As shepherded by filmmakers with a penchant for visual storytelling, "Mortal Engines" is two hours well-spent.

Run Time: 1:57

MPAA Rating: "PG" (Violence)
Genre: Animated/Adventure
Director: Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey, Rodney Rothman

A respectable venture that fails to generate the kind of gripping, compulsively watchable melodrama and adventure needed to keep the audience engaged.
