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

[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.

...another misguided contemporary update of a classic character.

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.

Vlad's a super-monster. The plot gets jittery. Vlad's relationship with his sweet, fair, lovely wife remains sweetly, fairly, lovingly vapid. And into the 15th-century setting is tossed the modern trope of the father who'll do anything for his family.

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."

This reboot is a bloodless shell of the original Bram Stoker tale.

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

Vlad: I'm the thing men fear. Not a ghost, something else. Dracula Untold is 92 minutes long. There are likely just over 92 films about the character… More

The original "Dracula" film from 1931 is a classic horror/monster flick in every sense of the word, and after this years attempt at rebooting… More
Film Crazy
A gothic style drama that has little to no suspense and borders on boredom! A story of Dracula that should have been left alone!
