1.5/5

Director Harold Zwart previously helmed the immensely successful “The Karate Kid” remake, so he knows how to craft a coherent and moderately entertaining movie. This is not the case with “City of Bones.” The film lacks a cohesive structure, a thoughtful narrative and aside from top billed star Lily Collins, it features some pretty dreadful acting.

“Mortal Instruments: City of Bones” is the most one-dimensional film that has graced the silver screen since the last time Adam Sandler dressed up like a woman and paraded around for two hours. Other than a few moments of dazzling visuals, this film is completely forgettable and what the industry refers to as a “one and done.” The second installment,“Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes,” is slated for a 2014 release. It seems audience members will be lining up for this series for the next few years to come, although the number of ticket buyers will probably fall far short of pleasing to the movie’s producers.
