Bram Stoker's Dracula is a lovingly made, gorgeously realized, meticulously crafted failure. It has big names, a big budget, big sets, a big, thundering score and even big hair. But it doesn't do it. It doesn't excite or fascinate but just lies there on the screen. [13 Nov 1992, p. C1] show more
Francis Ford Coppola's lavish version of Bram Stoker's classic novel is a visual cornucopia, overstuffed with images of both beauty and grotesque horror. show more
Oldman and Ryder and Hopkins pant with eagerness. The movie is an exercise in feverish excess, and for that if for little else, I enjoyed it. show more

Buy this one, for high romanticism and sexuality. What woman isn't transfixed by a man hung between death and life who can change in to bats, rats and fly away with you. Oldman is transfomed into young Count Dracul to stalk Winona. He seeths eccentricity and sexiness with the wig and top hat. Made Keanu seem like Navy beans as her husband. Go with the dangerous guy Winona!. Cinematography, directing, beautiful and over the top, makes Anthony Hopkins seem dashing. I nearly, well I did cry during the getaway with the horses, breathtaking and the "Redemption" scene at the end. Lets get a sequel on this one. Loved Cary Elwes too in this one. (Hot Tamale!) and I'm 65. Great ensemble cast..
