Gabriel Van Helsing (Hugh Jackman) 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 (Kate Beckinsale), 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 (Richard Roxburgh) has put a misshapen creature named Igor (Kevin J. O'Connor) under his spell, and, in turn, has forged an alliance with a hideous monster (Shuler Hensley) who was created by the misguided Dr. Victor Frankenstein (Samuel West). Adding to Anna's burden is her brother, Velkan (Will Kemp), a lycanthrope who becomes a bloodthirsty wolf under the light of the full moon. Van Helsing also co-stars Elena Anaya, Silvia Colloca, and Josie Maran as Dracula's vampire brides. Mark Deming, RoviRead Less

I love this movie. It is one of my alltime favorites. Hugh Jackman did a great job. It has humor and drama. I became a Hugh Jackman fan after seeing this movie.

a hugh bore
I really thought this movie was going to be good. I like Hugh Jackman quite a bit, but this seriously was an incredible bore. 2 hours and 12 minutes of really forced acting. The only really good point about this movie is the monk...he´s quite funny! The actors didn´t seem to fit together for the movie. It seemed to go in many different directions for the first hour until the real plot of going after Dracula came together. The entire beginning (fighting different monsters) could´ve been erased. It took place in 1887/8 and the machines were quite high tech. They tried to play it off as the smart monks being able to invent things, but it was very unreal. Van Helsing is not a movie I would recommend unless you´d prefer to mute and slow fast-forward so that you can make up your own dialogue!
