I thoug it was ok but not as good or even close to UNDERWORLD, VH was to comic book like and fake for me, UW was way better movie.
Well, I liked it, there were a lot of references to other sci fi movies rolled into this one. So this was interesting. I also noted how the monster was treated more like Mary Shelley's book. The the twist about who Van really was. Pretty entertaining all in all.
Underworld was better. Van helsing was almost as good, the "Friar" was hillarious, I think that the Dracula "beast" was extremely lame, and detracted from the movie in a big way. Cartoonish is the word I'm looking for...
I did like the vampresses. Very cool.
Selene is a better vampire chick anyway.
I felt that I was being hit by every cheesy Sci Fi movie ever made...aand some of the good ones too, andwas exhausted when the whole thing finally ended. They really did not leave anything to explore in a sequel because they shoved it all into one movie. All in all, I really liked it...especially the costuming and Huge Jackman....rrrrrrrrr
