Van Helsing

This is easily the worst movie of the last 5 years I have had the misfortune to watch. Unfortunately I was with other people and could not walk out of this sorry ass excuse for hollywood tripe.

Do yourself a favor, do not even rent this movie.

The only thing positive about paying the money to watch it is now I can tell everyone I know not to go.

Re: Van Helsing

That bad, huh?

Story seems interesting enough...vampires, werewolves, Frankenstien. Too much of a good thing?

Re: Van Helsing

Really?! Looks really cool by the trailers, but then they always do.

Is a paradigm worth 20 cents?

Re: Van Helsing

I went with a group of 6 people, ages 14 to around 50. Everyone agreed that they could not remember a recent movie as bad as it is.

Too much of a good thing? I wish. It was the WORST acting...that chick is completely uncoordinated in the action scenes...there's a scene where they're on a ship and I swear, you could do better in your bathtub for special effects. Awful awful movie.

Re: Van Helsing

Thanks for the warning LTL! One would have thought it was better, what with all of the typical hype (= bullshit).

Sorry you had to be our guinea pig .

Re: Van Helsing

Thanks for the post. Now I won't have to sit through it. I won't mention who wanted to see that movie.

Re: Van Helsing

Got pretty good reviews over here

Have to say that Kate Beckinsale could put her slippers under my bed anytime she likes.

Re: Van Helsing

I thought it was ok,special effects were good,little twist on the story made it different.I do recommend it for a matinee or rental.Entertaining for those that enjoy that genre.

Re: Van Helsing

I took my girlfriend and a couple of 11 year old kidlets to the movie. We all thought it was pretty decent.

Would you say that it is as bad or worse than The League Of Extraordinarily Bad Gentlemen? That was quite possibly the biggest turd I've ever seen in my life.

Re: Van Helsing

LOEG was way worse. Van Helsing rated as an "OK", but nothing great. Had some cool scenes, bu tin general, I think it really is a dvd flick.

You're f%#&king up my Chi...
