About this movie

Visionary filmmaker Peter Jackson presents a startling new adventure unlike any you‘ve seen before. Hundreds of years after our civilization was destroyed, a new world has emerged. A mysterious young woman named Hester Shaw leads a band of outcasts in the fight to stop London – now a giant predator city on wheels – from devouring everything in its path.

It seems as if animators had some time and figured that they could put cities onto wheels and end up with a movie. The story is lacklustre at best, the dialogues are badly written and not engaging. The acting is passable, but also not much to write home about. The whole movie feels like a massive drag. I hate myself for spending 6 € on this CGI hotchpotch with a tacked on story-line.

If we could literally see what our combined actions looked like as a species then it would look like something akin to Mortal Engines. Yes, it is that kind of movie. Even the name ‘Mortal Engines’ signifies that nothing we create lasts forever. If the whole concept of mobile predator cities seems outlandish then remember it was intentionally meant to be so. The mobile cities are a powerful metaphor for the ridiculousness of our human engineered systems and how far we will go to protect them.

When i seen the trailer of this film i told to myself that I'm not gonna watch because of bad reviews but i was wrong the movie itself has many action-packed scenes that'll make you watch it once. The story seems like a normal one but the visual and cgi stands up for the stunning and appealing graphics! 4/5 👍
