my opinion this has just become my favourite movie. The cast, location, and story line couldn`t have been better. I absolutley loved everything about the movie. I certainly don`t reccomend waiting until it comes on to VHS and DVD. I went to see it when it came into the theatre`s and it`s worth it!For all you people out there are thirst for adventure, excitement, and horror this movie is for you. And if you are a fan of all the Hollywood monters: Count Dracula, Frankenstein`s monster,and Wolf Man you won`t want to miss this! Out of 10 I give it 10! Out of 5 s
i find the move was enjoyable to watch...great action scenes and kate beckinsale was hot.... i`m glad i didn`t listen to the critics and ppl who bash this movie. we all know that van helsing wasn`t going to win a grammy but was supposed to be a fun summer movie.. also i find that most of the ppl that didn`t like this movie was female....so does that count for anything????
i loved the movie but i speacil love hugh jackman greated movie in my book
this is the BEST show ever. better then the lord of the rings.i loved how it was action packed and yet still has a sense of humer.this is the best show ever i`m even goin to see it again.
it was one of the best movies iv seen i wish there was another one
I enjoyed Van Helsing very much, as a matter of fact I saw it twice. Critics just don`t get the point. I like all the special effects. Don`t compare it with earlier Dracula movies. This is now, not the 1930`s.
Wow Wow WOW!This is one summer movie you could really sink your teeth into! It was really entertaining and had really good graphics. i went to see it 3 times in a week! Acting A directing A- graphics A+ storyline A+
no plot. its all about special effects. I would like to see more in-depth story into it. Story line is the heart and soul of the movie. PERIOD!!!!!!
2 words.. van helCRAP!
Terrible movie. We left half way into it becasue we couldnt take the fake accents and horrible acting anymore. It started off with some hope based on the special effects and the story line wrapped around the familiar fictional characters, but that only lasted for the first 15 minutes. Incredibly boring, dull, horrible acting, horrible story line....dont waste your time or money on this one.
when i saw the trailer i thought it would be greate film,but Unfortunately it was`nt. it was totaly ripped off " Truly dissappointing - I had higher expectations. WHY?????????
It was the best movie in the world!!! WHAT A THRILLER!!!
Special effect is not bad, except the ending scene (image of a face in the sky) is too cheesy, not touching at all, even a bit funny. Maybe it`s a bad idea to have Beckinsale feature in two movies that are both about bats and wolves in close time period. Plot is okay but "Underworld" is better; a lotta details are incoherent (and there`s Frankenstein???I don`t understand why Frankenstein???)
I liked the movie despite the bad reviews and comments i read. I don`t find this movie stupid at all! And i donno where everybody got that idea of horror movie?????????? When i saw the poster or whatever the trailer it remembered me of the Hercules wiz Kevin Sorbo and it is a wonderful adventure and i don`t remember ANY PART OF THE MOVIE WHERE I WAS GONNA FALL ASLEEP!!!!!!!!(like KIll BILL 2 comeeeeeee ONNNNNNNNNN it suckssssss I fellt bored really bored)... Overall The action is non stop, flooding suspense, beautiful music, and amazing camera effects the spend lots of $$$$$ on that and it is clear. For those who did not like it, go bo
No Originality, lacks...No Brainer. I will not view this movie.
A very good idea that was excuted very poorly. It was almost as bad as Troy. Some of the special effects were good. Overall, not worth the time or especially money.
It was right up there with Jeeper Creepers, without the heckling...no, wait...Jeepers Creepers WAS better. The only good thing about the movie - Hugh!
Great Mix of Action and Comedy. Interesting way the story was weaved together to incorporate all the characters. Great sets.
I loved the movie, once again the critics are rong. Its filled with action, intense scenes and one spooky blood-sucking Dracula.There is also the Wolfman and Frankenstein all thats missing is Steve Sommers the mummy but some of the acting was hard to believe. Overall it was a great way to start the summer movies.
I saw this movie there is lots of special effect on werewolves, vampires and frankenstein in every times to fight each other that I like to watch. They are much better than old times of dracula and werewolves movie like the poor graphics. Hope to have Van Helsing 2 with Hugh Jackson coming soon.
Don`t go to this movie if you want originality, a finely crafted plot, excellent characterisation and authenticity. Expect gothic hilarity- a fun night out, with lots of popcorn.
I Thought the special effects were absolutely amazing. I think you have to understand the dark aspects of the film and have a bit of knowledge of vampires, werewolves etc. to appreciate the film. I thought it was incredibly done.
Geography all wrong. No plot; poor acting.
Other than a few nice action sequences, it really sucked. I`ve always been bugged by people who blame the graphics or appearances for a movie. It`s about the plot, right? Well the vampires were so incredibly terribly done that it almost ruined. Good job by Hugh Jackman though, and the girl is hot.
The Movie was fun and fake and not dissapointing.
The Matrix - doing business like Raiders of the Lost Ark - battling vampires in Transylvania.
There are people out there who can spell AND also love the movie. I, for one,loved the movie. I got to stare at Hugh Jackman for 2hrs and 20 mins. I`m not complaining. I`m seeing it Friday night with my boyfriend because we like the same kind of movies. That movie was great. The special effects and every thing. It was just so great. So if your the kind of person who hates horror movies, don`t go and see them and then try and get other people, who haven`t seen it to hate it before they have even seen it.
Absolutely hated it!!! What a stupid movie! What were you thinking Hugh?! We go to movies all the time so we see almost everything that comes out, so with all the others I have to compare this one to it sucked big time! What a waste of my time and money!
The movie was a dud. I spent my hard earned money for this? and the ending was so cheesy, like frankinstine going on a raft.. where`s he going, to hollywood? this realy sucked. SAVE UR $
It was great in every aspects. Huge and Kate were so match as a couple.!! : )
I actually enjoyed the movie very much. People who criticize it are missing the point that it is supposed to be similar to the classic horror movies, which would be considered `bad` by today`s standards. The movie is supposed to be slightly campy. That`s what makes it so much fun to watch. People who went into the theatre thinking this is going to be some super serious oscar-worthy drama and were let down should actually look at what the movie is supposed to represent. Stephen Sommers is known for making these type of movies. Besides that, Richard Roxburgh as Dracula gets the big thumbs up from me!
really really bad. Same director as the muumy`s and it shows. Blech
Not a great movie...although typical summer fare. I thought the dry humor banter was off set with the setting of the film in terms of time (year 1887). The dialogue was too `now` and that perhaps made the movie cheese. The special effects could`ve been A LOT better...but the only scene I admired was the "Count Dracula`s Ballroom" scene...beautifully executed.
Classic B horror movie. Crazy plot laking in plausability, wacky sidekick, stoic hero, tough girl heroine and some awesome monster battles. It`s worth admission if you are in the mood for fun and not art.
The nature of the main character, combined with the gothic settings, provided an adventure which comes across as the dark side of Indiana Jones.
I think it sucked and the director is a big idiot...
I think Van Helsing had flaws, but never the less it was a good movie. I don`t think Universal wantedan Occar winner, but a cool summer hit. It was what every summmer moviegoer wants
Loved the movie. I thought that the wry humour was refreshing and the characters were extremely entertaining... Count Dracula especially. The music was epic and the action quick and intense. Excellent computer effects and the pace of the movie was perfect. The end of the movie was a bit quick though.
Well it had all the promise of being a great action yarn, it had a good hero, a good villian/s and a good setting. But on execution the film tried to hit the masses, be alot of things to a lot of people. This is where it went wrong, The animated version voiced by Jackman is in the right media for this type of content. Stephen Sommers did this movie as a tribute to the universal monsters of old. Personally Peter Cushing was a better vampire hunter in his day -See Dracula AD 1972 The whole idea of Van Helsing is a man who has knowledge of the occult and dedicates his life to the erradication of evil by brains and brawn. Hugh Jackman was
Notice how everyone who thought this movie was terrible, all were too technical and practical about it. Lighten up! This movie is supposed to be fun! I don`t see you losers who complain about bad movies making any better ones.
The sound effect was so great! The setting was ok. It worths every penny to see that movie!! Four stars rating!!!!!!
