Critic Reviews for Dracula: Season 1

All Critics (47) | Top Critics (25)

The series gets us rooting for [Dracula] in his war against a powerful group that is dedicated to eliminating vampires, but our enthusiasm is lessened by the fact that he is, after all, draining the blood of innocent people.

The first five episodes of Dracula, although unwieldy and murky at times, flex just enough storytelling power to keep the juices flowing.

Drac's mission will be driving this story, which means we need a commanding presence at the center. Rhys Meyers plays it more subtly. That's a valid acting choice. It just doesn't make the story as bloody good as it might be.

Unless you are sick of vampires -- a possibility -- this is not bad at all.

All this nuttiness doesn't take into account Dracula's most dangerous weapon: boredom. Bosoms heave, teeth are gritted, fangs are bared -- but every moment of pulpy excess is drowned in interminable scenes of speechifying and ballroom dancing.

Unfortunately, this Dracula isn't fun at all. It's not really scary, either, although it does spill a lot of blood. What it is, unfortunately, is dull, and that flaw could be fatal.
