Not too bad

By crazyraerae

The movie was okay, visually it was really cool with some things. The movie was not fully faithful to the book so I didn't appreciate that and most especially my biggest issue with this is the actor that played Jace does NOT fit how he's physically described in the book!!! I've seen this actor in other things before and generally he is unimpressive, but visually with these movies he is very much a no go. If you've read the book or not I'd say it's not bad to watch, but if you want a better story read the books.

Happy Father

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. Loved it!

Mortal Instruments city of bones

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!

Im Done with critics!

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!

Don't let critics steer your judgement, go se the movie! If you are a fan of the series im sure you will love it or enjoy it, they were some changes made so everything could fit but other than that its great! The cast was fantastic! If you are a casual viewer GO, you will enjoy it!
