Far too much of the film feels like drudgery.

Expect big box-office numbers and a merchandising blitz from Van Helsing -- just don't expect a story or any semblance of logic.

Van Helsing is the worst would-be summer blockbuster since Battlefield Earth.

Pure eye candy, and nothing else.

disjointed action thrillride that resembles what you'd get if you inserted crack cocaine into your PlayStation 2

The Ugly, The Bad, and The Good... totally in that order.

Big, dumb action flick makes the undead, unearthly and unholy look unimpressive, unintelligent and unexciting.

Churned hot off the assembly line, it's an ugly and disposable piece of ultra-expensive formula product that exists solely to kick-start a new revenue stream.

This is one of the dopiest movies of the year.

Little more than a series of not-always-good special effects strung together.

Suspenseless, charmless, and humorless. A hybrid that manages to stitch together only the loosest frameworks of their imagination, creativity, or wit.

It may take cattle prods ... to keep most people from walking out of this explosively awful monster mash.

Perhaps the loudest summer film of all time, Van Helsing's apt to provide more migraines than nightmares.

This is a massively silly film, silliness on a grand scale, so silly and over-the-top yet simultaneously so emotionally flat and even dull.

There's never a dull moment, but there's also never a moment. It never stops. It's a perpetual-motion machine.

It looks absolutely amazing, but by the film's middle, we realize it's pretty hollow.

It's like celebrating James Joyce with a monster-truck rally.
