Storyline

Rose Hathaway is a dhampir, half-vampire and half-human, who is training to be a guardian at St Vladimir's Academy along with many others like her. There are good and bad vampires in their world: Moroi, who co-exist peacefully among the humans and only take blood from donors, and also possess the ability to control one of the four elements - water, earth, fire or air; and Strigoi, blood-sucking, evil vampires who drink to kill. Rose and other dhampir guardians are trained to protect Moroi and kill Strigoi throughout their education. Along with her best friend, Princess Vasilisa Dragomir, a Moroi and the last of her line, with whom she has a nigh unbreakable bond, Rose must run away from St Vladimir's, in order to protect Lissa from those who wish to harm the princess and use her for their own means.

Goofs

In the film while fighting Natalie, Rose breaks her arm, and can't even get up to defend herself. When Dimitri comes down to save her she is able to pick herself off the floor and restrain Natalie to the prison door with leather. And in the next scene she is wearing a cast. She would not have been able to maneuver her arm the way she did in the previous scenes if it was injured. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Lissa Dragomir: [about a song on the radio] Oh, Father, turn it up.
Rose Hathaway: Please, Mr. Dragomir, I love this song.
Andre: This song is sick... the traditional "vomit" definition of the word.
Lissa Dragomir: Shut up, Andre. Me and Rose want to hear it.
Lissa's Mom: "Rose and I," Lissa, "Rose and I."
Lissa's Dad: I think the tune is rather catchy.

Vampire Academy sucks!
19 June 2014 | by lynndltSee all my reviews

I was very excited waiting to see the movie, but It was a big disappointment when I started to watch it, The movie really sucks, in each and every way, the script, the direction and the acting is so lame, they look overreacted. I read the books and nothing to do, I know, already, some liberties are taken when making movies but this really exceeded that, considering that in the first book that is based assumes many of the facts happened that way and they knew not many details from the first book like in which element Lissa's specialize or how Lissa finds out about the relationship of Rose and Dimitri, a lot of that happened later in the other books. They are very explicit on some things and others are really absurdities that have no coherence. It's a shame they have destroyed a book that liked a lot of people and was looking forward to see it in the big Screen, to turn out in this crappy movie.
