DVD Review -- City of Ember

Summary: Two teenagers living in Ember race to find a way out of the underground city before the generator dies and the city is left in darkness.

Review: Positively, the special effects are good and there are a few fun action sequences. Other than that, I am pretty indifferent to the rest of the movie. There were puzzles for the teenagers to solve but you never felt like you were there helping them. Instead they would just point to the map and run in a direction. The acting was good but the story just didn't translate well on screen. Rating: * out of 5

My brother felt the same way. I thought it was alright, but the book was far better. My biggest issue was with the insanely huge animals/bugs...those could have been left out.
