Plot: Van Helsing is the greatest monster hunter, relied on by the church and both loved and hated by those he protects. Working by his own rules, no monster is safe from him and in his wake he leaves a trail of false murder accusations.
But his greatest challenge comes when he is summoned to Transylvania to battle the undying vampire Dracula. As it turns out, it is not the first time Dracula and Van Helsing have battled, and if Van Helsing is to win this fight, he needs to come up with new tactics.
Verdict: Great graphics and a simple plot. This movie falls short of expectations, but still manages to thrill.
