Customer Reviews

I think the actors and the actresses they got to play each of these roles did a superb job.
Mystical Manuscripts
Dimitri struggled with portraying the character of the book, and rose was beyond annoying, not to mention she was nothing like the book portrayed her to be.
Tamara
Really liked the book and knew the movie was going to bad, but I didn't think it would be this bad!

I am reader of the Vampire Academy series (but its been awhile). I saw the movie with some friends who never read about the books. My two friends were skeptical about enjoying the movie, but willing to go. Personally, I was anxious about how well it was done. At the end of the movie, my friends' opinions changed. My friends loved the movie. I was more than happy that I chose to go on the release night.

Don't expect my review to be perfect, but I am trying: I believe the movie was a good adaption of the book. For book readers, remember it is an adaption from book to movie, which are not the exact same types of media. Some scenes or the plot line order (such as "explaining" the character types/powers) are slightly different on the movie screen vs in the book. Like all book-to-movies, some things were cut out the film that are in the book, but a movie shouldn't be 3+ hours long. I think they made good choices on the actors/actresses and they match the character descriptions. The movie definitely maintained the Vampire Academy portrayal. Overall, the movie has kept up with the reputation of the book- great and/or excellent!!!

For people who have NOT read the series: The beginning of the movie may be confusing, but it gets clarified. Don't walk out of the movie within the first 15 minutes. The first few opening scenes will seem strange, and misguide you into thinking it's some kind of YA thriller movie. Buts its how the author wrote the book. After that, it keeps to the environment/style that its trying to portray.

As for categorizing the movie: Its definitely a young adult movie. It has action, comedy, sci-fi/fantasy, and drama ALL in one. Many people think any YA vampire movie is "just another Twilight movie" [Twilight= YA fantasy drama movie].

Last week I went to see the latest Jack Ryan movie and one of the previews was...Vampire Academy! While my sister and I were doing this ridiculous fist bump routine a man down the aisle said (loudly), "I have no interest in seeing that." Ha! You missed out cranky old man because I loved it!

Right off the bat we're hit with background on Richelle Mead's world of vampires. There's no way around a big info dump, so that's fine. Rose and Lissa have a bond beyond the mystical, they're best friends and that comes across in the movie. Dimitri comes across too. Seriously, he has a huge presence in every scene he's in. Lissa's accent took a couple minutes to adjust to and there were a few curious casting choices like fire starter Christian. My version of him is a tad less hot, or at least much angstier. And my version of Christian does not have an accent unless you consider hostility an accent.

The mystery isn't so mysterious since I read the books. There's a bully lurking around campus writing threatening messages in blood. And there's an awful classmate. She's more on the pipsqueak side of things. I really hated her in the books, but I just wanted to put her in a time-out in the movie. Rose has some terrific lines and delivers them perfectly. I loved the self-deprecating humor, that was spot on with the books.

If you're a die hard VA fan, I'm not sure what your take on the movie will be. There are a couple change ups and like always some of the best parts are either cut or abbreviated, but Rose rocks and she is the star. Dimitri makes you swoon. Lissa can be annoying, but she annoyed me in the books too. Christian needs a shirtless scene in the next movie. I think the action and storyline will only get better over the span of the movie franchise if there will be a movie franchise. There is no lurking scene after the credits roll, but I wanted one because I wanted more. That says a lot right there. I hope you enjoy the movie too!

I’m an avid reader of books (vampire and otherwise) and I have been a fan of this series for some time. I was pleasantly surprised at how well they captured what Richelle Mead was trying to do in her story. It has mystery, drama, suspense, comedy, and action just like the books. It cannot be pigeon-holed into one category. This movie truly has everything. That being said, it is at its essence a story about friendship and loyalty and the Waters brothers did not lose focus of that. Deutch really delivers as Rose with her wit and bravado underscored by inner turmoil and Fry captures the princess’ instability perfectly. Danila Kozlovsky as Dimitri makes you want to swoon in every scene he’s in and Sarah Hyland does an amazing performance as Natalie. Truly, the entire cast made the movie from the smallest part to the leads. They captured all of the drama that the first book delivers as the characters are beginning to come to terms with their bond and the consequences of it. But it isn’t all teenage angst. It has humor, budding romance, and plenty of action. For fans of the book, they won’t be disappointed in how faithful the movie is not only to the essence of the story but also in the inclusion of many familiar scenes. Though some parts were changed around a bit and a few new scenes added, it was done to the benefit of the viewer and in no way lessened the experience. I was especially excited with the ending because of a surprise scene that Romitri fans should enjoy and also because they left open a possibility for future movies. They alluded to what is to come and made me look forward to seeing the rest of the story unfold onscreen. Definitely a must see movie and for me, a must see again and again.
