Here in subcity life is hard

City of Ember Post-apocalyptic movie based on the YA book about a city built as a temporary shelter but used beyond its expiration date.
Theater Location: Hyattsville
Noise Level: Too Loud.
The Skinny: Bill Murray: great, though I don't understand all of the mayor's motivation. Tim Robbins: OK, but it seems like a scene was cut. The kids: Fine, but it took me half the movie to realize that she was not calling him "Dude!" I would have liked the ending to offer some surprise, since the result wasn't exactly unexpected. The CGI was pretty bad.
