City of Ember Family science fiction film set in a post-apocalyptic future. After an event in the future that the narrative doesn't delve into, the earth becomes uninhabitable, so the remaining survivors decide that they will have to build a city deep under ground in order for humanity to survive. It is presumed that the knowledge of the world above, and what once was and was lost, would devastate the underground society with mass depression, so it is decided that the founders would not tell the later generations about mankind's past. Instead, they are left with a sealed box with a message, set to open after 200 years, when presumably it is safe to come back up to the surface. This is the first 2 minutes of the film. What follows is fairly intriguing and entertaining, but my overall opinion of it was so so. The ending also felt a bit anti-climactic. I give it 3 out of 5.
