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.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: City of Ember is visually arresting, and boasts a superb cast, but is sadly lacking in both action and adventure.
Built upon a bedrock of dazzling and richly constructed sets -- think Dr. Seuss meets Jules Verne...

Common Sense Says
Fast-paced fantasy has lots of tense moments.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this fantasy based on the popular middle-grade novel of the same name doesn't have much to worry about in the way of sexual content, language, drinking, or strong violence. But its constant tension and often-dark mood -- it's about a decaying underground city founded to make sure humanity survived the end of the world -- make it too intense for the youngest viewers. The teenage main characters face challenges ranging from corrupt officials to a ravenous giant mole; they navigate these problems with persistence and resourcefulness.
