This movie is unfortunately kind of sucky
The book is duly recommended however.
For me, the acting is off. Lily Collins would have done a great job if Clary Fray happened to be the crying, screaming, scared type of girl. Problem is that she's not.
Jace is marred by Jamie's inability to speak faster like a normal person. He's not the charismatic Jace; he's a suffering Brit. He just can't pull of Jace like the way I imagine Alex Pettyfer could.
I couldn't finish the movie.
Sorry. That's all I have
