Even though the movie stays some-what true to Bram Stoker's classic book, the movie fails to bring any suspense or surprises to the table (Keanu Reeves still sucks at acting).

It is hard, however, to look away from the brilliant costumes, make-up, and set designs. The film is great to look at, but the chilling mood from the book is still absent. Expand

Francis Ford Coppola's take on Bram Stoker's Dracula.
Even though it has a fantastic cast, it's all a bit shallow. Anthony Hopkins & Tom Waits come away with decent performances but the rest of the cast are a bit like cardboard cutouts.

I saw this at the cinema when it first came out & thought it was average then. Gary Oldman is my favourite actor but this film doesn't do him any favours & the less said about Keanu Reeves & Winona Ryder the better.
Considering it's a love story, you don't feel for any of the lead characters at all.

The plot is not the focus point of the film, so anyone who is looking for a story that will immerse them and take them on a journey will be surely disappointed.

The film is backed by a good cast and good directing, but it's writing falls short. Its a feast for the eyes but not very stimulating it terms of plot. It's not terrible, just mediocre. I feel as though it doesn't take as much from the book as it should have. Also, Dracula's beehive hair, need I say more? But even with that, the art director for this film deserves an oscar, it looks beautiful.

The film is disappointing all around. But the visuals bring it up from a 4 to a 5.
