Dracula ★★★

Wild and ambitious in its production and technical aspects, the story falls very flat for me until the very last scene which keeps my opinion on Coppola’s Dracula from being a negative one. 

It’s not that it’s the story per se but the execution of it, like I said until the very final scene between Mina and Dracula. Maybe because I wasn’t in tune with how the film was reaching that conclusion? Which I did think was great. 

Also the pacing dragged for me quite a bit. Keanu and to a lesser extent Ryder, felt outta place in comparison to Oldman and Hopkins. Still I give Francis a lot of props for going for it with this movie even if I don’t think he nailed it.
