Movie Reviews: The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones

City Of BonesPoster tmi
There should be no doubt in anybody’s mind that this movie was designed for those who had read and loved the book, rather than as a movie that could stand on its own. There are gaps in the movie that are filled in the book, so for those people who hate this movie and are dismissing it as Twilight-esque, I encourage you to read the books. I think this movie would be better enjoyed as a companion to the novel. Nonetheless, it was highly exciting and enjoyable and stuck to the original story about as much as could be expected. Some highlights for the movie were the inclusion of some of the funnier lines from the book, which sets the story apart nicely, and Jamie Campbell Bower and Robert Sheehan who play Jace Wayland and Simon Lewis to perfection. It’s no fantastic, it’s not horrible, it is just what you would expect – a funny, action-packed and enjoyable movie best enjoyed along with the novels rather than as an alternative.
WARNING: If you have only read the first book than I suggest waiting to see this until you have read City of Glass, as they added some major spoilers for some reason!
