Added DiffLines:

* JerkassWoobie: Dracula may be AxCrazy and cruel, but it clearly stems from a combination of his DespairEventHorizon-induced insanity in the intro and a ThenLetMeBeEvil mindset associated with his subsequent FaithHeelTurn, and he still hasn't completely lost his humanity.

* Designated Hero:
** Mina, unlike her book counterpart, makes a number of bad decisions that hurt those around her for a man she's just met and is cheating on Jonathan to be with.
** van Helsing, also unlike his book counterpart, is also kind of a dick, more excited with being proved correct about the supernatural than the suffering and misery of his friends.

* BrokenBase: While many people agree it's a good film, Mina and Dracula being LoveInterests is not a good idea if you DON'T want backlash from fans of the book...or anyone who does not like the idea of vampire romance. However, many people in fact favor this couple over Mina/Jonathan.
** Which is not helped by the people who just hate the idea of Dracula, the definition of the blood sucking vampires, being portrayed sympathetically especially since he still kills people. Others, however, like this idea and thinks Dracula should have sympathetic qualities.

Mina/Jonathan. Which is not helped by the people who just hate the idea of Dracula, the definition of the blood sucking vampires, being portrayed sympathetically especially since he still kills people. Others, however, like this idea and thinks Dracula should have sympathetic qualities. Even those who like the ''idea'' often dispute whether or not it was actually well-handled.

* RomanticPlotTumor: One of the biggest. How much you like the film depends in part on how you feel about the romance (and how [[StupidSexyFlanders annoyingly sexy]] you find [[EvenTheGuysWantHim Gary Oldman]]).
** Extra {{squick}}y because the original attacks from the vampire were clearly meant to invoke ''rape''.

Added DiffLines:

* TheScrappy: Mina comes across as pretty unsympathetic, especially because Jonathan is such a loving and devoted husband while she openly longs to be with Dracula.

* AdaptationDisplacement: To this day there are negative reviews in pages like Amazon criticizing the book for not having any of the romance this movie had.
