REVIEW | Dracula Untold

By Pedro Cooray

One of the blandest movies of the year, this new origin story for Count Dracula turns him into a sympathetic king, forced into vampirism to defend his homeland. The story is a minefield of plot holes, peppered with terrible dialogue, boring special effects and repetitive action sequences.

The only highlight of the film is star Luke Evans’s admirable attempt to salvage the horrendous script. Still, the film made back twice its budget, and a possible sequel is already in the works. Welcome to Hollywood.

Pardon me for making the obvious joke, but Dracula Untold should have stayed untold.
