I went to see Van Helsing against my better judegment. I expected very little from the trailers I had seen, and amazingly the film was even worse than I had anticipated. It was a constant assault on my intelligence, I feel violated by the dumbed-downess of the entire film. Worse than The Hulk? Maybe so. But just how you can take a license like Van Helsing and fail to make a decent action film I will never know. If I hadn’t had a lift to Basingstoke I would have walked out of the cinema within 30 minutes of this travesty.
