A weak storyline coupled with some annoying accents. I sat through most of this film wondering when the storyline was going to improve. It never did! The special effects were alright but it did little to add any interest to what was happening. It was essentially a Twilight knockoff that was just boring to watch. 4.5/10
City of bones is more CGI effects than serious movie. Script is confusing and strange. City of Bones doesn’t have anything to catch and storytelling is weak. None of the characters feels natural and familiar. I am sure that the story in book is much richer and stronger than here. Despite of that City of Bones is not too bad to watch. Especially if you compare it to Twilight-saga. It was good thing to go to see this movie without knowing much about it, so I was etertained enough to watch the whole movie. I just hope that if they are going to film more movies to this series they focus on characters more. Better script is unconditional if they want to succeed with this series.
