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.

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.

So sad... This movie was too rushed!
9 February 2014 | by hernandez-yareSee all my reviews

What I liked: They stayed true to the book They added a few extra action scenes

What I didn't like: The movie was Incredibly rushed! It's like they didn't know how to close a scene properly. They just jumped from one scene thru the next. Too much DRAMA-I know that they are in high school & even in the book there's a lot of drama, but it was so exaggerated. I felt like it was so rushed that I didn't get to know the characters, and sometimes I felt like the actors didn't know the characters well either.

In my opinion there was only 2 big mistakes: Movie was way too rushed & not well explained and it was like watching Mean Girls all over again.

More action & less drama for the next movie please.
