Review: City of Ember

Movie Rating: ★★★★★★★½☆☆ 

City of Ember

I don’t generally watch films that aren’t rated R, and I watch kids movies even less frequently. But this one was exceptional.

A surprising cast (Bill Murray, Tim Robbins, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Mackenzie Crook, Martin Landau) and a story I hadn’t heard mention of before made for a very pleasant flick. Cut from the same cloth as The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe and Bridge to Terabithia, this was an entertaining and fantastic children’s film. A solid story, great special effects and a just-believable-enough fantasy premise made this worth paying for.

Netflix streaming via the XBox360.
