5.0 out of 5 stars As a fan of of YA lit and fantasy, I loved it! August 22, 2013
By Bookd
Format:Blu-ray
I think the negative reviews being spewed by jaded critics are extremely unfair. Just because this genre isn't your taste does not make it 'bad'. As a fan of YA lit and fantasy, this hit all the right marks for me. I loved Jamie Campbell Bower as Jace, and I was impressed by what the filmakers managed to fit into the two hours. The actors playing Simon and Isabel were fantastic as well. Great score/sountrack, fast paced story, several funny one liners, and cool fight scenes.

I hope the mean spirited attitude of the critics does not ruin the box office gross for this. I think reviewers want to blast anything YA these days because they OD'd on twilight. This is very different and it's a shame it's being lumped in with it. I do hope it does well and gets a good following on DVD/digital release so we get sequels.

5.0 out of 5 stars The most underrated and underappreciated movie of 2013! September 11, 2013
Format:DVD
I've seen this movie seven times. Yes, actually seven. I'm a huuuuge fan of the book and quite frankly with all these new book-to-movie adaptations I was horrified. The actors, I was indifferent about. Because nobody can live up to everyone's overzealous fantasies of how the character should work. I'll be honest, couldn't stand Jamie Campbell Bower at first when he was featured as Jace. He just didn't fit the part. But after the second, third and fourth time (with a little bit of YouTube viewing) His personality is extremely similar to Jace. Mainly this movie got attacked because of the 'low budget actors'. It was the first one, wasn't a make or break, they're not going to cancel out actors just because they're not top of the line popular. Plus, what really kills me is everyone's obsessive ability to compare this to twilight. Stop. Just stop. This isn't Twilight. It's not written by Stephenie Meyer. It's not about a shitty love story with a petty vampire and a girl stupider than a bag of rocks. Whatever. This is City of Bones, Mortal Instruments Saga written by Cassandra Clare. Please get it right. The acting, and the book portrayal was awesome, sure they tweaked a few things but if you follow the book word by word, (not to mention you only have 2 hours to speed things though) What they tweaked in the movie lead to a nice twist. I enjoyed it, first time I just kept comparing. Oh they did this instead of this, that instead of that. No. Not one book-to-movie adaptation is completely and utterly perfect. That's sincerely kills the excitement and the individualism of the movie.

Definitely saw how horrible this poor movie got on Rotten Tomatoes, and really. It's simply because a bunch of YA novels are becoming movies, and therefore they're being super critical over small things.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, A++++++ August 27, 2013
Format:DVD
I am so in love with this book series and this movie! I can't wait to own this one on DVD so that I can watch it over and over while waiting for the second movie to come out! I absolutely love this movie, it was amazing! I loved every second of it, even the subtle changes and the fact they had to increase the pacing, otherwise it just wouldn't of worked! There is always too much detail in a book to put everything in a movie, but what they managed here was so great. I loved Lily Collins as Clary, she was perfect, and Jamie Campbell Bower IS JACE. I loved Robert Sheehan as Simon as well. All the actors were so great in the film that I can't get over this movie, it is perfection to me as a fan of the series. I saw it in the cinema about 4 times, so I can't wait to be able to watch this movie whenever I want.

5.0 out of 5 stars loved it September 9, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
Saw it before reading the books, loved it.
Saw it again after reading the books, still loved it.

It doesn't follow the book exactly, but it maintains the feel of the world and the characters. Wonderful atmosphere, nice costume designs, good acting overall. Some cheese sure, but it's in good fun.

I really liked the director's choice to not overly rely on cg special effects. I read he specifically didn't use wires in the fight scenes. It made the movie feel grounded and more real, despite all the supernatural elements.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly faithful to the book! August 23, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This movie is an absolute treat for fans of the TMI books series! There's no way you won't enjoy seeing this gorgeous cast portray our beloved characters really, darn accurately for a book-adapted movie. The leads are especially impressive--Lily Collins not only looks perfectly the part of the petite, pretty and spunky Clary, she really acts the part, making Clary both every-girl relatable (with keen curiosity, intelligence, playfulness and self-motivation) and also believably brave, resourceful and able to make decisions/take actions of her own volition, guided by her own morals and priorities (which *shock* don't all revolve around her love for the brooding, hot guy who's just rolled into her life as in certain other YA series...). She's a truly engaging actress and definitely has the sort of on-screen presence that can carry a movie centered on her.

Speaking of brooding hot guys--Jamie Campbell Bower IS JACE. Whatever about the cheekbones or physical appearance that might not perfectly coincide with your mental image of Jace--Jamie has the character of Jace down PAT. (SO RELIEVED he was able to deliver Jace's many memorable, hilarious one-liners just perfectly! Simon too, actually~~) He brings to life Jace's effortless charm, wry wit, intelligent ruthlessness and even the unexpected little moments of gentleness/kindness that make Jace such an interesting, lovable character. Plus the physicality--dang, he DOES move with sleek, cat-like grace in the movie, and his fight scenes are INTENSE. My co-workers (non-book fans) who came with me to see the film were a bit "meh" about it overall (but they are soulless corporate types, so very little impresses them), and even they commented that they were surprised and pleased at how hard-hitting the action scenes were.
