CITY OF EMBER (2008) Graphic Review

  • By John Robert
  • 10 Oct, 2008

SYNOPSIS
For generations, the people of the City of Ember have flourished in an amazing world of glittering lights. But Ember's once powerful generator is failing... and the great lamps that illuminate the city are starting to flicker. Now, two teenagers in a race against time, must search Ember for clues that will unlock the ancient mystery of the city's existence, and help the citizens escape before the lights go out forever.

REVIEW
Tag line: "Welcome to the City of Ember. As a valued member of society, you have been chosen to keep the flame of humanity alive and burning brightly. Because of you, the human race can hope for a long and prosperous future."

Now that is a powerful life mission. I like it. It is a great motto for life. This noble mission may seem overwhelming, but can be reduced to simply: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” If you do, it will be said that you kept the “flame of humanity alive and burning brightly.” May this film so encourage you to do just that.
