“Mortal Instruments” is an action packed film geared toward the younger crowd. In it we find Clary, a young girl who is beginning to find out who she really is. During her search for her kidnapped mother, she finds out that demons do exist. Of course, so do Vampires, Werewolves, Witches, Warlocks and Shadow Hunters (no Zombies here). The film is full of demonic symbolism and practices as well as a fair amount of violence. The plot is a little convoluted and jumps between fighting scenes and passionate ones at will. Due to the overwhelming demonic content, sexuality and violence as well as one inappropriate use of the name of “Jesus” we cannot approved this film for family viewing.
