Critic Reviews of "City of Ember"At the MoviesNovember 10, 2008
It's an unfortunate end to a promising movie.At the MoviesNovember 10, 2008
Ultimately, it didn't move me in any way.USA TodayOctober 10, 2008
Even if it occasionally goes off course, City of Ember provides audiences with a thought-provoking and family-friendly adventure.Toronto StarOctober 10, 2008
A thrilling adventure tale and teen fantasy that is grounded in real concerns about who is managing the planet.Seattle TimesOctober 10, 2008
Though City of Ember is a bit hurried in execution, this first live-action film by director Gil Kenan has the subterranean feel of a dream being described.San Francisco ChronicleOctober 10, 2008
The story, based on Jeanne Duprau's novel of the same name, is beautifully constructed. It builds until it reaches the point that it's one edge-of-your-seat moment after another.ComingSoon.netMarch 18, 2011
A lot of thought and effort has been put into City of Ember but the whole is never more than the sum of its parts. It wants to be an adventure story and a fable and a mystery all at the same time and never quite decides what it is.BrianOrndorf.comJune 02, 2010
One of the best family films of the year...if you like your kid movies with a little more bruising than normal.Times-PicayuneSeptember 04, 2009
Built upon a bedrock of dazzling and richly constructed sets -- think Dr. Seuss meets Jules Verne meets Mad Max -- and complemented by rock-solid storytelling, it's an enormously enjoyable family film.SFX MagazineMay 12, 2009
Ultimately, this journey to rekindle the fire of humanity fails to burn bright enough, leaving only the unpleasant taste of ashes.Cinema SignalsJanuary 14, 2009
A shaky platform of sense but the visual genius is so great, the film must be seen.Apollo GuideJanuary 13, 2009
In addition to being fascinating and exciting, City of Ember invites its young viewers to constantly ask questions and never give up.
