In New York City, Clary Fray, a seemingly ordinary teenager, learns that she is descended from a line of Shadowhunters — half-angel warriors who protect humanity from evil forces. After her mother disappears, Clary joins forces with a group of Shadowhunters and enters Downworld, an alternate realm filled with demons, vampires, and a host of other creatures. Clary and her companions must find and protect an ancient cup that holds the key to her mother's future.

Well, not bad and certainly worth watching. But it if you're expecting something as epic as Lord of the Rings or fantastic as the Harry Potter series you will be left disappointed for sure: City of Bones doesn't have enough depths, both regarding plot as well as characters, and cast the also not above average IMHO.
I'm not sure whether I am going to watch the sequel(s) and most certainly am never going to watch this first installment again...

I thought the whole Twilight franchise was awful but despite the dreadfulness of those movies, the plot was never unclear to even those with IQ deficiencies. I can't say the same about The Mortal Instruments.
