Dracula Untold

Drama-fantasy that combines the mythology of Dracula with the true story of a 15th century Romanian Prince - Vlad the Impaler. With his kingdom under threat from Sultan Mehmed II, who demands 1,000 men for his army including the ruler's son, Transylvanian prince Vlad III Țepeș (Luke Evans, Immortals) searches for mystical power to defeat the Sultan. This power comes at a price: transformation into the legendary Dracula.

If Dracula Untold is meant to be the first one out of the gate for the planned rebooting of the Universal Monsters franchise, I for one am not going to be clamouring for more. Set in the 15th Century, it’s a stodgy, visually drab, instantly forgettable reworking of Bram Stoker’s novel in the action-centred Underworld/I, Frankenstein vein, with Fast and Furious 6 villain Luke Evans starring as Drac, a Transylvanian prince who makes a pact with a cave-dwelling demon (Charles Dance) for some handy dark magic to protect his family and people against the evil clutches of Turk Sultan Mehmed II (Dominic Cooper).

Sometimes I watch a movie just to be entertained.

There have been some Dracula (Bram Stoker's) movies over the years, and they have been presented in different story angles. I like the one with Gary Oldman, Keanu Reeves and Winona Ryder. I also like this one of Luke Evans, a different flavour to the others which focused more on circumstances that made him the Dracula that people know. It's not too heavy....

Dracula Untold

Stick with Francis Ford Coppola's 1992 film. This forgettable untold Dracula origin story is rather dull. The Transylvanian prince Vlad Tepes, played by Fast & Furious 6 villain and Hobbit star Luke Evans, is threatened by Mehmed the Conqueror, who demands 1000 boys to join his army, including Vlad's son. Vlad makes a deal with Caligula, an ancient demon...

What's the saddest part...

Definitely the ending, because it suggests that this crap dares to have a sequel....

Dull origin story about history's most famous vampire suggests some tales are indeed best left untold.

This cursory reboot adopts the mirth-free mythology tactic beloved of modern superhero ventures.

Suggests someone must have looked at every previous version of the material and thought: "You know what? Dracula needs to be more likeable".

You’d be hard pressed to identify with any previous version of Dracula.

This misconceived project mainly signals a need to go back to the drawing board.

Armour-clanging, cloak-swishing tosh with okay battles, terrible dialogue and sadly little horror or heroism.
