dracula_untoldReviews for this film from our members:

  • [New – 5/21/15] | Dragan Antulov @ FAK [Croatian]
  • José Arce @ LaButaca.net [Spanish]
    • Excerpt: Universal resta un poco más de épica a su propio legado con esta peliculita que no tiene muy bien a qué agarrarse. Historia disparatada, producción irregular, poca permanencia en la memoria.
  • Nicholas Bell @ IONCINEMA.com
    • Excerpt: While its title will open it up to a countless number of snarky comments, perhaps now that we’ve reached the Untold region we don’t have to march on into the Retold territory.
  • Tim Brayton @ Antagony & Ecstasy
  • Kevin Carr @ 7M Pictures
    • Excerpt: Even if “Dracula Untold” isn’t the greatest version of the Dracula legend, I welcome it as a reboot of this shared universe from the 1940s.
  • Bill Clark @ From The Balcony
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: Director Gary Shore and screenwriters Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless meld history with mythology for an entertainingly cheesy period fantasy adventure cum origin film grounded by a committed performance by Luke Evans as Lord Impaler.
  • Jim Dixon @ Examiner.com
    • Excerpt: It’s tempting, if facile and snarky to say “Dracula sucks.” But…
  • Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
    • Excerpt: [W]hat we get is an overly familiar Dracula movie that lacks a distinguishing personality.
  • James Jay Edwards @ FilmFracture
    • Excerpt: ‘Dracula Untold’ Shows A Kinder, Gentler Prince Of Darkness
  • Sarah Gopaul @ Digital Journal
    • Excerpt: ‘Dracula: Untold’ entirely reimagines the famed vampire’s origin story, updating the tale for an audience raised on spectacle over subtlety.
  • Susan Granger @ www.susangranger.com
    • Excerpt: Is it damning with faint praise to say that this horror fantasy doesn’t totally suck?
  • Vadym Grygoriev @ kinoblog.com [Ukrainian]
  • MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
    • Excerpt: A solid action fantasy more elemental and visceral than I expected, thanks to the potent presence of Luke Evans.
  • Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic
    • Excerpt: Dracula Untold isn’t a tale that had to be left untold, but couldn’t someone have told it in a less stiff way? At least Luke Evans is the hunkiest Vlad the Impaler this world has ever seen.
  • Stefan Pape @ HeyUGuys
    • Excerpt: Breathes new life into an otherwise tired stomping ground, taking this story back hundreds of years and delving into the unknown origin story of the innovator himself, Mr. Dracula.
  • João Pinto @ Portal Cinema [Portuguese]
    • Excerpt: Numa visão geral torna-se díficil detestar esta obra. É claro que também é impossivél gostar dela.
  • Jason Pirodsky @ Expats.cz
    • Excerpt: Bram Stoker’s creation enters the world of George R. R. Martin in Dracula Untold, a supposed vampire movie that features precious little gothic horror, and instead combines Game of Thrones theatrics with epic (but bloodless PG-13) Braveheart-styled battle sequences. Terrific. This is exactly what Dracula fans have been clamoring for.
