I waited a long time to see this movie as it never came out in my local cinema. It was good; it stuck to the main themes in the book, even though they were reordered. It did however have a few plot lines from the later books therefore taking away from the amounts of suspense that make the books so captivating. However the film was entertaining and action filled, keeping me entertained for the whole time it was on. The casting was incredible with the cast looking very much like the characters described in the book. I do believe however that this film would have been better if I had not read the book first and spend so much time comparing them both.
“Isabelle Lightwood: Doesn’t she look great, Alec?
Alec Lightwood: She looks like someone whose phone number should be on a bathroom wall.”
“Clary Fray: Isn’t this the part where you start tearing off pieces of your shirt to bind my wounds?
Jace Wayland: If you wanted me to take off my clothes all you had to do was ask.”
“Luke: I’m a werewolf, not a Golden Retriever.”
