Schools not all they suck at. Did I spoil my review?
I had high hopes for this movie. It was a HUGE let down from a sci-fi fan point of view and from a vampire fan point of view. Have you ever experienced one of those movies when from the first commercial advertisement you begin to get excited about seeing it, time passes, and then you finally get to rent it, and then it starts out bad and kind of low budget feeling yet you hold on and keep thinking "it'll get better", alas, it never does. Vampire Academy is THAT movie.
The plot sounded good enough. A school for Vampires, different types of vampire classifications, wealth vs poor, old vs young, etc. All good. This movie however did not successfully tell a good story. It fell flat. I have to say it was a combination of budget vs reach and poor directorial choices by Mark Waters.
Don't believe me? Follow this link to watch it for yourself Vampire Academy. I dare you.
Shawn M. literally fell asleep less than 20 minutes into the movie. I, unfortunately remained awake.
Vampire Academy gets two thumbs down from me!
One up one down from Shawn!
(He didn't watch enough to care.)
