The only difference is that The Golden Compass was a lot better. City Of Ember is one of those films that are visually amazing but doesn't greatly focus on the plot and characters. I enjoyed it for its effects but as far as ... read more

The City of Ember is taken from the book by the same name. I have read the book and was really looking forward to seeing this movie.

The future kind of sucks. (355 movies items)

"Reason for the future sucking: An entire underground city, totally dependent on somewhat limited power, is in danger of coming to an end. Year it takes place: Unknown, but presumably sometime after The Big One. Or the year 247, according to underground city's time line."
