Worst scene: The climax in which the zero-dimensional Turkish bad guy played by the only British actor who would take the job reveals that Dracula's very temporary weakness is coins.
Why it's so bad it's just bad: "Dracula Untold" doesn't even make it to 90 minutes of actual narrative time, despite a grafted on reshot ending to perpetuate a Universal Monster Franchise that may never exist. There are no supporting characters, Dracula's powers consist of turning into bats over and over and over again and Dracula's adversary is Dominic Cooper with eyeliner. "Dracula Untold" isn't vaguely scary, it isn't especially exciting and it certainly isn't enlightening as an origin story/character piece.
