Van Helsing is from start to finish nothing more than an overly long Saturday morning cartoon. It is fun and forgiveable at first, offering visions of Dracula, Frankenstein, and Mr. Hyde. Then, it takes us to Transylvania on the hunt for Dracula, werewolves, and bizarre incubating baby vampires that need the focused lightning from Frankenstein to both hatch and live. Last, it forgets to end. Many times. More than two hours of this is simply intolerable, though the first thirty minutes is a blast.
