Although the film’s length demands patience, it is a meticulous recreation of an event that represents a history lesson as well as an effectively crafted drama.

"Destroyer" keeps the tone dark, eschewing anything resembling a traditional crime story and allowing Nicole Kidman's performance to take front stage.

A well-paced science fiction action thriller with elements of drama, whimsy, and a strong inter-species buddy movie element.

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

It may peter out on the way to an anticlimactic conclusion but it’s fun while it lasts and the three peerless female leads deserve recognition.

Strikes an effective balance between satire and homage and mines the most common ore of the old-time Westerns.
