This film is intended to be the start of a reboot of Universal Studio's "Monsters Universe" that was popular back in the 1930s and 1940s with films like Dracula, Frankenstein, The Invisible Man, The Mummy, and The Wolf Man. It was later revealed Dracula Untold would not be part of the reboot series. See more »
Vlad never ruled in Transylvania. He ruled in the neighboring country, Valahia. The Cozia Monastery is in Valahia, it did exist in Vlad's lifetime, but is was not fortified and not likely to be use during wars, as the place does not have a real military value. Most likely during wars Vlad would retreat to Poenari fortress, a place not mentioned in the film, but much closer to Vlad's capital than Cozia Monastery. See more »

It's not about the historical Dracula, it's about a new story
For all who says that this movie is bad because it doesn't follow the Dracula story we all know from the past I say, it's not suppose to. When I sit down to watch a movie there's one thing that matter in the end: Did I or Did I not enjoy the movie? And this movie was definitely enjoyable and fun.
Manny reviewers say that this is a bad movie because it doesn't follow the historical time-line and details of the characters in it. Ultimately I really don't care, it's a fiction movie, not a documentary about the history of...
I even read, in a 3/10 star review, a reviewer that says the movie is bad because of historical falsies. That reviewer wrote in his comment : "The film might captivate some audiences who are looking for a fun time, but there is nothing memorable or legendary about it." isn't that all a movie should be about? Having a fun time is what I came for...
Dracula Untold isn't related in any aspect to the old Dracula story. It is a story of its' own and a very good one to. I think that the directors and the script writers did an excellent job writing a different side to the Dracula story.
So, for those who care about the chronicles of Dracula and close their mind to a different story don't watch this movie. But, if you're looking for a fun fiction story this is a fantastic movie.
I gave it 8/10 stars because it could have been better.
Overall this movie is seriously underrated.
