It looks great oddly enough. I will enjoy this film so much. ^^ I think the idea is pretty nifty and the style is a little diffrent then the traditional gothic image you get with most films. It kind of reminds me of Brother Hood of the Wolf meets Interview with Vampire and Underworld (even I hated that movie ) But anyway it looks half decent.
I'll probably hook into it sometime this weekend. I've been wanting to see this since I knew of it's existence. The Universal Monsters have always been a favorite of mine. Read on Creature Corner that originally The Creature From The Black Lagoon was supposed to be represented. At the last minute, they decided not to include him. If there is a sequel, there is a STRONG possibility that the Gill Man will be present. I hope so, he is, and will remain one of my favorite monsters of all time.
Well I saw Van Helsing last night at a mindnight showing and I have to say it is one hell of a fun movie. If you do not like CGI stay home! The things the creatures do in this film could not have been done with people in suits...that being said the ...the Werewolf in this film is freakin awesome! He is like a Berni Wrightson drawing come to life! Dracula's Brides in there fully transformed flying mode kick ass too, as Does Bat Dracula himself. The one creature that is a makeup effect for the most part is Frankenstein's Monster and he is one very well done makeup effect at that! And I have to say Kate Beckinsale is just plain flat out hot in this movie...
Mr. Hyde is one of the highlights of the film by the way ...one of the best CGI characters I have ever seen. Van Helsing himself is a very cool rough and tumble character and Hugh Jackman plays the part very well...he reminded me of Vampire Hunter D quite a bit...which is a good thing! okay I will shut up now...go see this movie .
Van Helsing was great. Angsty Dracula, Smart Frankenstein's Monster and Howling Werewolf. Great movie... The bad reviews is because people think movies have to be one way and that is it. I have noticed that with people reviewing films. I loved it.
