  1. NCMBianchi's rating of the film Mortal Engines

  2. Daniel's rating of the film Mortal Engines

    I unironically enjoyed this one. Flawed yes but it is a pity this bombed so hard. I wanted to see more.

  3. bryanvmh's rating of the film Mortal Engines

    With Lord of the Rings people as its backing, it is stunning how blatantly this movie struggles with scale. How big is MechaLondonOnWheels? How big is anything after "the tectonic plates shifted"? Leads have no chemistry, and no amount of cgi romantic purple sky can fix that. Get that it is supposed to look and feel lived in, but it just comes off looking like a cheap version of an expensive movie.

  4. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film Mortal Engines

    I respect it for being so un-apologetically weird and different and it's kind of hard not to be amazed by the production design. Too bad the characters are bland and generic, but hey at least it's different and singular and in the age of franchises and multi connected universes, that's all it needed to be...

  5. msmichel's rating of the film Mortal Engines

    There might indeed be a good film hiding somewhere in this often chaotic mess. Choc full of visual ideas but very light on story this Peter Jackson produced film suffers from a lack of fully fleshed out story or characters.

  6. J.J. Jake Gittes's rating of the film Mortal Engines

    Visually it is very busy, hefty and propulsive, but emotionally & thematically it is as light as air. An immense amount of computer-generated effort is packed into this production, however, just only a tiny fraction went into the characters and script. Dull.

  7. ΞRIC B∆Ɖ TASTΞ's rating of the film Mortal Engines

    Minions, Twinkies... - yeah, we lived in a great world.

  8. Erica Narduzzi's rating of the film Mortal Engines

    "Come ti ho creato, così ti distruggo." è una cosa che mi diceva anche mia madre quando si arrabbiava. L'idea delle città predatrici è originale, specialmente in un filone cinematografico trito e ritrito come il post apocalittico, ma il resto della sceneggiatura è piuttosto banale. Visivamente spettacolare, ma senza sostanza e la sola idea veramente bella del film (le città come macchine) è sprecata nel trailer.

  9. Ionut Moldovianu's rating of the film Mortal Engines

  10. RumbleFish's rating of the film Mortal Engines

    Stupefacente dal punto di vista visivo questa nuova promettente saga (alla Hunger Games) che non si è filato nessuno.

  11. HKFanatic's rating of the film Mortal Engines

    "Mortal Engines" feels like what would have been a 5-minute 'proof of concept' CG short film created by Square-Enix in 2005 to promote an upcoming "Final Fantasy" game before the launch of the Playstation 3—yet here it's preposterously extended to two hours. It's been awhile since I've seen such lavish design and production values exhausted on a property that is this decidedly uncool. Honestly, I kind of dug it.

  12. Vallgar's rating of the film Mortal Engines

  13. hubertguillaud's rating of the film Mortal Engines

    La plus grande débauche d'effets spéciaux ne saura jamais compenser l'inexistence d'un scénario ou la caricature des personnages.

  14. pluviosity's rating of the film Mortal Engines

    It's not the worst, but it's still guilty of sterotypical elements that made people groaned and rolled their eyeball at the fantasy YA genre. At least Weta had their fun though.

  15. Tudor Buhatel's rating of the film Mortal Engines

  16. João Rocha's rating of the film Mortal Engines

    why everyone is hating this one? I quite enjoyed it. really nice visuals...

  17. Emiliauskas's rating of the film Mortal Engines

    this is literally one of the worst movies I've ever seen. a shame really, considering how beautiful the visuals were

  18. ABVH's rating of the film Mortal Engines

    It's like giving the most expensive toys to the least imaginative child.

  19. VENIMOS LOS JODIMOS Y NOS FUIMOS's rating of the film Mortal Engines

    Vistosa, entretenida y totalmente predecible cinta en la cuál resulta evidente la mano de Peter Jackson para conseguir espéctaculos multimillonarios con miras a convertirse en una nueva y redituable franquicia, pero que a pesar de los cuantiosos medios y los talentos involucrados, no logra convencer del todo, por lo que la muy probable cancelación de las secuelas, termina por no importarle gran cosa al espectador.

  20. Jacob Bearchum's rating of the film Mortal Engines

    This is rad af. It has plenty of problems but at least it's visually amazing, sounds amazing, and has a really solid score. Not to mention it actually bothers to be about something. Easily a top 5 blockbuster for me this year.

  21. †. Kennedy Pope's rating of the film Mortal Engines

    I've been mulling this one over since I saw it, and I'm thinking the same things I thought when I saw Valerian; really cool high-concept adaptation largely unknown within the U.S; totally fails to bring in an audience because the concept can't be explained within a 2-minute trailer; and fails to make full sense of all the moving plot points for a new audience. Despite all that, 60% of the time I liked it just fine.
