Visionary filmmaker Peter Jackson presents a startling new adventure unlike any you've seen before. Hundreds of years after our civilization was destroyed, a new world has emerged.

Mortal Engines stars Hera Hilmar, Robert Sheehan, Jihae Kim, Hugo Weaving, and Stephen Lang.




  • Ok to rent

    Seems as though the producers rushed the editing and used the action sequences to make up for hurried and unnecessary character development. As the action heightens, the movie slows for several “nothing” scenes that only serve to frustrate the viewer. I do not recommend but you should watch it anyways as some of the visuals are pretty cool.
  • Outstanding and very entertaining

    By Starrman4God
    We watched this as a family and it was unanimous, by one one of our favorite movies. Want to read the series now. Hope they make the sequel! Great family entertainment.

    Awesome movie!! Bought it afterwards!
  • I enjoyed it. - high post production quality.

    By DJ Kingsgold
    Good movie to just escape into Hollywood magic. Great visuals, and high post production quality. The color palette and color grading of the film was done very well, and the CGI was believable. Acting was just ok, but didn’t take away from the draw of the film. I enjoyed it.
  • Movie F ++

    By Mr.Take2Review

  • Utter garbage

    By Corvenn
    Visuals, great. Characters, there were characters? Story? Pick one, there were like 20 running around all at once rushing to say something and managed to say nothing. If I’m not mistaken, the space ships look ok a lot like the Petr Jackson AR demo he did a few years ago. Was this movie a trial run for AR tech because the story was just terrible
  • Between OK And Good

    By brslc
    They put so much work into this movie, you can hardly pan it. It feels like they copied a lot of other movies. A lot to criticize. Stupid male hero. Lucky lead female. Outside forces always save the day. Forgetable.
  • First real Stempunk Movie

    By Jaress
    What a wonderful ride this was. Not too serious, but a fun fantasy, and, even though it's placed in a future fictional universe, it actually qualifies as the first real steampunk movie I've ever come across. I very much enjoyed the fun of it and the depth of detail in it's world. It hinted at a fully realized past hisatory without boring you by trying to fill that out, which is a real accomplishment. The only thing that detracted from the flick to me was Hester's complete submission to Tom - she's a stron =c character who should have stood on her own, Besides that, loved this for it's lightness and details, to the point I will buy it.

    By Frenchy in LA
    The movie marvels in creating its own universe on an unimagineable scale, BUT....we've seen it all before: Star Wars, Stardust, Anything by Terry Gilliam, ESPECIALLY Into the Badlands, definitely Suckerpunch, and if the movie has one issue, is that it's bot clear who we should root for. A massive ride, yes. but could have been more fun.
  • Awesome

    By yea rite
    Forget the bad reviews. This was awesome and cgi was so realistic than I ever seen before. Heck I buy it. Why rent. Redbox is keeps raising their price and the itune rental is just as bad with their price. At $6, yeah right. Who would spend that to rent. Redbox is at $2 or more now, depends on dvd or blue rays. Keeps getting higher. Used to be 99 cents. So buy it. You all will love the movie like I did.
