The movie follows the adventures of Van Helsing, a character from Bram Stroker's Dracula. Unlike the book though, the character is a younger, handsome man. Heck, even the vampires are sexy. There's an interesting plot here about Dracula's attempt to breed a ton of little Draculas, but it's mostly lost in the movie.
The movie seems to work as quickly as possible from one confirmation to the next, so we can enjoy some fight sequences. It actually mostly works too. It's enjoyable enough, the special effects are rather well done, and the overall feel of the movie is consistent, if not cheesy in a summer mega-film should be.
