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.

Phil Villarreal
Arizona Daily Star
May 7, 2004
disjointed action thrillride that resembles what you'd get if you inserted crack cocaine into your PlayStation 2
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
David Foucher
EDGE Boston

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

May 6, 2004
Big, dumb action flick makes the undead, unearthly and unholy look unimpressive, unintelligent and unexciting.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
Scott Weinberg
May 7, 2004
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5

This is one of the dopiest movies of the year.
Chris Hewitt (St. Paul)
St. Paul Pioneer Press

Little more than a series of not-always-good special effects strung together.
| Original Score: 1/4
Todd Gilchrist

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.

Van Helsing desecrates the memory of our greatest movie monsters

Perhaps the loudest summer film of all time, Van Helsing's apt to provide more migraines than nightmares.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4

May 6, 2004
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.
Clint Morris
Film Threat
May 4, 2004
It looks absolutely amazing, but by the film's middle, we realize it's pretty hollow.
| Original Score: 2.5/5

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