Dracula Untold

Are we truly ready for a reboot of the greatest vampire of them all after the desecration the legend has sustained? Well, at least this reimagining from director Gary Shore, making his feature debut, and screenwriters Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless (the writing duo’s debut here led to a next assignment on Gods of Egypt, already in post-production), had the good sense to focus on the character of Dracula (Luke Evans), and by character, I actually mean his character — the decision to become an undead creature hinges on his undying love of family and his eternal loyalty to his countrymen. (Opens wide Friday) (PG-13) Not screened in time for review.
