DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Adventure - Despite being based on one of the most iconic horror characters, this is more of an action-adventure film with horror elements like the Underworld series or this year's I, Frankenstein. While the film has a PG-13 rating due to only fairly moderate bloodshed, there is still a lot of violence and intense action that would be of note to parents of young children.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Average There's nothing here to convince that the story of Dracula Untold needs to be told.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Above Average These small, moody charms add up, and give a film that sounds so very dumb some much-needed atmosphere. There's not much more to 'Dracula Untold,' but it does periodically throb with surface-deep tension.

USA Today Full Review
Average His Dracula turns the iconic villain into a Transylvanian action hero in the new horror-fantasy film. But before he unleashes his power, Dracula Untold drags like a heavy coffin.

NY Post Full Review
Below Average 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.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 103 moviegoers:
GREAT REVIEWS! All ages, both males and females, REALLY ENJOYED "DRACULA UNTOLD." A high percentage indicated they loved it with most of the rest rating it as an "Above average" movie, which indicates they enjoyed it very much. There were a few adult males that only rated it "average." I fit in this age group and I felt it was the best Dracula story I've seen. It is a different telling of the story than you probably expect so be sure to read all the information we provide before deciding if this might be a movie you would enjoy.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
The year is 1462, and Transylvania has enjoyed a prolonged period of peace under the just and fair rule of the battle-weary Vlad III, Prince of Wallachia, and his beloved and brave wife, Mirena (SARAH GADON). Together, they have brokered peace for their country and ensured its people are well-protected, especially from the powerful Ottoman Empire-an ever-expanding scourge that has its sights on global domination.

But when Sultan Mehmed II (DOMINIC COOPER) demands 1,000 of Wallachia's boys-including Vlad's own son, Ingeras (ART PARKINSON)-be torn from their parents' homes and forced to become child soldiers in his army, Vlad must decide: do the same as his father before him and give up his son to the sultan, or seek the help of a monster to defeat the Turks but ultimately doom his soul to a life of servitude.

Vlad journeys to Broken Tooth Mountain, where he encounters a foul demon (CHARLES DANCE) and enters into a Faustian bargain-one that gives the prince the strength of 100 men, the speed of a falling star and enough power to crush his enemies. However, he will be inflicted with an insatiable thirst to drink human blood.

If by the end of three days Vlad manages to resist, he will return to his former self, and perhaps in that time manage to save his people. Though should he drink, he will be forced to dwell in the darkness for the rest of his days, feeding only on the blood of humans...and destroying all that he holds dear.
