Review: Dracula Untold is a action/horror film that tells the beginning story of the feared Dracula. I was honestly trying to avoid watching Dracula Untold, due to all the negative reviews I saw about the movie. It’s just funny because Dracula Untold wasn’t bad at all, it could have been better, but it was a good film overall. I do wish Dracula Untold was a longer film because everything felt like it was moving too fast. This is a very underrated movie and is absolutely worth a watch!
The story for Dracula Untold was intriguing and could keep the viewers eyes peeled onto the screen. It follows the story of prince Vlad before he turned into the most feared vampire we know of today and gives us insight on his decision. In order to protect his people Vlad must turn to darkness in order to defeat his enemies, thus a legend is born. Dracula Untold brings us a more sensitive and noble look at the monster as well as some great thrills.How was the acting? The acting in Dracula Untold was good and highly enjoyable. Luke Evans, Charles Dance, and Sarah Gadon had amazing performances, but their the only ones that had major roles. The supporting cast did good, but honestly nobody else had a big enough role in Dracula Untold to get recognized.
Dracula Untold did lack a decent amount when it came to the scares, basically there weren’t any scare scenes. People just need to remember that this is a action/horror, so there aren’t going to be many scares. They did have to make Dracula Untold a little different from the other movies, because this was the beginning, it clearly would be different from other movies. Dracula Untold did contain a decent amount of blood, but I thought that the kills and action scenes were incredible. Sure there could have been more scares and blood, but scenes like this will always fill that void. Overall I loved the movie Dracula Untold and thought it was highly entertaining. The story was intriguing and keep the viewers entertained the whole time. One problem I had with Dracula Untold was that it was extremely short, I literally felt like I was flying through the movie. The acting was well done. Luke Evans, Charles Dance, and Sarah Gadon had amazing performances, as well as the supporting cast. Dracula Untold isn’t scary and lacks in blood, but it seriously made up for it with the amazing scenes that were in the film. They were honestly incredible and I can’t wait for the sequel, if there is one. If you haven’t seen Dracula Untold yet, I absolutely recommend you go watch!
