A mysterious young woman, Hester Shaw, emerges as the only one who can stop a giant, predator city on wheels devouring everything in its path. Feral, and fiercely driven by the memory of her mother, Hester joins forces with Tom Natsworthy, an outcast from London, along with Anna Fang, a dangerous outlaw with a bounty on her head.
When Hester's mother name is revealed to be Pandora Shaw, some viewers drew attention to the name of the software brand. This is actually a recurrent theme in the books, in which many characters have "ancient names" which are actually trademarks: Windolene Pye, Daz Gravy, Nutella Eisberg, Napster Varley, and Nabisco Shkin are all characters in the sequels. Others, like Chudleigh Pomeroy, are named after places in Devonshire, England, where author Philip Reeve lives. See more »
At several points, Shrike manages to catch up with Hester, even going so far as to know which specific room she is in at Airhaven. Yet it is never explained how he is able to effortlessly track her. See more »

The movie starts with a great sequence introducing us to the post apocalyptic-steampunk world, and how it works. But from their on the movie is predictable and rushed, with story lines that you have seen elsewhere and executed better elsewhere. It's predictablility wouldn't hurt if the story and most of its characters were compelling enough to allow the audience to be invested and care. As the third act of the movie began I quickly tried to rummage through the entire movie trying to justify watching the movie and I was left with only a few reasons. One of them was the world created.
Standout character: Shrike, solid arc and amazing design. (You have seen this character in the trailer).
