For a movie I had no intention of watching in the theater, this was a pretty good movie. The legendary monster hunter Van Helsing (Jackman) must go to Transylvania to fight Dracula and help Anna (Beckinsale), who’s family can not enter heaven until Dracula is dead (I suppose that would be the best word to use).
Along with appearances by Mr. Hyde (of Dr. Jackyl and Mr. Hyde fame), the Wolf Man, and Frankenstein’s monster, it’s a virtual who’s who of the monster world, complete with an ugly little bastard named Egor.
Even if you don’t like the movie, you’ll at least get to see Kate Beckinsale in tight pants, and that’s never a bad thing.
Van Helsing gets a three out of five: GOOD.
