I watch van helsing every time I see it on the guide. I think that is the most entertaining movie I have watched in years. Call me "old school" but I grew up watching vampire movies (Bela Lugosi), ware wolf movies, Frankenstein all seperately. But for this movie to contain all of my favorite oldies in one package is the best movie ever made. It's also a love story and the ending really touches my heart. I need to own a copy of this to watch whenever I want to see action and adventure. Thus is such a well put together film!!!! My hat off to this film, the cast-ans I love, love, love Hugh Jackman in this movie. Kate Beckensale is the best. All of the characters in this movie could not been put together better in anything else. This movie is awesome. I am a baby boomer, so all my old stuff in one gets 4 thumbs up!!!! Van Helsing is "my" movie!! If there's a 10 star rating, this movie gets 11. Thank you to the writer and producer of Van Helsing#
