Witness the origin story of one of legend’s most captivating figures in the action-adventure, Dracula Untold. The year is 1462 and Transylvania has enjoyed a prolonged period of peace under the just and fair rule of the battle-weary Vlad III, the prince of Wallachia (Luke Evans, Fast & Furious 6, The Hobbit series). But when Sultan Mehmed II (Dominic Cooper, Captain America: The First Avenger) demands 1,000 of Wallachia’s boys – including Vlad’s own son – become child soldiers in his army, Vlad must enter into a Faustian bargain to save his family and his people. He gains the strength of 100 men, the speed of a falling star, and the power to crush his enemies. In exchange, he’s inflicted with an insatiable thirst for human blood that could force him into a life of darkness and destroy all that he holds dear.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Neither awful enough to suck nor sharp enough to bite, Dracula Untold misses the point of its iconic character's deathless appeal.

Violent but dull Dracula tale should have stayed untold.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Dracula Untold serves as the legendary vampire's origin story -- as well as a reboot of Universal Studios' series of classic monster movies. It's more of a war movie than a horror movie, with tons of fighting with both fists and swords, but very little blood is shown (pretty surprising/unrealistic, considering that arms are chopped off and characters are impaled...). There are some jump-shock scenes in which vampires suddenly attack. A character drinks blood from a broken skull. A married couple kisses passionately; they start to have sex but stop. The man is shown shirtless, and the woman wears a dress that emphasizes her cleavage. A woman and a young boy are the victims of violence and oppression.
