For generations, the people of the City of Ember have flourished in an amazing world of glittering lights -- underground. But Ember's once powerful generator is failing... and the great lamps that illuminate the city are starting to flicker.
Now, in a race against time, the citizens must search Ember for clues that will unlock the ancient mystery of the city's existence, and escape before the lights go out forever.
Based on the novel by Jeanne Duprau.
Very suprising movie, great story and very fun to watch.
I had high expectations going in but after watching it i can only say its an absolutely ridiculous movie.
If I could give this movie less than 1 star, I would. The "river" looked like it was designed only to become a thrill ride at disneyland. Bill Murrey must have been hard up to play in this horrid "adaptation" of a pretty fine book. Read the book, skip the movie.
