We got the biggest bomb of the year folks! This is one steaming pile of hot garbage.
I really do hate being that guy who rips things to shreds. A lot of hard work goes into making any movie. Hundreds of people put a ton of time and energy into each project, but sometimes you just need to tell it like it is. Mortal Engines STINKS, I haven’t seen the movie, but my god that trailer told me everything I need to know.
Two words come across the screen, Peter Jackson and that immediately gets you going. This man is responsible for the Lord of The Rings, turns out he’s not directing, not a good start. They want to suck you in with thinking he’s heavily involved, he’s not. He might have been responsible for getting Hugo Weaving to star. This seems big and bold, something he is known for, but it doesn’t really have any of the Peter Jackson DNA on it, at least in my mind. The concept seems pretty cool, but unfortunately the execution looks just terrible, sad really.
I feel like I have seen this movie a hundred times over the last decade. Some rebellious kid wants to take down some evil organization all on her own. Only for them to be recognized as the symbol of hope. I just can’t do it anymore. This has all the makings to be a massive flop, let me reiterate, this will be a massive flop.
See for yourself.
