The books are amazing and will draw you in and never let you go. But if you read the books first and then watch the movie there are some parts that will bother you. But all in all I thought the movie was pretty good. That's why I want to watch it again.

If you forget about the book, this movie is pretty good, but overall it is not nearly as exciting and has many more gaps to be filled.

This DVD movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. Not too bad---good performance. Very predictable but still entertaining.

love this movie i have watched it 3 times already if i could watch it every day i would

i waited forever for this movie and it came out completlly missing the story mangus looks different than i expected but you have to give them some credit for making him asian cuz clary says he is in the book but c'mon guys she is suppose to be stronger not ohhh jace love me she is suppose to hate him first and she likes him ahhhhggg i could go on forever wit this rant sooo wrong

I have to agree. THIS MOVIE INSULTED THE BOOK! Why did Valentine look like-I don't even know. Clary wasn't ANYTHING like the book. They left out parts. They added in unnecessary crap. Jace was a terrible actor. And don't even get me started on Magnus. Simon was the only one who acted anything like he should. And for another thing, WHY WAS THERE NO RAT SIMON? Why did they add that completely unnecessary fight with the vampires? It sucked.

I liked the visual effects of this movie but was very disappointed by the casting. Jace was the only one who looked right while Alec and Isabel were too short and Clary was too pretty. Don't get me wrong, the next two girls I'm talking about are pretty, but I feel that Clary was supposed to look like a cross between Hayley Williams of Paramore and Merida from Brave simply because they actually have bright red hair and have more cutesy yet plain facial features. Don't even get me started on Magnus and Valentine. SO WRONG.
Skip the movie, read the books.

This movie does not compliment the book. The movie has different order of events and is missing crucial details. Also the ending occurred in a completely different area with a different ending altogether. I will say if you didn't read the book the movie is fine but if you read the book the movie is messed up.
