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.

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.

Flickering Myth

It doesn't matter if the rumors of Universal wanting a cinematic universe based on their mythological horror monsters is true or not, this movie killed whatever chance that had of happening.

James Berardinelli

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.

It's the whole "family man" thing that makes this film such a strange ride.

If you can selectively ignore this litany of inanity, you may find some substantial earthy pleasures in "Dracula Untold."

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.

This is essentially Evans's vehicle. His version of Dracula is action-oriented rather than horrifying and creepy. And keeping that in mind, he manages, in most parts, to get his teeth into the substance of Count Dracula's legend convincingly enough.

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

The old monster was not always a monster, was not always old, and this reboot, seen through what seems like teen angst-y goggles, takes a look at that… More

I love all the old Universal Monster movies, and whenever a new one comes out I get excited, but usually end up disappointed. I wasn't too amped for this… More

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
