Guest ScirosDarkblade Posted April 14, 2004 Share Posted April 14, 2004 I'm gonna go see this film because I think Hugh Jackman is totally awesome and is the next Harrison Ford (I apologize to Harrison Ford for even suggesting that he is replaceable, because he is not, but Jackman is as close as it'll get nevertheless). But the director is the guy who did the Mummy and Mummy Returns films, and as fun as they were, they were STUPID AS HELL. Plot holes all over the place, inconsistencies that completely killed characterization, piss-poor special effects, etc. I enjoyed the Mummy films, but they're not real quality. So I don't expect Van Helsing to be much more than a "Hugh Jackman: Monster Smasher" flick, but I do expect an enjoyable film. Another concern I have is Kate Beckinsale's horrendous "Romanian" accent. Holy crap is it bad; it's different in every scene they show in the trailers. I hope it won't ruin the film as much as the seemingly shoddy special effects will. Anyway, I'm still excited about it. Jackman is just really cool and Beckinsale is hot. I'm watching it for the actors, I guess. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
