Everything Wrong With Mortal Engines In 13 Minutes Or Less

The books are apparently pretty good. This movie? Not so much. Yes, it has sins, and we'll list them for you, but more importantly... this movie isn't good.
Thursday: Not sure yet, but there will be sins.
Remember, no movie is without sin! Which movie's sins should we expose next?!

    This is literally one of the dumbest ideas ever. The amount of energy wasted on moving entire cities around renders the entire concept preposterous and anyone with the knowledge to even build these things would be smart enough to know how ludicrously inefficient and preposterous it is. Not surprisingly, it's a YA novel idea. Teens are idiots, as are those who write for them.

    I don’t consider it a sin to use common plot devices that stray from reality. After all, isn’t that what a movie is? There were some points that he made that were fair, but “why haven’t you killed him already” and other things were unfair to say the least. No one wants to watch a movie that ends with an anti-climactic shot to the head. If that’s how the movie was written, the end would have been much more dissatisfying. This channel in general would be more interesting to me if plot holes or even just extreme miscalculations on the script writer’s part. Instead I watched the video annoyed at how picky his analysis was.

    A part that I thought was dumb was how the people inside the wall built there city on the wall, like why would you put everyone on the very thing that would be the focus of an attack, maybe there was an explanation in the book but that just seemed stupid to me

    0:50 The best moving city/house and other moving things where you can live is in Howl moving castle. These are nothing compare to that/those. In a much better story/movie. I can't stay story, because I didn't read the books so maybe those are good.

    If she really wanted to kill the guy when she had the opportunity why the fuck didn't she go for the head, or better yet the jugular vein the dude would have bled out in like 2 minutes maybe less, or the heart? Stab the liver it's really easy to find, or the spleen, but no lets stab him in the one area on the torso that gives him the best chance to survive a stab wound. Fuck off Hollywood.

  53. Alex Kirkpatrick

    What is the premise of the movie exactly? old advanced human civilization somehow died out and the remaining humans figured it would be more practical to have moving cities constantly roam and destroy the land? What!? Why not rebuild civilization and continue with what works like Farming, building shelter out of wood, cement, stone etc, have a legal system, as much as people don't like the idea but the fact of the matter is when you have a certain number of people living together there needs to be some sort of governing organization (leadership) and history has shown and continues to show us that Monarchs, communism, legalist, militant and other similar governments don't work well at all and are doomed to fail. And in terms of democracy I have a quote from a senator I heard once "Democracy is the worst form of government in the world, it's corruptible, unfair, and an absolute nightmare to maintain. But! It's better than everything else human civilization has ever tried." So I really don't get the idea of this entire movie, it makes no sense, give's the impression that every human is dumber than a box of rocks yet somehow are able to create massive works of engineering that makes no sense but somehow is. Look if human kind does somehow create an apocalyptic scenario (like nuclear mutual assured destruction) for example, the most likely actions the remaining humans on earth will do is what humans have always done and continue to do in a dire situation, they will survive by forming back into groups, working together to rebuild civilization slowly and hopefully learn from the mistakes of the past so they can make life more tolerable in the future and after some time make a slue whole of new mistakes. Not revert back into a state of barbarism, murder, and class systems, people are smarter than that, usually, (religious organizations and cults exempt of course, they are doomed to repeat their mistakes always. Jehovah's witnesses, Scientologists are a good example of this).

    While I totally get it that cynicism is baked in, and I LOVE CinemaSins and you're spot on 98% of the time as usual...I will say I found the sub-plot with Shrike and Hester tear-worthy, and I doubt I'm the only one. A lot of us are suckers for stuff like that, even in bloated incoherent messes like this.
