All around well done. Plenty of "monster" mythos covered in a fun way. Movie is listed as Horror and though the genre may be appropriate it is not really a horror movie in any kind of typical sense. Perhaps: Adventure/Fantasy?

I have quite a few horror, science fiction, and monster movies in my collection. But none of them have as many well know monster as this one in one film. So!!! LADIES AND GENTLEMEN WATCH THIS MOVIE ON YOUR HOMETHEATER!!!!! This movie is the perfect popcorn film filled with action!! The sound effects are definately "sound freak approved" as my whole system played convinsing sound effects that kept me and my friend glued to the screen. I especially liked the female vampires that were beautiful and Dracula was cool. But all the monsters were very good. And let's not forget the Werewolf, who looked good even though you could tell it was computer generated. And it had scenes which had my friend grabbing my arm a few times. I still have the marks to prove it. I'm keeping this film in my collection. My friend and i give this movie 4 and a half stars. For good visual effects, good sound effects, and a decent story. 2 Gyro's with plenty of white sauce and plenty of napkins served with Arizona iced tea.

This movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. Not too bad---good performance.

It was an ok movie. The CG (computer graphics) was great but the plot was forgettable.

"He's the first one to kill a vampire in over a hundred years. I'd say that's earned him a drink."

The greatest monster hunter of them all has his work cut out for him as he tracks down three deadly foes in this action-adventure saga. Gabriel Van Helsing is a man who has dedicated his life to battling evil forces who exist outside the bounds of nature; Van Helsing's work has not always made him friends, and a false accusation of murder still trails him. But when he's summoned to Transylvania at the behest of Anna Valerious, whose family has been fighting supernatural beings for generations, Van Helsing wastes no time answering her call. There, Van Helsing discovers that the undying vampire Count Dracula has put a misshapen creature named Igor under his spell, and, in turn, has forged an alliance with a hideous monster who was created by the misguided Dr. Victor Frankenstein. Adding to Anna's burden is her brother, Velkan, a lycanthrope who becomes a bloodthirsty wolf under the light of the full moon.
