    Van Helsing: THE BEST MOVIE EVER!!!!!!!!

    When i first saw the commericals for the coming of Van Helsing, i was freaked beyond my mind. I refused to see it. (Yet I was only 12, I have more knowldege now). But when i saw it, it was trapped in its AWSOMENESS!!! When my mom got it on DVD, i watched it so much that the DVD became really scratched and i had to get another one! This movie is the KING!!!!!!!!

    Okay but could have been better.

    'Van Helsing' is one of those films when everything is outstanding. Except the story, the story is more or less a rehash, a marketing tool for the monster movies of the 1930's. I must admit though, I like the werewolf design, but a werewolf is just not enough for this film. I am a big fan of Writter/Directors, because they don't wait for fate to take them. They MAKE their own fate, by making THEIR movies. But Stephen Sommers just has to go to writting school and learn about story telling. 'Van Helsing' has a good idea, but it's poorly written. When I watched,'Van Helsing', I saw an excellent production detail but no 'Quiet Time' to explain them. A 'Quiet Time' is usually when the characters are out of peril and discuss the plot. James Cameron did this DURING the action sequences in 'The Terminator' and 'T2:Judgement Day'. But 'Van Helsing' has very weak character devolpment and the action is non stop. Which gets boring after a long time of action. I felt like 'Van Helsing' could have gotten more critical acclaim and more money to beat it's 148 million dollar budget, if it could work better on it's characters and less on it's stunts and what I like to call, 'Playing with the Toys' phase. 'Playing with the Toys' phase is when you just want use props or visual effects or special effects just for the hell of it. If Stephen Sommers weins himself out of the phase, 'Van Helsing' could have been an outstanding film. But it's just a good one.
