The movie was “OK”. It didn’t follow the books really well and that was a big let down. It was better than Beautiful Creatures though (they ruined that movie)
What I don’t get is that (according to an article I read) Constantin Films doesn’t understand what went wrong and they think it was marketing. No it was that you changed the story to much. Marketing was second.
And PLEASE don’t replace the actors in city of ashes or you’ll kill the franchise.
Here’s the link to the article I read. link
Oh a note about the first movie. Why when Clary’s friend get kidnapped and they are in such a hurry does she have to paint her nails (toes included) before going? WTF?!? Do you have to look like trash before going on missions?
