Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, half human/vampire, guardians of the Moroi, peaceful, mortal vampires living discretely within our world. Her legacy is to protect the Moroi from bloodthirsty, immortal Vampires, the Strigoi. This is her story.
I have read the first four books in series but gave up a third of the way through the fifth as I disliked the way the plot was going. I will still be seeing the movie, though I am apprehensive as to how a man know for Mean Girls could possibly do this film justice. The posters look original, is there a reason nobody has done this bright green? I don't know but I still do love the marketing, the bright pink looks amazing.
I love the amount of time and effort which has gone into this movie, especially the little things such as the title cards and the redesign the Weinstein Company logo to look like fangs dripping blood! It looks well put together. Is that series of clips with everyone flashing teeth just a little bit cheesy or what? Not that I'm complaining, they seem to be going for that angle which is good because that's the type of thing films such as The Mortal Instruments got slated for, at least they admit it. When Sami as Mia says 'Back off blood whore, he's mine now', all my worries about her casting faded. Zoey owned Rose this as well, I was also hesitant about her casting but the delivery of the line 'Let's make tonight our bitch' made me squeal with excitement. Is it just me or was there no cat in the books? I don't remember anything about that. And the dresses for the dance, how elegant does Lissa look? Living up to her princess title no doubt. Oh, and one last thing, Dominic Sherwood just completes the film, I loved Christian from the books so I'm sure I'll adore movie Christian even more.
