Besides the story line being messed up to make it fit into movie time, they made the characters so stereo typical, the were wolves were all shaggy men as opposed to regular people (including women) who happen to be were wolves , the vampires were all scary & unappealing as opposed to a mix of enticing, mesmerizing & some actually appealing, the adult shadow hunters represented by Valentine's henchmen were just big thugs, not the graceful, beings & the worst was making Valentine himself be a Genghis Khan rip off instead of the imposing controlling in control man in a buisness suit - (what was with the lame braids & have him have no control whatsoever, not scary, just brutish - why would Clary's mom ever want what they showed him to be?!! It is a shame, it was like a mockery of the characters. Isabelle should have been taller & more stately as is mentioned in the book, so as to create a contrast with Clary, but really she came over as a mediocre person - and that is just to start with

This movie was everything I hoped for and then some! I found myself comparing it to the Harry Potter series, which rocked--only this movie is for a more mature audience. It had all the action, suspense, drama, and actors/actresses with super star qualities. I can hardly wait for the next movie!

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.

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!!

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!
