    Christian Rivers (Minutes Past Midnight) directs Hera Hilmar as Hester Shaw, a mysterious woman living on a mobile industrial city seeking revenge for her murdered mother. Co-producers Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh bring Philip Reeve’s young adult novel, Mortal Engines, to life—set in a distant future where mobile cities hunt smaller towns and dismantle those they catch for raw materials.
     What this film lacks in intertwining storylines it makes up for in action-packed and in-your-face sequences. Don’t let the Peter Jackson (The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, and King Kong) name across the top of the movie poster fool you—this film lacks his magic touch and fluid storytelling that we see in his previous work. Overall, the film is fun to see in theaters but don’t expect much in terms of storyline. (129 min.)

Weekly Poll
Should Congress fund President Trump's border wall?

Yes. Our southern border is in crisis!
No. It's a waste of tax money!
We don't need an actual wall. Just beef up border security.
I'm more worried about the Canadian border.
