[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.
