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.
Although this movie does not offer big ticket names, it does offer a good story line and good special effects. The kids enjoyed this movie and I did not hate watching it with them. I would recommend this to sci-fi after the end of the world type movie watcher, or anyone with children that enjoy fantasy but that are not to young to understand a story line.
