Van Helsing (2004)

Legendary monster hunter Van Helsing (Hugh Jackman) is sent to mysterious Transylvania. From here the story really picks up into a bold retelling of the Bram Stoker and Hammer Films version of Van Helsing. Van Helsing is a younger character who physically battles every monster he comes across. In the horror film, his main adversary is Count Dracula but there is also a werewolf, Frankenstein’s monster, the three vampire brides and hordes of vampire bats who are actually the spawn of Dracula. Dracula’s spawn are born dead so Dracula needs to find out how Frankensteins monster was reanimated so he can bring his spawn to life. Then there is the part about the feud between Van Helsing, also known as Gabriel now, and Count Dracula that stretches way beyond the scope of the films time.

Van Helsing was an extremely large movie in depth that director Stephen Sommers took on. The graphics are astounding for this time and a treat to see. But, it all comes down to that there was just so many characters to introduce and so many plot elements. I really love what was done here and think that it was still pulled off pretty well considering this could have been an easy trilogy. I enjoyed watching Van Helsing and periodically watch it again.

Synopsis:

Van Helsing is in the world to rid all evil, even if not everyone agrees with him. The Vatican sends the monster hunter and his ally, Carl, to Transylvania. They have been sent to this land to stop the powerful Count Dracula. Whilst there they join forces with a Gypsy Princess called Anna Valerious, who is determined to end an ancient curse on her family by destroying the vampire. They just don't know how!
