Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Vampire Academy is an action/comedy based on the bestselling young adult novels by Richelle Mead. It contains plenty of Buffy the Vampire Slayer-style martial arts fighting and monsters, plus a generous amount of blood, even if it's not overly gory. Some dead animals are shown (but obviously not harmed in real life). The teenage characters are shown kissing in more than a few scenes, and sex is a topic for discussion fairly frequently. In one scene, two characters are under a spell and begin kissing and falling into bed together; the female hero is shown in her bra and panties and the man is shown in underpants. There's also quite a few cleavage shots of the female lead. Language is mild, but still contains "ass," "bitch," "whore," and "d--k."
The teens in this movie kiss in several scenes, and sex is definitely thought of and discussed frequently. The main character's cleavage is prominent in several scenes. In one scene, a love spell causes her and an older man to kiss, undress down to their underwear, and fall onto a bed together. The man then breaks the spell. The main character is shown in a bra and panties, and the man in underwear.
The movie features lots of martial arts fighting against monsters, where the monsters are often stabbed with silver stakes. It isn't extra-gory, but it does feature a generous amount of blood. Two "warnings" are written in blood. Several scenes of vampires sucking blood are shown. Humans are shown volunteering to be "vampire food." A nasty-looking car crash is shown. The bloody corpses of a fox and a cat are shown (though not real). A character is briefly tortured (using magic), and is shown with various (temporary) cuts on her arms.
The movie avoids very strong language, but does have its share of milder words, like "ass," "boobies," "bitch," "dick," "jerk," "hell," and "whore." In one scene, a character utters, "mother..." but stops before she gets to the second half of the word.
It's hard to detect through the mishmash just what the movie is getting at, but one of the characters gives an impassioned speech at the end about sticking together and not bullying one another.
