RT on DVD: Max Payne, Saw V, King Kong on Blu-ray
Plus Repo! The Genetic Opera, City of Ember and more.
As the subterranean denizens of the City of Ember fall under threat of permanent darkness -- and, accordingly, death -- two kids, Lina (Saoirse Ronan) and Doon (Harry Treadaway) must race against the clock to decipher age-old clues hidden within the city. In adapting Jeanne Duprau's novel of the same name, director Gil Kenan (Monster House) delivers smart entertainment for family audiences (and doesn't pander to kids, like many preteen flicks) but has trouble crafting exciting action sequences and navigating plot holes. Sadly, no additional City of Ember bonus features accompany the disc.
