The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones is a book to movie adaptation based on the worldwide best-selling fantasy book series by author Cassandra Clare. It is a film many fans have anticipated, and it’s finally here! I feel like I have had a baby because I have been waiting nine months to see the film! I went to the premiere and was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this!
The film version of The Mortal Instruments is a well made supernatural fantasy thriller that captures the beauty of Clare’s extraordinary and unique Shadowhunter world. It boasts a brilliant cast, great action sequences, dark cinematography, and a strong witty script. It is actually not a simple film, as you can tell from this rather extensive and complex review where I have attempted to shed light at some of the films intricacies. So, as one of the film’s stars Jamie Campbell Bower would say in his English accent, grab yourself a cup of tea (or a cappuccino with an angelic rune design in it), relax, and have a read!
