With Van Helsing, Universal Pictures has decided to turn the famous vampire hunter into a superhero. This isn't the same vampire hunter who fought Bela Lugosi's Dracula or Christopher Lee's Dracula. Van Helsing has been turned into an action movie hero who brandishes an autoloading, multi-fire crossbow. He wields spinning saw blades that he uses to slice at the limbs of his foes. He's seemingly indestructible. And as the story unfolds, a plot development emerges that turns him into a true superman.
