Customer Review

on 28 March 2004
Bram Stoker's Dracula should've been a brilliant movie. Unfortunately, the casting director made sure that was not going to happen by employing Keanu Reeves and Winona Ryder to take up key roles in the story (both act like amateurs and make one cringe at their laughable attempts at English accents).

When will Hollywood learn? There are no American actors who can do an English accent with any degree of believability.

I also thought that Hopkins was somewhat below par, playing a bluff, brawling, blunderbus - a familiar part for the actor - and managing to turn that role into a chariacature.

Having said all that, Gary Oldman is sublime as the Count and the production and cinematography are extremely good. There is a distinct nod to early 20th Century horror.

The superbit edition is the way to go for the best in sound quality, being in DTS.
