Author Richelle Mead's New York Times bestseller makes the leap to the big screen, telling the story of Rose Hathaway (Zoey Deutch), a vampire/human hybrid tasked with protecting a benevolent breed of mortal vampires known as the Moroi from a race of ruthless, eternal bloodsuckers known as the Strigoi.~Jason Buchanan

Loved it enough to buy it!
Owned for 1 week when reviewed.
Loved the book series so I thought I’d give the movie a try. It wasn’t too bad. I enjoyed watching it multiple times when I was in the mood for teen movies.
My favorite books are the vampire academy series, and I had been counting down the days until this movie was made and released. I loved the casting and how they did it. I wish they had added a bit more from the books since it went by so fast, especially to help hose who hadn't read the books understand a bit better. But still, great movie.
Finally a vampire movie with no sparkles. Movie is a good refresher from the sparkly films. This film features a cast of newbies along with well known actors. The film does live up to the ad, from the director of Mean Girls and the writer of Heathers, it does feel like a mixture of those two films with vampires thrown in.
I loved the character that was the focus of the movie. It did not follow the book from that standpoint that both were supposed to be coequal in the story. Fun and fast paced. Some good humor. I wish the movie had done bigger box office as i would love to see the series progress on screen with these characters.
The only thing i wish was different woukd be a dvd combo, but i got it on.sale for 15 dollars on day one, most amazing deal for this must own flick, i saw this in theatres twice and it looks just as amaxing at home, it sticks pretty close to the book as well i hooe they make more it ends with the ability to add on as well lets hope they cover the other books, the actors they chose were amazing and perfect for the characters, if you see this on the shelves definatly pick it up and watch watch watch it again.
This campy feature, takes place in a boarding school for vampire teens, and their protectors. We have royal vampires, good vampires, and of course the bad. The plot was predictable, but this movie is a good escape from the real world, and does not necessarily require your full attention.
