Surprisingly tolerable, better than Twilight

"Everything you've heard... about monsters, about nightmares, legends whispered around campfires. All the stories are true."

2013's The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones is another attempt to kick-start a cinematic franchise of young adult novel adaptations, emerging in the shadow of Twilight, Harry Potter and The Hunger Games. It's actually the third movie of 2013 to attempt to spa... read more

The movie sucked. It was so bland and boring, and the rest was just weird. There is very little humor, and no hint of the witty conversations from the book. What made the book great is completely absent in the movie. The casting wasn't too good either. Lily Collins didn't even try to be a redhead. Her hair looked so magenta. Is that what the producers considered red? And while her mom has a Britis... read more

 After watching so many movies adapted from some popular Young Adult novel, I had some rather low expectations concerning this one but my step-son was quite eager to watch it. Eventually,  even though I didn’t care for most of it, it was actually slightly better than the most of the other movies in this genre. Indeed, even though I'm getting really tired of those stories trying to mash up some... read more

" This was dreadful. I read these books because I enjoy the Urban Fantasy genre. Surprisingly, I actually enjoyed Jamie Campbell Bower's performance, which I was dreading. It was goddamn Lily Collins. I want to like her so badly but I can't because she's made of wood. She's f'ing Pinocchio. I haven't liked her in anything but that goofy Snow White movie, and I'm pretty sure that's because it was a comedy and she wasn't expected to portray any 'real' emotions for any amount of time. She jus"

What made the book great is completely absent in the movie. The casting wasn't too good either. Lily Collins didn't even try to be a redhead. Her hair looked so magenta. Is that what the producers considered red? And while her mom has a British accent, Clary doesn't. What the heck? They should either both be British or American. That accent inconsistency alone makes the movie seem so unstable, which is a quality you do not want to see in a movie. Stability is something you want, even in the weird and crazy movies.

The casting for Jace and Simon and Isabelle are bad. It's like they didn't even try to cast any good choices, or ” read more
