More Info:
  • Gary Goldstein

    As effective and fat-free as its sinewy star, Luke Evans, Dracula Untold proves an absorbing, swiftly comprehensive origin tale.

  • Bilge Ebiri

    Dracula Untold is a dumb, lowest-common-denominator kind of movie, but it’s a surprisingly entertaining one. It’s brisk, which counts for a lot in this overbaked genre. The action is directed with verve and imagination — and it’s all gorgeously bleak, with black clouds of bats whipping around remote, craggy castles beneath portentous Carpathian skies.

  • David Hiltbrand

    Dracula Untold is a movie that gives good trailer. That's not surprising because it's a visually arresting saga. Unfortunately, the story in the final, full version is thicker than blood.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Simon Abrams

    The good news barely outweighs the bad in Dracula Untold, a lightweight war-adventure that is ultimately stranger and more enticing when it remembers it's also a horror film. Full Review
  • Bruce Ingram

    Vlad’s numerous speeches about love, honor and family grow tedious, along with the film’s wooden dialogue in general. And it quickly becomes obvious that Dracula Untold is more interested in being cool than making sense.

  • Tim Robey

    If they had to give Drac an “origin story” this literal-minded, at least they had the sense to keep it keen and lively, whittled to a point.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Drew Taylor

    He's a romantic and a psychopath and creature of the night. Sadly, Dracula Untold, with its humorless aura and been-there-done-that feel, doesn't allow Evans to inhabit many of these aspects. Instead, Dracula Untold feels largely uninspired.

  • Brian Truitt

    At times Dracula Untold flirts with dullness so much that it might as well just stick a stake in the heart of Bram Stoker's legacy.

    USA Today Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Instead of being respectful of Bram Stoker's creation, it attempts to remake him as a tragic figure with superhero powers.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    No campy vampire movie, and the early part of the film is well-made enough that the sadness of Vlad’s dilemma is truly felt.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    More sad dad and noble martyr than creature of the night, Evans’ dashing Prince Of Darkness inspires less fear than just about any incarnation of the famous character, save perhaps the one played by Leslie Nielsen.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Kyle Anderson

    It works neither as a sweeping historical epic nor as an action-horror hybrid.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Charles Dance is the Nosferatu-garbed monster in the cave, a balding, toothy villain in the great tradition of British vampires — Christopher Lee, Gary Oldman, Michael Sheen and Kate Beckinsale among them. The moment he shows up, all shadowy menace and prophecy, “Dracula” gets interesting.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Dan Callahan

    For about the first hour of its running time, Dracula Untold is far too restrained and tasteful, and it certainly suffers from its tediously noble hero; it's well made but fatally lacking in thrills or excitement.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Barbara VanDenburgh

    Aside from Dance and some hazy views of impaled bodies, the film is low on shock and gore. It's aiming more for sweeping historical epic, but it doesn't work on either level.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Ben Kenigsberg

    Looking for plausibility in a movie called Dracula Untold is as pointless as looking for humor or personality in Mr. Evans’s dour performance.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Jordan Hoffman

    The CGI — mostly Evans transforming into fightin’ bats — look muddy and cheap, but the weapons, Turkish helmets and Romanian interiors are all gorgeous. If only the rest of this “Lord of the Rings” wanna-be were at the same level.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Alan Scherstuhl

    Too much of the last hour is a muddle of unconvincing, hard-to-read nighttime action scenes.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Mike McCahill

    It’s no-frills, B-movie modesty might have been winning, if it weren’t so dashed-off.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Kim Newman

    Armour-clanging, cloak-swishing tosh with okay battles, terrible dialogue and sadly little horror or heroism. Nowhere near as bad as I, Frankenstein – but what is?

    Empire Full Review
  • Kevin C. Johnson

    This toothless attempt is just dead on arrival.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    The origins story Dracula Untold is Dracula unbold — unoriginal, unimaginative and utterly non-unprecedented. This Vlad the Impaler has all the edge of Vlasic the pickle.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    The film isn’t awful. There are moments of handsome cinematography and occasional effects that both frighten and impress.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    Dracula Untold boldly attempts to retell the Dracula origin story by sinking its teeth into Bram Stoker’s novel and draining it of all the passion, sensuality, and ambience that have seduced readers and moviegoers since the turn of the 20th century.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    Another addition to Universal’s Pictures Classic Monsters arsenal of crap (remember Van Helsing?), director Shore, in his feature debut, displays a fine sense of pacing but little else.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Frank Scheck

    Much like the recent, widely reviled I, Frankenstein, this misconceived project mainly signals a need to go back to the drawing board.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Scott Foundas

    Dracula Untold opts for the stately, staid approach, and even at a mere 85 minutes (sans credits) it’s something of a bore — neither scary nor romantic nor exciting in any of the ways it seems to intend.

    Variety Full Review
  • Stephen Whitty

    If this Dracula can kill hundreds of enemies by himself — and he can, and does, in several dull and protracted battle scenes — then where's the suspense? If he's become a monster for noble reasons, then where's the dark conflict?

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Ed Gonzalez

    It's a story arc that wouldn't be out of place on Game of Thrones, except it lacks for the HBO program's dense and surprising dramatic reflexes.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Tom Huddleston

    Drab, silly and mind-numbing, this Dracula is strictly for the suckers.
