This film is beautiful. The score is amazing.... Gary Oldman does not disappoint. That being said, this is one of the worst waste of film i've ever seen. Ryder and Reeves are ridiculous and should stick to surfer movies. Blech. Peeee-ew.... waste of time.

This Dracula adaptation proved to be very classical in nature, bringing with it great actors and a believable story line!

A full blooded adaptation of the Stoker story benefits from Oldman in the lead, with Anthony Hopkins, Winona Ryder, Cary Elwes, Richard Grant, and Bill Campbell all doing good turns in various roles. The one glaring problem with the film: Keanu Reeves, who can't hold an English accent for more than five minutes and lacks the presence the role required. He should count himself lucky that Speed and the Matrix were films still in his future when he made this.

It was too tempting for me to see this movie available on "Super Bit" for $5.00 and not buy it. I will admit i was not that happy while watching this movie on my HOMETHEATER. But the visual effects were great and Mr.Oldman was impressive as Dracula. The shape shifting, mist movements and shadows were done very well. The werewolf that turns into rats was very good.There are some good sound effects, but mostly all around sound. However, when Dracula was not in a scene, i wasn't feeling this movie that much. It was not boring. Just some of the characters were not that interesting and it made the film drag a bit for me. But i'll give this movie 3 stars. For Gary Oldman's performace of Dracula, and the visual effetcs. 2 large home made hamburgers with plenty of ketchup and a touch of mustard, with thick french fries, two rolls, and a large glass filled with ice and rootbeer.

I can’t believe I went to the theater to watch this movie—and stayed till the end! Not even two great actors—Oldman and Hopkins—could have saved this pastiche. There are so many problems and ridiculous scenes I kept wondering if it was not actually meant as some dark comedy… No surprise on Reeves and Ryder, two of the worse actors ever—he, as always wooden-looking and she squirming and giving little moans and cries that made her look even more like the little mouse she is. And why—oh, why?!—do they get American actors to imitate British accent?! In short, this is the story of bitter, baby-killer, brutal, odd-looking Count Dracul, who surrounds himself with a bunch of nymphomaniacs; he lives from orgy to sucking blood from babies, to finally find his beloved, a the mousy, perverted, sex-crazed Mina, etc, etc, etc. Oh, did I forget to mention Oldman’s ATROCIOUS accent, which will make you LOL and, at the same time, wish you could wring his neck?

OMG this was a terrible movie. Keanu Reeves' attempted English accent was a crime against language. Bram Stoker probably did a few spins in his grave after Coppola's treatment of his classic novel. Even Anthony Hopkins turns in a rare stinky performance. In a nutshell - this movie encapsulates the worst of 1990's Hollywood. Thankfully they did not make a sequel..."Dracula 2 - this time he's twice as undead!"

Why this movie is called “Bram Stoker’s Dracula” is beyond me, since it bears little resemblance to Stoker’s novel. By the end of the movie you don’t care about any of the characters, since they’re all so depraved. You certainly don’t feel any sympathy for the baby-killing Count Dracul, even though at the end you are presumably supposed to feel glad that he finally finds peace.

None of the characters are able to control their sexual desires, even the cross-wielding Van Helsing. The women especially are portrayed as weak and fallible. They are portrayed as either prim and proper prudes or sex-crazed whores, with the former quickly becoming the latter. Love is equated with lust. There are countless scenes of perverted sex with copious amounts of blood. One particularly disgusting scene involved one of Dracula’s concubines licking blood squirting from another concubine’s nipple.

The movie is just one long orgy of depraved sex and blood-sucking, with a ridiculous ending tacked on. There doesn’t seem to be any rationale for Mina Harker’s adulterous passion for Dracula – why would anyone become besotted with a mass-murderer who turns into a werewolf to have bestial sex with other women? Why does the movie end with Mina saying that her love for Dracula was their salvation, as if it is a noble thing to “love” someone even more evil than Jeffrey Dahmer? To me, love is fidelity, self-sacrifice, and the cultivation of virtue, not adultery, lust, and an eternal “life” of vampirism.

Count (Lord) Dracula ascends upon England to wreak havoc on the fiancee of a man who Dracula wants as his own.

In this evil love story Reeves is the unsuspecting muse of Gary Oldman, while Hopkins & Ryder try to save him from the dark underworld.

Gary Oldman, Keanu Reeves, Anthony Hopkins and Winona Ryder do an excellent job all around.

Not recommended for anyone under 21, due to the graphic sexual scenes and pure evilness portrayed.
