I was really hoping that Dracula Untold was one of those films that the critics hated but the fans loved. What it turned out to be was a film that could have been great but suffered because of a forced PG-13 rating. When you make a film about Dracula, you need an R rating or the film just isn't going to work.
Luke Evans did the best he could with what he was given and nobody can say otherwise. Charles Dance played the part of a freaky unnamed vampire really well and I wish this film had been great so we could have gotten a sequel. Unfortunately, Dracula Untold was hard to follow, suffered a mediocre story, and had a tacked on, cheesy ending that was way too sequel-pandering. Overall, I was very disappointed.
