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 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.

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

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.

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.
