    A reviewer

    It seems that in modern movies, people love to put their own twist on great, classical stories. The victim here, is the great novel by Bram Stoker: Dracula. I decided to watch the movie because I heard it was good and because of all the stars in it boy, I was wrong. I thought it would be even better to watch it at night to make it seem a little more spooky boy, I was wrong. Keanu Reeves isn't bad until he actually meets Dracula Reeves' accent is unbearable and he really couldn't act. I was excited to see Gary Oldman as Dracula, but my heart sank into my bowels when I first caught sight of him. Dracula, according to Coppola, is the long-lost twin brother of Darth Sidious. Dracula also wears an Amadeus wig complete with a three-foot rattail. Instead of being the humble and welcoming man in Stoker's novel, Dracula immediately comes off as creepy and otherworldly. Harker has got to know by now that this guy isn't normal. The women slaves of Dracula don't seduce Harker, but rather just give it to him straight up and he doesn't resist one bit. Soon after Harker's escape from the castle is when I fell asleep: Instead of scaring me, the movie bored me. I'm sorry, but I don't even think that van Helsing was any good, even though he was played by Anthony Hopkins. One scene that sticks out in my mind as ridiculous was when Dracula finally had Lucy in his grasp. Instead of biting her on the neck, like Lugosi or Lee would have, he changes into a werewolf and has his way with her. what the deuce? I thought he was supposed to enslave women, not impregnate them with furry children. I swear, I was waiting for him to howl with pleasure. When Dracula finally turns into a young buck, he looks more like Led Zeppelin drummer, John Bonham than a debonair gentleman. He also wears blue sunglasses that make him look like he went to Woodstock before London. I finally woke up at the end, and of course, Dracula was slain, but Mina seemed to actually be sad. Was there a sick love affair going on between these two? I don't think I want to know. I am euphoric that Mel Brooks made a spoof of Dracula, and it was much more enjoyable.

    The book was a classic, the movies leaves something to be desired

    I watched this movie because I greatly enjoyed the original book. To say that I was disapointed with the outcome of this movie would be an understatement. The changes between the movie and the book are marked and obvious. The amount of sexual content was amazing. Content wise this is not all that great of a movie. However, the costumes special effects and so on are incredible. Anthony Hopkins does an exelent Van Helsing and Winona Ryder fits into her character like a second skin. Bottom line: Don't watch this because you liked the book, if you like special effects or lots of sexual junk this is the movie for you
