It might seem like "Twilight" time again, but this familiar-feeling adventure is adapted from a separate set of best-selling books (by Cassandra Clare). Lily Collins ("Mirror Mirror") plays the young heroine, whose mother's (Lena Headey) disappearance clues her into her heritage.
She's a descendant of demon slayers, and she uncovers a world beneath New York that puts her to the test of living up to her ancestors' skills. Co-stars include Jamie Campbell Bower, Jonathan Rhys Meyers ("Dracula"), CCH Pounder and Jared Harris ("Mad Men"). DVD extras: two "making-of" documentaries; deleted scenes; music video. *** (PG-13: AS, V) (Also on Blu-ray and On Demand)
