The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones Movie Review

Thanks to Nuffnang for this awesome movie premiere passes at GSC, Mid Valley!
From what i know is that The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones is a young adult novel, so i would assume that it's gonna be interesting. Scroll down for more info

Release Date: 22 Aug 2013 
Genre: Action (P13)
Running Time: 130 minutes 
Director: Harald Zwart 
Cast:Lily Collins, Jamie Campbell Bower, Lena Headey, Jonathan Rhys Meyers


Based on The New York Times bestselling young adult novel, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones follows the journey of Clary Fray (Mirror Mirror’s Lily Collins), a seemingly ordinary teenager who discovers that she is in fact a descendant from a long line of Shadowhunters, a secret cadre of half-angel warriors locked in an ancient battle to protect our world from assorted demons; a battle largely unseen by human eyes.

So the whole thing starts from Clary, an ordinary girl who frequently draw a shape of Rune and saw a shape of Rune sometimes where her friend, Simon couldn't see. Then her mother went missing after being attacked by the demons. Clary was then protected and being cared by Jace, a ShadowHunter. Soon, Clary joined the group of remaining ShadowHunters (Demon Fighters) in The Institute to seek for the Mortal Cup before the demons get it. Of course, at the same time looking for Clary's Mother.

For me, i do think that this movie is good but it need some improvements. On the bright side, this movie contain some scenes which are humorous. Hence, it involves a love triangle. However, i do think that some parts of the movie, they did not explain or resolve viewers thought (maybe it's just me and my friend who have some question marks after the movie). While there's also a part about Simon, they did not show what happen to him after bitten by vampire.
However, I think girls will like this movie. If they have done a better storyline, i will rate it higher ^^
