Consensus: Neither awful enough to suck nor sharp enough to bite, Dracula Untold misses the point of its iconic character's deathless appeal.

Richard Corliss
TIME Magazine

[Evans] carries Untold by admirably fulfilling the two essential functions of a period-movie hero: to enunciate comic-book dialogue with Shakespearean authority and to look great with his shirt off.

A generic vampire tale in the Underworld vein that comes closer to the infamous Van Helsing than a memorable re-interpretation of a legendary monster.

Toothless, poorly scripted and drowning in an overload of pointless CGI, Dracula Untold just plain sucks, both as a medieval epic and as the supposed launching pad for a new generation of movie monsters.

Most of the time, I found myself feeling like I was waiting for a turn with the gaming controls.

The movie is the latest multiplex filler to co-opt a classic tale only to drown it in computer-generated murk. Even the title has the ring of something created by committee.

"Dracula Untold" is the story of how one man tried to save his homeland from an invading army. It's not about Bela Lugosi feasting on tender white necks in polite society. If you can get past this, then you might enjoy this origins story.

The idea is to humanize one of the most fearful monsters in the Western crypt. But Dracula Untold goes way overboard, past domestication and into canonization.

It's not so much untold as rewritten - if not by J.R.R. Tolkien than by some clever 12-year-old overstimulated by "The Lord of the Rings."

Dracula Untold is agreeably silly at points, but that hardly covers for the fact that much of the film's action is visually incomprehensible.

The movie previously called 'Dracula: Year Zero' which is no better frankly, I'm guessing the untold means there will be more. Seeing as… More

One problem that Dracula Untold faces with its portrayal of vampires is that it doesn't really create an interesting mythology for these creatures.… More

As a horror flick, this Dracula is toothless, earning two stars at best. The strange absence of blood from a vampire/war film renders the experience anemic. I… More

Origin stories only serve to demystify famous characters and they rarely afford us the opportunity for depth which is why the vapid 'Dracula Untold'… More
