Is "City of Ember" any good?

I'm looking for movies to put on my Netflix queue. This one looked interesting. Any opinions?

I'd also appreciate any other movie suggestions.

Enh, it was worth a rent. Amazing production values, huge amazing sets, good performance from the main girl, interesting premise, but kinda slow and not really any action. It wasn't just kiddie-fare to be sure.

Definitely worth a rental. I enjoyed the movie and I'm a sucker for films that use sets to create a fantastic atmosphere, and this film does that very well.

I liked it. The story is simple and predictable, but it was executed in a entertaining fashion.
