Dracula was never going to be the block- buster of the year, but in its requisite genre it certainly stands out. With a run- ning time of a concise 92 minutes, the film is tightly produced and flows well. The action in the film is scintillating - when Evans is mortal and immortal it re- ally is all about him. The powers that he gains make him absolutely unstoppable and he tears through the armies of the Sultan Mehmed (Dominic Cooper) with complete ease. The film leads up to a rather disappoint- ing final clash between Dracula and Mehmed. Mehmed uses Dracula's weak- nesses against him which was not nice to see; Dracula was supposed to be unde- featable - tearing through armies! To see him so weak in the final battle left me with a sour taste in my mouth. However, the overriding feel was one of complete and utter fantasy and if you enjoy that type of film then I would recommend you go and see it. The costumes are very good and the acting is decent. I would give it a solid 7/10 36 Issue 68 / 2014 FILM Luke Evans shines in one of his only leading roles as the terrifying and encapsulating Vlad the Impaler. Better known as Dracula! REVIEW
