For generations, the people of the City of Ember have flourished in an amazing world of glittering lights. But Ember's once powerful generator is failing and the great lamps that illuminate the city are starting to flicker. Now, two teenagers, in a race...
I agree with previous guy, it started of as though it would be a nice surprise but not much drama no real climax.
I don't understand why the two kids are the only ones that care about the degenerating situation.
Having read the book prior to watching the movie, I felt that the movie cut out quite a bit of the details which were, for me, the most compelling parts of the story. The movie was unable to fully develop the characters and plot; any attempts to do so were also quite weak, which would explain the comments on the boring bits.
The movie also introduces some additional out-of-this-world elements, giving the movie a fairy tale/magical twist which I felt ruined the plot's "credibility".
However, I think the movie set and props were great and the visuals were commendable. Great job also by Saoirse as Lina and Harry as Doon.
This movie is worth a watch, just don't expect too much and enjoy being temporarily transported into the City of Ember. You can expect better from reading the book!
The premise is exciting and the ending was great! Enjoyable movie
