Hugh Jackman stars as the sexiest Van Helsing to ever hit the screen. Even more impressive... is his larger than life screen presence and physicality that keeps his character from becoming overshadowed by the incredible amount of CGI and monster effects

If you're prepared to overlook the canon-messing, plus the odd bit of crap dialogue or dodgy CGI, then Van Helsing is surprisingly enjoyable, with several impressive action set pieces.

Van Helsing is the epitome of an escapist movie - the kind that used to be shown on Saturday afternoon. But now, thanks to massive budgets and big-name stars, Saturday comes seven days a week.

The results here are eye-dazzling, indeed, but undermined by the screenplay, a comic-book containing every cliche as well as every monster in the genre except Bigfoot and the Abominable Dr. Phibes.

Thirteen year old boys will love it. Its bound to make lots of money on its opening weekend, and is open-ended enough for a sequel.

I think Van Helsing is worth seeing on the big screen, if nothing else than for the audience reaction and to see the action and effects in the theater.

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.

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

This is one vampire movie with bite.

In a blood-thirsty, dead-three-centuries sort of way, it's perfectly charming.

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

With Sommers' work it's hard to know where the fan stops and the director starts.

Not every summer blockbuster needs to be a classic, so Van Helsing [shout it out!] gets a decent grade for goofy, ghoulish fun.
June 16, 2004
The movie's too imaginatively crafted to be boring, and too conceptually insane to be awful.

The action is nonstop much like in the Mummy films and comes to an exciting finale.
May 14, 2004
Every criticism you may have heard about the film is at least somewhat true -- especially Kate Beckinsale's performance, a career-worst -- but doesn't negate the fun factor.

It's "Hellboy" with a better pace, but a less likeable, slightly less-human character.
May 12, 2004
It's an Event Movie, in every sense; the film has all the subtlety of a runaway train hurtling down the Matterhorn, but as entertaining junk I did find it enjoyable.

Gustará más a niños y jóvenes que a quienes aspiren al corte clásico o la épica histórica.

Van Helsing is unapologetically nothing more than a monster movie, and it's a good one at that.
