Critic Reviews of "Mortal Engines"Tribune News ServiceDecember 17, 2018
Visually, it's busy, hefty and propulsive, but emotionally and thematically, it's as light as air. These engines could have used a bit more in the tank.New YorkerDecember 17, 2018
The stakes are enormous, but the outcome is neither here nor there.ReelViewsDecember 14, 2018
One of the most impressive examples of "world building" in recent years, surpassing such contenders as Valerian, Cloud Atlas, and even the recent Star Wars episodes.New York PostDecember 14, 2018
Most of "Mortal Engines" is a wearying blast of CGI and genre-cribbing.RogerEbert.comDecember 14, 2018
How did this truly crummy movie get made?Arizona RepublicDecember 14, 2018
"Mortal Engines" is an entertaining movie if you don't ask too many questions of the story and stick to what's put in front of you onscreen.Film FrenzyDecember 21, 2018
The plot is both daft and derivative, and the commonplace YA elements end up overtaking the welcome WTF moments by the end. But the world-building is spectacular and almost makes this worth the price of admission.Splice TodayDecember 21, 2018
Answers a burning question: What if Mad Max: Fury Road had sucked?Laramie Movie ScopeDecember 21, 2018
This big budget, effects-laden movie about a strange post-apocalyptic world where predator cities roll around on tank-like treads looks great, but the story of romance and revenge is just barely adequate.Double ToastedDecember 20, 2018
The last two acts drag it down... it just goes Star Wars.ChrisStuckmann.comDecember 20, 2018
This should've been amazing. Even the ending owes itself to another film...it feels like a bunch of movies we've seen before, that are better than this.
