I went in to Wes Craven Presents Dracula III: Legacy cold, without having seen either Dracula 2000 or Wes Craven Presents Dracula II: Ascension, so I can't really compare what has come before with what takes place here. I was cautiously optimistic about the film, though (the name Wes Craven doesn't necessarily guarantee quality the way it once did). There are some things I didn't like about Dracula III, but overall it's a better than average vampire film. There could have been more blood and gore, and some of the special effects toward the end smelled slightly of cheese, but Jason Scott Lee pretty much carries the film. His character, Father Uffizi, isn't your typical vampire hunter - and he's certainly not your typical priest - and I think that gives the film a special little spin. Unfortunately, the movie is short on hot vampire chicks. Diane Neal more than fits the bill, but she's limited to the film's final scenes.

Father Uffizi is going after Dracula, with or without the Church's blessing (the Church being represented by Roy Scheider in a short, nonessential cameo). Unfortunately, he takes an annoying do-gooder sidekick with him. I can understand Luke's (Jason London) motivation, since the woman he loves is now a plaything of the vampire and it's apparently all his fault, but his is the kind of character vampire movies just don't need - unless they're going for comedy. The two make their way to Romania, a country in the throes of civil war, and fight their way through a number of obstacles - both human and vampiric. Along the way, they take up with an English journalist who is about to get the scoop of her life (assuming she lives to report it, of course) when she learns that the real source of the trouble in Romania is a vampire.

this sequel to Dracula II:Ascension,which is sort of a sequel to
Dracula 2000,has much more story than either of the other 2.almost too
much,in fact.it moves at a pretty slow pace,then,just when you think
you can bear no more,something interesting happens to keep you
watching.Two of the main characters from Dracula II are more fleshed
out,and there is a wee bit of humour to lighten things up on one or two
rare occasions.near the end,when i thought it was over,i was thinking
how anti climatic it all was.but i realized it wasn't quite over,and
the actual ending is brilliant.it begs for a sequel,which is not likely
to happen.and yet,it's also a perfect conclusion.the ending(well,that
and Rutger Hauer as Dracula--a stroke of genius)is what elevated the
move for me.otherwise,i would have given this less.as it stands,i give
Dracula III:Legacy a 3/5

If Dracula II was loads of step behind Dracula 2000, then Dracula III misses almost everything it 'should' promise: an epic finale (forget that), superb visuals (forget that too), intense drama (sorry, no dice) and better development and plot twists (nope, wrong door).. Characters follow a traced road, encounter meagre villains and usually take stupid decisions... even in terms of DTV, it's pretty lame so I wouldn't even bother with this one...

Sometimes, though, it is fun to watch a bad movie and think what we would have done different, why and how ultimately our vision would probably have been better... having the necessary time, of course.

But Dracula III outstays its welcome by a fair margin and disappoints at just about every chance it has to redeem itself.

Do yourself a favor: skip it.

The heir apparent to John Carpenter's legacy has been found July 26 2005
By Cubist - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Move over Blade, there is a new vampire franchise in town. Tired of slick, over-produced horror movies like Underworld? Look no further. Dracula III: Legacy is the latest installment in a surprisingly durable franchise. Director Patrick Lussier has been quietly picking up the slack from a now dormant John Carpenter by making straightforward, atmospheric B-horror movies.

Jason Scott Lee is surprisingly effective as a driven vampire hunter. Armed with a nasty looking scythe, he is a very efficient (and cool) killer of the undead. He wouldn't be out of place in a Carpenter film as one of the auteur's trademark, enigmatic men-of-action, like Snake Plissken in Escape from New York. In contrast to Lee's no-nonsense character, Jason London is the easy-going sidekick that provides the film's doses of comic relief. These two actors have come a long way from films like Dragon (Lee) and Mallrats (London) to form an excellent duo.

Dracula III features a good balance of cool characters, the right amount of exposition and a beefed up vampire presence that was lacking from Dracula II. This last installment of the trilogy captures a modern gothic atmosphere beautifully, putting other contemporary Hollywood horror movies to shame. The heir apparent to John Carpenter's legacy has been found and it should be interesting to see what Lussier does next.

There is an audio commentary by writer/director Patrick Lussier, producer/co-writer Joel Soisson and special makeup designer Gary Tunnicliffe. This is chatty track as the three men discuss their movie and the challenges of shooting on a budget.

"A Conversation with Patrick Lussier on the Mythology of Vampires." The director was fascinated by the depiction of vampires all over the world and in particular Romania's Vlad the Impaler and Bram Stoker's take on the legend.

"A Conversation with Special Makeup Designer Gary J. Tunnicliffe." He talks about the hardships of working in the cold weather of Romania and how he had to ship in fake blood and reassemble the plastic weapons because they kept breaking in the cold weather.

"Cast Auditions" features footage of four of the supporting cast members who were taken from Europe.

"Deleted Scene-Flat Tire" features our heroes fixing a flat tire and encountering some undead along the way.

Also included is an "Alternate Ending" that features a much more upbeat ending than what is in the existing version.

For dedicated fans of this franchise there are the original story treatments for all three movies that allow one to see them in their early stages and how Lussier initially envisioned them.

Finally, there are trailers for the first two Dracula movies.

Father Uffizi and his scythe take on Dracula in Romania July 12 2005
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Although the title might suggest otherwise, "Dracula III: The Legacy" is not the final part of a trilogy but rather the second half of a story begun in "Dracula II: The Ascension." In other words, you do not need to go back to "Dracula 2000," because there is really nothing in that movie that has anything to do with these other two. This may or may not have anything to do with the audacious but rather ludicrous idea that the reason vampires loath Christian symbols is that Dracula is really (wait for it) Judas Iscariot, but except for the fact that at the end of "Dracula 2000" the title character is a charred corpse and at the start of "Dracula II" he is a charred corpse, there is really nothing else to connect the dots (and for what it is worth, yes, I buy the explanation for why Dracula looks different in each of these films).

When we go to the "to be continued" end of "Dracula II," Luke (Jason London) is desperate to find out what happened to the woman of his affections, Elizabeth Blaine (Diane Neal). Luke is traveling with Father Uffizi (Jason Scott Lee), a vampire killer who uses a scythe to decapitate the undead. Uffizi remains at odds with the Church because his superior, Cardinal Siqueros (Roy Scheider), insists that the goal is not just to kill vampires but to try saving their souls as well. Father Uffizi and Luke are making their way through the Romanian countryside where they have to worry not only about vampires, but revolutionaries and other people with guns. They discover a British TV reporter, Julia Hughes (Alexandra Westcourt), who though she was covering the war but has stumbled upon Dracula's plot to use the locals to stock his blood cellar. The whole concern about the scientific properties of vampire blood and the emphasis on all of those ancient Eastern European superstitions regarding vampires now take a back seat to rescuing Elizabeth and stopping the orgy of blood sucking taking place over at the Dracula place.

This 2005 film is again directed by Patrick Lussier, who co-wrote the script with Joel Soisson. Lee is certainly a compelling lead figure, and London manages to provide the comic relief without becoming laughable in the wrong way, but the problem is that in a Dracula movie the big bad vampire should pop up for more than the conclusion. Granted, the film really is more about Uffizi to the point where you wonder why it has to be a Dracula film. But then it would be too much of a Blade rip-off. At this point it reminds me more of the "Hellraiser" direct to video releases where Pinhead usually shows up just at the end. If you are going to go this route then you really need the journey to be a lot more interesting, but what we have here is nothing like going off to see Marlon Brando in "Apocalypse Now."

Lussier filmed both "Dracula II" and "Dracula III" at the same time in Romania, but for some reason I have not bothered to investigate we have had to wait all this time for this direct to video release. The production values are pretty good (you get your money's worth in Romania apparently) and I liked doing a contemporary film back on Dracula's home turf. But Rutger Hauer is not simply wasted, his performance is counter-productive. Ultimately the whole idea here is that Uffizi is arriving at a personal crucible, and the Dracula he finds at the end is not worthy of the moment, especially given the ending they want to go with for the movie (I was going to say for the series as well, but who knows: they might be trying to squeeze a few quarts of blood out of this storyline).

third time is the charm Feb. 2 2006
By Barnabas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I was very pleased with the first two movies in this series and was hopeful that part three would deliver. It did. Legacy is a fine third chapter that really entertains. Sure I wish that filmakers had been given more money for another theatrical release BUT that's a minor quibble. Legacy and the first two movies make a very satisfying trilogy that many horror fans should appreciate. This is one of the best modern horror series.

By and large, a better-than-average vampire movie Oct. 27 2005
By Daniel Jolley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I went in to Wes Craven Presents Dracula III: Legacy cold, without having seen either Dracula 2000 or Wes Craven Presents Dracula II: Ascension, so I can't really compare what has come before with what takes place here.

Along the way, they take up with an English journalist who is about to get the scoop of her life (assuming she lives to report it, of course) when she learns that the real source of the trouble in Romania is a vampire. As you might expect, the final scenes play out in Dracula's abode, and I can't say I was all that impressed with the head honcho blood-sucker. He's not all that bright to have caused so much trouble for so many centuries and his security system could certainly do with some improvements - and it takes more than harsh whispering to make a vampire truly impressive. Half the time, I had to strain to understand whatever rubbish Rutger Hauer was putting out there. I liked the ending, though - it's not unpredictable, but it is subtle.

The special effects are pretty darn good for the most part; human appendages tend to be less impressive when they're separated from the body, and I thought the special effects of the climactic scenes could have been better, but I'm not really complaining. Okay, I will complain about one thing. Uffizi has this deadly arsenal of blades, but we usually have to settle for watching blood splatter on the walls rather than see the blades do their dirty work. There's no shortage of that blood, though.

It's hard to offer a new take on the Dracula legend, but this movie does a pretty good job of it. I've certainly seen worse - much, much worse. Seeing Dracula III won't make your life complete, but I think most vampire fans will enjoy it.

A laughable but entertaining vampire flick. June 28 2005
By GreatMovieCriticForever - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I've watched all three of the Dracula trilogies movies going back to 2000 and actually Dracula II Ascension wasn't bad at all, Dracula III is not the worst vampire flick I've seen , there's actually some well thought scenes but the movie has many flaws. One of the best things I can say about it is that it was entertaining, and it was pretty much as I expected. Well first let's get down the bad stuff.

Jason Scott Lee reprising his role as Father Uffizi is just plain horrible. Lee himself Is a mediocre actor to begin with apart from his martial arts stuff, he can't act. every time I see him going into his little Indiana Jones routine of chopping heads of with his whip sends me into a hysteria of laugher.

Roy Scheider is in this film for two minutes as a useless character named Cardinal Siqueros. Now perhaps the biggest con and letdown is that Dracula himself, now played by Rutger Hauer is in this film for about six to twelve minutes!!. What a waste, some more screen time would have helped, although Rutger himself seems to old play this role just like Christopher Lee was during the last Dracula movies.

Before the movie starts we , we get a barrage of clips from the last movie and I have to say that it's horribly edited to the point that I almost died laughing. Jason Scott Lee is such a horrible actor that he made part of this film into a comedy not a horror movie.

The plot says that Uffizi and Luke (Jason London) are still searching for Dracula and Luke's love Elizabeth but this time around they encounter some vampire along with the way, along with some different mutated vampires and a couple of stupid rebels. That's dead on actually. Apparently there a separate group of scum selling villagers as food. Anyhow, Uffizi and Luke rescue some girl named Julia whose a reporter and from there let the vampire killings begin!!!

The action/vampire kills in the movie, are pretty good actually, at least this part is watchable, there's some good setup of suspense and thrills just before every kill.

The movie never gets dull at least, the characters never have too many long lines keeping the action going.

The acting was average to good, Jason London as Luke is more likable than the priest, and he actually does some vampire killings of his own which are done alright, Rutger Hauer in the few minutes he has as Dracula does his best. Again Jason Lee is horrible but he has his moments.

Budget wise, since this was from Dimension the budget seems small but from what I saw it was good enough to present at least a semi watchable vampire film. The movie is definitely nothing I would shell out money for if it came on DVD but if it's on cable or something I might watch it again. Then that is Dracula III The Legacy, it's watchable but just don't expect your socks to be knocked.

It's not that horrible,I actually liked it but by no means is it a horror classic. You're usual vampire flick with it's highs and lows, a 5 out 10 from me
