"How much would you be willing to give to save the ones you love?"
Would you be willing to give all the money in your accounts to save your wife? Would you be willing to give an arm or your kidney to revive your child?
You may do one or both of these things, but would you be willing to trade your soul if it meant that the ones you loved would be safe?
Yeah, we know, that's a tough anchovy to scarf down, but fortunately we've got the many talented Luke Evans to do the heavy lifting on our behalf..lol
"Dracula Untold" is everything we knew it would be and more... So now, Let's Unhinge...
Bearing The Soul
When you first dig into this movie, you have the honor of getting to know Vlad(Evans) as a mere man capable of crushing his enemies with the whip of his blade. It is in this human state, this mortal vessel that you learn the very depths of his pain and love for his family. For it is his love for family that spurs his greatest sacrifice yet and that is...
Giving his soul, forgetting about himself to save the people he loves. Now, for most of us family would stop after blood-kin, but for Prince Vlad, he has a whole town of people looking to him for shelter.
At one time, Vlad's gracious embrace was enough to save his people from harm, but now with the threat of the vicious unruly Turks, his bravery wouldn't even make a dent in the voracious army. Vlad must turn to the most threatening forces in the dark to find salvation.
In Vlad's haste to ensure that his family is safe from the threat of the Turks, he seeks one of time's oldest villains, the Vampire. A dark formidable creature that feeds on the night and escapes the rays of the sun. For it is this type of power, this superhuman strength that Vlad will needed to conquer his enemy. Vlad befriends the demonic fiend and becomes draped in the weight of centuries, the pain of millions and the powers of a god.
This is where Vlad's real story begins because even though he has eaten the forbidden fruit, the price of his soul is only the beginning...
Reaping The Rewards
We're just going to put it to you like this, "Dracula Untold" is the movie to see! It's full of deliciously sharp violence and Vlad's dark heart of gold. It's not every film that you cheer for the villain rather than the hero, but in this case, Luke Evans is the exception...
