Vampire Academy Reviews
... falls flat on its face . The film ends up looking like a sloppily put together mash-up of almost all tween pop culture reference from films.
In spite of using the standard elements of a high school drama (read: Mean Girls-meets-The Princess Diaries), Vampire Academy doesn't suck (pun intended)! It's about friendship, high-school crushes, romance and much more.
Vampire Academy could have worked as a sitcom, unfortunately on the big screen its reduced to nothing more than a bunch of half baked gags.
Thanks to the success of Twilight and its sequels, the Young Adult genre seems to have exploded and we’ve been blessed with dozens of clones and carbon copies. Last year’s Mortal Instruments was one disaster, and this year’s Vampire Academy follows suit.

If you are a fan of Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead, you can’t have a better Valentine treat. And for others, it is just another addition to their list of young-adult vampire movie adaptations, released recently.
Money spent on the making of this movie could have funded something far more entertaining and worthy of your time. Be smart, and stay away, this really sucks!
