Once not so long ago the teenage cinema was addressed generally to a man’s half of the young audience. The film calculated on youth audience usually was filled with robots, cars, pursuits, firefights. It was now moved heaven and earth – Harry Potter balanced interests of boys and little girls, and with "Twilight" young young ladies at all went over to the offensive. Now experts in marketing already quite seriously are guided by female audience as the most influential at a choice of films for viewing, and respectively, demanding "the" cinema. Also numerous followers vampire оборотнической the twilight saga from here proceed, five films according to Stephenie Meyer’s novels it appeared insufficiently.
Different degree of success "sumerkozamenitel" you can remember without effort is and "Beautiful creatures", and «The ruby book», and to some extent «Heat of our bodies», and even mayerovsky "Guest". But «The city of bones» – history, perhaps, the closest to "Twilight". It is its plus, and same its minus.

It is represented that cash prospects at a picture are very quite good. The literary primary source already has impressive army of fans, the benefit the book is written easily and not overloaded with morals.

It is difficult to violate the truth, having noticed that the lion’s share of success of "Twilight" is castes. And what with actors in "Tools"? Reaction of fans to the film and during viewing prompts that with it here everything is all right. Lily Collins will be by all means crushed (such is a fate of main characters, look at the same Stewart) though it obviously does not heat a picture. Jamie Campbell Bauer can play more convincingly, but the Shakespearean passion here from it is not required, and to be pleasant to spectators it is able, and simply silently looking from under a hood. Weaker Robert Shiyen looks, but it successfully dilutes pathos of supernatural beings with quite ordinary human humour. And here the senior generation of actors forces to feel dickey – Johnathan Reese Myers without restraint changes, Lena Hidi all film hides in a coma or memoirs, Jared Harris squeezes out each scene. Their game gives fabulousness to the events on the screen in a counterbalance of pompous gravity from which plays youth. When this balance manages to be held, the cinema looks with interest.
