Vampire Academy Review. Pales To Excite & Keep Our Attention

Vampire Academy Review
By April Faith Spice

Vampire Academy will probably please the avid fan's of the widely popular YA Book series by the same name, but to someone who isn't familiar with the story it pales to excite and keep attention. While reminding us several times that it is indeed not "Twilight" it still cast's a main character that looks and broods remarkably like "Edward Cullen" (Dominic Sherwood as Christian Ozera) and features quite a few panning tree shots that even my Jr. High age daughter said, "This looks like Twilight".


Vampire Academy takes place at St. Vladimir’s, a hidden boarding school attended by Moroi (nice vampires who can come out in the day) and Dhampir (half-vampire/half-human guardians who are trained to protect the members of the 12 Moroi families). Rose Hathaway (Zoey Duetch) is a Dhampir gauardian to Moroi princess Lissa (Lucy Fry) who are on the run when they are caught and brought back to St. Vladimir's. Then ensues a story mixed between X-Men, Harry Potter and Mean Girls. (Fitting since the director Mark Watters, also directed Mean Girls). There is a plot to kill the princess, lot's of training for Rose to protect her properly and various high school hazing scheme's.


The best parts of the movie are most defintely Zoey Deutch and her witty comeback's and "Mean Girl" esq jokes and Sarah Hyland who play's geeky Moroi Vampire Natalie. Lucy Fry (Lissa) leaves behind an utterly boring performance, but who knows, maybe her character is just as boring in the books. The ADR was pretty terrible and fight sequences seemed pretty forced.


While I didn't completely hate the movie, It is not one I find myself wanting to see again or even care if the following movies are made to further the story. I thought that maybe I would be more interested in finishing the book series once I saw it, but sadly that was not the case.



I think if you have teenage girls who are wanting to see a movie this weekend, this one will not disappoint them, There are hot boys and witty dialogue. My Jr High daughter enjoyed it, but when a theater laughs after characters are tortured, I'm assuming that is not a good sign as far as how the box office numbers are going to turn out!

Vampire Academy is rated PG-13
