mortal instruments movie

A young adult fiction binge has broken out in "Mortal Instruments: City of Bones." Like an 80-car pill-up, all of the current tropes of teenage fantasy here careen into one another: the young heroine with previously unknown powers; the gothic mix of heavenly and hellish supernatural creatures; the breathless romance with a young Brit of angelic cheekbones.
