I rented this from RedBox.
The inevitable follow up to the first two films I guess. It's not a bad movie, but it hits every cliched beat a sequel can it seems.
I rented this movie to watch with my 4 year old son, and it held his attention very well. But that's pretty much to be expected and this movie seems to be for a younger audience than the first two films.
Again, it wasn't a bad movie, but it was very very predictable. I figured out the twists of the romantic interest and who the captain really was even before she was on screen. There were no surprises.
What I really didn't like though was the ending of the movie in the "final battle "
The ending is that the ultimate weapon that destroyed Atlantis is a sheet of music... Which Van Helsing starts playing on his DJ booth. It's a rad techno beat that some how mind controls the Kracken into becoming a destructive blood hungry monster... How do they fight this? Johnny pulls out his DJ stand and using Drac's powers... plays more soothing and happy songs to break the mind control. With the first two not being strong enough until they finally use... Macarena... as the song to beat the "evil techno" that Van Helsing is playing. I am not joking.
The final conflict of the film turns into a DJ battle to mind control the Kracken. It's the stupidest thing I've ever seen.
Mistake Status: I caught 3 of them while watching with my son. I may revisit these films some day if I ever own them or get them for my kid. But no immediate plans to do so.
