Van Helsing — the iconic character, starting with 2004. And what if "van" means "Vanessa"?

The idea of the story I like it. Postapokalipsis, which is combined with a history of the daughters of the van Helsing. The problem is that interested only the first two of the series. Further, the narrative becomes very dreary and boring. Yes, nice shot, expensive. To choose colors. But no more.

The characters are completely uninteresting. All except Vanessa — cardboard. Moreover, someone always hysteria, swearing, yelling that annoys. The soundtrack in the series, simply no, although he could add voltage. According to as you browse, only, more and make the impossibility of what is happening.

Actors. To Kelly Overton no questions asked. She — ideal for the role of Vanessa. Rukia Bernard can also play a tree. Jonathan Scarfe as not impressed. Others are also strong nothing shown. Bad, very bad.

The series is absolutely not met my expectations. I recommend to see a maximum of three series of information.

I started to watch this series frankly with boredom and the desire to see something new the vampire theme. So and found it is a creation.

Advantages of the series enough, here well developed characters, a more-less coherent story, which all sometimes bogged down in pretentious dialogues or speeches of Glabados. Convincing places the Apocalypse. The events of the series pull, but not so artificially, that is annoying, say so slow account. In any case, the show sucked and now safely inspect the third season.

Now on to the cons. Perhaps the main drawback characterizing and color reviews, and header — this is the main character. Vanessa van Helsing long PRA the great great the van Helsing, the hunter on vampires. A fresh look, nothing to say. So that lady strong brave, plays well and will always come to the rescue of his friends! If required the plot directly. Otherwise it and space is not will move. Literally: there is a scene in which she pathetic screams in captivity that any word say work on villains until her friends will find in a safe place not bring it to have seen with my own eyes! And already in half a minute he forgets about the completely, willingly cooperates and all goes a little pokemarit.

But the problem is it not in it. She absolutely not think about the consequences of their actions, she just creates crap, with glowing eyes and a bold blush on the cheeks, not thinking what is going minutes. Which, if you think about it, most of the extras cut packs and guilty it or indirectly, that is Vanessa. It so rushes in eyes repels that interest series not so is especially great, it is on the decline. But the Directors so consider the third season in a row the Main character grows dull on eyes.

By the way, people did not seem in a series. I know, vampires, Apocalypse, blah blah blah blah, but people where?) street and fields are empty, reservations vampires cells sit three and a half anonymous. Yeah and the army of the vampire on the General background in groups of more than ten people do not going. And I have to believe that capture the whole world?) who, these Hamming crippled?)

In General you can look, but background with no expectations. Night brighten able, and more does not apply.

As some have already written a review, I long time no decided to watch the show. Not because of the rating (it I tend not to), and from behind the subjects. Vampire passions and the figure of the classical Abraham van Helsing I do not impressive. However, as you begin to watch and survived the first season (which is really boring), I was pleasantly surprised and rewarded: the series quickly became one of favorite, another series which begin to wait with anticipation. So what it cracked me up?

So, the idea to mix the two of the genre (and the plot develops vampiroangelico here type logic in Montreal) was very successful. It was the first hook hooked my interest fans of "the Walking". This mixture is allowed to neutralize (or at least severely weaken) the romantic-mystical veil associated with the vampire theme; add realism and rigidity and also opened new opportunities for the plot moves.

Second, a fairly convincing atmosphere and attention to detail helped to immerse yourself in action to empathize with the characters. Minimal music, which many here are added to the disadvantages, on my opinion is a major advantage. As thought of LIUs buñuel, Directors use music to achieve the effect, which is not been able to achieve cinematic means. Here the soundtrack is often not needed because the atmosphere creates the action and visuals. It also, the music in the end of each episode (especially in the first season) is just gorgeous (not just for themselves, and combination of video) gives an additional, ironic meaning.

Thirdly, the characters. Not all of them immediately disclosed, but to the middle of the second season you realize all their places. The main characters are well written, well played by the actors (Yes, including Doc — the game perfectly conveys the nature of the character), and among the secondary characters are very colorful figure with a lot of potential. Almost immediately appear "catchy" heroes for the fate of which is interesting to watch that are intriguing.

Fourth, this series is no issues passes the bechdel test (aka the Bechdel test, who knows — read). And at once, with the first series, and not then disappointing. I it to that there are a large number of completely diverse characters, like women's and men's and therefore, the audience of different queries will find anything to enjoy. Although, I must admit, maybe too many characters, and this causes a feeling of congestion and some confusion. However, in the format of the series, as I think this is acceptable.

Fifth, it's a decent balance between action and psycho-drama, adventure and reflection. In the first season, however, with interpersonal float going too far, but in the light of subsequent events, again, almost all justified.

And finally, Sixthly, an interesting plot with unexpected twists and turns (especially in the second and third seasons). Perhaps, there's not enough of something where logical connections and there is some looseness, but, on my opinion, so even better, because it stimulates the audience's imagination and leaves room for maneuver in the future.

Summing up, I want to say that, despite its shortcomings (of which I write was, because they are too typical for the series in this format), this is no doubt, the original and exciting project, which I hope will end more soon. It I want to watch, I want to discuss. So I put
