Show­time Ac­tion, 3.15pm

★★ Af­ter a planet-clear­ing catas­tro­phe, what re­mains of mankind is con­fined to a vast me­trop­o­lis deep un­der­ground. But now the power gen­er­a­tors are about to give out, and a so­lu­tion is needed ur­gently. An in­trigu­ing ad­ven­ture fan­tasy (based on the book by Jeanne Duprau) is slightly let down by rushed sto­ry­telling and an un­cer­tainty of tone. Worth check­ing out. Stars Saoirse Ro­nan, Bill Mur­ray. L.P.
