10/10: Double-O Van Helsing, Superhero...
Friday, March 11, 2005

Double-O Van Helsing, Superhero First a word of warning. There are a number of people who would be best advised to avoid Van Helsing. If you dislike cgi, if you're a purist, if you're looking for something "realistic", or if you're looking for a slower-moving, understated film that's a deep character study, you'll more than likely hate this film.Set around the turn of the 20th Century, Van Helsing features the titular hero (Hugh Jackman) taking a break from his usual "monster slayer" activities, which are commissioned by the Catholic Church, to pursue a grand plot initiated by Dracula (Richard Roxburg) involving the Frankenstein Monster (Shuler Hensley), the Wolf Man (Will Kemp), and the two last surviving members of a Transylvanian family that has long been battling the vampire.Van Helsing is a fast-paced, computer graphics-laden horror/adventure/fantasy film wherein Universal re-imagines its core stable of classic horror characters...

8/10: Rip roaring homage to classics...
Friday, May 7, 2004

Rip roaring homage to classics This is a very "Stephen Sommers" film, were you not to know it is the same director as the Mummy you would guess it within 20 minutes. However it should be pointed out that this is not a bad thing at all. The movie is a rip roaring adventure with some wonderful camp humour and great special effects. The plot consists of Van Helsing (Hugh Jackman) being part of a special order of the Vatican to kill all unhuman / evil creatures, so amazingly he is sent of to Transylvania where he is to kill Dracula, the sub plot being that Anna Valerious (Kate Beckinsale) is the last in the line of a family who's mission for centuries has been to kill Dracula themselves. If Anna dies before Dracula, being the last in the line will condemn the whole family to eternal damnation.While the plot isn't the strongest in the world, it actually...

7/10: Silly, lacking in plot, but...

Silly, lacking in plot, but good fun It's big, it's dumb, it's cheesy as hell, but I found it to be enormous fun. This was made to be a roller-coaster ride and by that token it should be judged.Actually after the opening pastiche of the Boris Karloff Frankenstein movie, I thought this had the potential to be a 5 star movie. It was very atmospheric and had me hooked. However the film never really captures any sense of magic from there onwards.The main body of the movie does go on a bit, and it could have done with some attempt to create engaging characters. Plot and story are not always necessary for fun movies, but you do need characters with a level of interest to capture the mind, otherwise you tend to find yourself not giving a s**t. I felt Van Helsing did verge into this territory, but for the most part it...

8/10: It may have been corny...
Wednesday, January 5, 2005

It may have been corny, it may have have overused its CGI. But, hell, I loved it anyway! Yeah, I know this isn't a masterpiece of cinema and I can already tell half this nation's populace hates it despite a good run at the box office last summer. But still I went into this movie just looking for a good time (that and am a huge fan of old school monster films) and thats what I got. For the uptight and so called expert critics, let me spell it out for you: ITS A POPCORN MOVIE! OF COURSE EVERYTHING GOING TO BLOWN UP TO THE MAX AND GO OVER THE TOP! IF YOU CAN'T UNDERSTAND THIS, THEN DON'T CLAIM YOU DO AND BASH A FILM BECAUSE OF IT! *Ahem* alright on to my review.Plot: Helsing and his assistant, a frair named Carl, are sent to Translvaynia to protect the last of a gypsy family from...

7/10: Van Helsing fights Dracula with...
Sunday, August 2, 2015

Van Helsing fights Dracula with a little help from Frankenstein's monster! As this film opens Dr. Frankenstein has just finished his famous creation when a hoard of torch carrying villagers attack his castle. His patron, one Count Dracula, isn't too concerned; he just wants the creature for his own nefarious purposes and has no further need of the doctor. On the other side of Europe monster hunter Gabriel Van Helsing has been summoned to the Vatican; here he is told to head to Transylvania and help the last remaining members of the Valerious in their generations old battle against Dracula. Upon arrival he quickly finds himself helping protect a village from an attack by Dracula's three brides. After this battle he teams up with Anna Valerious (and later Frankenstein's monster) for a battle that will see them fighting werewolves, vampires assorted monsters before a final confrontation with Dracula himself!If you are looking for a scary...
