The second time Vlad enters the cave, a tarantula can be seen. While creepy, that particular spider is a golden knee tarantula, native of the Chaco region in Argentina, South America. The action takes places in Eastern Europe. See more »
While this movie pretty much ignores the history, it's still a good movie, great CGI, good acting and the ending implies a sequel.
Many have commented that Vlad was not a good guy in real life, hence the historical figures title of the "impaler". The movie does show this in a few scenes but in a interesting if somewhat brief way.
Good action scenes, battles and some gory images, but then as it's Dracula, what do you expect.
If your looking for a movie to just sit back and have fun watching, Dracula Untold is an enjoyable romp with good actors, Charles Dance is impeccable as always and Luke Evans is good as the main character.
