Trivia

Alternate versions and Deleted scenes from the DVD include: An extended version of the final confrontation between Dracula and Van Helsing. An alternate version of the scene where Dracula attacks Valerie at the site of the plane crash. In this version he can be seen rising from the swamp behind her. He also says the line which could only be heard in the previews, "There are things much worse than death". A longer and much more dramatic version of the scene where Dracula talks to the Jesus on the neon cross. Dracula explains how he feels that he was the one who was betrayed. A longer version of the scene where Van Helsing and his accomplices trap Dracula in London. This was originally the opening scene to the film. A scene where vampire Val approaches Simon before leading him into the crowded streets of New Orleans during Mardi Gras. During the Judas fantasy sequence, Mary walks up to Dracula while he's hanging from a tree. The rope around his neck breaks and he attacks Mary. After finding her father, Mary walks out into the hallway where she meets vampire Lucy for the first time. This was replaced by the scene where the hallway becomes longer and Mary is approached by all three vampire brides instead of just Lucy. See more »

Fast, fun decent vampire flick
26 December 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The story is very convoluted but it comes down to Dracula (Gerard Butler) is search of Van Helsing's (Christopher Plummer) daughter Mary (Justine Waddell) in modern day New Orleans.

Let's get the negatives out of the way: Jonny Lee Miller is TERRIBLE; Plummer's accent is pretty obviously fake; there's far too much product placement for Virgin Records and the vampires crack terrible jokes. All that aside the movie is quick, it's fun, beautifully and atmospherically shot. The script is interesting--it gives Dracula a new origin which fits but is pretty silly too. Dracula is a reanimated corpse...trying to give him a different origin is pretty dumb. Also, crosses don't affect vampires anymore...it just annoys them. Also there's plenty of blood and violence on hand and erotic sexual seduction by Dracula.

With the sole exception of Miller the acting is good. Plummer works (despite the accent); Omar Epps is having a whale of a time; Justine Wadell is good and Esposito, Ryan and Fitzpatrick make a good team of scary (and sexy) vampires. Gerard Butler is fantastic as Dracula. He's young, VERY handsome, has curly black hair and a buff body. Also he portrays Dracula's sexuality and violence very well.

So a slick, fast-moving and fun vampire movie. Worth catching.
