Foul-mouthed mutant mercenary Wade Wilson (AKA. Deadpool), brings together a team of fellow mutant rogues to protect a young boy with supernatural abilities from the brutal, time-traveling cyborg, Cable.
A mysterious young woman, Hester Shaw, emerges as the only one who can stop a giant, predator city on wheels devouring everything in its path. Feral, and fiercely driven by the memory of her mother, Hester joins forces with Tom Natsworthy, an outcast from London, along with Anna Fang, a dangerous outlaw with a bounty on her head.
Christian Rivers' first full feature film as a director. He previously directed a short and a section of an anthology, and was storyboard artist/special effects designer on Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings and Hobbit films (who is also the producer of Mortal Engines). See more »
When Hester and Tom are rescued by the old couple in the centipede-like craft, they share a small room. Hester, while lying on her back, shares her sad life story. A tear rolls down her cheek, but, given the horizontal position she's in, this would be impossible. The tear should roll pass the side of her face. See more »
Its like Howls moving castel, Fury roads and The hunger games combined
First things first, I was lucky enough to be able to go to the pre-premier in Amsterdam and watched the movie in IMAX and I highly recomand watching it in this format.
Basicly what you are watching is a movie that almost seems to aim to be the next terrible tween trilogy. But... the story is not half bad. Filled with plotholes, obnoxious characters and refusing to explain just WHY THEY HAVE TO DRIVE THEIR CITIES!? but overall enjoyable.
The true attrection however is the scenery and boy is it worth it. The cities look amazing, the planes, buildings and everything in the film is dressed to impress. It made me want to crawl through the screen and just marvel at the beauty of it all.
So yeah! The movie is kinda like watching an anime like Howls moving castle without subtitles. I have no idee what they are trying to say but it sure looks nice.
