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.
April 29, 2009
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.
November 10, 2006
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.

... even in the name of high adventure, the end result was just too silly and unbelievable to accept or enjoy.
December 16, 2004
The plotting is dull and ... the action scenes quickly grow tiresome.
November 14, 2004
Silly, preposterous, poorly directed and badly acted.
November 2, 2004
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
August 1, 2004
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!'
July 20, 2004
'Si quiere verla, mejor espérese a que salga en DVD...y aún así creo de debería pensarlo.'
July 20, 2004
Stephen Sommers delivers stale effect-movie action, outdoing even his own worst efforts.
