Sure, it's daft, but it's also funny and exciting and kids will likely love it.

Horror classicists may be upset at [Sommers] tampering with monster mythologies, but everyone else will just be going along for the ride, and they'll have a terrific time.

An exciting horror spectacle that combines Frankenstein, Dracula and Biblical lore with elements of the James Bond series.

There's literally never a dull moment... The naysayers will argue that it's all calculated, and of course it is. That's why it works.

A fun, action-packed, highly interesting movie.
May 8, 2004
Disposable eye candy that entertains while it plays itself out but isn't worth much once it's over.
May 8, 2004
Sommers has turned out a capably assembled picture that delivers all the fun you could wish for in a modern monster flick.
May 7, 2004
A blend of Raiders of the Lost Ark and Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein, only without the Abbott and Costello.
May 7, 2004
If action and special effects make your day -- along with a ruggedly mysterious leading man -- Van Helsing may get you to bay at the moon, alongside the Wolf Man.

Van Helsing is more amusing and exciting than frightening.
May 7, 2004
The rare kind of movie where the badness just adds to the fun.
May 7, 2004
Yes, all of Sommers' vulgarian wrongheadedness is evident in Van Helsing, but this movie also possesses a film buff's respect for its frightening forebears.

No one's going to argue that Van Helsing is a great movie, but it's just the sort of loud, splashy, silly, summer fun flick we've come to expect.
May 7, 2004
Enjoying the overblown but well-intentioned Van Helsing requires the campy mind-set of that TV show, not the spooky gravity of classic monster flicks.
May 7, 2004
A relatively enjoyable jaunt.
May 7, 2004
Silly and spectacular, and fun.
May 7, 2004
The CGI fans are going to scrutinize the F/X but the average bear is just going to enjoy the show.
May 7, 2004
Van Helsing is an entertaining fiend-fest with excellent actors and some new twists on old stories.
May 7, 2004
You'll find yourself laughing at the horribly cheesy dialogue. But whatever, this popcorn flick is still tasty enough.
