VERDICT – 1/5

 
PROS –
1) Gary Oldman’s performance as Count Dracula stands out. The entire movie is sympathetic to Dracula making it more of a romantic film.

 

 
CONS –
1) The terrible casting of Keanu Reeves and Winona Ryder in the lead roles.
2) Incoherent screenplay and bad acting. Even a veteran like Anthony Hopkins playing Van Helsing can’t do any justice to his character with such bad writing.
