As a horror flick, this Dracula is toothless, earning two stars at best. The strange absence of blood from a vampire/war film renders the experience anemic. I also don't get the point of making a film that portrays pre-vampire Dracula as sympathetic and heroic -- and I certainly don't understand why a plot point would focus on Dracula's apparent ability to control his blood-lust or to sacrifice vampiric interests in favor of human ones -- that is, unless the studio hoped to turn this "Dracula" into a hero vampire in the mold of Wesley Snipe's Blade.
Despite these problems, approaching the film as an action film, it's actually quite enjoyable. The costumes and CGI are very good, and Evans and Dance deliverer very good performances (for an action/horror film), although the same cannot be said for Gadon and Murtagh, both of whom are merely adequate. There are some script problems, of course, which border on the absurd. For example, Dracula will single-handedly take on 1000 attacking soldiers, who all apparently stop their castle attack/charge to gather 'round and watch themselves be picked off one by one -- and during this process (which must have been over an hour or so, given Dracula's slaughter pace), none of the soldiers defending the castle seem to notice, because they only come charging out the gates (looking baffled) after Dracula has slain the entire attacking army!
If you can put up with silly writing, you aren't in the mood for a horror film, and you just want a mindless action movie, I would recommend this film. But now the true test: if there's a sequel made, I'll buy a ticket.
