I am a big fan of the books and to me the movie didnt disappoint me. I really enjoyed it. I mean, there are a few things that werent included (like SImon being turned into a rat at the party) but thats the way adaptations are. They don't include everything in the book. I love JCB as Jace. He pulls it off great to me. I enjoyed it. I giggled when Jocelyn was hitting Pangborn with the frying pan bc all I could think of was the movie Tangled.
I will def be buying the movie and hope to see the second one.

I took my 13 year old daughter and we had a terrific father daughter night.
Both of us left the theater saying "wow, I really liked that movie"
Now neither of us have read the book so we are not comparing book and movie - we are just reporting on the movie as a stand alone.

Just like many movies that are made from books, the movie never stays in line with the book. It was nice to have a visual for those that have read the books. There were a few things that I would of liked to have seen more of, but overall the movie was great!
Cant Wait for the next one!

First off I would like to say that I loved this movie! The chemistry between Lily Collins, who plays Clary Fray, and Jamie Campbell Bower, who plays Jace, is easy for anyone to see. Also, the story line stayed really close to the books and had its fill of actual quotes from the book, which you don't really see much of. So, forget what the dumb middle aged men critics are say and go see it!

I didn't expect much. What I saw was visually intense, and some horrific creatures that would put the Silent Hill movies to shame. Filled with pretty people, but hey, it's a mainstream teen flick a'la Twilight. Still a decent story, and some decent actors, and great visuals.
