Mortal Instruments – City of Bones


So, tonight, my friend Nick and I went to see Mortal Instruments. I honestly wasn’t expecting it to be any good, but it was better than I hoped.

Certainly, not the worst movie I’ve seen this year.. the acting was good and the demonic rotweiler was very freaky to watch. But, even a demonic dog can’t take away from the fact that this is.. yes.. a chick flick. Much like “Beautiful Creatures” this was very clearly meant for a target audience of teenaged girls.

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.
