This movie is very similar to the book.. You can see the chemisrty that Jace and Clary have for each other. Truly love it and really excited and patiently waiting for movie two to come out... I saw it in IMAX which really was loud and made you feel like you were in the movie. I took my 12 year old daughter and my 16 year old step son they both loved it as well!!

This was awesome and I would highly recommend this movie to anyone. I was disappointed in the advertisements for this movie. More people should be aware of this outstanding series. It could be a huge blockbuster.

It was fast paced. Very sequential. Not choppy. There were a few things that I was looking for that weren't there, but they weren't crucial to the plot. They just would have been REALLY cool to see. Jamie Campbell Bower and Robert Sheehan were the BEST Jace and Simon that I could have asked for. And Jemima West was a KICK ***Isabelle! I love Lily & Kevin as well, but my eyes were honestly on Simon & Jace for the ENTIRE film. JRM was great as Valentine. He was quite scary most of the time. At first, I thought he was overacting, but as the movie continued, I really started to believe his character.
The original scoring of the film was BRILLIANT. The only thing I didn't like was the Demi Lovato "Heart to Heart" song playing where it did. I thought it was overkill for an already perfect scene.
The action sequences was effin' AMAZING! And the graphics were spot on. The demons looked so real and so disgusting. GREAT effort all around. LOVED IT!

This movie isn't getting the praise it deserves. The books aside, the movie has great graphics, wonderful creativity behind bringing the script to life and gives a few no names a chance to actually act. Now, as far as the book goes, there is no way to bring the entire book to life but the movie comes close. It is different, not just the typical vampires and wolves, but Fey and Angels and Demons, oH MY! Took two teenage boys and even they were impressed. The movie even got them to jump a several times and I enjoy any moment where I can scare the kids!! I really hope the disappointing numbers from the box office don't keep the production company from making book two into a movie as well.

Decent movie, had some pretty cheesy scenes, and a little confusing. I'll have to watch it again to grasp what actually happened. It's good enough for me to be open for a sequel.
