Thousands of years after civilization was destroyed by a cataclysmic event, humankind has adapted and a new way of living has evolved. Gigantic moving cities now roam the Earth, ruthlessly preying upon smaller traction towns. Tom Natsworthy (Robert Sheehan)—who hails from a Lower Tier of the great traction city of London—finds himself fighting for his own survival after he encounters the dangerous fugitive Hester Shaw (Hera Hilmar). Two opposites, whose paths should never have crossed, forge an unlikely alliance that is destined to change the course of the future.

i like how south east is bad in every movie and how south east is always some hannibals low lifes scums that want to destroy humanity, but if u check real life its right the opposite way :) or maybe i am just relating it too much with it
i loved it and i would definitely watch it again!. It was such an underrated film. Ive never read the books before but after watching the film, i started to read it and slowly understand the whole concept ❤
I just wish they would have shown more big cities and fights between them, more action and eye-candy stuff, less talking.
Example: It took 1 minute for Tom to pick a damn pilot jacket, they could have shown another big city during that time. I have a feeling that they didn't make enough world building, in the books there are several BIG cities, in the movie we only see London, I wanted to explore much much more, darn it. And the crazy editing/clipping gave me a headache, when it was a 1-2 minute dialogue they changed camera like 10 times a second, why? Otherwise it was amazing but just too little of the good stuff, I wanted to see a lot of different huge moving cities and life aboard, instead of flash-backs and irrelevant dialogue, grrrrr. Nevertheless I really liked it because of the few higlights.
As a male, this is what I learned from watching this movie last night.
-Potrayed as either evil or with negative characterists. Always. This is a constant.
Always strong and have alpha like characteristics. Always seen with positive characteristics.
-woman are better than man at everything.
-Asian trans? Asian female? Asian male? Who cares! Its *diverse* now! Our Asian tomboy is more of a man than Tommy boy. What a joke.
-Tom is a useless dumbass but the MC clings on to him only because he's cute (good side fuck for her i suppose or some stupid, degrading shit like that)
-MC treats her "love interest" Tom LIKE ABSOLUTE SHIT THE ENTIRE TIME. Not one moment of ACTUAL bonding and then all of a sudden she's confessing. Felt totally unnatural and forced. Not one bit of emotional bonding(telling eachother pity stories doesn't count). Seems like their "love" is a reflection of todays Leftist Societal Mindset, ie; Lust not love. Looks not character.
All in all, if this was a good book, it was turned into an SJW sublimal activist movie. Garbage. Never watch Hollywood. They cant help themselves, THEY LOVE PUSHING THIER AGENDA INTO EVERYTHING.
All in all, it was okay but the subversive push of Leftist politica were unwelcomed and ruined the experience for me.
I wish that was not the whole thing and there will be an part 2 for it doe maybe some of the slave selling jipsys try make the same weapon and ..... or idk but if someone is with me about it like or comment i guess xD
I wanna watch this real bad, already reading the series now. WTF, no one said anything no commercial not even in the movies, etc... that's they they lost $100 million, cuz no one knew about this movie. My cousin was like "Idfk" and I'm like "sigh.. Sshhiitt son. God dam..."
Before i watched movie with my GF, i asked her Mortal engine or aquaman and glad we choose aquaman, and 2 days later me and my friends choose spider verse and after that, the reviews about mortal engine showed on my youtube and glad i didnt choose mortal engine

As a child, there was a portrait in our family home in Paris that I always loved. Today, it’s known as Maya with Doll – but to me it was just a portrait of my mother, albeit a remarkable one. “Your grandfather was a painter,” she would say, whenever the subject of the canvas, one of many that hung around the house, came up in discussion. It was only when I began school, and whispers about my heritage started to follow me, that I realised what an understatement that was. My grandfather was far more than a painter. He was the defining figure of 20th-century art – and, as I would learn later from years of academic study, a true genius. It was a revelation that would shape the course of my life in many ways. When Picasso died – in 1973, the year before I was born – he left behind 45,000 works, not to mention personal objects and correspondence.
