Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Dracula Untold serves as the legendary vampire's origin story -- as well as a reboot of Universal Studios' series of classic monster movies. It's more of a war movie than a horror movie, with tons of fighting with both fists and swords, but very little blood is shown (pretty surprising/unrealistic, considering that arms are chopped off and characters are impaled...). There are some jump-shock scenes in which vampires suddenly attack. A character drinks blood from a broken skull. A married couple kisses passionately; they start to have sex but stop. The man is shown shirtless, and the woman wears a dress that emphasizes her cleavage. A woman and a young boy are the victims of violence and oppression.
A married couple kisses passionately. In an early scene, the man pulls the woman into the bathtub with him. In a later scene, she initiates sex, and they kiss and touch, but he pulls away. The male character is shown shirtless in several scenes, and the female character wears a dress that emphasizes her cleavage.
Heavy fantasy violence, with lots of battles, sword-fighting, fist-fighting, and death. Vampires attack with quick, jump-shock movements. A character's arms are sliced off, shown very quickly. Characters are shown impaled on spears. But considering all of that, very little blood is shown -- though a character does drink blood out of a broken skull. The main character is continually "burned" with silver and sunlight. Young boys are enslaved and put to work as soldiers; a woman is punched in the stomach.
A re-telling of the Faust legend -- in which a character makes an unholy deal for great power, with a terrible price. Faustian deals don't often come up in real life, but the idea still gives you something to think about.
