not THAT bad
3 January 2006 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

This is a good piece of anime. It's short and it contains a lot of nonstop action, awesome animation, and reasonably good dialog. Hugh Jackman did a wonderful job in lending his voice to the character Van Helsing. It explains the beginning in the Van Helsing movie.

I love it. It's better than sitting down and watching a long movie. Since this movie lasts only 33 minutes, it's definitely something to do when you have nothing to do. The plot isn't that complicated, so it doesn't require much concentration to unscramble the story.

Overall, this is an excellent prequel to the original Van Helsing movie.

I'll give this movie an 8/10 and a pat on the back.
