It felt very Disney Channel Original movie.

It turns out my first assumption was correct and it is garbage.

The movie offers 104 minutes of breathless exposition, just one elephant-sized plot dump after another.

The gothic sets and oxblood colour palette are ripped straight from a Heart video. The frenetic pacing, more appropriate, perhaps, for a first-person video game, had me craving a Ritalin Latte.

The young women in the disjointed Vampire Academy are out for blood but the rest of us will be itching for the next available transfusion after witnessing this dismissive, fanged fable.

Vampire Academy is entertaining.

In spite of using the standard elements of a high school drama (read: Mean Girls-meets-The Princess Diaries), Vampire Academy doesn't suck (pun intended)! It's about friendship, high-school crushes, romance and much more.

[Vampire Academy] is cheesy, derivative and filled with simply drawn characters.

Another young-adult adaptation bites the dust.

Vampire Academy is often more fun than many brainless supernatural tween films.

What's saddest of all is that the Gen Y audience this is meant for will be so busy texting during the film they won't notice how poor it is, they'll love it -- and there will be a sequel.

...I hoped for better but am not displeased with slightly messy, campy but funny and entertaining vamp dramedy I got.

It's too transparently a ploy to hook teenage girls by combining vampires, Hogwarts, and princesses, three things that teenage girls presumably adore.
April 23, 2015
A film that attempts to satire the popular love triangle romances of the current day, yet falls into the same tired cliches of said films.
July 27, 2014
The action is underwhelming and the plot muddled, taking so long to explain the saga's complex mythology that there's no time left to flesh out the characters. Which is a shame, as Deutch's heroine has a sassy spark.
July 2, 2014
Rarely have I felt such disconnect between material and the actors tasked with performing it as I did with Mark Waters' Vampire Academy.
March 27, 2014
I died a little bit inside.

Richelle Mead's sharp series of young-adult novels might have been better off being adapted for longform TV, rather than the big-screen blunting they cop here.
March 15, 2014
Joining the painful list of Goth-drenched Twilight franchise wannabes - Mortal Instruments, Beautiful Creatures, Dark Shadows - comes a half-baked, yappy stab at blending sexy Undead girls into a teen high school comedy..Even hardcore Goths will be bored.

I thought it was a complete mess. I thought the teenage dialogue was puerile and that was a shame because Daniel Waters wrote the screenplay for HEATHERS, which is one of the really nice films about school but that was a long time ago.
