Mortal Engines

100 Movies before we move: #40

Emmy says:
I’m in awe of the moving cities! This is gorgeous machinery. I was completely swept away by the tale, I don’t even care about how predictable it was. It was a spectacle. 9/10.

Jeff says:
My issue with this movie is physics. Giant mobile cities should not be able to move like that. It defies the laws of physics. There were sequences where the actors should have been in immediate peril, but they looked like they were remembering a sequence of steps not running for their lives. The characters were engaging – if not completely predictable and cliched. Bigger is not better, especially when you need CG to make it happen. 6/10.
