Vlad III was not known as Vlad the Impaler during his life, but was rather given the nickname posthumously. Therefore, he would never have been called this by anybody, as he is several times in this movie. See more »
This movie is supposed to be entertaining, and because it succeeded in that regard as far as I am concerned, it's a very good movie.
This is the kind of movie you should watch with a glass of beer in your hand. Enjoy the story for what it is and drink your beer. If you approach this movie with an analytic mind, you're probably not going to enjoy it. The plot's got more holes in it than a Swiss cheese and it shouldn't be treated as a deep, psychological study of the human mind.
Who the heck has the patience for that?
Just enjoy it on a basic, emotional level and I'm sure you'll have a good time.
