Well TMI fans, its been quite an emotional rollercoaster for the past 3- 4 weeks hasn't it? Its a wonder were all still breathing, I mean are hearts have been broken in half and shred to tiny pieces! From Clace to Sizzy feels and don't get me started on how excited I am to see Malec develop in later movies! So I expect you've all seen the movie at this stage? and if you haven't what the HELL are you waiting for?!
This movie in my opinion had everything. Action, Romance, Fantasy and perfect comedic timing, and all in suitable doses! Its nothing like The Twilight Saga or Harry Potter (and I'm a twihard!) Its actually better! The romance isn't too overdone like it is in twilight and its not a cheesy chick flick either. The only reason these books and movies are compared to the likes of Twilight is because they fit in the same genre. But if you have read the books you need to remember that the movie is a stand alone piece and is not going to be EXCATLY the same!
I have to say I have seen lily Collins in a few other movies such as, Mirror Mirror and Abduction and to be honest, I felt her acting very exaggerated. But in all fairness she pulled out very well as Clary fray and I, coming from a fan of the books perspective, was pleased with her portrayal. Jamie Campbell bower was another actor I didn't really know much about. I had seen him in Twilight (Obviously) but other than that, nothing. I'm most certainly team Simon so the person who played Jace was never really going to be a big concern for me. I know he got quite a lot of backlash from fans of the books but I have to say, he played his character very well and I was impressed.
Now clearly, Robert Sheehan was born to be Simon Lewis! he was epic! Made me laugh and reduced me to tears. His comedic timing is SUPERB and he has that lovable vibe and adorable face. Who can resist the little thing? and he WAS a badass despite his nerdy appearance! Do not be fooled! What did you think of the movie? Do you agree with the casting after watching the movie?
