Summary: I was interested in the sort of rules that were involved with these types of vampires and found the history of the characters and their choices to be the backbone of the movie, when it came to the final act of the movie the pace picked up which was good but I thought the characters made some strange choices.
Summary: I tend to be more of a shallow popcorn movie lover so I was pleasantly surprised. Some people found it slow but I was totally drawn into the story. Great acting and awesome camerawork. Slight humour in parts just to break the rather bleak but riveting tale. Highly recommended.
Summary: As the title suggests I wasn't too sure what the movie was about other than it had vampires in it, which I am a sucker for (no pun intended). This film is more of a period piece, not your typical vamp film. I found it quite slow in places yet it kept enough of a secret for me wanting to know what was going to happen next. It was definitely a film with more than meets the eye.
Summary: It's not a boom, boom,shake the room type of movie with fangs and blood galore, although the latter did feature. I was mesmerised by the story line; the human aspect to it and the differences between mother and daughter. I really enjoyed it and was entertained, which is really what it's all about.
Summary: So refreshing to see a vampire film for adults after all the junk that's come out the last few years, this one being a bit of a slow burner but really sticks with you afterwards, much in the same way the director's other fang flick Interview With The Vampire played out. This one might require a little front end investment on the viewer's front, but ultimately will leave mature audiences satisfied, or not, I expect, like the best films, this one may end up polarizing.
Summary: I went in not knowing what to expect, it was a little slow moving towards the beginning but the wait was worth it. When the story started coming together, it was captivating and the cinematography was just beautiful. I would watch this again. I enjoyed the way that the idea of vampires was used in a comfortably unique way and I can't say that it was significantly similar to any other movie. Nice work!
Summary: I think this is one of the best vampire movies that I have seen so far. Saoirse Ronan, Gemma Arterton both delivered fantastic performances and kept the interest throughout the whole story. Although brilliant acting, the story itself could have been slightly more detailed- there were strands of story that weren't explained, however I understood the main plot. This movie did not disappoint- it was a great way to bring back a good name to Vampires (Twilight ruined it all).
