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.

Mortal Engines stars Hera Hilmar, Robert Sheehan, Jihae Kim, Hugo Weaving, and Stephen Lang.




  • A Joke

    By axelroark
    Really really really bad script and the acting was humorous. Mostly unwatchable.
  • Awesome

    By nolan reeve
    One of the best movies I’ve ever seen. I definitely recommend for those who like action/apocalyptic movies.
  • Loved it.

    Fun story. Great effects. Shame it lost money at the box office. I would have enjoyed sequels.
  • Not the best, not the worst

    Peter Jacksons movies since Lord of the rngs have been hit or miss pretty much and this one really is an exercise in the miss department. Its not terrible but the fleshing out of characters is a major mistep and you never really care enough about any of them to worry when they get into trouble. Even the major deaths are pretty hollow. The story itself is a good premise, but motivations are just not there for any of the characters. The only character I really cared about was a cyborg bad guy and that really sums up the film. Good special effects but not much else.
  • Great Film!

    Amazing CGI! I haven’t read any of the books but I thought the film was really enjoyable. Great action and good story line. I think this film is highly underrated.
  • I liked it

    I enjoyed it but didn't get the point of being on moving cities. I think if you want to see some good shows about moving cities then you should watch Gargantia on the verdurdus planet and Children of the whales. The animes have better reasons for living on a moving city.
  • Hated every bit of it, but low key it’s hilarious how bad it is

    By ilistentomusic(obviously)
    Did not do the novel any justice. Horrible script, nonsensical storyline, and very, very poor work on the characters. Amazing visuals, but that’s pretty much it. No effort put into making this even a decent film at all.
  • Great ideas, rushed storyline

    I never write reviews, but I had to try simply because this movie was so poorly received. It interested me that the movie could cost $150M yet barely gross half of that. That is an epic flop! The storyline was incredibly interesting, but overall the movie felt like watching Harry Potter if they had jammed all 7 books into one movie. I don’t know anything about the books for this series, but the concepts were really impressive. If anything, the movie may have caused me to buy the books, which never happens! It is a pretty bad movie overall but I am not going to rip it apart because the acting was fine, the effects and music were great, and the concepts were terrific. If anything, Peter Jackson needed to get more studio buy in so that this single movie could have developed over about three of them. Well, hopefully this helps someone. I say it is worth a two hour plane ride for sure!
  • I don’t get the bad reviews

    By Galinde
    Even though it looked cool when I saw the trailer, I didn’t buy this because the reviews were so bad. Recently I saw it for free in a hotel, I was really impressed, and I bought it. Sorry, this is a really, really underrated movie. First of all. It’s a really unique and novel concept in an era where Hollywood recycles their garbage better than anyone else. Secondly, the acting while not Oscar caliber isn’t bad. Hugo Weaving is actually pretty good. The special effects are great and the film is exciting. OK. I’m a sucker for post-apocalyptic sci-fi, but this is a very cool movie.
