I loved the film even though they changed alot of things that happened in the book but i knew that would happen and I still really enjoyed the film. I am mad that they did drop a spoiler in the first movie that you dont even find out until the third book of the mortal instruments. fans will know what i am talking bout when they see the movie.

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!

I went in a little hesitant, nervous and excited. I wanted to love this as much as I love the books while already prepping myself for this to be nothing like the book. I was wrong, & right. I felt like the world was BEAUTIFULLY created, matching the visuals of the book perfectly. I am still having issues with Jamie being Jace, he just seemed not "ethereal" enough for me, but he nailed it with the acting and the sarcastic humor so it redeemed him. I was able to look past Lilly's dark red hair (versus bright red) because let's face it, the ACTING is more important. Simon? PERFECT. I walked away completely loving this movie - changes from the book & all. Yes, there are some loopholes & plot changes, but I am glad they did it. It would have been hard to get a NEW audience without these changes. Side note: my husband also went & is a huge fan of this movie genre & purposely didn't read the books beforehand. He said he was confused about things, there were some holes, but he still liked it

Not worth paying extra for the IMAX experience

Save your money and watch it in normal digital projection if you must. The cheesy effects look worse enhanced and amplified. The movie is a compromise trying to tell a fantasy comic strip involving incest at its core within a PG-13 rating and failing with a bland and uninteresting two and a half hours. Who is this product targeted at?

Completely amazing. Everyone should see this movie. I already feel like I am having withdrawals and I just saw it last night. Was very tempted to buy another ticket last night. :) Yes there are some changes to the story but you can expect that with an adaptation but they stuck to the story a lot too. Isabelle's whip was pretty awesome and Jamie who?? All I saw during the movie was Jace Wayland. Jamie did that amazing with the role of Jace. Yes I read ALL of the books. Both TMI and the Clockwork series. This movie is a MUST see for TMI fans. I think they need to get moving on filming the next one! I will be purchasing this when it comes out for home.
