I have seen what may be a perfect movie. Van Helsing should be shown in film schools as an object lesson; both in what not to ever do and in how to cram as many clichés into a two hour span as possible.
There is nothing good to say about this movie. I knew it was going to be bad when I went into the theatre (I was hoping for at least some good CGI and effects), but I had no idea it was going to be Battlefield Earth kind of bad. Really, you almost have to see this to appreciate the true atrociousness of this cinema piece. Don’t, but you know what I mean.
I would honestly expect a movie this bad to be a career killer for some of the people involved. Not Beckingsale, as this is the second bad vampire movie in which she has been involved in a row. But this may be the last we see of Jackman for a while (at least until X-Men 3).
If someone asks you to go and see this movie, they are not your friend. Watch time :24.
