Story: Dracula Untold is an origin tale of how Vlad the Impaler acquired his identity as - in his own words in the movie - "Count Dracula, Son of the Devil".

Review: Contrary to the title of the movie, this story aims to tell all that has yet been untold about the 15th century Transylvanian tyrant who had the nasty (for some of the townsfolk who disobeyed him and all of his enemies, that is), habit of skewering their heads on tall stakes. Of course in this film, there are many creative liberties thrown in, not all of them savoury.

Prince Vlad (Evans) is a good husband to wife Mirena (Gadon) and a surprisingly doting dad to little Ingeras (Parkinson). But when Vlad gets truly pissed off with the bad guys, he goes ballistic on them and his rage knows no bounds. It's almost like a split personality.

As Vlad and his people are readying for Easter celebrations (he was still not Dracula as yet, so celebrating festivals was apparently okay), an advance party of Mehmed II's (Cooper) soldiers come a-knocking at the gates of Transylvania for a tribute present of 1,000 boys for the Turkish army. Realizing he is outnumbered, Vlad visits the Master Vampire for some supernatural help. When Vlad sips the Vampire's blood, his life changes forever.

Evans tries admirably enough to fit into the tragic hero depiction envisioned by director Shore; we are meant to understand that even this vampire has a heart (which albeit can still be pierced by a wooden stake), loved his family and most people. The same people who would later shun this 'beast'. The supporting cast measures up well enough, except for the Turks, who are reduced to rhetoric-spewing, kohl-eyed baddies with accents that are more modern-day Russia than ancient-day Turkey.

That aside, this is essentially Evans's vehicle. His version of Dracula is action-oriented rather than horrifying and creepy. And keeping that in mind, he manages, in most parts, to get his teeth into the substance of Count Dracula's legend convincingly enough.
