Movie Review: The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones 2013

No comments :


Title: The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones
Language: English
Genre: Action/ Adventure/ Drama
Running Time: 120 Minute

Synopsis:-
When her mother disappears, Clary Fray learns that she descends from a line of warriors who protect our world from demons. She joins forces with others like her and heads into a dangerous alternate New York called Downworld.


What do I think about it:-

If I were to sum it all in a nutshell, the movie pretty much sucked. 

Cramping a book into a single movie was never an easy task especially when you need to actually catch the essence of the story and film it to attract none book readers and movie goers alike. 

City Of Bones flops to an extend in which it will probably fail both it's readers and viewers at the same time, sloppy writing and flow with bad acting and direction sprinkled with failing CGI and tons of badly written dialogues is just a few of the many reason why this film is a nightmare you itch to forget. 

With the rise of teenage novels becoming "blockbusters", City Of Bones actually tries too hard to impress rather than just let things flow, with in your face " epic" soundtracks coming on whenever something seemingly cool happens but in actuality it's nothing breath taking or visually creative.

Useless villains who seemed to be confused on what they are doing, characters with split personalities in decision making and a over dosage of forceful plot twists that were all unable to be expressed over the 2 hour film made the film unbearable for me.

Looking at how it is the first of many books and film ( oh heck no!) It fails to introduce the setting well and it definitely fails in character development. 

It's lack of engaging story, character and fluency in all makes me hard to believe that it would actually reflect what the book is all about.

Rating: 0.5/5

"The film is anti climatic from the first 15 minutes up till the end, what was the villains main purpose, what's so awesome about the shadow hunters and why is this downworld so dangerous are just a few of the questions I have for the film."
