Mortal Engines (2018) – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Mortal Engines is actually quite entertaining.  I say that like I’m shocked but to be honest I am a little – after all reviews have been pretty brutal across the board for this Peter Jackson produced CGI fest.  But there’s loads here to enjoy, even if it’s not without flaws.  Oh and those flaws… the story is weak, the film very much has a Star Wars lite vibe about it and not all the cast deliver.  BUT Mortal Engines rockets along with stunning visuals and some pretty impressive CGI effects and ideas on display.  It’s those core ideas that drive you through the weaker bits. Probably something to see in the cinema if you are at a loose end.

Best Bit: Time to eat a city…
