"Poor people gonna rise up
And get their share
Poor people gonna rise up
And take what's theirs
Don't you know
You better run, run, run...
Oh I said you better Run, run, run...
Finally the tables are starting to turn
Talking about a revolution"
Tracy Chapman Talkin' Bout a Revolution
there was one review of Dracula Untold that said something like "the writers must have saw 'Game of Thrones' and thought "you know Ned Stark was missing?-dark powers!""
i think that is a perfect explanation of Luke Evans's Dracula. Dracula is sexy and scary- but Luke Evans is neither.
his dracula is a sweet and loving husband, a kind ruler (who killed entire villages, so enemies would know to stay away....
), and a devoted father and over all good man.
sexy- no. he always seems genuinely in love, but not lust. scary- defiantly no. grant it i would not want to be on the wrong side of his sword- he took on the dark powers for the most honorable of reasons.
so is Dracula untold a good dracuala movie?- no.
is it a good vampire movie- no
is it a good action/period piece movie?- yes.
