Dracula 2000 is a horror film released in the year 2000, directed by Patrick Lussier and produced by Wes Craven. The film stars Gerard Butler, Justine Waddell, and Jonny Lee Miller. The movie begins with a group of thieves led by Marcus (Sean Patrick Thomas) who plan to rob a high-security vault located beneath a church in London. They successfully infiltrate the vault but instead of finding the expected wealth, they come across a locked coffin containing the body of Dracula. The coffin is later transported to the United States, to a building owned by Van Helsing (Christopher Plummer). However, Dracula awakens during the transportation and wreaks havoc on the crew.

The story then takes a turn as a young woman named Mary (Justine Waddell) seeks the help of Van Helsing's estranged assistant, Simon (Jonny Lee Miller), to find her missing father. As they investigate, they discover that Mary is actually a descendant of Van Helsing's arch-nemesis, Dracula. Dracula's resurrection is no accident, and he intends to find Mary in order to destroy Van Helsing, the only one who can stop him.

The film is shot in an intriguing manner that combines contemporary settings with elements of the original Bram Stoker novel, which is refreshing for fans of Dracula. The plot is slow to develop, but that is quickly redeemed by the thrilling action scenes and impressive special effects.

Gerard Butler delivers a fantastic performance as Dracula, capturing the essence of the original character while still making it his own. His portrayal is both seductive and menacing, with a powerful presence on screen that is both captivating and chilling.

Justine Waddell also shines as Mary, conveying the character's inner strength and resolve throughout the film. Her chemistry with Jonny Lee Miller's Simon is palpable, and their performances add depth to the story.

The supporting cast is also noteworthy, with Christopher Plummer's Van Helsing providing a grounded and seasoned presence to the film, and Sean Patrick Thomas adding humor and wit to his role as Marcus.

Overall, Dracula 2000 is a well-executed horror film that effectively blends modern sensibilities with classic horror themes. The performances are solid, the special effects are impressive, and the story is engaging. Fans of horror and action will enjoy this fresh take on the timeless tale of Dracula.
