The Telegraph

By Tim Robey
If they had to give Drac an “origin story” this literal-minded, at least they had the sense to keep it keen and lively, whittled to a point.

San Francisco Chronicle

By Mick LaSalle
No campy vampire movie, and the early part of the film is well-made enough that the sadness of Vlad’s dilemma is truly felt.
