I should begin by saying that i have in fact read the book series therefore was over joyed to hear they would be making a movie. i was rather apprehensive to whether this would even have a chance against the book and found myself comparing it.
i was very surprised, they managed to include all detail from the book and some from the second (city of ashes) to lead the story on. I do feel if i wasn't such a fan of the books this movie may have confused me to some extent. There use of language that is associated with the shadow hunter world.Never the less i couldn't get enough of it.
I was rather a huge Twilight fan so was quickly expecting them to be similar in its teen fantasy aspect. But to my surprise found this to be more grown up and all around a good movie. Full of action and dark at times.
The smirk jokes made throughout sent giggles through the audience and i kept remembering them from the book. This was mostly from the character jace (James campbell bower) who was one of my particularly favorite characters in and out of the book, along with the other main character Clary (Lily collins) i did really enjoy this movie and actually hope to see it again next week. Please do not right it of as a Harry Potter or Twilight repeat because it is so very different and has so many good parts i wish people would stop comparing it too other movies. Give it a go you may pleasantly be surprised at how much you like it. :) 8/10
