We do not care about anything or anyone, we just thrill to the next special effect.

The exteriors are fantastic, the castles mega-looming, and there's a beautiful -- if fanciful -- masqued ball which shows off to perfection the costumes contrived by Gabriella Pescucci.

If Van Helsing was meant to be a Saturday afternoon matinee fodder, it is both too ponderous to be fun and too silly to be scary.

For me, Stephen Sommers falls in the same category as Renny Harlin. He's one of the best hacks in the business.

A chaotic blur of recycled archetypes from classic horror flicks, action sequences unbound by laws of gravity and physics, and CGI special effects that somehow manage to appear ridiculously expensive and unconvincingly obvious all at once.
May 16, 2011
The already-lousy House of Frankenstein as done up by a filmmaker whose idea of style is to make things as loud and busy as possible... A screaming, noisy, overedited mess of a movie.

This is one vampire movie with bite.

A special effects-laden piece of trash...
August 5, 2007
In a blood-thirsty, dead-three-centuries sort of way, it's perfectly charming.

July 25, 2007
An overamped action movie in which the legendary monsters are interchangeable with any other brutish CGI beasts.

Like the three monsters at the center of the film, Van Helsing is a howling dog, it needs a brain, and indeed, it bites.

Writer and director Stephen Sommers is less interested in developing the characters and more interested in smashing them into things.

December 28, 2004
... even in the name of high adventure, the end result was just too silly and unbelievable to accept or enjoy.

The plotting is dull and ... the action scenes quickly grow tiresome.

November 14, 2004
Silly, preposterous, poorly directed and badly acted.

A fun ride of a movie, as long as you're willing not to take it too seriously.

If you were raised on action-packed computer games, this movie is from Sega heaven.

Too bad [Stephen Sommers'] complete lack of restraint turned this at-first-promising flick into a jarring and prolonged audio-visual wank fest.

August 5, 2004
allows for the digital manipulation of virtually everything on screen, turning the movie into a frenetic, attention-deficit cartoon that still manages to look kinda cheap

The horror flick, at its height, was a lyrical caressing of our fears; by the end of this nonsense, you fear for the well-being of the genre. 'It's dead!'
