Adapted from the book series, this bleak future is dominated by enormous, elaborate “traction cities.” In this case, the travelling London is a steampunk assemblage of landmarks that tramples thru Europe “eating” smaller machine municipalities. It’s up to a young couple to save the peaceful static towns from this giant predator. If you can get past the unlikely, unrealistic concept, you’ll be left with a traditional post-apocalyptic plot. The action is plentiful, but not special. Given that it was shot and produced by folks in New Zealand (known for their excellent visual effects), you can expect everything to look convincingly real. The filmmaking is sufficiently absorbing, but never exciting or original.

 

2.5 out of 5 stars (2.5 / 5)
