Highly Suspect Reviews: Mortal Engines

Peter Jackson and Frank Walsh produce and co-write this adaptation of the YA novel(s) of the same name. Imagine a post-war-devastated world where (somehow) a lot of humanity has survived by turning their cities into giant mobile tanks that roam the wastelands looking for resources. And bigger cities prey on smaller ones. Now imagine Hugo Weaving playing the evil guy, some teens in love jumping and swinging off of things, lots of CG, and a zombie terminator. You got yerself some Mortal Engines movie right there. How is it? Listen to Chris, Ben, Alan, and Marco tell you all about it.
