Ratings:3/5 Review By: Reza Noorani Site:  Times Of India

Scale is impressive in a movie, if there is substance to back it. So when Peter Jackson decided to produce ‘Mortal Engines’, a film that is based on the books by the same name, you know it will be on a big scale and there will be enough substance to back it. However, that is not the case here at all. While the concept is unique and the first few minutes are quite entertaining as you discover just how the cities evolved to run on steam engines, the film starts to lag when the other characters are slowly introduced. Given that the books have their own Universe, debutant director Christian Silver has tried hard to explain that and balance it with the stories of the characters. Alas, he could have done a much better job. Instead of trying to find balance, the filmmaker could have stuck with the spirit of the book, which already has a legion of fans.

Ratings:5/5 Review By: Rashid Irani Site:  Hindustan Times

The action sequences are visceral. And for once even the flashbacks and slow-motion shots are executed flawlessly and to unsettling effect. Also noteworthy is the deft intercutting (courtesy film editor Rob Gordon) between three parallel planes of action during the climactic conflagration.At a time when multiplexes are by and large clogged with mediocre crowd-pleasers, it’s encouraging to see a fantasy adventure set such new standards in creativity and excitement. Mortal Engines is not to be missed.

But Mortal Engines is hardly the sort of film you watch for the acting. It’s like Snowpiercer for kids – set inside a closed society that acts as a microcosm of our world, and its people. It’s like Titanic – a story about the fragile nature of human hubris. But above all, it’s a fun time at the movies, an uncommonly smart and vibrant film for children, to save them from those pesky Minions.

Ratings:2.5/5 Review By: Shalini Langer Site:  Indian Express

After a while, the scenes are a blur, of metal, machines, and loud music. It’s obvious director Rivers had to pack in a lot to see this series started, but by the time he ends, the prospect of some more of this to follow seems daunting. With London exhausted by a never-ending Brexit drama, it almost seems cruel to put it through this battering.
