Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Except for watching Bill Murray get attacked by a giant mole (something unique in Billy boy's career so far) this sci-fi fantasy aimed at kids feels wan and warmed over.
Fresh: Even if it occasionally goes off course, City of Ember provides audiences with a thought-provoking and family-friendly adventure.
Fresh: The story, based on Jeanne Duprau's novel of the same name, is beautifully constructed. It builds until it reaches the point that it's one edge-of-your-seat moment after another.
Rotten: It's an unfortunate end to a promising movie.
Love this movie!
I honestly don't see why everyone hates this movie so much! I've seen the movie and read the books, they're both wonderful! Unlike many movies based off of books, The City of Ember portrayed its book self very well! If you enjoyed the book, which most people have, it's most likely you will equally enjoy this movie! If not, I bet you'll still enjoy it!
I dont get why everyone is complaining
i saw this movie with my mom the other night, and we both thought it was really good. there are better movies out there, but thats not saying much. i thought it was well done; the under-world set was amazing. i read the book about 2 years ago. i dont remember much about it, but i could follow the plot line of this movie just fine. i honestly dont see what everyones complaining about.
It was a great movie but I guess is was harder to understand if you didn't read the book. I read them so it made more sense.
