And last but not least, I’d like to talk about the cast. I could talk about the cast for hours on end as I felt that they did a great job at portraying their roles. Jamie managed to capture Jace so well; there was the right amount of cockiness smothered in self adoration with a hint of vulnerability. Lily did a wonderful job with Clary; it’s nice to know that she was a fan of the series before there was a movie in the making. I would've liked to have seen more of Isabelle and Alec but I guess you can’t put them into scenes which they don’t fit in with. I just think that it would be nice to have seen her flirty side and Alecs bro-mance/fascination with Jace. The actor that surprised me the most though was Robert Sheehan. I wasn't particularly keen on Simon’s character in the book but with the movie I loved him! Maybe I'm being biased though as Robbies one of my favourite actors anyway. However I don’t think we got to see his full potential as he really is a hilarious actor with a lot of energy. The rest of the cast were awesome, Jonathan Rhys Meyers bought intensity to Valentines character which I didn't think was possible! I really think he should lose the braids though; it’s not a good look for him.
