Mortal Engines is a film almost a decade in the works, made primarily because Peter Jackson didn’t want to lose the rights to Philip Reeve’s series. And I can’t blame him. The film’s opening battle shows that Mortal Engines will be a feast for the eyes — thanks in no small part to the work of VFX artist-turned-director Christian Rivers.

Unfortunately, that’s where the praise ends.

Hugo Weaving was a great Nazi in Captain America: The First Avenger, playing Cap's nemesis, Red Skull. And given that it was a comic book movie, meaning time and space are fluid -- and given that any non-Loki villain has failed to really capture people's attention -- it's natural to want Weaving back. So he's opened the door a crack to coming back to Marvel, a studio he didn't love working with.
