New world, old intrigue in the ”Mortal engines”
MORTAL ENGINES Directed by Christian Rivers. By: Hera Hilmar, Hugo Weaving, Jihae, Robert Sheehan, Leila George and Stephen Lang.
ADVENTURE. A new cinematic world - but much is familiar. There are new clothes, new scenery, new specialeffektr and new vehicles. Vehicles?! There are entire cities that are running around in a desert-Europe after the disaster.
We are a thousand years in the future. Sextiominuterskriget destroyed a large part of the earth, and many survivors go around in the giant cities on wheels. London is one such, a rovstad chasing up smaller villages like the old-time pirate ship.\\nFörutsättningarna be explained effectively in the introduction. A young female hero is out for revenge. A sympathetic young man working in the London museum, and discover the shady things. Science fiction, but the very recognition. Not least in the different variants of the parent-child relationship.
And the action. One can think of the ”Star wars” and old war movies in some of the film's airstrikes. The film's world looks complicated, but the plot takes easy shortcuts. The bitwise illogical. Much effects. Too violent for kids, too childish for adults.
