Okay, listen. This is Wes Craven we're talking here. It's not Shakespeare, and we're not expecting Oscars. However, this is a take on the source material that fits so much of the Lore that surrounds it, it almost begs to be taken perfectly serious.

It's not, of course. It's a fun, sexy, modern Vampire film, and nothing more. If you're expecting more than that... what Genre are you really interested in, because this is not the Genre to take that seriously.

This, also, happens to be among my favourite films of all time. This DVD, unfortunately, is the result of this film having bad Box Office numbers, and poor reception from critics. So, the DVD itself is somewhat lacking, in modern times. It contains the Film, some Deleted/Extended Scenes, and a few other odds and ends. In a time we're so used to documentaries, and behind-the-scenes research being put into a DVD set, this is not a full experience for anyone. But, for its time, and considering the circumstances, this DVD is exactly what you're looking for if you're a fan of this Movie. I know I am.

Is it a remake, a retelling, a reboot? Who knows? One thing is certain: Dimension had a success with Scream and tried to duplicate it in every project they had until it worked no more.

But before the formula stalled, Dracula 2000 was a lukewarm effort to try and update the Dracula myth with other characters and a VERY young and skinny Gerard Butler. To be honest, there was nothing surprising in this movie even when I saw it in theatres waaay back in 2000. And it hasn't changed much since. Mildly good special effects and make-up and low gore and eroticism are part of the ingredients of this program, although the actors do give a nice performance in unidimensional roles.

First of a (probably) unplanned trilogy, this effort was the most worthy since it's all downhill from here. I bought it and quite liked it even though it didn't reinvent the wheel.

This movie suffers from the classic issue of having a great concept and a great cast, but failing to exploit either. What could have been a really cool premise was explored in miniscule flashbacks (the best parts of the movie) which were sacrificed to focus on standard vampire-attack gore. And if you watch the accompanying actor auditions, you will be dismayed to find that Gerard Butler's most emphatic feature (his startling blue eyes), were squelched with muddy brown contacts in the film, which looked bad and did nothing to help out his performance (which was better than the film deserved). I don't know why producers think audiences are too shallow to appreciate anything resembling a serious script, but this film demonstrated it could have had a very effective one and dropped the ball.

Okay I didn't expect this to be a masterpiece and I was right. It was entertaining and with a better cast and better script could have been more. Also the element that I tend to dislike in horror films was present here. That is that you know not only that the bad guy will be defeated, but that he is painted as ONLY being bad. This ends up making your baddie far too 2D, and we don't see them as a whole person (or rather vampire). This film gets big kudos for originality of who Dracula is, and where he comes from. I didn't like Van Helsing, and thought him being there was a waste of time. He is the one, who is looking after Dracula, but this could have been done in a different way, it is not too important a point.
The film begins, (well in truth, I missed the first 5 minutes) with Simon who works for Van Helsing. Solina (VH's assistant) and her friends break into the cellar because they expect to find money/jewels/art what with VH's tight security. What they find, is a booby-trapped room with an antique metal coffin. They steal it and escape (in a plane for some unknown reason). Nightshade is given the job of opening the coffin, (a hard task indeed) and inside is Dracula. He proceeds to kill everyone on the plane. This is unimportant but I am telling it to you because we then see our heroine Mary, she sees this. Sees Dracula and he, her in a mixture of dream/illusion and perhaps astral projection. In the meantime, VH is explaining to Simon that Dracula is not myth but reality. That he is THE Van Helsing of long ago and has been keeping himself alive, (injecting Dracula's blood) until he can discover a way to kill him. Many events happen but they are not worth mentioning, because you wish to read a review not a list of events. I will mention a few more things though.

One of the special features on the DVD is the auditions for some of the lead actors. Gerard Butler, the dashing actor who plays Dracula, shows an intensity and fire rarely captured in the vampire heretofore. Granted, Christopher Lee will probably always be the best for invoking the sheer terror of the count, but Butler brings a subtle humanity to the monster, and it is his performance that buoys this Wes Craven production.
Suffice to say, Dracula has been done so many times, it's hard to think of anything original to do with the story. However, screenwriter Joel Soisson gives a fresh take to the legacy of Dracula. It explains the count's aversion to crosses, wood, silver and anything Christian. No spoiler am I, but by the end of the movie, Butler's Dracula is a pitiable victim of his own jealousy, and the need to be forgiven for his greatest transgression. Butler's performance cannot be discounted, folks..he's truly magnificent.
Jonny Lee Miller, Christopher Plummer, and Justine Waddel acquit themselves admirably, and Lussier's direction is sufficiently moody. But it's Butler who commands the show.
