Dreadful action adventure about a notorious monster hunter (Hugh Jackman) sent to Transylvania by a secret Vatican agency and charged with helping a local vampire slayer (Kate Beckinsale) rid the world of Count Dracula (Richard Roxburgh) and other fiendish creatures including werewolves and Frankenstein's monster (Shuler Hensley). Despite stylishly gothic atmospherics, this long, loud and ludicrous monster mash, directed by Stephen Sommers, amounts to little more than overwrought special-effects sequences without any thought given to story -- let alone characters to sink your teeth into. Incessant comic-book violence, an implied sexual encounter, some innuendo and frightening images. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
