This was a modernized version based on the characters from the original novel by Bram
Stoker. Here we find Van Helsing still alive in modern times having appointed himself the keeper of Dracula's corpse because Dracula could not truly be killed. Dracula lays prone in a death-like state in a vault and Van Helsing is using Dracula's blood, siphoned through leeches, to keep himself alive for all these years. Then some young hoods steal the coffin thinking it contains valuables and unwittingly help Dracula escape his prison. The ensuing battle between Van Helsing and Dracula to save Van Helsing's daughter from joining the undead leaves behind plenty of corpses. In a surprise conclusion we learn who Dracula really is . . . and in this movie they do not claim he is really Vlad Tepesh, Prince of Wallachia as in most other movies. I realize by the description is sounds like some rehash of an old Hammer film but this movie is slick, well presented and very entertaining. If you like vampire movies it's a great addition to your collection.

First, watch the DVD deleted scenes, extended scenes and audition featuring Gerard Butler. That will get you in the right mood! Then start the film.

The first 30 minutes are a mess. After the opening scenes with Christopher Plummer as Van Helmsing, that lays the groundwork for the story, they could have skipped all the scenes about the stealing of the coffin and just had Plummer tell Simon (Johnny Lee Miller) "we been robbed!".

But the young people and the robbery and taking the coffin by plane and it crashing - all could be handled by voice-over. This is just a mess and not one of the actors are interesting or have any charisma. Especially Solina (Jennifer Esposito) going into the vault, dark and creepy and skulls and gad! you get the picture. We are in for a fright! Bah!!! So lame.

Our first great shot of Dracula (Butler), is on the plane when he walks into the section of the plane and reaches out for Solina - and like any sane woman, she goes right to him. The love bite is next. Um Hmmmm! In the meantime, Mary Van Helsing is having dreams/nightmares seeing Dracula in her mirror. She is speechless, and we are too. OMG! She keeps saying "wake up - you're dreaming" but then he comes close and sniffs her and says "you're real" and I have to pause the film and fan myself.

Troubled Mary goes to the church in New Orleans where the priest is a childhood friend, to get some answers about her Mother and as he is putting the candles out and turns to Mary - it is him, the big D. A gaze to die for. The next is Dracula perched like a gargoyle on the church parapet above the Mardi Gras revelers and he says "Farewell, Princess." Perfect!

Down at street level, he walks among the drunken revelers with a bemused look.

I give this 2.5 stars, and that's mostly because 1. the gimmick/idea that ties together the "whys" of Dracula is interesting and 2. Gerard Butler has amazing screen presence.

The story: Baddies go to steal a hidden treasure (thinking valuable item). This item has been encased and entombed by Van Helsing (yeah, that Van Helsing), the guardian of this particular treasure. As you can guess, it's not jewels or the Holy Grail. It does have to do with blood: Dracula. Baddies get killed/turned. Dracula, who has some kind of psychic connection to Van Helsing's daughter, Mary(estranged from Papa and living in New Orleans pre-Katrina), goes seeking the woman of his dreams. Nothing really interesting or spooky happens. Yes, folks get bitten. Yes, some get killed. Yes, nice guy goes to save Mary from a toothy fate. Sirens do their ho-hum thing to nice guy hero. Dracula has showdown with Mary. And...well...not giving the ending away.

Ultimately, we get a new (to me, anyway) spin on the tale when we find out how Dracula was created, and why silver and sunlight and crucifixes and holy water are feared and hated objects to Vampiredom. It's a somewhat elegant answer, but it can't satisfy for a lackluster preamble to the revelation.

Justine Waddell doesn't do much with her role. Christopher Plummer is rather wasted. Jonny Lee Miller has a few cute lines, but is kind of disposable, if likable. Omar Epps didnt' get a chance to do anything worth watching. (He's much better on HOUSE, where he gets some real characterization and infinitely better dialogue.)

So, there's really only ONE reason to watch this film: Gerard Butler.

After reading some of the other reviews of this movie, I must admit, I was sceptical about how good it would be. Fortunately, though, I was pleasantly surprised. It was great! But then again, I should have known Wes Craven would come through with the goods.

Some people complained that this movie tries to do too much--it has comedy, horror, suspense and a whole lot of other genres thrown in. But those people should stop trying to pigeon hole things, and just learn to sit back and enjoy the ride! And what a ride! Sure, this isn't the greatest movie I've ever seen, but it is VERY entertaining and very well cast. The actors are brilliant, and whilst I was a bit cold towards the actress playing the part of Mary at first, I did warm to her later on as Wes Craven let her develop into what he is so well known for including in his movies: a strong, capable, kick ass female character!

The storyline was true to many aspects of the original Dracula--enough to keep the diehard fans happy, anyway--and whilst at first I wondered about the fact that silver can be used to kill the vamps (I had thought this was only good for slaying werewolves) this aspect was eventually explained very satisfactorily. The only part of the movie I couldn't quite fathom while I was watching it was why Mary would run into a graveyard to try to escape Dracula--wouldn't a church have made a better sanctuary, or anywhere else but a graveyard, for that matter? But then I thought, perhaps she didn't really want to escape him...

I must admit, though, my favourite part of the movie was when Drac said, "I don't drink...coffee." Brilliant!
