Critic Reviews for Wes Craven Presents Dracula III: Legacy
At least in the cinematic morass that is modern movies, "Dracula III" is better than the wimpy vampire lore pioneered by Anne Rice.
At least he's ending somewhere just north of mediocre.
does the cliffhanger ending indicate that everyone involved thinks it's a good idea to keep this series going
...contains some decent acting and some solid atmospherics. The only thing it doesn't contain is a script adequate enough to develop any serious thrills, shocks, or suspense.
Audience Reviews for Wes Craven Presents Dracula III: Legacy
Easily the best of the franchise this addition allows the story and atmosphere to work together. Looking at the budget you could really wonder how this low budget film could make the first pale in comparison. The ending in particular signals interest in continuing the series and if looking at this sequel you could really look at watching further adventures. Jason Scott lee is actually quite watchable compared to the first sequel. It's puzzling to see this talented actor treading through these direct to DVDs. It's interesting the changing of Dracula with each film and hauer is spot on casting. The trouble is he is only a cameo and is unable to offer anything grand to the role. Jason London is better this time around but is still not entirely convincing as an actor. Lussier is growing as a filmmaker and this low budget sequel is further proof. The atmosphere is much better and the film is interesting. The budget works against him at times but you would be shocked watching this film and not think it was a vampire film. The film doesn't rush along and its interesting compared to the previous films. The screenplay isn't citizen Kane nor does it try to be. The story is interesting and allows the low budget to play within the film. The ending in particular is daring. If you went through the first and second you'll need to see this last entry. Jason Scott lee is well cast and offers an interesting anti hero.
A most disappointing and lackluster conclusion to the Dracula 2000 series, Dracula III: Legacy is a rather dull and formulaic vampire film. The story follows two vampire hunters that head to Romanian in search of Dracula, who they believe is behind a civil uprising. Jason Scott Lee and Jason London return to reprise their roles, and Rutger Hauer takes on the role of Dracula. Sadly, none of the promise that was setup with the second film is built upon, and the two films only seem tangentially related. Additionally, the low-budget effects and sets show through and detract from the storytelling. Dracula III: Legacy relies on tired old vampire tropes and has nothing original to offer.
Sink your teeth into this cool as hell and awesome horror film. It's thrilling, witty, sharp and totally awesome. Rutger Hauer is brilliant as Dracula in the newest chapter to the series. A fun and creepy thrill-ride that can almost be considered a masterpiece. A strong, compelling, suspenseful and intensely terrifying flick. An explosively exciting and very entertaining movie. Director, Patrick Lussier has done a great job with this series from the 2000 film to this riveting chapter in the series. From start to finish this movie is a thrilling and fun blast.
