Almost an entire century after the world’s first cinematic introduction to Dracula placed audiences under his haunting spell, the studio that pioneered the genre reawakens one of legend’s most captivating figures in an action-adventure that heralds a pulse-pounding rebirth of the age of monsters.

Dracula Untold Reviews
Luke Evans as Vlad The Impaler is fabulous and has a sex appeal. Sarah Gadon and Dominic Cooper has also played their part well. But director Gary Shore fails to recreate the same Dracula magic that the other movies have.
It is nothing more than one long, excruciating yawn...
A film that could have been a genre breaking masterpiece, Dracula Untold in its present form would be a more honest work of art if it were titled Dracula Unfortunately.
Overall, this film is not for those seeking a spooky tale, but for those ready to enjoy a human-interest saga.
...this is essentially Evans's vehicle. His version of Dracula is action-oriented rather than horrifying and creepy. And keeping that in mind, he manages, in most parts, to get his teeth into the substance of Count Dracula's legend convincingly enough.
It's a short enough film for an epic tale. Worth one watch.
...the film isn’t the least bit frightening — the makers seem to forget that this is supposed to be a horror film, and in shoehorning all the action computer-generated imagery, the film loses all its thrill and sense of dread.
Ultimately, the film is neither bad enough to give you a migraine, nor is it good enough to warrant a watch. It ends with a setup for a sequel, basically saying "haha, we'll be back, suckers!".
If you are bored and looking for a sci-fi entertainer, this might be the right choice for you. This movie is also a catch for anyone curious enough to dig into the folklore of Dracula.
