Things I Hate: Byzantium (2012 Film)

Saoirse Ronan Byzantium 2012 Movie

I saw this Saoirse Ronan movie many moons ago.

The plot begins with a young woman named Eleanor Webb who has been trying to tell almost anyone her life-story. She lives with her mother Clara, and they constantly move around Great Britain. What makes Eleanor and Clara special is that they are vampires.

Their history dates back to Europe in the early 19th century. Clara became a vampire to save herself from her illness, and she would later have to do the same for her daughter years later. However in the present-day, both Eleanor and Clara are struggling to live normally, but their past will soon come back to haunt them.

Over I had hopes that Byzantium would be a rather cool movie, but it’s not. I thought the story had a lot of merit and some notable moments, but the vampires in the movie aren’t really scary at all. You almost forget that both Eleanor and Clara aren’t normal humans anymore. The plot had potential but it’s just not a thrilling movie.
