Francis Ford Coppola’s version of Bram Stoker’s Dracula is a double offender, in the sense that both Keanu Reeves and Winona Ryder come up short in the accent (and, some might argue, acting) department. His Victorian lawyer Jonathan Harker (just listen to his “Bloody wolves chasing me!” to say nothing of the way he pronounces Budapest when reading from his diary) and her Mina Murray/Elisabeta (the “surrounded by majestic mountains, lush vineyards” speech in the absinthe scene is a hoot) are both — ahem — bloody awful. And it could have possibly been avoided if they’d consulted with those great British thespians in the movie, Gary Oldman, Anthony Hopkins and Richard E. Grant. Instead, we’re left with a literal horror show.
