      Van Helsing was a movie that flopped at the box office for all the wrong reasons. A monster movie that combined the classical stories of Doctor Frankenstein, the Wolfman, Count Dracula, and Van Helsing, using plenty of CGI and nonstop action.

      Unfortunately, in 2004 CGI was still new and many of the people who went to see Van Helsing were purists or realists, and this take


      on the monster classics was nowhere near the original stories.

      The old stories of Dracula or Frankenstein were more realistic with a large emphasis on character development and humanizing the supposed monsters.

      Van Helsing, on the other hand, was a purely fantastical action movie take on the monster scene.

      For those who are not purists or realists, Van Helsing is an excellent monster fantasy movie with plenty ...


      • of action to keep the intensity flowing from beginning to end.

        The graphics can be a bit overwhelmingly intense, but they are beautiful and really draw viewers into the action.

        Scenes are very fast paced and the quick movements, exotic locations, and expert CGI manipulation creates a visual environment that rivals most of the other movies available when Van Helsing was made, and continues to aesthetically

        rival movies that are currently being developed.

        Aesthetics are not everything in the world of Hollywood, and this movie develops on more than just that.

        The action scenes are just as intense as the CGI, but the rest of the movie is fairly shallow, character development and back story are lackluster compared to the pure adrenaline rush of the action and aesthetic beauty of the CGI.
