Good Movie; Great adaptation

I was a little worried about this movie being too comical, but I wanted to watch it before I made my judgement. As an adaptation, it was amazing. It is as close to the actual book as Catching Fire was. As for the movie itself, it was the right amount of seriousness and comedy. The plot was interesting and mostly original and the actors did an amazing job. It has vampires and a few romances, but unlike Twilight, this movie's main focus was on friendship and loyalty (without being too warm and fuzzy). It has quite a bit of action and has scenes that will appeal to male viewers (my boyfriend was impressed by the movie overall). I highly suggest ignoring the trailers, posters, etc. and go see what the movie is REALLY about. BTW: Some people were saying that Vampire Academy would be Mean Girls with vampires. Although there are a few similarities (like an occasional voice over from the main character), Vampire Academy is its own movie.

way better than i thought it was going to be, poor trailers... MUCH better watching the whole thing. VERY close to the books and story line. the overall acting is very close to what i pictured in the books. the actual faces... not so much. this was definitely a guilty pleasure even for those who haven't read the books. a little bit of everything. Action, adventure, paranormal, comedy, romance, mystery, drama... quite fulfilling if you ask me

Better Than I expected...

My 13 year old daughter wanted to see it for her birthday, even though my thought was that it was just another ripoff of Twilight, Harry Potter and The Hunger Games, I acquiesce to her wishes and go. Surprisingly, the story was something to pay attention to from the very start. Now I cant wait to see the next movie and get this one on DVD. BTW, if you have daughters into these actors and musicians, be forewarned of a new actor, in this film, may get your daughters mouths dropping. He's the lead male actor in this movie, Danila Kozlovsky, he portrays Dimitri Belikov, the vampire in charge of security, in a sense. He's Russian born, and in this movie long-ish hair. Between the hair, muscles and accent, my daughter, was swooning, for lack of a better term, over this guy. BE AWARE, fellow fathers.

If you are expecting it to be 100% like the book then you will be upset. But It is very close to the book and I think it is over all a really great movie. It all was done really well. The actors are perfect choices are really brought this movie to life. If you are a true fan of the series you will enjoy it , you really can get into this movie and if you go with some of your best friends that makes it all the better. It is truly a movie worth seeing over and over. I loved how the friendship between Rose and Lissa was portrayed and I loved they way the did the scenes with the bond. It is a great start to a wonderful series and It is a much better story then twilight. So tell everyone you know about this movie and go see it. It hits all the emotions and it really feels like a high school setting but adds a funny twist. I highly recommend this movie! It is very much worth it so grab someone close to you and go and see it! you wont be sorry you did! So glad that this movie is finally out
