In the plot of the movie, it says that it was set in the year 1887 in Transylvania. Dr Victor Frankenstein Took the help of his assistant Igor and Count Dracula to successfully create a monster. Dracula happens to be a vampire and therefore kills Frankenstein to make sure that he can use the creature for his own purposes. An angry mob later stormed the castle of Frankenstein, and the monster is known to have fled to a windmill with the dead creator. The crowd later burns down the windmill, and we think that they destroy the monster with it. The story starts there. Van Helsing, one year later kills Mr. Hyde after a great brawl in Notre Dame in Paris. When Helsing then suffers from amnesia and then slays email on behalf of the Vatican City. He does this to get redemption from his sins. The story starts there.
I like this film. It features a lot of eye candy, a very likeable hero, a spooky setting and also tonnes of monsters. Honestly, what’s not to like?
The director basically goes all out and loves to pack action sequences after action sequences. He doesn’t happen to be someone who makes automatic Oscar-winning movie, but he makes a just good, likeable, fun and also the special effects are respectable. The monsters here have been impeccably done and my favourite, I would say is wolfman. They are scary looking, and they also look like walls. I personally feel they should be depicted in this way. I would say that there are action films, and there are some action films that do not let you catch your breath; this one is the latter.
Just like any other movie, there are some cheesy scenes and also some cheesy lines of dialogue. I believe they can be dismissed because the script isn’t bad at all. There are some very memorable lines and also somebody loveable scenes in this movie.
All I can say is that I enjoyed the film and unlike some reviewers, I do believe that a lot of people enjoyed it. It did kill at the box office. I feel that you Jackman happens to be one of my favourite parts of the movie, and he is amazing in everything; therefore, I am not surprised.
