I'm a huge VA fan and loved the movie! We have to rally together as fans so that we can have a second film!
Go see it!!
Zoey is the perfect Rose. It was well casted, had a great pace, and was hilarious!!

My Dad and I saw this movie on opening day and it was terrific! Even my Dad enjoyed it. I've read the book and I thought that the movie was right on track with it. This movie has action, humor, sexiness, smarts, an excellent soundtrack, and (of course) some blood sucking. What more could you ask for?
Amazon.com already has this movie available for pre-order. I'm headed there now. I can't wait to watch it again. I definitely recommend this movie.

I literally just got back from the theater and I have to say that it was amazing! Very few things were changed from the book to the screen which was really pleasing. The cast did an amazing job portraying their characters! The relationship between Dimitri and Rose was really well scripted and it just made me fangirl so hard during the movie. "Rose. Rose. My Rose." All of you who saw the movie know what I'm talking about ;) I am eagerly waiting for there to be an announcement claiming that a sequel is in the works!
Okay, I'm off to read the series again!
Seriously though..... GO WATCH THE MOVIE!

I really did want to like this movie since I have all of the books and enjoyed them, but it's just an example of how to screw up a potentially great film with shockingly lazy film-making. From poor casting choices to wholesale plot changes (for no good reason), endless exposition and terrible editing; this movie does almost nothing to live up to the book. If you've never read the book then perhaps you might enjoy this more but I honestly doubt it.
I do feel the movie could have been much better if only given a better editing job; at 1Hr 44min it's fairly short by modern standards and I seriously doubt anybody would be complaining if it were 30 minutes longer (provided those 30 minutes were put to good use in removing the need for the endless exposition). Some of the actors grew on me a little as things progressed but there were some very poor casting choices and poor acting as a consequence.
It isn't irredeemably bad but it could have been so much better. Overall disappointing.

I wasn't expecting much out of this, but it was a really great watch! Zoey Deutch was a great Rose and even wittier than Book!Rose. There were a few tweaks from the book that I wasn't totally happy with, but overall it did a great job of keeping with the book. It was very fast-paced, though! Not yet sure if that was a good or bad thing. It almost felt like the actors were running a marathon the banter was so back-and-forth.
