Visionary filmmakers Tim Burton (The Corpse Bride, Charlie and The Chocolate Factory) and Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted, Nightwatch) join forces to produce wunderkind director Shane Acker's distinctively original and thrilling tale. 9 stars Elijah Wood, John C. Reilly, Jennifer Connelly, Martin Landau, Christopher Plummer and Crispin Glover and features the music of Danny Elfman.

When 9 (The Lord of the Ring's Elijah Wood) first comes to life, he finds himself in a post-apocalyptic world. All humans are gone, and it is only by chance that he discovers a small community of others like him taking refuge from fearsome machines that roam the earth intent on their extinction. Despite being the neophyte of the group, 9 convinces the others that hiding will do them no good. They must take the offensive if they are to survive, and they must discover why the machines want to destroy them in the first place. As they'll soon come to learn, the very future of civilization may depend on them.

Ok as we all know most animated movies are family fun films this is the opposite a dark movie that reminded me of matrix monsters and little big planet sack boy.
So its way to scary for children and although I as an adult can appreciate many types of films I am not really sure who is the target audience here.
I will not spoil it I never like to give away story as I hate reading reviews that give it all away so annoying.
So this is my sum up of the film amazing first class visuals I would say almost taking annimation to a new level.
Fairly well voice acted characters that all have their own strengths and weaknesses one to brash brave to the point of stupid another to much like a teacher that thinks they know whats best for everyone else.
The script although not original very terminator or matrix does have enough originality to make this movie a unique experience.
So if you want a very dark annimated movie instead of cute and fluffy you will love it but how many people are ready for a terminator meets sack boy film remains to be seen

 The Unique Animated Movie That Is 9

| | See all danieleast's reviews (8)

i would like to start off by writing this review by saying that 9 is not your typical animated movie...

to sum this film up, it's almost like watching a video game in a sense that there are 4 villain characters or as there called in video games; 'bosses' - Boss one - Cat Beast, Boss Two - Winged Beast, Boss 3 - Snake / Seamstress Beast and Boss 4 being the utterly HUGE one that when you fight it, beat it, rejoice over the fact you've done it then only to find out you've ticked him off to the point he turns into a rage machine and well... you either beat the boss or it beats you...

now this isn't to say it's all action, there is some very good and unique character development.

the 'rag dolls' (as Shane Acker calls them) are the ones that make up the character of the scientist -the 9 of them as individuals have wonderful personalities of which make up and give an idea of what sort off character the scientist was...

BASICALLY to sum the story up The Scientist created the fabrication machine, of which basically became corrupt (due to its human superiors using it for war) and created other machines to attack humanity, with humanity being at the brink of extinction, the scientist created 9 rag dolls to basically continue life, in doing this he gave parts of his soul to each of the 9 rag dolls of which each one adopt part of his personality I.E rag doll '7' adopts the scientist will to fight.

The whole setting of the film is very eery and post-apocalyptic, however with a name like Tim Burton behind any movie it's clear it's not going to be the most colourful or cheery movie out there.
If your thinking of showing a kid this movie (despite it being a 12) i would recommend adult supervision - i feel that it's not a 'scary' film - however it does have the odd 'jump' / 'shock moment'

straight off the bat i absolutely adored '9'.
the animation if not quite pixar quality is still wonderful, its an easy going film; a film that i feel is very underrated and over looked.

NOW i have the DVD version of this and i recently got the Blu Ray Limited Edition HardBack Book copy and i have to say - picture was wonderful and crisp same with the sound!
The book has some gorgeous art work; if you love concept art book's - despite this ones size - i recommend it, presuming you enjoyed the film and willing to part with the cash!

 A must have!!!

Well When I first watched this on film I thought WOW, But Still had the Tim Burton Feeling but in a good way. The Story was excellent, the blue ray quality and sound was spot on and the limited edition book Case was the icing on the cake. Films dont usually have great limited edition features but this was brilliant, Well worth what I payed for, A must have, But not recommended for small children Even thou its an animation.

 Truly Magical

If you want to lose yourself for a while in a piece of magic, watch this movie.
From start to finis, its a fantastic piece of work that on Blu-Ray looks even better than I thought possible.
Each detail is so carefully drawn and animated, you will grow to love these sack people as if they were real.
You will Laugh & you should probably cry as well, but either way, you will enjoy it.

 Whole mix of Tim Burton, rolled into 1 or should that be 9?

Was looking forward to seeing this movie, enjoy anything where Tim Burton has had a hand. This is extremely dark, totally suits the story and characters. The end & re-birth of the human race, hardly gonna be be bursting with colour!!! On first look this is Terminator & The Matrix rolled into 1. Burton's influence is everywhere on this, from Nightmare to Coraline to Beetlejuice, they're all there. It really is an excellent movie, some scaryish scenes of danger, but the youngest of kids should be fine with this. THe Blu-ray as expected is excellent, picture is fantastic, DTS soundtrack is brilliant, crank up the volume and secure your ornaments for the actions scenes!!! This version is great, the book has some excellent drawings and text from the movie, the back cover holds the disc securely too. Well worth the extra pennies.
