The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones (Movie Review)

Last night, I watched a novel adapted movie called The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones courtesy of Nuffnang Malaysia. This movie is briefly about Clary Fray, her mother who have disappeared and learns that she descends from a line of warriors who protect the world from demons. She joins forces with others like her and heads into a dangerous alternate New York called Downworld.

Director: Harald Zwart
Writers: Jessica Postigo (screenplay), Cassandra Clare (based on the novel by)
Stars: Lily Collins, Jamie Campbell Bower, Jemima West

Set in contemporary New York City, a seemingly ordinary teenager, Clary Fray (Lily Collins), discovers she is the descendant of a line of Shadowhunters, a secret cadre of young half-angel warriors locked in an ancient battle to protect our world from demons. After the disappearance of her mother (Lena Headey), Clary must join forces with a group of Shadowhunters, who introduce her to a dangerous alternate New York called Downworld, filled with demons, warlocks, vampires, werewolves and other deadly creatures. Based on the worldwide best-selling book series.

Here's what you can expect from this movie: Shadowhunters, demons, vampires, werewolf, witch & warlock. Imagine the entire movie with action from Underworld and the romance from Twilight with additional bonus of gay dudes! There are six books in total for The Mortal Instruments although the sixth book will only be released in 2014 but I'm pretty sure the whole intention of this could be another Twilight franchise in the making. What I can say for now is whatever left untold or unexplained in the first movie would probably be explained in the second movie (hopefully).

Conclusion: The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones is filled with spectacle actions and forceful sense of humor that won't bores you entirely. Adults might not be impressed but for younger audience especially teenage girls, they would probably love it.

Cut scene: Knife/sword stabbing and some intimacy scene.
