February 12 is just another day in Sam's charmed life, until it turns out to be her last. Stuck reliving her last day over and over, Sam untangles the mystery around her death and discovers everything she's losing.
Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, half human-half vampire, a guardian of the Moroi, peaceful, mortal vampires living discreetly within our world. Her calling is to protect the Moroi from bloodthirsty, immortal Vampires, the Strigoi.
The film is, for all intents and purposes, watchable.
This is where you ask, "Then why did you give it a 3 out of 10 and say it's not worth my time?" To which I reply, that is the truth.
The film is something that you can watch to pass the time but honestly even then it's not really worth your time.
My main complaint against this film would be the scripting and directing. The two give no build up or growth to the story they are trying to tell. It feels like scenes just slapped together to get to the end of the story with no emotion, plan or entertainment to it. The situations themselves do seem like they could have a decent pay off but cause there was no build up, it falls flat on it's uninspired face. And this is all the more frustrating as the idea (though not entirely unique) seems like it could be interesting.
The actors put up an 'okay' performance but are entirely underwhelmed by the poor writing of the script. Thus their characters are not fun to follow, they have pointless character arcs and even worse dialogue.
But my advice to you would be this, watch the introduction of the film as we are introduced to the characters and their world, that essentially is the tone of the whole movie and if you're like me, by the time the title card comes on, you'll know this movie is going to be a waste.
