Based on the novel by Annette Curtis Klause and set in modern-day Bucharest, this werewolf tale stars Agnes Bruckner as Vivian Gandillon, a beautiful young woman with lycanthropic origins who becomes torn between honouring her family's ancient secret and her burgeoning love for American artist Aiden (Hugh Dancy). Vivian has spent her entire life running from the truth - but now a string of accidental murders threatens to rip her pack apart and expose her dark secret to the man she loves...

'Aiden' becomes hunted down by order of 'Gabriel'(Oliver Martinez) the pack leader. Not only does he want to stop 'Vivian' and 'Aiden' being together, 'Aiden' was responsible for the death of 'Gabriel's' son.
What will the outcome be?
There are some good 'Pack' chase moments,however the special effects are in this day and age quite basic...Overall the film is not great, but it is watchable.
The Blood and Chocolate theme was supposed to be the two lovers in Vivian's life - Gabriel and Aiden. Aiden was the "chocolate" that Vivian liked. Gabriel was the "blood" that Vivian craved, wanted, and searched for. I felt this book was a coming of age story, about a young lost and confused girl who was running from her true self because it frightened and ashamed her but eventually she comes to accept who she is and is proud of this, she also discovers Gabriel is who she needs and wants. The film didn't convey this at all and made it a `goodies and badies' theme which made the story kind of average and therefore did not stand out like the book or have me completely engrossed like the original story did
Like I said as a film it was great I just wish they had not called it Blood and Chocolate or based it on the book as it bares absolutely no comparison to the one I read
Olivier Martinez underplays Gabriel nicely, Hugh Dancy sparkles as usual, and Agnes Bruckner was suitably sullen as the young woman torn between them.
It's a nice, easy watch, and worth the fiver I paid for it, lol.I gave it three stars for it not being long and involved enough.
I was left wondering, though, what the hell chocolate had to do with the film ! Having read the other reviews here, I get why it's called that.....so I'm going to buy the book.....
