Blood: The Last Vampire (2009)

This is a film that tries to build its own world and find its own style. shoddy CGI aside, the film does not look to bad; but a convoluted plot, and story-telling which keeps too many things in the dark, hurt this film.

Van Helsing (2004)

Kate Beckinsale moonlighting in a non-Underworld blockbuster and Hugh Jackman taking time off from playing Wolverine – casting-wise, the film certainly didn’t do anything wrong.

If you are looking for a good comedy, you should stay far away from this film. […]

It is neither particularly good nor particularly bad. But at least there are some memorable lines and scenes – things this franchise generally has very little of. […]
