Watch The Mortal Instruments City of Bones Online Or Download The Mortal Instruments City of Bones Movie Free. The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones is a novel-turned-movie that has had millions of readers thirsting for an on screen explosion of mythical forces. There are two conventional questions that are routinely on the minds of voracious readers when their favorite books become, potentially, their favorite movies as well. First, and rather obviously, is the novel The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones similar to the film, similarly titled? Second, have the director (Harold Zwart) and the stars (Lily Collins, Jamie Campbell Bower, Robert Sheehan, and Lena Headley) given moviegoers something special to remember them by? In the case of the movie The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, casual theater-goers will marvel at the summoning of supernatural forces en masse for their viewing entertainment. However, and regrettably, most diehard fans of the Cassandra Clare novel are now opining that their heroine (the author) has sold out and allowed her work to be largely ignored for the sole purpose of turning a gargantuan profit.

Clary (the lovely Lily Collins) is a natural-born shadow hunter, a gift her mother Jocelyn (Lena Headey from “Game of Thrones”) has kept secret since she turned three years old. While spending time with her awkward best friend Simon (Robert Sheehan) at a poetry reading, and then at an undead night club, Clary meets Jace (Jamie Campbell Bower) and begins to learn about the existence of a world beyond her wildest dreams. During her first encounter with the shadow world of vampires, werewolves, demons, and conjurors, Clary is unaware that her beloved mother is under attack by Valentine’s (Jonathan Rhys Myers) servants. Valentine’s thugs are searching for one of the three so-called “mortal instruments”, sacred relics of unimaginable mystical power. These mortal instruments possess divine powers that are capable of turning mundanes (ordinary people) into shadow hunters. The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones introduces the Mortal Cup, also nicknamed the “Angel’s Cup.” Valentine is in a frenzy to possess the cup in order to divine a new race of shadow hunters at his command. Essentially, he wants to perfect the bloodlines of his race. In order to gain the loyalty of followers, he confesses (falsely or truly) to Jace and Clary that he is their father. This leads to confusion and their brewing romance effectively smashes against a concrete wall. Demons are welcomed into the human realm and all undead breaks loose.
Watch The Mortal Instruments City of Bones Online Or Download The Mortal Instruments City of Bones Movie Free. The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones movie omits entire chapters from the book that are downright thrilling and necessary for the story to progress. Moreover, it feels as though director Zwart cherry-picked the most screen-suited portions to adapt. While there is absolutely nothing wrong with this sort of a directorial choice, the fact remains that in the process author Cassandra Clare’s book is being distorted and shred to pieces. What remains after entire chapters have been excised is a movie that is formulaic. The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones contains a Twilight-esque love triangle, vampires battling werewolves, and there is a Lord of the Rings style quest for obtaining relics. Watching this movie at the IMAX is indeed a treat. Moviegoers oblivious to the existence of the books will find The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones to be like an episode of Underworld or Bloodrayne. Frankly, as a more observant film critic, it is obvious that this first movie is just the beginning and the entire production crew need time to adapt and immerse themselves into their roles. For a first movie in a franchise, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones is a 5/10 for its scintillating cinematography and potentially exciting plot. The missing five points can be attributed to its brevity as compared with the novel it is based on and because the actors do not accurately represent their characters, at least as written. Only one howlllllllllllllllllllllll up this time dear readers.

The biggest fallout of something terribly mediocre doing well is that it spawns a whole generation of mediocrity based on the same theme, with the aim of cashing in on the mania. The Twilight franchise, then, is the torchbearer for teen romances dolled up with monsters and/or fantastical adventure settings. So Twilight led to another franchise Hunger Games (which, I must admit, was guilty fun) of which the second film is on its way, and the recent other Stephenie Meyer adaptation, The Host.

The latest to follow this trend is The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones – the first film adaptation from a set of books by Cassandra Clare. So exhaustingly inane and utterly ridiculous is the film that when I walked out, I couldn’t believe I had only been in there for only a little over two hours. Now, I’m scared of just how many books are left in the series. This first film hasn’t even had time enough to gather all of its brickbats, but the sequel is already underway.

Clary and her geeky best friend Simon get drawn into a world of werewolves and vampires and magical portals; a world where even Bach was supposedly a Shadowhunter and wrote music that could tell a demon apart by its reaction to it – no, I’m not making this up.

Packed with so much exposition, explanation, back-story and mythology, but with clichés that rival all of this in equal measure - the film is such a cumbersome watch. It just never eases up on the levels of idiocy it so inevitably keeps crossing. I haven’t read the source material, so I don’t know; but it seems like a lot of this has more to do with the direction than with the original novel.

Harald Zwart, director of Agent Cody Banks and Jaden Smith’s The Karate Kid, directs this film with what seems like alarming intent to ensure that it never separates itself from the other typical teen movies I mentioned earlier. This is the kind of film where it begins raining indoors in the middle of a kiss. It is, of course, conveniently attributed to something else later, but the point was clearly the kiss in the rain.

The film also keeps giving you a Harry Potter-Constantine déjà vu, which isn’t necessarily a good thing. Apart from never being able to shake off the been-there-seen-that feel, the film just doesn’t seem to have an original word in its screenplay.

The film does have some interestingly executed VFX pieces, but that’s just the opposite of me nitpicking – I was left determinedly hunting for anything at all to take away from the film. With its generous display of hooded or skeleton-shaped gargoyles and statues and a camera that continuously seems to want to establish setting with every new scene, the film tries hard to create a sense of foreboding and danger - which I admit does happen once in a while. However, anything good achieved comes undone with the next familiar fantasy-teen-romance-trope or next annoying back-story-exposition that the film takes you through.
It doesn’t help that the performances in the film are as mundane as can be. Even the known faces, Lena Headey and Jonathan Rhys Meyers amongst others, are left with roles that often make you wonder how they kept a straight face through it. The young trio who are left with the task of carrying the film give it their all, but there’s only so much one can do when everything else around is how it is in this film. The film is just so draining and wearisome, that every time you spot the Mortal Cup that everyone’s running after, you wish you had some strong wine to go with; downing a cup would make this film infinitely more tolerable.
