Witness the origin story of one of legend's most captivating figures in the action-adventure, Dracula Untold. 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 (Luke Evans, Fast & Furious 6, The Hobbit series), the prince of Wallachia. But when Sultan Mehmed II (Dominic Cooper, Captain America: The First Avenger) demands 1,000 of Wallachia's boys - including Vlad's own son - become child soldiers in his army, Vlad must enter into a Faustian bargain to save his family and his people. He gains the strength of 100 men, the speed of a falling star, and the power to crush his enemies. In exchange, he's inflicted with an insatiable thirst for human blood that could force him into a life of darkness and destroy all that he holds dear.

This movie had too many NIGHT TIME , DARK, SCENES which made it very hard to see the actions going on within it.... The overall story, plot told, and 'twist', on the old fabled , Dracula tale was alright but the filming on set was very hard to see and maneuver thru: the day time filming scope was fine. Thx.

I'm not a fan of period movies but this was very well done. It was also a unique approach to a story retold numerous times.

An intelligent approach to a well told story. First rate cast and production. Slaughter of the treacherous invading muslim hordes on Europe's doorstep could serve as a model for our own times. Good antidote to the twilight melodramas too.

Good CGI. Interesting early Dracula concept. The story was missing something to keep me glued to the movie 100%.

Is an OK movie. Instead of another vampire plot, this movie starts with the real Dracula - Vlad the Impaler.

A good version on the rigin and birth of Count Dracula.

I knew that it wasn't a good movie, but I got it from the library anyway, hoping for good special effects. Special effects are Ok, but not good enough to suffer through the stupidest plot (The movie didn't do justice both to the history and the legend), bad acting ( actors believe that acting equals making googly eyes), Turks in Russian armour. etc. No horror to talk about, nothing scary at all. So I decided to stop watching it somewhere in the middle of the movie. I can recommend it only to lovers of Harlequin romances - they will be able to enjoy lots of nude well-toned flesh, mostly male, lots of pretty men, I mean pretty, not handsome, just the kind you see on the covers of Harlequin romances. So if you are one of them - go for this movie.

Yet another re-telling (with a few liberties) of the life of Vlad the Impaler. This one has an overtly "adventure story" theme, and it manages to work, considering the (in my opinion) over-used vampire genre. The plot moves VERY fast in this adaptation, and there is a bit of an overabundance of CG effects. Overall, this film is a good way to burn off part of a lazy afternoon!

I found this creative mash-up approach to Dracula/Vlad The Impaler pretty entertaining.

Best two quotes:
1. Time is always too short for those who need it. But for those who love... last forever.
2. Sometimes the world no longer needs a hero. Sometimes what it needs... is a monster.

Master Vampire: I have been waiting an eternity for a man of your strength to arrive. But what kind of man crawls into his own grave in search of hope?
Vlad: A desperate one.
