sidebars, this sprawling action fantasy is packed with supernatural creatures, humour that blunts its more horrific edges and leather-clad actors from goth-lite central casting. It is based on the first of six bestsellers for young adults by Cassandra Clare. The plot-heavy story boils down to Brooklyn teen Lily Collins learning she's a powerful Shadowhunter, part of a secret society veiled from reality by magic and tasked with protecting humanity from destructive demonic forces. Both good and evil sides seek possession of the Mortal Cup, an enchanted goblet that creates the half-angel warriors.
-remake director Harald Zwart always keeps things interesting among the impressive CGI swirls of werewolves, vampires, runic spells and a
-style dimensional portal. Once its relentless self-aggrandisement subsides, the story becomes quite absorbing as a cute love triangle moves centre stage and dark destinies point to further sequels.
A teenager discovers she is descended from a race of half-human, half-angel warriors whose duty is to defend the world from demons. When her mother disappears, she joins a group of the magical beings on a dangerous journey into an alternate version of New York inhabited by strange creatures. Fantasy adventure, starring Lily Collins, Jamie Campbell Bower, Lena Headey and Jonathan Rhys Meyers.
