    I saw just some scenes which where promising but I know that the film would be the money worth to go in cinema.

    Probably Troy is better? At least I hope so and didnt read to much critic so far...

    I know Troy is unrealistic and not time-oriented because the real fight if there was any was completely different, but the whole story is just mythology, European mythology and I just hope they made a good story out of it.

    Well i have seen that movie, it was entertaining even if it's not a masterpiece.. but i have failed to see one in the last years so why bother

    I really liked Dracula's wives.. i wouldn't mind immortality beside such hot babes
    By the way one of them is Italian


    "E tutti si scandalizzano quando sentono dire: quel tale tipo di mammifero o di uccello ormai è sparito dalla faccia della terra, non lo vedremo più; è una grave perdita. Certo, si tratta di gravissime perdite.
    Ma non sarebbe forse più grave se sparisse una comunità umana?? --Bruno Salvadori

    Seven pictures of northern European males and seven pictures of northern African males were presented randomly via a computer screen to 82 Italian female undergraduates of the University of Padua, Italy.
    Each picture depicted a full frontal face with a neutral facial expression. Participants were asked to classify each picture as either northern Italian or southern Italian.
    On average, the seven pictures depicting northern Europeans were classified as northern Italians 81% of the time. The seven pictures depicting northern Africans were classified as southern Italians 83%
    of the time.

    I saw it on Friday. I paid more attention to the spectacular scenery, rather then the actual fights. This makes me want to visit Transylvania even more. I'm sure that probably 90% of the audience thought that Transylvania is a non-exsistant, made-up manifestion of imagination. It's too bad that Western Literature puts this kind of fantasy forth (Dracula) and in turn they doubt all of the other real material put out.

    You must agree with me that the Scenery was just stunningly beautiful along with the crescendo involving a Spanish guitar in many of the soundtracks.

    I saw it yesterday. I want my money back. The special effects were cool & all, but Gawd what a lame movie. I wanted to leave half way through the movie, but my Mom wanted to stay!

    If you want to see a real impaler come here!
    And all my youth passed by sad-hearted,
    the joy of Spring was never mine;
    Autumn blows through me dread of parting,
    and my heart dreams and longs to die.

    - Nikolaus Lenau (1802-1850)

    Real misanthropes are not found in solitude, but in the world; since it is experience of life, and not philosophy, which produces real hatred of mankind.

    - Giacomo Leopardi (1798-1837)

    I do not actually like fantasy. I rather see films about real social issues.

    Nice cinematography and interesting story about the demon hunter. Kate Beckinsale was cute and reminded me of a special someone. The historical aspect is interesting, but very mixed up with fantasy. It was nice to see some about the Vatican and Budapest. Other than that not much to see.

    It could have been better. Some characters reminded me of "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" (2003).

    Damnit. I have been wanting to see this movie but everyone says it's garbage. I will still go see it through, Due to the fact that most movies people think are garbage I end up liking
    Just close your eyes...can you remember
    The generations not so long ago
    I feel the shameless urge that we must restore
    Our former king to his rightful throne
    And with me lords and maidens
    We wait for the chosen son's return

    I come alive
    It's a time for celebration
    Our will to restore
    Make our past become the futre once more

    Still he lives! 2000 years have passed
    And still we're yearning for his return
    We fulfill a wishful prohecy
    And so the chanting begins
    Hail Caesar...Hail Caesar...we render unto you
    What is still yours

    I like action films. This was OK. Not bad. Some intensity. Great special effects. Fun, if you just don't expect too much.

    I was looking forward to seeing it too... unfortunately, it seems that nowadays ( since 2001. ) it's required that a summer hit MUST be totally ridiculous. I mean, there have been awful films and awful-film-periods in the past, but this era takes the cake

    Somehow, a modern blockbuster must have absolutely NO redeeming value. One of the worst films I've seen, "Armageddon" was utterly ridiculous, but it was fun, had some fun characters, funny one-liners etc. but now, all films have began imitating the editing, sfx and music of Matrix/Charlie's Angels.
