New Mortal Instruments movie delivered lots of great action,drama & more. Screen Gems (Sony) released their new action flick, “The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones,” into theaters this weekend. I just checked it out,and thought it was ok. It offered a lot of great action scenes and cool special effects,along with a ton of drama. However, there were parts that were quite slow and boring. And the storyline was a bit hard to follow to say the very least. It stars: Lily Collins, Jamie Campbell Bower, Robert Sheehan, Kevin Zegers, Lena Headey, Kevin Durand, Aidan Turner, Jemima West, Godfrey Gao, CCH Pounder, Jared Harris, and Jonathan Rhys Meyers.
The new flick is apparently based on a worldwide best-selling book series, and revolved around character,Clary Fray (Lily Collins}, who is a seemingly ordinary teenager in New York City. After a series of strange events ,suddenly went down, Clary discovers that she is actually a descendant of a line of what is called, Shadowhunters.
It’s explained that Shadowhunters are a secret cadre of young half-angel warriors ,locked in an ancient battle to protect Earth from demons. Clary’s mother is taken by a guy named Valentine at one point, and Clary eventually joins forces with a group of Shadowhunters that introduce her to a dangerous alternate New York called Downworld, which is filled with demons, warlocks, vampires, werewolves and other deadly creatures.
And the whole thing eventually culminates in a huge,epic, and very confusing conclusion that involves closing a gate that was letting demons enter, Clary saving what is called a “Mortal Cup” from getting stolen by Valentine,and so much more that kept my head spinning.
Again, I thought the movie was just ok at best, and that was because I liked all the action and special effects it offered. However, the storyline was just all over the place,and really tough to follow unless you really knew the books,story, or whatever. I like Lily Collins,because she’s just an absolute cutie, but man, this storyline had me falling asleep in the middle parts. The action was really terrific at the end,though. I gave the movie a C+ grade. Stay tuned. Follow us on Facebook by Clicking Here. Follow us on Twitter by Clicking Here.
