City Of Ember stars Bill Murray, Tim Robbins, Martin Landau, Saoirse Ronan and Harry Treadaway!

MONSTER HOUSE director Gil Kenan takes the helm for this children's fantasy about two young heroes who attempt to solve an ancient mystery in time to prevent their underground city from being swallowed by darkness. The City of Ember was built over 200 year ago, deep below the earth, where the destruction of a mass-scale disaster couldn't reach it. Equipped with a massive generator and vast supplies, the people of Ember have thrived happily for generations -- but the city wasn't meant to be lived in forever. The generator is breaking down and the supplies are running out, but two centuries in isolation have robbed the Emberites of their knowledge -- nobody knows how the electric lights work anymore, and nobody understands that there's something beyond the city besides darkness. Nobody, that is, besides Lina (Saoirse Ronan) and Doon (Harry Treadaway), two teenagers who still have the hope that everyone else has lost to ignorance and apathy -- not to mention a sheet of instructions left by the Builders themselves explaining how to leave the city. But the 200-year-old paper is falling apart, and pieces are missing. So with the lights threatening to flicker out for the last time and leave Ember in darkness forever, Lina and Doon set out on an adventure through the streets, sewers, and dark caverns of Ember to put the pieces back together. To solve the mystery, they'll have to get inside the Builders' heads, and avoid the grasp of corrupt Mayor Cole (Bill Murray), who wants to keep Ember the way it is -- no matter what the cost.

x2, gilliamesque

Thought this was a great kids film and above average.

I have heard of this and wanted to see it in the cinema (I'm a sucker for a *good* kids film) but never got round to it. £5.49 for a blu-ray does seem like a good deal - cheaper than it would have cost me to see it in the cinema so I think it's a good deal even if the movie isn't the best.

I had never heard of it until I saw it on an in-flight entertainment system. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it to families with children!
I've not got a blu ray player but it looks like a good price for a decent movie.

Was it a kids film! Watched it on Sky one evening and did indeed what to burn the city to ember by the end of it. Is this the best kids get nowadays! The special effects on Never Ending Story made this film look like 20 years old!

Nice Youngsters film - quite enjoyable imho.

**** film
