City of Ember

This is a film about two kids wanting to save the city whose generator is failing.

The concept is rather very creative yet it somehow does not meet the expectations of children in fantasy and imagination. The whole world is packaged in a fantasy world yet its presentation is horrifyingly practical, almost as dull as day-to-day life. Probably the challenge is to make each day into an exciting saga; but there is no time to reflect on it in this film.

The City of Ember on the other hand is a truly remarkable film - of hope, sacrifice, and courage. "Pursue your dreams no matter what" echoes throughout the film. There is always a way out of things, and it begins inside our hearts.

Rating: 3.5/5
