PG-13 | | Action, Adventure, Fantasy
In a post-apocalyptic world where cities ride on wheels and consume each other to survive, two people meet in London and try to stop a conspiracy.
As per usual in an adaptation of a young adult fantasy novel, the ages of the protagonists are all pushed up a bit. In the book, Tom and Hester are seventeen, Katherine Valentine is sixteen and Beavis Pod is eighteen.
I can remake you, just as I was remade.
Hester Shaw: You're going to kill me?
Shrike: For a little while.
When Hester and Tom are rescued by the old couple in the centipede-like craft, they share a small room. Hester, while lying on her back, shares her sad life story. A tear rolls down her cheek, but, given the horizontal position she's in, this would be impossible. The tear should roll pass the side of her face.
