The Moral Instruments City of Bones
This was a movie mainly about a young girl who realizes she is not only different from the others but she also can see demons. A very handsome Jace (Jamie Campbell Bower) plays a shadow hunter. At first the only person from our world that can see him is Clary (Lily Collins). The movie begins with Clary seeing Jace. She has always known she is different and when she starts drawing these symbols she realizes just how different she is. As Jace connects with her Clary is the only person that sees him. He shows her and her friend Simon that they are not safe when her mother is taken. There is only way to get her mother back.
The team joins up with other shadow hunters and they fight against demons to get Clary's mother back. There are many disgusting creatures and they could have dialed it down a bit on the grossness of some of the creatures. Some was unnecessary but of course this was a movie about demons. The love story was amazing between Clary and Jace and then of course there was the best friend that was in love with Clary, Simon. The only way to get Clary's mother back is to unlock the doors in her mind and find her memories that have been hidden from her for so long. There were quite a few twists and turns through out the movie and I think one of the biggest ones was that the main bad guy was Clary's father. This made the entire story different and the ending was amazing while Clary fights to find the way back to her mother Jace realizes that he is the son of the same person. After thinking they were in love they both find out that instead they are brother and sister. That was defiantly a Star Wars moment if I ever saw one.
Though there were some parts that were entirely too horror movie and not very believable if you put those aside and just look at it like a movie or a fantasy then it was a wonderful film. The acting was done very well. I only knew Jamie from Twilight as Caius and let me just say he was good in that movie but great in this one. Lily Collins was amazing in Abduction with Taylor Lautner and again in this movie. This was overall a very good movie.
