Dracula's Legacy is a 2000 horror film directed by Patrick Lussier. The film is set in London and in New Orleans. An elderly antiquarian hiding in his home, locked up in a tomb Dracula. A group of thieves, however, frees him and from there began a long trail of blood. The film tries several times to hit the viewer twisting the reality with the dream, but fails just managing to bore him. Besides this, he can not even scare or disturb public lil because of certain scenes that despite seek to frighten, make you laugh.
Vampire films always have the potential to be good, but "Dracula 2000" is not among the ones that deliver. It starts off promising enough - you have Christopher Plummer as an aged but likeable Van Helsing, and some of the suspense scenes in the beginning are kinda fun. But as the movie goes on, it ultimately **** itself dry with stupidity. Dracula should be a very menacing and imposing character - Gerard Butler's version just looks like a rich guy in a night club. The other vampires should be frightening and disturbing - instead, we get boring guys and dumb, over-sexed women ones. Plummer's character, the most promising, is killed off before he does much of anything, and it's left up to his young . . . (apprentice?) . . . to enter this conflict with comparatively little convincing shock or fear, use tricks that we never find out how he knows, and basically kick two vampire's asses while otherwise getting lamely thrown, beaten and disarmed (seriously, can't he hold onto that gun just ONCE?). Van Helsing's daughter is pretty but boring, and ultimately it all culminates into a completely over-the-top finale where - wait, since WHEN THE HELL is Dracula actually Judas Iscariot? REALLY? And he gets hung from an electronic church cross in a ridiculously overdone death? Do yourself a favor and look for better fare - there's little good blood in this pale treatment.
