I thought this movie action-packed exciting and intense. Luke Evans plays the role of Vlad the Impaler, the Prince of Transylvania.
This PG-13 rating was fitting for the small amounts of gory and intense sex scenes that build over the 1 hour and 32 minutes, said rottentomatoes.com
Vlad become a monster feared by men, to protect his people from the Turks. Dracula, the son of the Devil was born.
Dracula is the hero in this story. He is portrayed as a good man who is trying to protect the male children in his village from a serving as slaves in the Turkish army. By the end I was rooting for the vampires.
This movie is all about action and battles. Dracula has several large battle scenes in which he lays waste to countless Turkish soldiers. Dracula uses his newly founded powers to devastate many enemies at once.
This film is totally different from the 1992 film, Bram Stoker’s Dracula. The original Dracula was a novel that was written by Bram Stoker in 1897.
Dracula is young and shown as a warrior hero. Stoker’s Dracula, played by Gary Oldman was older and wiser.
Another difference in Dracula was that the 92 Dracula was said to have been the original Dracula. In the new film, Dracula is made by Charles Dance who plays the Master Vampire. He lives in a mountain and looks like Nosferatu. said rottentomatoes.
The Master Vampire has old white skin, long sharp crooked fingernails and jagged teeth. I thought that he was a very interesting character.
The ratings and reviews have not been very good from other sources. I enjoyed this film a lot.
It paces much like the Marvel movies. It has wild computer-generated battle scenes mixed with steamy PG-13 love scenes and strong emotional scenes all with in the first thirty minutes.
I would recommend this movie for adrenaline junkies and fans of the Marvel movies or the hobbit movies.
