Vampire Academy

Critics Consensus

Though it may appeal to its built-in fanbase, Vampire Academy's Twilight-meets-Mean Girls conceit borrows lazily from its predecessors and offers few laughs or thrills to complement its overstuffed backstory.

Critic Reviews for Vampire Academy

All Critics (55) | Top Critics (11)

  • This is a garbage heap of weak quips, delivered by an assortment of pretty boys and girls and amped up with some cheesy moments of animal cruelty.

  • Not only plays like the crassest possible mashup of "Harry Potter" and "Twilight" elements, but seems designed to make those franchises look like eternal monuments of world culture by comparison.

  • This attempt to capture the magic of the "Twilight" and "Harry Potter" franchises tries too hard to pack all the backstory and borrowings into one film.

    Feb 9, 2014 | Full Review…
  • [Mr. Waters] doesn't seem especially interested in the supernatural parts of "Vampire Academy," and he clearly didn't have the budget to make what little hocus-pocus there is magical.

    Feb 9, 2014 | Full Review…
  • Ultimately more "Meaningless" than "Mean Girls," "Vampire Academy" is a busy, overcomplicated empowerment fantasy with more hormones than brain cells.

  • The only thing that distinguishes this teen-magnet wannabe from its predecessors is how lazily it appears to have been slapped together.

Audience Reviews for Vampire Academy

A profoundly poorly acted and written plot that leaves much to be desired. The few snorts of giggles aren't enough to stop this movie from dragging!

The banter and back-story may be a bit too hastily presented to be entirely effective, but I still found the film entertaining and surprisingly funny.

This was freaking awful, and not in a good way. I could barely follow it, and I read and enjoyed the series when it first came out. Lots of dumb action and woefully miscast. I did not picture Dimitri like that at all, and as soon as someone I watched this with said that Rose was acting like Kat Dennings's 2 Broke girls character, Max, it was all I could hear. (And I like 2bg).
