This retelling trys to offer a different spin on the origin of Dracula. Unfortunately, there's nothing here audiences haven't seen before.

Mary, a descendant of the prototypical vampire slayer, works at a Virgin megastore in New Orleans, and the gratuitous use of the city during Mardi Gras is the least of this movie's unoriginal sins.
One half-expects a sexually subversive, blood-soaked gay carnival. Instead, Simon makes the effete Dracula (Butler) suck on some abuse.
This is occasionally entertaining stuff, but deeply silly.
Dracula may stay undead in the new millennium, but there's not a sign of life -- oh, that bloodless acting -- in this sorry mess.
Even true believers will have a hard time sinking their fangs into this thoroughly perfunctory affair.
Wilts when compared in the light with other Dracula films.
A fast-paced and captivating exercise in gory action-horror, à la Wesley Snipes's 1998 bloodsucker epic, Blade.
It's still a fun bit of "Matrix" lite horror fare...
Too scary, too gory, too gross.
Without a single scare to its credit nor a particularly inspired storyline, this film fails to justify its existence.
While the result certainly doesn't suck, it does lack any real bite.
The use of Craven's name in the title is a cheesy marketing ploy and the secret to the fanged suitor's aversion to all things Christian is an even cheesier hoot.
Enjoyable. Any film where Omar Epps dies is enjoyable.
Dracula: You made the world in your image. Now I make it in mine.

Dracula 2000 is bad. It's the worst Dracula related film I have seen, yet it has some entertainment value in its awfulness. You know those movies that are bad, but are so bad, they are good. Well, this isn't one of those, but it isn't so bad that it is unwatchable. Actually there are some decent ideas in the film. I really liked the connection between Judas and Dracula. Had it been used in a better way, it could have been much better. But the whole idea was executed in a hurried and sloppy way, that made it come of as idiotic, when it should have been inventive. It is easy to see that Dracula 2000 wants to reinvent the Dracula-vampire genre. It wants to be the Scream of the vampire genre. It wants to use humor and predictability as an advantage, but it never even gets close to doing that as well as what Scream did for the slasher genre.
There are some points of interest with the movie though. Christopher Plummer plays Van Helsing, which was a great casting decision. It's too bad that he was mostly wasted though. Gerard Butler plays Dracula and he isn't terrible, but like normal, he is appearing in a movie that is beneath him. There's some well done scenes, some cool images, and I liked the use of Christianity, but on a whole it never gets to where it needs to be. The acting for the most part is pretty lifeless. There are some beautiful women that are there just because they are beautiful.
Where this movie fails the most at is with the fact that it isn't a horror film. Sure that's what it's classified as, but never in the movie does it seem like it's even trying to be scary. It may, in fact be trying, but it never appears that way to the viewer. It seems like an hour and a half of failed laughs and suspense. I'm fine with horror movies that try to create laughs, but there has to be a sense of something in the way of horror, and Dracula 2000 just doesn't have that. In the end, it is just a failed attempt at recreating a Dracula story for a new generation.
A hip, stylish, thrilling and exhilarating re-imaging of the classic tale told in the twenty first century. A smart, funny and action-packed horror flick with brains as well as teeth. It's one of the best vampire films involving Dracula since Frances Ford Coppala's film. It's one frequently cool thrill-ride that delivers the goods. A great cast. Christopher Plummer is brilliant, Johnny Lee Miller is terrific. Gerard butler is excellent, he brings a great presence and is thrilling in the role of the iconic character.
Not really that good and you knew what was happening every step of the way. There was a good twist on the origin of Dracula that I really liked but the film was pretty one note. It's the action movie version of Dracula.
