Great Adaption, Book readers will love, and their friends that haven't. (by jezziewhitlock13)
Total movie: 90/100 Acting: 80/100 Effects: 80/100 Book Changes: 80/100 Awesome Level: 100/100Not really any spoilers, just the mention of changes, and certain scenes. As a fan of the books, I came into this knowing they were going to change things, and being okay with it. I was very happy with the small changes, and rearrangements. I loved this movie. It has to be one of my favorite book to movies. It's different, but the changes all fit well with were the movie went, and flowed. Despite what critics have said, I think this is nothing at all like Twilight or Harry Potter. It's <more>
nothing we ever have seen before, being a fan of a lot of YA novels and movies, and have repeatedly read and watched them so I know whats what. This movie/book is not at all like Twilight, especially. For one the female lead can actually kick ass, and stand up for herself. The acting was much, much, better than I expected. Robert Sheehan was fantastic as Simon, Lilly Collins a great lead, truly pulling off Clary, and Jamie Campbell Bower was everything I ever imagined for Jace. Jonathan Rhys Meyers was absolutely creepy, as the villain, Valentine, Kevin Zegers played Alec perfect, and new comer Jemina West was the best Isabelle I could picture. WHO WILL LIKE THIS MOVIE: I was with my mom, who has not read the books at all, and she loved it. She's a fan of fantasy like I am, so she was able to keep up with everything, and understand. Unlike some critics who stated they couldn't keep up with all the new terms. So I recommend this movie to ANYONE who likes fantasy films, that have action, good acting, love, and a little bit of scary. Who SHOULDN'T watch this movie: People who expect this to be Twilight, and just another teen show. People who can't accept changes to the book at all. COMPLETELY WORTH SEEING IN THEATER! I plan on going again! Possibly even two more times to see it before the movie is out to DVD.
The main thing that bugs me about all of the reviews that this movie has been given, is the fact that the people writing it aren't trying to see the movie from the perspective of the audience that this movie is aimed at, which happens to be teenagers. The book was aimed at teenagers and happened to be a NY times best seller and the movie is very true to the book even down to little details, so if you did happen to fall in love with the characters like I did you won't be disappointed seeing them come to life right in front of you. I personally loved the movie, and loved the fact that <more>
it frequently used the best lines from the book like, "Jesus", "No it's just me." - Simon. It was funny and witty and Jamie Campbell Bower who plays Jace did such an incredible job. He is Jace, everything that he did or said in the film was just perfection. Lily Collins who plays Clary, was incredible as well and the chemistry between them was amazing, they were the perfect on screen couple. Simon was just I can't even. He is just perfect, exactly what I pictured him to be. The special effects were so amazing that I couldn't tell what wasn't real. Everyone has their own taste in movies I know, but you need to give it a try. If you don't try to look for all of it's flaws and just enjoy the film for the perfection that it is, you may enjoy your self. I did, I had an amazing time watching this with my friends, it was a great day out and the best way to cheer a friend up when they were having a bad day. I know it may not be for everyone, but you have to give it a chance before you even think about judging it. Just watch the movie and have fun, I ask of you for just that. Just think with all the criticism that this movie has taken, imagine what they will take into account for the next movie and how amazing that will be. By you not seeing the good you might miss out on what could be a massive franchise. I beg of you give it a chance, and think about how good the next movie will be.
Great movie that is unlike any other. (by kmariew101)
I am a long time fan of this series and was not disappointed. I honestly have no idea why everyone is comparing this to either Twilight or Harry Potter; If you are looking for another movie exactly like twilight, this is not for you. It has some romance in it, but it also has far too much action in it to be close to twilight. If you are looking for a movie just like Harry Potter, then this movie is also not for you. It does have action in it, but this world is nothing like the Harry Potter world and it has too much romance in it for it to be like Harry Potter.Overall, I absolutely loved this <more>
movie. Several of my friends that went along with me, who have never read the book, also loved it. It is a great movie with awesome special effects, and you do not have to read the book in order to understand what is happening. Cannot wait for the next movie.
Great Movie for everyone, not just the Twilight crowd (by wraytogo)
First of all you need to know this review is coming from a 39 year old Male who has never read the books. Having heard the hype that this was the next twilight series which I dutifully, but barely endured as a good husband ... this movie is NOTHING LIKE TWILIGHT AT ALL. Heres why:This is a movie made for more then just teenage girls and soccer mom's. It's has real action, solid acting, good cinematography, and dwells more on the storyline then romance.Having never read the Mortal Instruments books, I was a little leery of seeing the movie and being totally lost. My fears were <more>
unfounded as the first hour of the show does a solid job of laying out the storyline. The first hour did seem a little long for me, but was well worth it and necessary as it made the last hour understandable and fly by with its non-stop action. This is nothing like what I was expecting after having to endure the twilight films with their horrible acting and cheesy cinematography. As well as multiple one-hit wonders of werewolf/vampire/demon shows that have come out since. This show had legitimate effects, great action scenes, and some really good acting performances. Here's my breakdown:Effects: From the beginning this film proves it's a step above with cinematography and effects. The demons were gruesome, scary, and awesome! When supposed humans turn to demons, this is done very well. One questionable effect towards the beginning of the show was easily forgotten due to the many excellent effects during the whole show.Action: Having seen Jamie Campbell Bower on the red carpets just moments before seeing the show, I had serious worries about him being able to pull off a believable action figure due to his skinny frame. Oddly, it was the action scenes where I enjoyed his acting the best and believed he was the main man. On the whole, the fight scenes were very engaging, particularly the ending sequences. There were two times though, I wished they had made the fight scenes a little longer to show more of a struggle to overcome.Acting: This is where I was most pleasantly surprised. Lily Collins and Robert Sheehan stole the show in terms of solid, believable performances. Jamie did a convincing job and exceeded my expectations, but did fall a little short at subtle times as his skinny frame could not be overcome in the shot. His attempt to be seen as tough when his stature said otherwise caught me at times. I felt like all the performers were engaging though, with the exception of the role of Magnus. I'm not sure if it was his acting or the role they put him in, but it just didn't seem to fit the character he could/should have been. Readers may feel differently here, I was just confused if he was intended to be a tough guy or a joke.Storyline: Understandably they had to lay the foundation of the storyline, which for the first hour they did. There was a lot of information to take in the first hour and honestly I began to doubt how they were going to take this load of info and tie it all together by the end. I was amazed at how well they did it! The last hour flew by as they did an excellent job of tying in each element and doing it with very compelling drama.Overall I'd give the movie a B+. Solid acting and action stood out and will make a very satisfying experience for any non-reader who watches the show.
If you've read the book, ignore the tiny details, differences between the book and the film. Just focus on the film interpretation. The plot is still the same, just another different way of telling story and it came out pretty good. Action scenes are very entertaining for me and the vampire scene gives out the real evil feeling. I just feel like that they didn't use music up to its potential. If they chose the songs that fit better than the ones we've heard in the movie, it'd have changed and improved the atmosphere in that moment, seriously. My sister doesn't even know <more>
that the book exists, but still, she loves the movie and enjoy it very much. We kept talking about it all the way back home. The plot is still there!!! My suggestions >> Don't think too much, Don't over expect much and enjoy the movie. It is fun!! and I'm looking forward to the second film
Loved the books, great film! (by Thecollective-772-245351)
Loved the books and really enjoyed the film, if you like twilight / potter and these kind of fantasy films then this is defiantly worth a watch or read... My only grumps were - poor choice of music, it was just far too cheesy and childish, it ruined the dark mystery moods for me and did nothing to enhance the film. There was 1 min Birthday candle part it almost went all Disney for my liking.... cringe....!! Hope they don't repeat any of this in the next film & find better music that suits the moody darkness of the film. The main characters pretty much matched what I had I visualised <more>
from the book, Clary and Simon spot on! Jace - good but needed to be more warrior muscular and Valentino just a little older. I will defiantly watch it again and the next film....
If only they didn't feel they had to push it so far (by ayoreinf)
It's a nice film adaptation of a fairly nice teen fantasy. It follows the book fairly well at least in the spirit, until about two thirds of the film are done with. But then it goes too far, and even commits the unforgiven sin of adding a spoiler that the books kept as a secret for almost full three volumes. The rest is fairly well done. The acting is all right, the story as has been mentioned is not the most original but it's not all that derivative too. The look is true to this era of cinematic magic, in which CG can make everything look real enough. The whole thing would've <more>
been so much better if only the script showed a bit more respect to the original story. There are no real excuses for a few very significant changes from the original taking place in the last 30 minutes or so of the film. I've already complained about this Hollywood phenomenon, but it seems to me once again that the script writer's ego simply got in the way.
Don't get me wrong, no movie adaptation of a novel is going to be perfect and make everyone happy, but I feel as though the critics have been way too harsh on this movie and it's actors/actresses. Though, this seems like a trend with YA movies, beside Harry Potter I tend to see critics rip and tear apart teen movies like birds feasting on a dead carcass...I swear they all get together and decide to do it as a group. just saying Anyhow, I wouldn't say TMI was perfect, but it was the first in the series and I hope they get a chance to fix their minor mistakes and release City of <more>
Ashes. I enjoyed that book and would love to see it brought to life.The actors: I did not see anything wrong with any of them save the actor who played Magnus Bane, he wasn't terrible, but definitely lacked the personality that he had in the books. His character always made me laugh and I guess Godfrey Gao kind of fell a little flat and almost mechanic on screen. I thought everyone else fit well and acted well, I don't see the issues that many others seem to see. I'm no film critic, but I am a fan and a lover of movies.The Plot: Although most of the movie seemed to stick with the book they surprisingly changed a lot at the end. For example, Hodge telling Valentine to lie to Clary and Jace about being sister and brother versus Hodge actually believing that they were brother and sister after Valentine tells him this. I guess I can understand why they did it, but it, to me, did not have that gut wrenching "oh crap!" moment I felt when reading the books, even though as a reader I hoped and kind of figured it wasn't true, especially when the character of Sebastian shows up, it all starts to piece together from there. Though, I cannot understand why they did it...the incest reason? In case they never made another movie? Fear of confusing people? I don't know, I wasn't a fan, but the changes like this one definitely did not ruin the movie for me.I enjoyed the action sequences and even thought the "cheesey" romance scene in the garden was kind of cute, I thought the kiss between Jace and Clary was pretty passionate and personally felt as though Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell Bower had good chemistry. I have to admit I liked Jamie already from his role on Camelot Well, this is just my opinion and two cents I just really hope that the movie itself does well with the fans and that a second film is made because I, for one will be devastated to see such an amazing series from such an incredible author be shut down after only one movie. :
I had very high hopes for this movie and (by rodrilover17)
