This score isn't so bad, yet it isn't so good either. The themes are overly repetitive and aren't complex. The main theme is yet efficient, representing a dark hero, just like batman. The Transylvania theme is powerful, rapid, and expresses more than well the action in the movie. The guitar has been very well used in that theme.
In overall, it remains an average quality soundtrack, much like Hellboy and other big dumb action movie scores. It does remind Danny Elfman's style, and much of the themes reminds of the original Batman score put on steroids. I better like Batman, it was more well conceived, and the pain is more noticeable, while Van Helsing's seems a bit fake.
