Not a good portrayal of the book. by sdbart
It was good but some things left me unhappy about who the movie was made off of the book. The ending left a lot to be desired. They way they ended it it...


Anazing by Kikibug823
Very good Jaces character as well as Clary's character are portrayed the best..... A lot was changed from the book but still a good movie
