It might’ve been 84 degrees outside but that wasn’t going to stop me from my celebration of Halloween and the fall season by going to see Dracula Untold today and then washing it down with some hot chocolate from Starbucks.
Going in, I expected this to be a decent movie but I was blown away by how awesome it was. Screw the critics; they hate everything — Dracula Untold is extremely enjoyable. As far as I’m concerned, it’s the best of any of Universal’s recent attempts at remaking their classic monsters (The Mummy series starring Brendan Fraser, Van Helsing, The Wolfman). The PG-13 rating doesn’t hold back the gore at all. You can get away with so much these days with just a PG-13 rating and this movie delivers quite a few gory and bloody moments while delivering tons of action.
